Why Didn’t You Take The Cookies?

Once a little girl went to a shop with his mother. The shopkeeper looked at the small cute child and showed her a jar full of cookies and said “Dear Child. You can take some cookies”
But the child didn’t take. The shop keeper was surprised.

Such a small child but why is she not taking the cookies from the jar? Again he said take the cookies. Now the mother also heard this and said “Take the cookies dear” yet she didn’t take it.

The shopkeeper, seeing the child not taking the cookies, himself took the cookies and gave them to the child. The child was ecstatic to have been given so many delicious cookies! While returning home the Mother asked the child “why didn’t you take the cookies, when the shop keeper told you to take?”

Can you guess the response?
The child replied: “Mom! My hands are very small and if I take the cookies I can only take a few… but now you see when uncle gave with his big hands…. how many more cookies I got!”

Moral: When we take we may get little but when Allah gives… he provides us beyond our expectations… more than what we can hold.

SUNNAH, (PRACTISES OF MUHAMMAD Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam)
Anas Radiyallahu 'Anhu reports: "Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam visited the sick, attended funerals, rode on donkeys, accepted the invitations of slaves. On the day of the battle of Banu Qurayzah, he rode on a donkey, the reigns of which were made of date palm leaves. On it was also a saddle made of date palm leaves". [TIRMIZI]

Commentary: In Arabia, there is special type of donkey, which is bigger than other mules. They run faster than the ordinary ponies. Two or three people can easily ride them. They are better than ordinary horses. It is possible that these' donkeys existed in the time of Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam. It is regarded as an inferior class of conveyance than that of horses. The object here is to show that Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam despite being of such a high status, and who possessed the leadership of both worlds did not feel belittled by riding a donkey. In the same manner, he visited the sick, be that person a respectable or an ordinary person. He even visited the sick non-Muslims. A Jewish lad used to attend the assemblies of Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam. At times he assisted in some work too. When he became ill, Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam went to visit him. It was his last moments. Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam fulfilled his duties of kindness towards him, and presented to him the Message Islaam. The lad looked at his father, the father signalled his agreement. He accepted Islaam. Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam thanked Allah, as only Allah is worthy of hamd, who had saved the lad through him. Not only this, Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam also went to visit the leader of the hyprocrites, 'Abdullah bin Ubay, when he became ill, whereas, he had troubled and harassed Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam many a time. In this manner we find in the ahaadith that he attended the funerals of many ordinary people.

Sipho and Peter were unemployed and decided that it seemed a good idea to get a job at a mine.

When Sipho went in for an interview with the HR Manager, the manager asked him: "So Mr Sipho, you say you've worked in a mine before, how deep did you work?"

"10 000 feet" said Sipho and he was promptly thrown out of the HR's office because it was evident that Sipho had no idea how to mine.

Outside, Sipho saw Peter who was next up for an interview. "When she asks how deep you've dug, tell her a big number and the job will be yours"

So when the manager asked him, Peter replied that he had gone down 20 000 feet.

"Wow" said the manager "when you were so deep, what did you use to illuminate your way?"

"Agh, I didn't need anything like that" said Peter "because I worked the day shift!"
