Zaid Bin Thaabit RA

We are in the second year of the Hijrah. Madinah the city of Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam is buzzing with activity as the Muslims prepare for the long march southwards to Badr. Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam made a final inspection of the first army to be mobilized under his leadership to wage Jihad against those who had tormented the Muslims for many years and who were still bent on putting an end to his mission.

A youth, not yet thirteen, walked up to the ranks. He was confident and alert. He held a sword which was as long or possibly slightly longer than his own height. He went up to Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam and said: "I dedicate myself to you, O Messenger of Allah Ta’aala. Permit me to be with you and to fight the enemies of Allah Ta’aala under your banner."

Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam looked at him with admiration and patted his shoulder with loving tenderness. He commended him for his courage but refused to enlist him because he was still too young. The youth, Zayd ibn Thabit Radiyallahu Anhu, turned and walked away, dejected and sad. As he walked, in slow and measured paces, he stuck his sword in the ground as a sign of his disappointment. He was denied the honour of accompanying Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam on his first campaign. Behind him was his mother, An-Nawar bint Malik Radiyallahu Anha. She felt equally dejected and sad. She had dearly wished to see her young son go with the army of mujahidin and to be with Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam at this most critical time. read more

Before condemning,
look beyond the surface,
look deep,
every scar has a story.
a sad troubled story.
A haunted past
coupled with a troubled present
shaking its roots
from deep within the ground
but still all that one seeks is
a hopeful future
before condemning,
look beyond the surface,
and allow hope in.

Before judging a book
by its creative cover,
read the pages within,
every word forms a story,
a sad troubled story,
or maybe a happy one.
before condemning,
look beyond the surface,
feel and try to understand.

Every smile has a tear
Every laughter has traces
of dread and pain
every voice quivers
with a sad tale to tell.
Before condemning
look beyond the surface.
for every smile has a ray of hope,
every laughter has a faint joy.
every voice like strings of a guitar
sings a song of hope and joy.

Before condemning
look beyond the surface.
Don't blame Religion
don't hurt a whole race,
a culture with traditions
for a few screwed up views.
Most wish to extend their hand
to bring peace and harmony
Before acting holier than thou
before condemning
look beyond the surface
and find inner peace.

Come morning,
some feel a spring in their step,
While others its a mission to wake
Only they know their struggles,
Not every painting is an instant masterpiece,
before the brushes of the first strokes are taken,
a vision is formed in the head of the artist.
Not every book is an instant bestseller,
before the words are penned,
an idea is born in the head of the writer,
This world is just a playground,
You can fall hard.
Before condemning,
look deep and
look beyond the surface.

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool... Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable. When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love. I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.

The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.'

Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?'
