Lesson of the day 1392
So abandon sin, open or secret; for those who commit sin will be repaid for what they perpetrated.[6: 120]
Hadith of the day:
It is sufficient evil for a man to look down upon his Muslim brother. [Bukhari & Muslim]
Wise quote of the day:
Every sin is a result of a person's putting the desires of his soul above his love for Allah and His Messenger. [Ibn Rajab]
Guidance of the day:
He who desires and pursues the world, but is unable to acquire it, remaining poor and destitute, he is a poor man, not a renunciate. If he is patient and contented in his poverty, he will have great merit and reward.
As for he who takes a large share of the world and enjoys its pleasures freely, then claims he neither desires nor loves it in his heart, he is presumptuous self deceiver. His claim is groundless and he cannot pretend to be following the example of any of the rightly-guided leaders and virtuous scholars, neither among the ancient nor the latecomers. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]
Food for thought:
Life is an adventure in forgiveness. You are never so strong as when you forgive. Forgiveness is the sweetest revenge. He who cannot forgive others, breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself, for every man has need to be forgiven. The weak can never forgive, forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
