LESSON OF THE DAY 1070
Those who reject the way of God and also block others from it, God lets their works be lost: while those who believe and do good works, believing in what was sent down to Muhammad----as it is the truth from their Lord-----God will remove their evils from them and will make them whole. That is because those who scoff follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord. Thus does God give people their models. [47: 1,2,3]
Hadith of the Day:
Know that victory accompanies perseverance, relief accompanies affliction, and ease accompanies hardship. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Sky-scraping material achievements are of no value to the true Muslim if they hinder rather than help his spiritual growth. [Abu Muhammad Asad]
Guidance of the Day:
Opportunities to give love are always waiting for us with outstretched arms, and God's promise becomes His gift when we are but willing to embrace them. There are infinite number of ways to serve. Each of the ways is equally important. Do not berate yourself because you are not a great doctor or a social activist.
Any service that we give is essential to the well-being of all. It is a marvelous web of interdependence that unites us. All are equally dependent on each other for our work in the world, and we are all equally dependent on God, Who serves us through one another. Sometimes we are not even aware of the importance of the service that we have rendered. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
Your success as family, our success as a society, depends not on what happens in the White House, but on what happens inside the house. Home is not where you live but where they understand you.
