May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)


with its stations...
with changes of routes...
and with accidents...

We board this train when we are born and our parents are the ones who get our ticket. We believe they will always travel on this train with us. However, at some station our parents will get off the train, leaving us alone on this journey.

As time goes by, other passengers will board the train, many of whom will be significant - our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life. Many will get off during the journey and leave a permanent vacuum in our lives.

Many will go so unnoticed that we will not even know when they vacated their seats and got off the train!

This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, good-byes, and farewells. A good journey is helping, loving, having a good relationship with all the co passengers... and making sure that we give our best in making their journey comfortable.

The mystery of this fabulous journey is:

We do not know at which station we as individuals will be getting off. So, we must live in the best way - adjust, forget, forgive and offer the best of what we have. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to leave our seat... we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

Thank you for being one of the important passengers on my train... I do not know when my station will come... I do not want to miss saying: "Thank you"

If someone has an ear-ache and, on account of that, water comes out of it continuously - then this water will be regarded as impure even if there is no sore or pimple. The mere flowing of that water will break Wudu (ablution) if it flows to a place which is Fard (compulsory) to wash during Ghusl (bath). Similarly, if water flows from the nose and this is accompanied by pain, then too Wudu will break. Similarly, if there is pain in the eyes and they are sore, and in addition to this they water or tears come out, then too Wudu will break (as in the case of pink eyes). But if there is no pain in the eyes nor are they sore, then Wudu will not break by the mere flowing of tears.

Dewey goes to a pet shop, and there he sees a parrot with a red string tied to its left leg and a green string tied to its right leg. He asks the owner the significance of the strings.

"Well, this is a highly trained parrot. If you pull the red string, he speaks French; if you pull the green string, he speaks German," replies the shopkeeper.

"And what happens if I pull both strings at the same time?" Asks Dewey.

"I fall off my perch you idiot!" squawks the parrot.
