There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence....

Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The day passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence.

The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there."

Sayyadina Aayeshah Radiyallahu Anha says: "Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam once came home, a woman was present at that time. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam inquired. 'Who is this woman?' I replied: 'This is a certain woman who does not sleep at night'. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: 'One should observe only that amount of nawaafil which one can bear. I swear an oath that Allah TaAala does not fear the granting of rewards, till you begin to fear the observance of deeds'. Aayeshah Radiyallahu. Anha says: 'The most beloved deed of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam were those that were practised continuously. (TIRMIZI)

Commentary: This Sahaabiyyah was Sayyiditina Kholaa bint Tuwayt bin Habib Radiyallahu Anha. She had the fervour and intense desire to perform Ibaadah. Many incidents of this type are mentioned in the Ahaadith, Where the zeal of the Sahaabah Radiyallahu Anhu was so intense, it compelled them to perform Ibaadah more than normal. Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam advised them to observe moderation.

An engineer, a physicist and a mathematician are staying in a hotel.

The engineer wakes up and smells smoke. He goes out into the hallway and sees a fire, so he fills a trash can from his room with water and douses the fire. He goes back to bed.

Later, the physicist wakes up and smells smoke. He opens his door and sees a fire in the hallway. He walks down the hall to a fire hose and after calculating the flame velocity, distance, water pressure, trajectory, etc. extinguishes the fire with the minimum amount of water and energy needed.

Later, the mathematician wakes up and smells smoke. He goes to the hall, sees the fire and then the fire hose. He thinks for a moment and then exclaims, "Ah, a solution exists!" and then goes back to bed.
