LESSON OF THE DAY 972

Ayahs of the Day:
Say, " It is a message of supreme importance: You ignore it. I have no knowledge of the higher angels when they debate: It has only been revealed to me that I am a plain warner. [38: 67 to 70]

Hadith of the Day:
In the evening, do not wait for morning, and in the morning, do not wait for evening. Take from your health for your weakness, and from your life for your death. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The one who constantly remembers death is ennobled with contentment, with his heart's activities directed toward obedience, and with prompt repentance (when wrongs occur). The one who is heedless of death is afflicted with the opposite of all three. [Imam al Mawlud]

Guidance of the Day:
There is a special place for those who are determined to succeed. The force of God rushes to their support with enthusiasm and encouragement. While there are few gifts that you can offer God, determination is one of them. It is the soul's way of demonstrating sincerity of aspiration. Hold fast to your dreams, for they are the stepping stones to the success for which you dream.

Know, as you strive, that there are and will be resting points-----oases-----where you may replenish your strength. Do not seek them or wait for them, but in the midst of your disciplines, know that when you have need for them, they will be shown to you. Continue with your will to grow. No effort, however small, goes unnoticed or unrewarded. Call upon the higher forces within you, and they shall most certainly give you their blessings in great measure. Your faith will carry you through travails. Your commitment to God is answered with His commitment to you. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Food for Thought:
Human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. If you want a trait/quality act as if you already have it, fake it till you make it. Everybody should do at least two things each day that he hates to do, just for practice.

What is meant by the hadith? -

"...Take from your health for your weakness, and from your life for your death. [Bukhari]"

I liked today's Food for thought advice - 'Fake it till you make it.' Then the action/ attitude becomes second nature, a part of yourself...
