Once when a Lion was asleep a little Mouse began running up and down upon him; this soon wakened the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to swallow him. ‘Pardon, O King,’ cried the little Mouse: ‘forgive me this time, I shall never forget it: who knows but what I may be able to do you a turn some of these days?’ The Lion was so tickled at the idea of the Mouse being able to help him that he lifted up his paw and let him go. Sometime after the Lion was caught in a trap, and the hunters who desired to carry him alive to the King, tied him to a tree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him on. Just then the little Mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the sad plight, in which the Lion was, went up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the King of the Beasts. ‘Was I not right?’ said the little Mouse.

Umme Haani radiyallahu anha (a relative of Sayyidina Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam) says, “Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam came to me (to my house at the time when Makkah was conquered) and asked if there was something to eat. I replied, ‘Nothing besides dry bread and vinegar.’ Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam said, ‘Bring it. That house is not without a curry which has vinegar in it.” (TIRMIZI)

Commentary: Allahu Akbar, what a simple life Sayyidina Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam led. How wonderful will it be if Allah in his infite mercy and with the intercession of His beloved Rasool also grants us such simplicity. The fact is that food and drink in the eyes of Sayyidina Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam was given only such importance, that it was only used when it was required. When necessary, he ate what was available. Eating was looked upon as being means to sustain life, and not as we see it, that the filling of the stomach is more important, and religious deeds are regarded as something of a secondary importance. Their aim in life was to propagate Islam and make a fertile ground for it, and as an obligation and human need to fulfil religious needs.

It is also deduced from this Hadith that where one has an informal relationship with someone, there is no harm in asking for something.

If you love something, set it free.
If it comes back, it will always be yours.
If it doesn't come back, it was never yours to begin with.
But, if it just sits in your living room, messes up your stuff, eats your food, uses your telephone, takes your money, and doesn't appear to realize you set it free...
You either married it or gave birth to it.
