LESSON OF THE DAY 994
"And follow the best of what has been revealed to you from your Lord, before there comes to you the agony, suddenly, while you are unawares. Lest a soul might say, 'Ah, me! Woe is me for my neglect of my duty to God, for I was indeed a scorner!' Or lest one say, 'If only god had guided me, I would have been conscientious!' Or lest one say, on seeing the penalty, 'Had I but another chance, I would be one of the virtuous!' [39: 55 to 58]
Hadith of the Day:
No Muslim servant (of Allah) prays for his brother behind his back except that an angel say, "And for you the same." [Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The believer tries to find excuses for others, while the hypocrite looks out for mistakes. [Ibn al Mubarak]
Guidance of the Day:
To think positive is to thing with God, This must be true because God is positive and God can do anything. When we think with God, we can do anything. The key to success in life is to know without doubt that God is our Guardian who wants only the best for us. All failure stems from the mistaken thought that we do not deserve the best that life has to offer. We were created to be magnificent.
Positive thinking is an absolute prerequisite for all success in life. We've all got to believe in ourselves, our families, our friends, and our business. We have got to know the rightness of our hopes, our aspirations, and our dreams. God is looking for people who will trust in the dreams He gives to us. There are so few people who are willing to take the aspiration that God breathes into them and hold tenaciously to it until the possibility becomes a reality. The world is numb to imagination, to creativity, to life. The neon lights of the cities block our view of the stars. The world has settled for second best, and in so bargaining has settled for nothing. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
Hope is the Divine motivator. Hope is the thing with feathers----that perches in the soul----and sings the tune without the words-----and never stops----at all. Hope restores us, it keeps us busy and prevents us from becoming lazy. If we had no hope we would have no reason to go on. What you hope for doesn't matter, but rather the essence of hope itself. Allow the bird of hope to perch on a branch of the tree of life and never stop singing.
