Lesson of the day 1332

Ayahs of the day:
Did you think you would enter the garden without God finding out who among you struggled, and who were steadfast? [3: 142]

Hadith of the day:
There is no cause for envy except in two cases -- a man to whom Allah gives wealth and enables him to spend it appropriately (in ways dictated by Islam), and a man to whom Allah gives wisdom and he rules in accordance with it and teaches it. [Bukhari]

Wise quote of the day:
If the belief is truly in the heart, the deeds will not delay in following it whatsoever. The complete recognition of Allah and proper love cannot be in the heart if it does not have an over riding effect on the outward deeds. [Ibn Taymiyyah]

Guidance of the day:
Ignorance (about the knowledge of deen) is the origin of all evils and afflictions in both this world and the next. Were all the enemies of an ignorant man to join hands to harm him, they would be unable to cause him as much harm as he causes himself.

A poet says:
His foes never harm the ignorant
As much as the ignorant harms himself

And another has said:
Ignorance is the death before death
For their bodies are tombs before their tombs. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]

Food for thought:
A mortgage casts a shadow on the sunniest field. Do not accustom yourself to consider debt only as an inconvenience; you will find it a calamity. A man in debt is so far a slave. Debt is the slavery of the free. Conclusion -- never spend your money before you have it.
