LESSON OF THE DAY 1058
And in the alternation of the night and day, and the provision God sends down from the sky, by which God enlivens the earth after its death, and in the shifting of the winds, are signs for intelligent people. Those are the signs of God, which We recite to you in truth; so in what tale will they believe, other than God and the signs of God? [45: 5,6]
Hadith of the Day:
The prayer is the best matter. Whoever can increase (his prayer) should do so. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
One who wastes his 'time' is ignorant, while one who is neglectful of it is heedless. [Shaykh Abu Madyan]
Guidance of the Day:
As we grow, our ability to distinguish between what is right for us and what is wrong becomes finer and finer. Eventually we see that God is in everything, and there is nothing too small----or too big----to be unworthy of His Guidance. No act is too worldly for God, and no fork in the road is beyond our ability to make a correct choice.
Spiritual mastery begins on earth. Before we can enjoy Heavenly Bliss, we must conquer the marketplace. And that is precisely why we are here----to learn the difference between what is "right on" and what is right off. The mastery of discrimination is accomplished in traffic, at the staff meeting, and in giving the kids lunch. Since there are no traffic jams, board meetings, or luncheons in Heaven, here is our opportunity to master such challenges and gain control over our lives. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
True success is overcoming the fear of being unsuccessful. Half the things that people do not succeed in are through fear of making the attempt. We should not let our fears hold us back from pursuing our hopes.
