PERSONALITY

Adi Ibn Hatim RA

In the ninth year of the Hijra, an Arab king made the first positive moves to Islam after years of feeling hatred for it. He drew closer to faith (Iman) after opposing and combating it. And he finally pledged allegiance to the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, after his adamant refusal to do so.

He was Adiyy, son of the famous Hatim at-Taai who was known far and wide for his chivalry and fabulous generosity. Adiyy inherited the domain of his father and was confirmed in the position by the Tayy people. Part of his strength lay in the fact that a quarter of any amount they obtained as booty from raiding expeditions had to be given to him.

When the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam announced openly his call to guidance and truth and Arabs from one region after another accepted his teachings, Adiyy saw in his mission a threat to his position and leadership. Although he did not know the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam personally, and had never seen him, he developed strong feelings of enmity towards him. He remained antagonistic to Islam for close upon twenty years until at last Allah opened his heart to the religion of truth and guidance.

The way in which Adiyy became a Muslim is a remarkable story and he is perhaps the best person to relate it. He said: "There was no man among the Arabs who detested Allah's Messenger Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, more than I, when I heard about him. I was then a man of status and nobility. I was a Christian. From my people I took a fourth of their booty as was the practice of other Arab kings. read more

A THOUGHT

If a drop of water falls in the lake there is no identity. But if it falls on a leaf of lotus it shines like a pearl. So choose the best place where you would shine.

THE SMILE

"la computadora"

A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

"House" for instance, is feminine:
"la casa." "Pencil," however, is masculine: "el lapiz."

A student asked, "What gender is 'computer'?"
Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether "computer" should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation. The men's group decided that "computer" should definitely be of the feminine gender ("la computadora"), because:

  • No one but their creator understands their internal logic;
  • The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;
  • Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and
  • As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

(THIS GETS BETTER!)

The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ("el computador"), because:

  • In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;
  • They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;
  • They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and
  • As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won!!!
