LESSON OF THE DAY 1065
And you will see every people kneeling; every people will be summoned to its record: "Today you are being repaid for what you used to do. This record of Ours speaks about you in truth; for We have been transcribing what you have been doing." And as for those who believed and did good works, their Lord will admit them into divine mercy. That is the evident success. [45: 28,29,30]
Hadith of the Day:
I am a guarantor of a house in the highest part of Paradise for the one who makes his behavior good. [Abu Dawud]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Make patience your provision, satisfaction your mount, and the Truth your goal and objective. [Shaykh Abu Madyan]
Guidance of the Day:
Decide to make your life what you want it to be. No one else can decide for you, and certainly no one else can do it for you. Your decisions will line up life in the way that you choose it. The moment we make a decision------a firm one------the forces of the universe immediately set themselves in line to manifest that decision. If desired events are not coming to pass in your life, it is because you have not firmly resolved what you want it to manifest.
Examine your circumstances carefully, and you will agree that this is so. You life is a picture of the decisions that you have made. If your life is in conflict or confused, it is only because your decisions have been in conflict or confused. Declare your decision, and your life is certain to clear up. There is no slippage in the system of mind dynamics. What you think becomes reality. Think vague, and life will be vague. Think clearly, decide firmly, and act precisely, and your life will be a picture of surety. You will have it so, by your willingness to decide. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
When you get in a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
