LESSON OF THE DAY 1035
God is kind to mortals, providing at will for anyone; being the Almighty, the All-capable. Whoever desires the fruit of the Hereafter, We increase his fruit for him; and whoever desires the fruit of this world, We give him some, but he has no share of the Hereafter. [42: 19,20]
Hadith of the Day:
The one who is happy to have Allah respond to him during hardships and difficulties should increase his supplications during times of ease. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
A man while he is alive, needs a decent house to live in respectfully. If he has such a house, he should be grateful and endeavor for a house in the next world. [Imam Abu Hanifa]
Guidance of the Day:
Seek not to become good through future actions, for this would create an evil of the old, a creation of fantasy, and not of fact. Work, rather, to transmute, or refine your understanding of your work. In so doing, you raise your deeds to the highest, a position which they have always merited, but which you have not always accepted.
It is of the utmost importance to relieve yourself of the judgment of the activities of your sisters and brothers. In so doing, you free yourself as well as them. We do not judge any soul, for we lose not sight of Divinity. It is very difficult for you to know the purpose of another's work. The mind must be made to function for you as an instrument of blessing. All that you see is a matter of interpretation. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
People are lucky and unlucky.....according to the ratio between what they get and what they have been led to expect. Happy the man who early learns the wide chasm that lies between his wishes and his powers. We must like what we have when we don't have what we like.
