Lesson of the day 1403
Those who say; "Our Lord! we have indeed believed: forgive us, then, our sins, and save us from the punishment of the fire." Those who show patience, firmness and self control, who are true (in word and deed), who worship devoutly, who spend (in the way of Allah), and who pray for forgiveness at the time before dawn. [3: 16,17]
Hadith of the Day
You cannot reach all people with your wealth, so let your smiling face and good character reach them. [Hakim]
Wise Quote of the Day
Know that you should reflect on God's complete awareness of you, and His seeing and knowing all about you. [Ibn Alawi al Haddad]
Guidance of the Day
For most people today, happiness is sought by acquisition of material goods. The believer, though, finds happiness in genuine worship, a connection with other-worldliness. The human being is a creature which cannot pursue two things simultaneously, especially when they are on the opposite poles of the universe.
Islam connects the definition and understanding of happiness with what is permanent and real. True happiness is derived from one's relationship with God and happiness in the Hereafter. This includes living a life that prepares one for this destiny. Regarding one who is engaged in preparing for tomorrow or writing works of knowledge, extended hope is not blameworthy.
If one is happy in the next world, this is the greatest possible achievement, regardless of one's material accomplishments in this life. [Purification of the Heart]
O'Allah grant us the true understanding of this world and the next,ameen.
Food for Thought
Some people no matter how old they get never lose their beauty, they merely move it from their faces to their hearts
