LESSON OF THE DAY 1037
And it is God who accepts repentance from servants and pardons sins; and God knows whatever you do. And God responds to those who believe and do good deeds, enhancing them from divine bounty. But there is agony for unbelievers. [42: 25,26]
Hadith of the Day:
Lewdness does not appear in anything except that it blemishes it, and modesty does not appear in anything except that it beautifies it. [Ahmad & Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Do not sit idle, for indeed death is seeking you. [Hasan al Basri]
Guidance of the Day:
Adversity is our dear friend. It is the driving force that pushes us out of our comfortable nest and forces us to learn to fly on our own. We can really welcome adversity as a gift. Without it our growth is very slow. With it, we are transformed from fledglings into masters.
Every great person has a history of adversity. No one has ever made a contribution to humanity without first undergoing a certain amount of trials. Adversity can forge an immature soul into a powerhouse of strength. Every one of the saints came to be what they were through conquering challenges. It was not by chance that these great ones faced tremendous adversity------they were, in fact, made great by it. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
There are only two kinds of men: the righteous who believe themselves sinners; the rest, sinners, who believe themselves righteous. Other men's sins are before our eyes; our own behind our backs. We are all sinful. Therefore whatever we blame in another we shall find in our own bosoms.
