Lesson of the day 1385

Ayahs of the day:
It is God who causes the grain and the date stone to split and sprout; God brings forth the living from the dead, and is the one who brings forth the dead from the living. That is God for you; so how can you be deceived? [6: 95]

Hadith of the day:
Circulate knowledge and teach the ignorant, for knowledge does not vanish except when it is kept secretly (to oneself). [Bukhari]

Wise quote of the day:
Whenever you interact with people, deal with them as you would wish yourself to be dealt with by them, for a believer's faith is incomplete until he wants for other people what he wants for himself. [Imam al Ghazali]

Guidance of the day:
It is a most certain duty upon all Muslims to guard themselves thoroughly against all sins, for in them lies God's wrath and loathing, and furthermore, they are the cause of all the afflictions and catastrophes that befall people both in this world and the next. Should a person fall into a sin, he must repent to God immediately and strive neither to persist nor feel comfortable with it.

Every believer should repent continuously to God, renewing his repentance at every moment and in every situation, for sins are numerous, there are minor as well as major ones, manifest as well as hidden ones, and sins that the servant is aware of as well as others he is not. He may be asked to account for not making an effort to learn whether certain acts are sinful or not, as well as their having preliminaries and signs that, had he known them, might have allowed to do something about them. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]

Food for thought:
You must give time to your fellow men, even if it's a little thing, do something for others -- something for which you get no pay but privilege of doing it. What do we live for if not to make life less difficult for each other!
