LESSON OF THE DAY 1023
Nothing is said to you but what was said to the messengers before you: your Lord has forgiveness and painful punishment too. Yet if We had made it a foreign recital, they surely would have said, "Why haven't it's verses been organized logically? Eh? Non-Arabic and an Arab?" Say, "It is for those who believe, for guidance, and a medicine. " As for those who don't believe, there is deafness in their ears, and it is blindness to them. They are called from a far away place. [41: 43,44]
Hadith of the Day:
If the believer knew what Allah has with Him of punishment, no one would ever hope to achieve His Paradise. And if a disbeliever knew what Allah has with Him of mercy, no one would ever despair of achieving His Paradise. [Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
A person who discourses on religion without remembering that he will be questioned by God on what he says knows the value of neither religion nor his own mind. [Imam Abu Hanifa]
Guidance of the Day:
There is no such thing as falling outside of God, for this would mean that there is somewhere that God is not. The only place we can fall is in consciousness, and as soon as we rise back into God-consciousness, we see that He was with us always; we were just not looking at Him.
There are lessons, in fact, to be learned in every place. The mark of spiritual mastery is the ability to remember God wherever we go, and through whatever we experience. We are living in a world of permanent change. Everything changes, and the more firmly we have this understanding imbedded in our consciousness, the easier it is to remember God as we go through all of the transformations that are necessary for our total evolution. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore. As soon as there is life, there is danger. He that is not in the war is not out of danger. One never finds anything perfectly pure and.....exempt from danger. Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid.
