Sultan Murad IV, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1623-1640, would often anonymously go into the midst of the people and see their state. One evening, he felt an uneasiness in himself and the urge to go out. He called for his head of security and out they went.

They came to a busy vicinity, and found a man lying on the ground. The Sultan prodded him but he was dead and the people were going about their own business. Nobody seemed to care about the dead man lying on the ground. The Sultan called upon the people. They didn't recognise him and asked him what he wanted. He said, "Why is this man lying dead on the ground and why no one seems to care? Where is his family?" They replied, "He is so and so, the drunkard and fornicator!" The Sultan said, "Is he not from the Ummah of Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam? Now help me carry him to his house." read more

MORAL: We often judge people by what we see and what we hear from others. Only if we were to see what was concealed in their hearts, a secret between them and their Lord.

Yusuf ibn Abdullah ibn Salaam says, “I once observed Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam take a piece of bread and put a date on it and say, ‘This (date) is the curry for this (bread).’ He then ate it.” (TIRMIZI)

Commentary: Because dates were not regarded as a curry, Sayyidina Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam suggested that dates could be used in place of curry. This Hadeeth shows the simplicity of Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam.

One of the best marksmen in the FBI was passing through a small town. Everywhere he saw evidences of the most amazing shooting. On trees, on walls, and on fences there were numerous bull's-eyes with the bullet hole in dead center. The FBI man asked one of the townsmen if he could meet the person responsible for this wonderful marksmanship. The man turned out to be the village idiot.

"This is the best marksmanship I have ever seen," said the FBI man. "How in the world do you do it?"

"Nothing to it," said the idiot. "I shoot first and draw the circles afterward."
