Lesson of the day 1326
Ayahs of the day:
You are the best community evolved for humankind; you enjoin what is fair, and forbid the repugnant; and you believe in God.....[3: 110]
Hadith of the day:
Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him honor his guest. [Bukhari]
Wise quote of the day:
There is no hajj nor guarding the enemy lines and no jihad which is more difficult than restraining the tongue. [Fudhail ibn Iyaadh]
Guidance of the day:
Make hast, postpone not, for procrastination is an evil, since human beings are liable to suffer from various problems and become occupied with numerous things.
The stronger one's faith and the better one's works -- the greater one's fear will be; and the weaker one's faith and the worse one's works -- the less one's fear will be and the more likely one is to feel secure and deceive oneself. Observe this in yourself and in others, you will see how evident it is. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]
Food for thought:
Between two evils, choose neither; between two goods, choose both. Life often presents us with a choice of evils rather than of goods. He who chooses the beginning of a road chooses the place it leads to. It is the means that determine the end. Life is all about choices -- we cannot escape the consequences of wrong choices.
