Lesson of the Day 1316

Ayahs of the day:
And be conscious of the day when you will be returned to God; then every soul will be requited for what it has earned, and they will not be wronged. [2: 281]

Hadith of the day:
The strong person is not the one who can overpower others (in wrestling); rather, the strong person is the one who controls himself when he gets angry. [Bukhari]

Wise quote of the day:
He who truly fears his Lord has freed his tongue from vain talk, He whose heart is in the awe of his Lord, every thing in creation is in awe of him. [Fudhail ibn Iyaadh]

Guidance of the day:
Gentleness toward believers is to show compassion and solicitude for them. This is one of the noblest characters and most superior attributes. Compassion for Muslims is a duty and an incumbent right, but for weak, the destitute, and the afflicted it is even more of a duty and a priority.

He who does not find in himself pity and compassion when faced with the weak and the afflicted among Muslims, his heart is hard, overcome with callous, deprived of compassion. It is part of being gentle and soft hearted to feel humility in the heart and weep abundantly in fear of God. This is a noble attribute and a praiseworthy endeavor. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al Haddad]

Food for thought:
In happy moments, praise God.
In difficult moments, seek God.
In quiet moments, worship God.
In painful moments, trust God.
In every moment, thank God.

Dear Sister Iffath,

I pray that this finds you in good health. I read your inspiring story on your blog and I am now studying Arabic myself from your Arabic book and I am trying to memorize Quran as well. I hope that Allah continues to bless you in your efforts to support the Deen in our country and I hope that He blesses us with many more talented individuals like yourself. Inshallah one day I hope to be like you. Your brother,
