LESSON OF THE DAY 1022
Those who despise Our signs are not concealed from Us: is the one cast into the fire better, or the one who arrives safely on the day of resurrection? Do what you will------God sees what you do, including those who scoff at the Reminder when it comes to them, since it is a mighty Book indeed; falsehood cannot reach it, from before it or behind it, as it is a revelation from One most wise, most praiseworthy. [41: 40,41,42]
Hadith of the Day:
Allah said: "Whoever comes close to Me by the span of a hand, I come closer to Him by a cubit. And whoever comes closer to Me by a cubit, I come closer to him by an arms length. And if he walks toward Me, I rush toward him. [Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
It is a mark of sainthood to show compassion to all God's servants, to be pitiful towards them, and to fight for them, and with them, against the forces of evil. [Imam Ghazali]
Guidance of the Day:
The greatness that you are promised is not the grandeur that you have been taught to value by the world. The guide offers you the Kingdom of Heaven, which is already yours, though you remember it only faintly. The world offers you itself, which you know well, but not well enough to know that its end is emptiness.
We show you the end of your strivings. Your attempts to find a resting place in the world has come to naught. This you can now see, and you are nearly ready to admit. Your growing inclination to turn about to your Father's House is the yearning which will surely bring you Peace. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
If you don't change you don't grow. If you don't grow, you aren't really living. You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. Escape from the cage you have built around yourself. Look inward for the answer and make the necessary changes in your life to find your freedom.
