A CAT caught a Rooster, and pondered how he might find a reasonable excuse for eating him. He accused him of being a nuisance to men by crowing in the nighttime and not permitting them to sleep. The Rooster defended himself by saying that he did this for the benefit of men, that they might rise in time for their labours.

The Cat replied, "Although you abound in specious apologies, I shall not remain supperless"; and he made a meal of him.

MORAL: It is pointless to argue with those who by their very nature mean to do you harm?

"Sayyadatina Aayeshah Radiyallahu Anha says: "I did not observe Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam fast for more days in any month (excluding Ramadaan) other than Sha'baan. He fasted for the major part of the month, and nearly fasted for the full month". (TIRMIZI)

Commentary: The reason for fasting the major portion of Sha'baan is mentioned by Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam himself that, 'In this month, there is also that day wherein the deeds of the year are presented before Allah. I love that my deeds should be presented whilst I am fasting'. Besides this many other reasons are narrated in the Ahaadith. It is possible that at a certain time it is for a particular reason and at another time it is for some other reason.

It should be kept in mind that the fasts of Sha'ban are for those persons only who are capable of keeping them without causing deficiency in the obligatory fasts of Ramadan. Therefore, if one fears that after fasting in Sha'ban, he will lose strength or freshness for the fasts of Ramadan and will not be able to fast in it with freshness; he should not fast in Sha'ban, because the fasts of Ramadan, being obligatory, are more important than the optional fasts of Sha'ban. That is why Prophet Muhammad, Sall-Allahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, himself has forbidden the Muslims from fasting one or two days immediately before the commencement of Ramadan.

Recently, when I went to a restaurant I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken Nuggets.
I asked for a half dozen nuggets.
'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter.
'You don't?' I replied.
'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply.
'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?'
'That's right.'
So I shook my head and ordered six Nuggets
(Unbelievable but sadly true...)
