LESSON OF THE DAY 1286

Ayahs of the day:
And pray regularly, and give alms; whatever you send forth for your souls, you will find it with God; for God sees whatever you do. [2: 110]

Hadith of the day:
Part of the excellence of a person's Islam is in leaving alone what does not concern him. [Tirmidhi]

Wise quote of the day:
You must fill up your time with acts of worship so that no period of time elapses whether by night or by day, without being used in some act of goodness. [Imam al Haddad]

Guidance of the day:
The vigor and stability of our faith depends upon worship and good deeds. Muslims who neglect the religious obligations may end up doing little more than speaking well of certain ancestors who lived a disciplined, religious life. Faith not nourished by worship and good deeds eventually dies.

Praying five times a day strengthens our faith and renews our covenant with God. As long as we worship with an alert and conscious intent, we receive assurance from God and thereby strengthen our will and ability to fulfill our obligations. [M. Fethullah Gulen]

Food for thought:
Holding to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing at someone else -- you are the one who gets burned. For every minute you remain angry you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. If a small thing has the power to make you angry, does that not indicate something about your size.
