Lesson of the day 1324
Ayahs of the day:
O believer, be conscious of God with due reverence, and do not die without your having surrendered to God. [3: 102]
Hadith of the day:
No person conceals (the faults of) another in this world but Allah will conceal him (his faults) on the Day of Resurrection. [Muslim]
Wise quote of the day:
Reckon your self before you are reckoned and weigh your self before you are weighed. [Omar radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the day:
Good works are only possible in this world and are inconceivable elsewhere. The hereafter is a place of reward, not of action. Ask God's help and be patient, strive earnestly, hasten to good works before there comes a time when you are incapable of performing them, make the best you can of your time before the end overtakes you unaware!
You are prone to ailments, a target for the arrows of death. Your capital, with which you can buy perpetual happiness from God, is but your lifetime. Beware of spending your moments,days, hours, and breaths in that which is of no benefit, devoid of good, for your regrets will be prolonged and your grief after death immense, once you realize with certainty how much you have missed. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]
Food for thought:
Every charitable act is a stepping stone towards heaven. If we do not have any charity in our heart, we have the worst kind of heart trouble. What we frankly give, forever is our own. Prayer carries us half way to God, fasting brings us to the door of His palace, and the alms-giving procures us admission. One must be poor to know the luxury of giving. It is more blessed to give than to receive.
