A boy said to his father: “I saw a girl and I want to marry her. She is so beautiful and she has gorgeous eyes. The father answered: Yes, of course son, let’s ask for her hand in marriage.”

When the father saw the girl, he admired her beauty and he told his son: “You do not deserve this girl, she needs someone who has experience in life and she can depend on, someone like …me.”

The boy was surprised by the attitude of his father and told him: “She will marry me, not you”. They started arguing and finally decided to both go to the police station to solve their problem.

When they told their story to the police officer, he told them: ”bring the girl so we can ask her about her opinion about this.” When the officer saw the beauty of the girl he said to the boy and his father: ”Both of you do not deserve her, she needs someone who has prestige like me.”

The three men started to argue and decided to go to the minister to solve their problem. When the minister saw the girl, he said: “She deserves to be married with a minister like me”. The prince heard about their problem and called them all to help them solve it but and when he saw the girl he said : “This girl will marry me”.

All the five men started arguing. Finally, the girl said: “I have the solution! I will start to run and whoever catches me first, he will be my husband”. When she started to run, the boy, his father, the police officer, the minister and the prince started to run to catch her. Suddenly the five men fell into a deep hole.

The girl looked to them from the top and said: “Do you know who I am?”
I am the Dunya - THE LIFE!!

Moral: We run after the fame, wealth & beauty of this world. By doing so we often forget our real purpose of life till we finally end up in our graves and meet our creator. So, Realize the reality of life and amend your ways before its too late!!!

The Sunnah method of greeting is that one should say verbally 'Assalamu Alaykum'. To make Salaam with the wave of the hand, the nod of the head or the indication of the finger or to answer to the Salaam in this manner is against the Sunnah. If Salaam is being made from far then one should make Salaam verbally as well as with the hand. (Tirmidhi)

Two men sank into adjacent train seats after a long day in the city. One asked the other, "Your son go back to college yet?"

"Two days ago."

"Hmm. Mine's a senior this year, so it's almost over. In May, he'll be an engineer. What's your boy going to be when he gets out of college?"

"At the rate he's going, I'd say he'll be about thirty."

"No, I mean what's he taking in college?"

"He's taking every penny I make."

"Doesn't he burn the midnight oil enough?"

"He doesn't get in early enough to burn the midnight oil."

"Well, has sending him to college done anything at all?"

"Sure has! It's totally cured his mother of bragging about him!"
