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



Muhammad ibn Sulaiman al-Qurashi says that he was once walking on the road to Yemen when he came across a young boy who was standing on the road. He was singing some couplets in the praise of Allah. Muhammad continues:

"I went up to him and greeted."
He replied, "I will not return your greeting until you fulfil the right I have upon you."
I replied, "What right are you talking about?"
He replied, "I follow the teachings of the friend of Allah, Ebrahim Alaihis Salaam. I do not have breakfast nor supper every day until I walk a mile or two in search of a guest."

I accepted his invitation for a meal. He was exceedingly pleased and I followed him. We continued walking until we came to a tent made of animal hair. As we walked up to it he called out, "O my sister!"
From inside the tent a young girl replied, "Yes. I am present."
He exclaimed, "Our guest has arrived."
She replied, "Can you please wait a while so that I can express gratitude to Allah for sending a guest to us."

She then proceeded to perform two Rakaahs of Salaah expressing her appreciation to Allah. The young boy then ushered me towards the tent. I entered and he made me sit down. He took a knife and proceeded to slaughter a goat. As I was sitting in the tent my gaze fell upon the young girl. She was exceedingly beautiful. I continued staring at her stealthily.

She noticed my glances and said, "Please stop! Do you not know that the master of Yathrib, the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, has mentioned that a lustful gaze is adultery of the eyes. I do not wish to rebuke you, but I would like to teach you some etiquette so that you do not cast a gaze towards me again."

When it was time to sleep, my young host and I slept outside while the young girl slept in the tent. But, the entire night I could hear somebody reciting Quran in a mellodious and sweet voice.

When morning dawned upon us I asked the young boy, "Whose voice was that?"
He answered, "That was my sister. She remains awake the entire night."
I remarked, "Young boy, you should have remained awake the entire night instead of her. Being a woman she is naturally weaker than you."
He smiled and said, "Do you not know that Allah has blessed her with doing so and has not granted me the same blessing."

God sent the prophets for this purpose, namely to sever infidelity from faith. God sent the prophets to humankind that they might gather the pure grain on their tray. Infidel and faithful, before the prophets came, seemed all as one. Before they came we were all alike [and] no-one knew whether he was right or wrong. Genuine coin and base coin were current alike.

Office jokes-Laugh

I joined a new office. The Branch Manager told a few boring jokes but to my surprise, all my colleagues laughed.

After coming out of the cabin, I pulled out my colleague and asked him as to why they were laughing to thr useless jokes. He replied, "If you don't laugh, he will think that we have not understood the joke and repeat the same joke again and again!"
