Lesson of the day 1320

Ayahs of the day:
Say, "Whether you conceal what is in your hearts or reveal it, God knows it. And God knows what is in the heavens and what is on earth. And God is capable of all things." [3: 29]

Hadith of the day:
The Muslim is the brother of his fellow-Muslim. He does not wrong him, let him down or despise him. [Muslim]

Wise quote of the day:
The whole matter of love and slave hood rests upon fear, hope and the love of the Divine. [Shaqeeq al-Balkhi]

Guidance of the day:
Ali -- may God be pleased with him -- said. "The thing I fear most for you is that you follow passions and have long hopes. As for following passions, it repels one from truth; and as for long hopes, they make one forget the hereafter. He who forgets the hereafter does not work for it, he who does not work for it reaches it bankrupt of good works, and there is neither salvation nor gain in the hereafter without them. Should he seek to be returned to this world at that time to do these good works, he will be prevented from doing so. Then his remorse and sorrow will be immense, at a time when remorse will avail nothing." [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]

Food for thought:
Bread caste on the waters comes back to you. The good deed you do today may benefit you or someone you love at the least expected tome. If you never see the good deed again -- at least you will have made the world a better place, after all, isn't that what life is all about.
