Lesson of the Day 1358

Ayahs of the Day:
If anyone wants the reward of the world, God has the reward of the world and of the hereafter; and God is all-hearing, all-seeing. [4: 134]

Hadith of the Day:
Doing acts of kindness will protect one from calamity and a bad end. [Tabarani]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The worshippers of Allah do not worship in any way better than avoiding what Allah has forbidden. [Hasan al Basri]

Guidance of the Day:
Hajj -- If the pilgrim is wealthy, let him be liberal in giving to the poor and the destitute, in helping the weak and the needy, followed by all other Muslims. Let it be done sincerely for the Lord of the worlds.

During his journey, let him be humble, modest, and submissive. This is how he should approach the King, the Compeller and Proud. Behaving with arrogance or indulging in extreme forms of comfort will cause him to be rejected by God. The more humble and modest the pilgrim, the poorer he looks for the sake of God, the better, purer, more honorable and complete will his pilgrimage be. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]

Food for Thought:
The  wicked work harder to reach hell than the righteous to reach heaven. To be in hell is to drift; to be in heaven is to steer. Hell is truth seen too late -- duty neglected in its reason. To get to heaven, turn right and keep straight.
