LESSON OF THE DAY 1312
Those who give their wealth night and day, secretly and openly, have their reward with their Lord; no fear will be on them, and they will not sorrow. [2: 274]
Hadith of the day:
There shall remain a group in my nation, successfully upholding the truth, unharmed by those who oppose them, till the day of judgment. [Muslim]
Wise quote of the day:
The wealthiest person is the one who has abundance of taqwa. [Dhunnun al Misri]
Guidance of the day:
Distraction is blameworthy and may induce extreme harm. The distracted heart is that which does not awaken and become attentive when exposed to counsels or rebukes. It does not take them seriously, being so distracted and forgetful, so engrossed in its playthings and trivia, in the attractions of this worldly life and the pursuit of his passions.
It is to be distracted to read or listen to the Noble Qur'an, but neither reflect upon it, nor attempt to understand its meanings, neither obey its injunctions, nor its prohibitions, and neither accept its counsels, not it rebukes. The same applies for the traditions of the Messenger of God -- may blessings and peace be upon him -- and the discourses of the virtuous predecessors --may God be pleased with them. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]
Food for thought:
The mark of an immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of a mature is that he wants to live humbly for one. The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just. Respectable men and women content with good and easy living are missing some of the most important things in life. Unless we give ourselves to some great cause we haven't even begun to live.
