LESSON OF THE DAY 1010
God is the one who has made the earth for you as an abode with the sky as a roof, and formed you, then refined your forms, and provided you with goods. That is God for you, your Lord; so blessed be God, Lord of the universe, the Living; there is no other deity, so pray to God, Lord of the universe. [40: 64,65]
Hadith of the Day:
By Allah, it is not poverty that I fear for you. But I fear that this world will be spread out for you (and given to you in abundance) as it was spread out for peoples before you, and then you will compete in it as they competed in it and it will destroy you as it destroyed them. [Bukhari & Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Applaud the good for their goodness, appreciate those who have believing hearts, and be kind to believers. Approach unbelievers so gently that their envy and hatred melt away. [Fetullah Gulen]
Guidance of the Day:
Give it all up and you will get it all back. This is an immensely potent formula for finding freedom and joy in living. Whenever we let go of something, God will either give it back to us, or give something better, or shows that we are better off without it. God is always giving exactly what we need for our highest good, and at no cost to anyone.
The idea that "He who humbles himself shall be exalted" is one of the most powerful and practical truths that can be encountered. It speaks of the miraculous principle that we do not need to "power-trip" our way through life; we will come out better in the long run if we allow
God to take care of us. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
Among the attributes of God, although they are all equal, mercy shines with even more brilliancy than justice. Mercy among the virtues is like the moon among the stars, dispensing a calm radiance that hallows the whole. It is the light that hovers above the judgment seat. Mercy is for the merciful.
