There was a man who grew high-quality maize in his large fields. Every year he took his excellent maize yield to the National food carnival where he won the Best yield award in Agriculture. One day a writer from a well-known magazine came to interview him about the techniques he employed to grow such award-winning maize. The Writer was surprised to hear the way he grew his maize. The man told the writer that he shared part of his maize seeds with the owners of his neighboring fields. The writer was astonished and asked him, “What on Earth makes you give your best-quality maize to your neighbors while they participate in the carnival alongside you.” “I simply don’t understand this”, said the writer.

“Well”, said the man, “Don’t you know that this crop is insect and wind pollinated which means the insects and the wind transports the pollen from one crop to the other across the fields. If my neighbors grow low-quality and unhealthy crops then how can I expect my crops to grow healthy and of high-quality? For this reason I help my neighbors to grow good quality maize so that I can have good quality maize too” The explanation left the writer speechless and he was very much impressed by the wisdom of the man. He learned a great lesson that day.

The same is true with our lives. Desire for others what you desire for yourself to succeed in this life and life hereafter. Only this attitude can help people live peacefully.

For example:
1. If you want to get good grades, help your friends get good grades too because when you help them with their studies you are actually revising your knowledge which will only make you an expert in that subject.
2. Employees who want to succeed at work should help their colleagues in their work too, by doing this not only is the employee appreciated for his own work, but is also recognized as a good and respectful human being in his company.
3. We should help our neighbors solve their problems if we expect our neighbors to show up when we face any problems.
4. Lastly, if Allah has given you the knowledge about the Afterlife, then you should share it with others who do not know about it so that Allah rewards you for caring for others’ afterlife and not being selfish.

(Waleemah is a feast normally held on the day after the wedding.)

Sayyadina Anas ibn Malik radiyallahu anhu reports, “Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam celebrated the Waleemah of Safiyyah radiyallahu anha with dates and Saweeq (Sattu).” (TIRMIZI)

Commentary: Saweeq (Sattu) is a drink made of parched barley. Sayyidatina Safiyyah bint Huyay ibn Akhtab radiyallahu anha was from a Jewish family and from among the offsprings of Haroon alaihis salaam. In the year AH 7, after the Battle of Khaibar, Sayyidina Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam freed, and married her. Sayyidina Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam once said to her, “Your grandfather (Haroon alaihis salaam) was a prophet. Your (great) uncle (Musa alaihis salaam) was a prophet, and your husband is a prophet.”

The Waleemah was made whilst on a journey. What was served in the Waleemah? Different sayings are narrated in the Ahaadith. In some, it is narrated that hays, which is a type of sweet dish, was served. In some, cheese is mentioned. It is apparent that they were on a journey and whatever was available, at breakfast time, in the possession of Sayyidina Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam and his close associates, was included in the Waleemah.
