Lesson of the day 1437

Ayahs of the Day:

Our Lord! Those whom you will admit to the Fire, You have abased them. For evil doers 

there are no helpers. Our Lord! We have heard a caller calling to faith; "Believe you in 

your Lord!" So we believed. Our Lord! Therefore forgive us our sins and remit from us 

our evil deeds, and take our souls in the company of the righteous! Our Lord! And grant 

us what You did promise to us through Your messengers, and do not abase us on the Day 

of Resurrection. You never break the promise. [3: 192, 193, 194]

Hadith of the Day:

"O people! Give salaams, feed others, and pray at night while others sleep, and you shall 

enter Paradise in peace." [Tirmidhi & Ibn Majah]

Wise Quote of the Day:

In accordance with the real nature of things, it is the human that must conform to the Divine, 

and not the Divine to the human. [Seyyed Hossein Nasr]

Guidance of the Day:

The wealthy soul is one that is content. This contentment is not the kind that originates from 

stupidity or not knowing any better. It is contentment that is found by knowledge and by 

reflection on death and its meaning.

Second, the remembrance of death gives one energy to achieve good deeds: Wealth and sons 

are the ornaments of the life of this world, while enduring righteous deeds are better with your 

Lord in reward and better in hope (Quran, 18:46).

Third, remembrance of death engenders seeking repentance when one slips or errs, Penitence 

rectifies wrong action, and that is the gift of remembering death. When one lives with this 

realization, he or she becomes prompt in seeking God's forgiveness. Those who are heedless 

of death have no compunction in doing wrong, since death is not a factor in their lives. 

They carelessly view the Day of Judgment as some distant event hardly worth worrying about. 

[Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:

They must often change, who would be constant in happiness and wisdom. We cannot become 

what we need to be by remaining what we are.
