LESSON OF THE DAY 1284
And beware of a day when no soul can compensate for another soul, for anything; and no intercession will be accepted from one, and no ransom will be taken from one; and they will not be helped. [2: 48]
Hadith of the day:
Be in the world as though a stranger or a passerby. [Bukhari, Tirmidhi]
Wise quote of the day:
From the signs of relying in one's works is loss of hope when a downfall occurs. [Ibn Ataillah]
Guidance of the day:
The ego or self (nafs) is created and entrusted to us that we may know and declare the Creator's Existence and Unity. Therefore, we prove God's Existence with our own existence, and show God's Attributes with our own attributes. For example, our deficiencies and imperfections show God's all sufficiency and perfection; our privations show God's wealth and abundance; and our inability, weakness, and poverty show God's power, favor, and benevolence. Our proper response is to know and declare God's Existence throughout creation and to perceive His Light in all lights. [M. Fethullah Gulen]
Food for thought:
Consider how much more you suffer from your anger and grief, than from those things for which you are angry and grieved. How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it!
