Lesson of the day 1352

Ayahs of the day:
Whoever does evil or wrongs his own soul then asks forgiveness of God will find God most forgiving, most merciful. [4: 110]

Hadith of the day:
Whoever removes a worldly hardship from a believer, Allah will remove one of the hardships of the Day of Resurrection from him. [Muslim]

Wise quote of the day:
The one who detaches himself from the world and turns to the Divine, is honored by the Divine turning unto him. [Ma'ruf Kharkhi]

Guidance of the day:
The sagacious believer should be ready for Layla t'ul-Qadr. He must remain watchful and constantly engaged in good works. The important thing is that when it does come it finds him absorbed in his good works, remembering Allah the Exalted, neither distracted, heedless, nor absorbed in frivolity.

It is unimportant whether he actually witnesses Laylat'ul-Qadr or not, for the works of he who is absorbed in devotions during it will be equivalent to the works of a thousand months, whether he is aware or not which specific night it is. He should watch for it and be  prepared every night of the month, because much disagreement exists between scholars as to which night it is. It can occur in other than the last ten nights, but more frequently does in them. This is the opinion of the majority of the scholars. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al Haddad]

Food for thought:
Gratitude is a duty ought to be paid, but which none have a right to expect. Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul. Gratitude is not only the greatest virtues, but the parent of all the others. There is as much greatness of mind in acknowledging a good turn, as in doing it. Nothing tires a man more than to be grateful all the time.
