Hope and Greed

Caliph Haroon Rashid desired that any one who had seen the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi W) in his lifetime be brought before him. After some time a very old woman was brought before the Caliph. The Caliph asked the old woman, "Did you see the Prophet yourself?" She said, "Yes! Oh Sir." The Caliph then asked her if she remembered any narration from him. She said yes and said, "When old age comes two things become young, one is hope and the other is greed." The Caliph thanked her and gave her one hundred dinars. The woman thanked the Caliph and she was taken back.

Half the way some thought passed through her mind and she desired to be brought before the Caliph once more. When she was shown in, the Caliph asked, "Well, why have you come back?" She said. "I just came to inquire whether the monies you gave me were once for all or is it to continue every year?"

The Caliph thought. "How true is the Prophet's word?" she has hope of life even now and she has greed for money too. The Caliph said, "Don't worry; you will be paid every year." She was taken back but on the way she breathed her last.

When I stopped the bus to pick up little five year old Chris for preschool, I noticed an older woman hugging him as he left the house.

"Is that your grandmother?" I asked Chris when he boarded.

"Yes," Chris said. "She's come to visit us."

"How nice," I said. "Where does she live?"

"At the airport," Chris replied.

"Whenever we want her we just go out there and get her."
