There was once a man who was planning to travel to a dangerous land. He went to the house of a man, well known for his honesty. He knocked on his door and told him: "I'm giving you $1440 to keep with you as I am travelling to a dangerous place. When I get back, I only want $17 back." The honest man stood their perplexed but agreed.

The next day, the traveller returned to the honest man's house and asked him for the $17. The honest man told him that he forgot and that he had spent it all. The traveller forgave him since he knew that this man was honest enough to give it back later. The next day, the same man travelled to the same dangerous place and gave the same honest man $1440 to keep and at the end of the day said, he will take $17 back. The traveller returned from his travels and asked the honest man for his $17. The honest man replied that he was so engrossed in having a good time with his friends, that he spent all the money again. Once again, the traveller forgave him, knowing he didn't do it on purpose.

This same incident happened everyday, whereby the honest man was given $1440 and was expected to return only $17 but failed to do so. Later on, his child becomes sick and the doctor who was going to give the treatment told him that if he wished for his child to be looked after, the fee was $1440. The honest man started to panic realising he could not afford $1440. It then struck him that the traveller used to give him that same amount.

He quickly ran to the traveller's house and asked him in a panic for $1440. The traveller told him that due to his feeble excuses, he stopped going to his house as he had lost faith in his honesty.

The irony is, is that this story has once been directly relevant to each and every single one of us. It is quite remarkable that Allah (swt) gives us 1440 minutes each day and only specifies 17 minutes of that back in prayer. But due to our ignorance and the whisperings of Shaytan, we are blinded towards the minute scale of what we are giving back.

This story points out three things:
1. The importance of Salaah and how little we have to give back.
2. The mercy of Allah that he forgives us even after such blunders.
3. The fact that we only realise how important something is (in this case gift of wealth) until it is gone.

A judge in a village court had gone on vacation. Nasrudin was asked to be temporary judge for a day. Nasrudin sat on the Judge's chair with a serious face, gazing around the public and ordered the first case be brought-up for hearing.

"You are right," said Nasrudin after hearing one side.

"You are right," he said after hearing the other side.

"But both cannot be right," said a member of public sitting in the audience.

"You are right, too" said Nasrudin.

Everyone is right in their own way. If everyone know this, then the world would be much better place to live.
