Ayahs of the day:
That was a people that has passed away; they will get what they earned, and you will get what you earned. And you will not be questioned about what they used to do. [2: 134]
Hadith of the day:
Rights will be given to those who they are owed on the Day of Judgment, even the hornless sheep will have retaliation from the horned sheep. [Muslim]
Wise quote of the day:
Do not dispute anyone in any matter as far as possible. For in argumentation lies much harm and its evil is greater than its benefit. [Imam al-Ghazali]
Guidance of the day:
We cannot attribute evil to God, for that comes from ourselves. We have only ourselves to blame for what we suffer. What happens to us is based upon our choices and actions, and accords with the law of the cause and effect that God has decreed for His creation. Thus, those who persistently adhere to false beliefs and refuse to listen to and obey Divine commandments gradually lose the ability to perceive the truth.
Happiness in the Hereafter is the natural consequence of our efforts to attain righteousness and inner illumination while alive. God does not cause anyone to go astray. Deserving His favor and blessings or deserving their withdrawal depend upon our free choice, and nothing else. [M. Fethullah Gulen]
Food for thought:
Things do not change unless we change. If there is something we wish to change in a child/adult, we should first examine it and see whether it is something that could better be changed in ourselves. If we don't change, we don't grow, if we don't grow we aren't really living. They must often change, who would be constant in happiness and wisdom. We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.
