At a Party, a Lizard suddenly fell and sat on a lady. Out of fear the lady started screaming.

With a panic stricken face and trembling voice she started jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the lizard. Her reaction was contagious, as everyone in her group also got frightened. The lady finally managed to push the lizard away, but it landed on another lady in the group.

Now, it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama.

The waiter rushed forward to their rescue. In the relay of throwing, the lizard next fell upon the waiter. The waiter did not move, composed himself and observed the behaviour of the lizard on his shirt. When he was confident enough, he grabbed it with his fingers and threw it out of the hall.

Eating my dinner and watching the amusement, the antenna of my mind picked up a few thoughts and started wondering, was the lizard responsible for their histrionic behaviour?

If so, then why was the waiter not disturbed? He handled it near to perfection, without any chaos.

It is not the lizard, but the inability of the ladies to handle the disturbance caused by the lizard that disturbed the ladies.
I realized that, it is not the shouting of my father or my boss or my wife that disturbs me, but it’s my inability to handle the disturbances caused by their shouting that disturbs me.

It is not the traffic jams on the road that disturbs me, but my inability to handle the disturbance caused by the traffic jam that disturbs me.
More than the problem, it’s my reaction to the problem that creates chaos in my life.

Lessons learnt from the story:
We should not react in life.
We should always respond.
The women reacted, whereas the waiter responded.
Reactions are always instinctive whereas responses are always well thought of.

Aayeshah Radiyallahu Anha reports: "Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam fasted three days of every month. In some months he fasted on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, and in some months he fasted on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays". [TIRMIZI]

Commentary: So that in this manner all the days of the week are covered. The days of Friday were intentionally omitted as stated in some Ahaadith that this day had been proclaimed as an 'Eid'. Other important matters were fulfilled on this day. Or Friday has not been mentioned in this narration and may have been mentioned in other narrations.

* ‘I killed my mom’ - Had they acted sooner when they heard her cries. Had she come to them sooner with her tragic secret. Had they not ignored the signs, perhaps things would have turned out differently.

* ANC thanks Tlakula for service - The EFF on Tuesday welcomed IEC chairwoman Pansy Tlakula's resignation and said her departure was in the interests of democracy.

* WHO: Ebola outbreak in DRC remains contained - When the deadly Ebola virus struck anew last month in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the outbreak was centred in a district sufficiently remote to be both a blessing and a bane for medical staff.

*End of Gaza war ‘not peace’ - A week after the guns fell silent in the Gaza war, Israel and the Palestinians seem to have little appetite or incentive for a return to US-sponsored peace and statehood talks that collapsed five months ago.

*Innocent brothers freed after 30-years for rape - Two mentally impaired half-brothers were freed on Tuesday after serving three decades in a United States prison for the rape and murder of a child that they did not commit.

The County Highway Commissioner was driving to the hospital for treatment of his painful knee injury; he decided to take advantage of the hospital's Valet Parking. As he exited his car, a young man with the Valet Parking Company, comes up and asks if this was a government vehicle.

"Yes," the Commissioner replied, surprised by the question.
"In fact it's an unmarked police car."

"Wow!" the young man said, sliding behind the wheel. "This will be the first time I've been in the front seat."
