Once upon a time there was a painter who had just completed his course. He took 3 days and painted beautiful scenery. He wanted people’s opinion about his caliber and painting skills.

He put his creation at a busy street-crossing. And just down below a board which read – “I have painted this piece. Since I’m new to this profession I might have committed some mistakes in my strokes etc. Please put a cross wherever you see a mistake.”

While he came back in the evening to collect his painting he was completely shattered to see that whole canvass was filled with Xs (crosses) and some people had even written their comments on the painting.

Disheartened and broken completely he ran to his master’s place and burst into tears.

This young artist was breathing heavily and master heard him saying: “I’m useless and if this is what I have learnt to paint I’m not worth becoming a painter. People have rejected me completely. I feel like dying.”

Master smiled and suggested “My Son, I will prove that you are a great artist and have learnt flawless painting. Do as I say without questioning it. It will work.”

Young artist reluctantly agreed and two days later early morning he presented a replica of his earlier painting to his master. Master took that gracefully and smiled.

“Come with me.” master said.

They reached the same street-square early morning and displayed the same painting exactly at the same place. Now master took out another board which read – “Gentlemen, I have painted this piece. Since I’m new to this profession I might have committed some mistakes in my strokes etc. I have put a box with colors and brushes just below. Please do a favour. If you see a mistake, kindly pick up the brush and correct it.”

Master and disciple walked back home.

They both visited the place same evening. The young painter was surprised to see that actually there was not a single correction done so far. Next day again they visited and found painting remained untouched. The painting was kept there for a month but no correction came in!

Moral of the story:
It is easier to criticize, but difficult to Improve!
So don’t get carried away or judge yourself by someone else’s criticism and feel depressed.
Judge yourself, you are the best judge!
Don't judge others...Allah is the best judge...

Sayyadatina Aayeshah Radiyallahu Anha narrates: "Every night before Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam slept on his bed, he put together his hands (as in the du'aa) and blew on it and recited (the surahs of) AI-Ikhlaas (Qul huwauahu ahad), AI-Falaq (Qul a'udhu birabbil falaq), and An-Naas (Qui a'udhu birabbin naas) and wiped those parts of the body that he could (wherever the hand could reach). He began with the head, then the face and then the front part of his body. This was done thrice". [TIRMIZI]

Commentary: The Ahaadith state that Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam recited different Du'aas before he went to bed. He also recited different Surahs and Aayaat of the Qur-aan. It is reported from Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam that if one recites a portion of the Qur-aan before sleeping, an angel is appointed to protect one till one awakens. From the above Hadith it is found that Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam himself recited the three Surahs mentioned. Besides these, it has been narrated that he recited the Musabbihaat. i.e. those Surahs that begin with Sabbaha, Yusabbibu, Subhaana etc. He also regularly recited the Surahs of (Alif Laam) Sajdah and Surah Mulk (Tabaarak). The Ahaadith state that he also recited the Aayatul Kursi and the last two aayahs of Suratul Baqarah. A Sahabi reports that, Sayidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam Advised him to recite Suratul Kaafirun (Qul yaa ayyuhal kaafirun) before retiring to bed. Besides these, other du'aas have been narrated that were read by Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam before sleeping. -Fathul Baari.

We live less than a quarter-mile from the high school, but my son proudly drove there in a car he bought with his own money. A typical first car, it had lots of little problems and was sometimes slow to start.

One morning I was surprised to see it still in front of the house, so after school I asked him about it. "I had to get to school early," he said, "so I just ran."
