Ibn Khaldun

The founder of the social sciences and the greatest Muslim historian, ‘Abdu-r-Rahman Wali'ud-din Muhammad ibn Khaldun, was born in Tunisia on 27 May 1332. His forefathers had migrated from Hadramawt to Seville (in Spain ) in the ninth century AD and were employed by their rulers as statesmen and administrators over almost four centuries. In the thirteenth century his family was one of the ruling families of Seville. Before the end or the century Seville had been occupied by Christians, and his family had to immigrate to Tunis like most of the other noble families.

His father was a prominent scholar of Islam and so he received his primary education from his father and from other qualified and learned scholars of Islam. From his boyhood his sharp intelligence and philosophical ideas attracted attention. When he was twenty, he was appointed by the Sultan of Fes as his private secretary. Through his service, position and status at the court of the Sultan he became very rich and famous in a very short time, but he fell out of favour and ended up in prison. read more

A teacher once asked one of his lazy students:
“If you bring me a handful of the dust of Paradise, you’ll be a successful student.

The next day, the little boy came with a handful of dust and gave it to his teacher.
The teacher became angry and said: "Are you kidding me! Where did you get this from?”

The student answered with tears in his eyes “This dust was under the feet of my mother, didn’t you teach us that Paradise lies under the feet of mothers.”

I am a book in elegant prints
To know my name, here are some hints

Rich in cover and nicely bound
In hearts of Muslims I am rarely found

High on a shelf, I am kept
Forgotten there, I am left

With respect I do get lots of kiss
my main point is what they always miss

In a melodious voice they recite me
Neglecting the message inside me

At times I am used for phoney swear
My true use is very very rare

A miracle I am that can change the world
All one has to do is understand my word

I have wisdom I have treasure
so much so there is no measure

I'm your savior, I'm your guide
But who's there to follow the bide

Right from wrong is my fame
Holy Quran is my name

Walking into the factory, the MD noticed a guy leaning against the wall, doing nothing.

He calmly said to the young man, "How much do you earn?"

"I earn R2000.00 a month, Sir. WHY?" Without answering, MD took out his wallet, and gave him R6000.00 cash saying, "Around here I pay people for working not standing and doing nothing!!! Here is 3 months salary, now get out and Don't come back" and the young man disappeared.

Noticing onlookers, the MD said "that applies to everybody in this company" He approached one of the onlookers and asked him "who's the guy I just fired?"
