LESSON OF THE DAY 1018
As for those who say 'Our Lord is God' and are upright, the angels will descend on them: "Do not fear, but rejoice in the garden that you have been promised. We are your helpers in the life of the world and in the hereafter, where you will have whatever your souls desire, and you will have whatever you ask for, as hospitality from One most forgiving, most merciful. [41: 30,31,32]
Hadith of the Day:
Verily, those who have the most (wealth) will be the ones with least of the Day of Resurrection, except for the one who says, "This is for that, this is for that, and this is for that, (in other words, he gives the wealth away for good causes). [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
A reward is not a payment but a gift, a sign of Allah's generosity. Punishment is not a necessity, but a manifestation of justice. Allah is not obliged either to reward or to punish His creation,, which has no right to demand anything from Him. [Imam Birgivi]
Guidance of the Day:
When I leave this world, I do not want to be bound to anything--------not to any object, any person, any philosophy, any unfulfilled desire. I want to head straight for the Light, with no delays on the local track. My prayer is to drop all my luggage and to leave my arms free to embrace God and God alone. I don't want to have to come back for anything, unless I am to serve. I have never found any real or lasting pleasure in any physical object or person. Ironically, the more I have given up attachments to things and people, the more I am able to love and enjoy them.
As long as we see God, Peace, or Consciousness as outside of ourselves, we shall never know Him completely. The moment we find God within, our searching comes to an end, for we realize that He has been within us all along, and ever shall there remain. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
Nothing more detestable does the earth produce than an ungrateful man. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
