Ayahs of the Day:
By the star when it descends, your companion has not erred and has not gone astray; nor does he speak from desire. It is just an inspiration with which he is inspired: one strong in power taught him, one full of intelligence: he stood up straight at the highest range of view, then he approached near and came near, as close as two bow lengths,or closer, and revealed to the servant of God what is divine inspiration. [53: 1 to 10]
Hadith of the Day:
May he be humiliated (he said this three times); he who found his parents, one or both approaching old age, but did not enter Paradise, (by serving them). [Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Glad tidings to the one who abandons the Dunya before it abandons him, and built his grave before he enters it, and pleased his Lord before he met Him. [Abdullah ibn Abbas radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
The secret of living well is not in the answers we amass but in the actions we take. No matter how many problems we solve, there will always be new ones to take their place. We can be more masterful in life if we allow problems to be an ever-present, challenging, and stimulating aspect of living. Accepting and embracing our own humanity is one of the secrets of living life truly satisfied and free of suffering.
Approach life with a greater commitment to satisfaction than to suffering. This can be an awesome task because of the vast opportunities and experiences we confront. At every moment we get to choose whether to live fully awake and alive to life or closed down and suffering. We are often unaware that how we live is our own choice. My wish is that from now on you will choose how you live and, out of choosing, that you will see your power to transform any and all of your experiences. [Judy Tatelbaum, You Don't Have to Suffer]
Food for Thought:
Death is a law, not a punishment. A faithful life in this world is the best preparation for the next. This world is the land of dying; the next is the land of living. The buried are not lost, but gone before. Worldly faces never look so worldly as at a funeral.
