Ayahs of the Day:
Secret conferences are from Satan, to grieve those who believe; but he cannot harm them at all, except by leave of God. So let the believers trust in God. [58: 10]
Hadith of the Day:
If a person has a standing in God's sight and he cannot reach that station through good works and piety, God afflicts him with such tribulations as illness until he does attain it. [Hakim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Sincerity is realized through slaughtering one's ego by deeming even one's greatest works as unworthy. [Shaykh al-Jonayd]
Guidance of the Day:
The most important element in overcoming the pains and crises of life is the willingness to take on the challenge that life is, instead of being a victim of your experiences. Next, you need to be conscious enough that you do not keep putting salt into your own wounds by dramatizing or personalizing, by living in the past, by being right about suffering, by withholding yourself, and so on.
Finally, you need to be complete with your experiences and to forgive and forget as soon as possible to free yourself to go on with your life. There is no way you can end up feeling like a victim of your experiences in life if you manage them with this kind of awareness of what it takes to recover and heal. [Tatelbaum, You Don't Have to Suffer]
Food for Thought:
You are never so strong as when you forgive. Life is an adventure in forgiveness, it is the sweetest revenge. The weak can never forgive, forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. He who cannot forgive others, breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself, for every man has need to be forgiven.
