LESSON OF THE DAY 1046
By the clarifying Book-----We have made it an Arabic Recital that you may understand. And it is in the matrix on scripture, in Our presence, sublime full of wisdom. Should We pass you over with the Reminder, since you are a wasteful people? How many prophets have We sent among the ancients? But they mocked any prophet who came to them. So We destroyed the most ruthless of them, and so transpired the example of the ancients. [43: 2 to 8]
Hadith of the Day:
The true muhajir (the one who emigrates) is the one who avoids what Allah has prohibited. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
One who is granted the sweetness of intimate converse has sleep taken from him. [Shaykh Abu Madyan]
Guidance of the Day:
The path of purposeful action bears a double blessing for those who walk it. Right action is the key to the reestablishment of God consciousness within your world. The world has lost the awareness of God in its actions, and so it is through the action that awareness must be restored. Find for yourself a comfortable balance of stillness and activity, and serve the world from such a point of equilibrium.
Simply love God, hold to your purest intentions, and remain true to your inner Light. The mirror of right action is its willingness to spring forth from good intention. Let your deeds speak your message to the world. Your actions have a power to heal. When you chose the responsibility to heal the world, you instantly allow God to heal the world through you. This is your role as a messenger of Light. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
Our greatest illusion is reliance upon the security and permanence of material possessions. The only security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability. Security depends not so much upon how much you have, as upon how much you can do without.
