LESSON OF THE DAY 986
We have set forth in this Recital every ideal for human kind, that they may take heed; a Recital in Arabic, free from distortion, that they may be aware. God has set forth a parable, of a man over whom a plurality of partners are wrangling, and a man secure in service to one man: are the two equal on comparison? Praise be to God. But most of them do not know. The fact is you are going to die, and they too are going to die, Then you will, on the day of resurrection, debate in the presence of your Lord. [39: 28 to 31]
Hadith of the Day:
The believer's shade on the Day of Resurrection will be the charity he or she has given. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Be not like those who get puffed up with pride in worldly good, and scorn the Truth. Enjoy the good things of life, but render thanks to Allah and obey His Law. [Abdullah Yusuf Ali]
Guidance of the Day:
Finding peace amid chaos is more valuable for our growth-----and service------than finding quiet amid quiet. Resist not evil, but overcome evil with good. Light is always more powerful than darkness. Evil, when confronted with love and positivity, flees like a thief in the night.
Our own awareness of God is always more powerful than anything in the world. Because our thoughts and our awareness are powerful, we have a responsibility to the people, and the world around us. Just as we would not want anyone to empty a trash can of negative upon us, we must take care not to disturb others with our thoughts. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
Truth is man's proper good, and the only immortal thing was given to our immortality to use. Keep one thing forever in view-----the truth; and if you do this, though it may seem to lead you away from the opinion of men, it will assuredly conduct you to the throne of God.
