Lesson of the day 1351

Ayahs of the day:
Whoever migrates for the sake of God will find many a refuge on earth, and plenitude. And anyone who leaves his home taking refuge in God and the messenger of God, and then death overtakes him, his reward is up to God; and God is most forgiving, most merciful. [4: 100]

Hadith of the day:
Be indifferent towards this world, and Allah will love you. Be indifferent to what is in people's hands, and they will love you. [Ibn Majah]

Wise quote of the day:
Don't grieve, everything you lose comes around in a another form. [Mawlana Rumi]

Guidance of the day:
Just as the believer should identify his good works in the month of Ramadan and show diligence, so should he be extremely careful to avoid transgressions and maintain himself at a distance from them, for sins committed during blessed times are much worse and deserving of much more severe punishment, as a counterpart for the the multiplication of rewards for good works at those same times.

In this noble month one should increase one's charities, assistance and comfort to the poor and inquire after the widows and orphans. One should increase one's recitations and studying of the Qur'an, secluding oneself in the mosques (I'tikaf), especially during the last ten days.  [Counsels of Religion]

Food for thought:
Every quarrel begins in nothing and  ends in a struggle for supremacy. A long dispute means that both parties are wrong. In quarreling the truth is always lost. When we quarrel, how we wish we had been blameless!
