Radio Islam Short Story Writing Competition



The Lion went once a-hunting along with the Fox, the Jackal, and the Wolf. They hunted and they hunted till at last they surprised a Stag, and soon took its life. Then came the question how the spoil should be divided.

‘Quarter me this Stag,’ roared the Lion; so the other animals skinned it and cut it into four parts. Then the Lion took his stand in front of the carcass and pronounced judgment: The first quarter is for me in my capacity as King of Beasts; the second is mine as arbiter; another share comes to me for my part in the chase; and as for the fourth quarter, well, as for that, I should like to see which of you will dare to lay a paw upon it.’

‘Humph,’ grumbled the Fox as he walked away with his tail between his legs; but he spoke in a low growl, You may share the labours of the great, but you will not share the spoil.’

Sayyadina Jaabir Radiyallahu Anhu says. "Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam never said 'No' to a request of a person". (TIRMIZI)

Commentary: If he was in possession of the required article at that moment, he gave it, otherwise he would promise to give it at another time, or he would make Du'aa for the person, that Allah fulfil the person's need by some other means.

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence. They go with a State official to examine the fence.

The first contractor takes out a tape measure and does some Measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The second contractor also does some measuring and figuring, and then says I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The third contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the State official and whispers, "$2,700."

The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"

The contractor whispers back, "$1,000 for me, $1,000 for you, and we hire the guy from the second contractor to fix the fence."
