Lesson of the day 1365

Ayahs of the day:
Believers, remember God's favor to you when some people intended to act against you, then withheld their devices from you. And be conscious of God; and let it be God in whom the believers trust. [5: 11]

Hadith of the day:
If the son of Adam had two valleys filled with wealth he would seek third, but nothing will fill the belly of the son of Adam but dust. [Bukhari]

Wise quote of the day:
It is harmful to avoid the thought of death. For no one can or will escape the sure and destined end that comes sooner or later to every mortal being. This meditation is therefore an essential necessity for every lover of God. [Shaykh Muzaffer Ozak]

Guidance of the day:
Let the parents beware to the extreme from praying against their disloyal child, for this can only increase him in harm, corruption, and disloyalty. Some of this damage is bound to cause more harm to the parents in this world. Since the prayers of the parents (for or against their children) are always accepted (by God), they should pray for, and not against them.

God may very well reform them through the baraka of their prayers, they may then revert to being loyal. The result will be that their parents will again benefit from their loyalty and be greatly pleased with them, while the children will obtain reward for being loyal and escape the sin of disloyalty. God it is who grants success and assistance. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]

Food for thought:
It is not the greatness of a man's means that makes him independent, so much as to smallness of his wants. Can anything be so elegant as to have few wants, and to serve them one's self?
