Try to be Mine,
I will make everyone for you.

Story Worth Reading....

There was once a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him
a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must
hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down.

He discovered that it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all.

He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy should now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.

The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.

The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same!"

*********************************
(When we say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one! It won’t matter how many times we say 'I'm sorry', the wound is still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one! We need to learn to control our anger and we need to learn to forgive and Forget!)

Lesson of the day 1432

Ayahs of the Day:
Allah will not leave the believers in the state in which you are now until He separates what is evil
from what is good; nor will He disclose to you the secrets of the unseen. But He chooses of His
messengers whom He will, so believe in Allah and His messengers. And if you believe in Allah
and guard yourself against evil, yours will be a reward without measure. [3: 179]

Hadith of the Day:
Do not consider even the smallest good deed as insignificant; even meeting your brother with a
cheerful face (is a good deed). [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it
today. [Malcolm X]

Guidance of the Day:
When people give up enjoining what is right or even admitting that there are absolute and objective
values that are not subject to whims of mankind, then evil spreads. At the end of earthly time, the
world will virtually be without witnesses to truth, and truth will itself be scarce. No one will defend it.
One of the signs of end of time is the giving of the world to the disbelievers, with Muslims abandoning Islam and its claim upon Muslims to defend the truth and censure what is wrong. The truth has the power to penetrate the hearts of people, even those whose hearts have a seal. Humanity has a right to have witnesses living among them, those who are willing to defend the truth no matter how unpopular it may be. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
When one door closes another door opens, but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.

Pearls of Wisdom 433

1. The wise one is too judicious to waste his time in nonsense and to spend
his money in something that will not bring him return.

2. Determination can overcome unsurmountable barriers. It is the fuel that
propels one to higher virtues.

3. It is not enough to be merely intelligent; one needs true guidance as well.

4. Every true man, who is a little above the level of the beasts and plants, lives
so as to give a meaning and a value to his own life.

5. Life has value only when it has something valuable as its object -- for the
Believers it is the Akhirah (the Afterlife).

6.No material success can for a moment give such inner satisfaction as the sense
of living for a purpose.

7. Life is full of opportunities -- no great man ever complains of want of
opportunity.

8. Do whatever you do intensely. The immature mind hops from one thing to
another; the mature mind seeks to follow through.

9. The superior man is modest in his speech, but excels in his activity.

10. Adversity introduces a man to himself. He knows not his own strength
who has not met adversity.

Lesson of the Day 1431

Ayahs of the Day:

Those who purchase unbelief at the price of faith, not the least harm will they do to Allah,
but they will have a grievous punishment. Let not the unbelievers think that Our respite to
them is good for themselves; We grant them respite that they may grow in their iniquity;
but they will have a shameful punishment. [3: 177, 178]

Hadith of the Day:

A person who calls people towards doing good deed will get the same reward as those who
follow him and do good; and nothing will be diminished from the requital of the latter.
Similarly those who call people towards vice will have the same punishment as those who
follow him without any diminution in the punishment of the perpetrators. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:

All the doors to God are crowded except for one: the door of humility and humbleness.
[Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]

Guidance of the Day:

The next disease is the displeasure with blame. It runs against human nature to love it.
But the problem is when the fear of blame is coupled with the urgent desire for praise
and approval by others, which is often the case. Being concerned with "creation's
opinion" places a barrier between a person and the state of excellence in worship.

This is considered a disease because the result is guiding one's actions in difference
to the praise of people or in an attempt to avoid their blame or disapproval,
irrespective of the integrity or soundness of one's actions.

What we saw in the Companions of the Prophet (peace be upon him) was complete
loyalty to the ethics of Islam. Many times they were confronted with decisions that
would evoke displeasure among the people and tribes around Madinah; but they
still made them in accordance to the teachings of Islam. The more that we worry
about how our decisions will be received by people, the thicker the veil becomes
with regard to God and His guidance. [Purification of the Heart].

Food for Thought:

Most men succeed because they are determined to, enthusiasm can be rated even
above the professional skill.

Thoughts for the Day....

Happiness keeps you Sweet!!

Trials keeps you Strong!!

Sorrows keeps you Human!!

Failure keeps you Humble!!

Success keeps you Glowing!!

But only,
Faith keeps you Going.

Sometimes you are
unsatisfied with your life,

while many people in
this world are dreaming
of living your life..

A child on a farm sees
a plane fly overhead &
dreams of flying.

But,
A pilot on the plane sees
the farmhouse & dreams
of returning home.

That's life!!
Enjoy yours...

If wealth is the secret to
happiness,

then the rich should be dancing on the streets.

But only poor kids
do that.

If power ensures security,
then VIPs should walk
unguarded.

But those who live simply, sleep soundly.

If beauty and fame bring
ideal relationships,

then celebrities should have the best marriages.

Live simply.
Walk humbly.
and love genuinely..!


Where ever Allah plants you, be fruitful۔

Pearls of Wisdom 432

a cheap and forbidden substitute.

you yourself are unrefined.

Lesson of the day 1430

Ayahs of the Day:
It is only Satan who suggests to you to fear his followers; but have no fear of them. Fear Me
if you are believers. Let not those grieve you who rush headlong into unbelief; not the least
harm will they do to Allah; Allah's plan is that He will give them no portion in the Hereafter,
but a severe punishment. [3: 175, 176]

Hadith of the Day:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Allah says: " Whoever shows enmity to whom I befriend,
I declare war against him." [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The essence of knowledge is to know what obedience and worship are. [Imam Ghazali]

Guidance of the Day:
The key to avoiding or removing the disease of arrogance and boasting is to know yourself, your
origin, and your ultimate return. Whoever is humbled for the sake of God, God elevates in rank.
Haughtiness and gratitude cannot coexist in one vessel. Those who are grateful, God increases in
goodness. The station of arrogance only invites humiliation.

Humility, by nature, leads to gratitude, for when one is humble before God the Exalted, only then
does one see the vast mercy God bestows upon His creation, even upon liars and disbelievers.

In itself humility is a praiseworthy virtue, but when carried out excessively it results in abasement,
and it becomes abject abasement before people. Abject humiliation is disapproved of even in the
face of tribulation. Those who face tests with dignity and patience are praised. A hadith states,
"A believer never humiliates himself."Being humble is different from humiliation. Having
humbleness is one of the secrets of success, although it is hard on the soul. It is said, "Among the
most noble things of the world is a rich man who is humble.
[Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It is not a day when you lounge around
doing nothing, it's when you had everything to do and you have done it.

Some thoughts for the day....

Lesson of time

"When a bird is alive...It eats Ants,
When the bird is dead… Ants eat the bird!
Time & Circumstances can change at any time……..
Don’t devalue or hurt anyone in life.

One tree makes a million match sticks…
But when the time comes…
Only one match stick is needed
to burn a million trees...
So be good and do good."

A smile is something
you can't give away;
it always comes back
