Ayahs of the Day:
Yes, We have made the Qur'an easy for them to recite and remember, but does anyone take a lesson? The warning also came to the people of Pharaoh: They repudiated Our signs, all of them, so We punished them with the punishment of a mighty one able to prevail. [54: 40,41,42]
Hadith of the Day:
The magnitude of otherworldly reward is proportionate to the magnitude of worldly tribulation. When God loves a people, He tries them. Whoever is content (with God's decree) will have Divine pleasure. Whoever is displeased (with God's decree) will have Divine wrath. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
In the end it's about you, your Lord and the Grave-----nothing else matters. [Shaykh Nuh Keller]
Guidance of the Day:
The game of life is not so much in holding a good hand as playing a poor hand well. Hurt is a fact of life. until we accept and allow the hurt as inevitable, we cannot begin to deal more effectively with the hurts of life. As human beings, we will hurt and be hurt. None of us is invulnerable. Not only do circumstances upset us, but we hurt each other, not necessarily intentionally or maliciously. We disappoint, criticize, oppose, anger, injure, and withhold from one another all the time.
Because we refuse to accept and include hurt and the suffering that may follow as an inevitable aspect of human experience, hurt takes us by surprise and we never learn effective ways to deal with it. It is not wrong to hurt, but it is tragic that we let our reactions to hurt and our fear of hurt run our lives. [Judy Tatelbaum, You Don't Have to Suffer]
Food for Thought:
We create our fate every day..... most of the ills we suffer from are directly traceable to our own behavior. Of course, fortune has its part in human affairs, but conduct is really much more important. You don't just luck into things......You build step by step, whether it's friendships or opportunities.
