LESSON OF THE DAY 990
God takes souls at their death, or in their sleep if they aren't dead, keeping those sentence to death, and sending the rest to a definite term. Surely there are signs in that for people who reflect. Do they take to intercessors other than God? Say, "Even though they have no power over anything, and no intelligence?!" [39: 42,43]
Hadith of the Day:
A believer sees his sins as if he is at the foot of a mountain and he fears that they will fall upon him. The evil-doer views his sins like a fly that lands on his nose that he just swats at. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Love of the saints is the proof of religion and religiosity. [Abdul Hakeem Murad]
Guidance of the Day:
How many things have you worried about that never came to pass? And if they did come to pass, were they as horrible as you imagined them to be? Probably not. One man actually kept track of all that he worried about. He discovered that of all his worries, 92 percent of them never came to pass, and of the 8 percent that did, he was somehow given the strength and ability to deal with them successfully. Our worries are paper tires.
We have nothing to fear but fear itself. The experience of fear is usually more debilitating than the event that we fear. A coward dies a thousand deaths, a hero only one. Fear is always the result of the absence of the awareness of Truth. When we know and feel the Truth, it is impossible to hold fear. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
Is there anything more to life than just being alive---------eating, sleeping, working and having children? Sooner or later we will come face to face with the questions, what am I supposed to do with my life? How shall I live so that my life will mean something more than a brief flash of biological existence soon to disappear for ever.
