Wise quote of the day:
We must see each others strengths and encourage those strengths, we must see others weaknesses and be patient with those weaknesses. Sometimes even look beyond what we see as weaknesses and move on with compassion, love and respect -- this takes true faith. [Dawud Whansby]
Guidance of the day:
He who fears God is one to whom profitable commerce has been granted. He who knows God but finds not in this knowledge all that he need, he indeed is wretched. He who serves God is never injured by what he may suffer in His service. What gains a servant from the eminence of wealth since all eminence belong to the God-fearing.
Taqwa is to obey God the Exalted's injunctions, and avoid what He has prohibited, outwardly and inwardly, together with feeling how formidable He is and being in fear, awe, and dread of Him. Taqwa is that Allah should be ever obeyed, never disobeyed; ever remembered, never forgotten; ever thanked, never (have his favors) denied. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]
Food for thought:
Forgive all who have offended you, not for them but for yourself. Forgiveness is the economy of the heart, it saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits. when we forgive, we in no way change the past, but we do sure change the future.
