Once upon a time there was a young man whose task was to climb over a coconut tree to bring the fruits (or juice). He had never climbed so high. So that day, his father also came with him. The son started climbing and the father looked at him.

When the son started climbing, the father said nothing.
When the son was half way up, the father said nothing.
When the son was on top of the tree, still the father said nothing.

The son got the fruit / juice, and started climbing down. He was thinking – “It’s my first time ever and yet father is not saying / suggesting anything !” and so he was a bit disappointed.

When he got down half way the tree , still his father didn’t say anything.
When he was just at about 15 feet, his father said- “Son, be careful.”

Hearing this the son became a little angry. Though he came down safely. He asked his father- “huh, Father, when I started climbing, you said nothing, When I was on top, you said nothing, when I was in the middle while coming down, you said nothing…When I was just about to reach the ground—you said- “Be careful.” Why ??

His father explained-
“Son, when you started climbing, you were careful,
When you were on the top, you were careful that you are on the top and if you make any mistake you will fall.
When you were in the middle, still you had some concentration.
But when you were just about to reach the ground, you were about to loose your concentration. So I reminded you to be careful.”

Moral: Most of the mistakes happen, when we are about to reach the goal, we become careless or loose our concentration. We should not.
Be consistent……, until you get the goal+ ?

Supplicating throughout the day and night, especially during iftar time. The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said:

"Three prayers are not rejected: the prayer of a father, the prayer of a fasting person, and the prayer of a traveller." [Narrated by al-Bayhaqi 3/345 and classified as authentic in Silsilat al-Ahadith as-Sahihah #1797]

"Indeed there is for the fasting person, when he breaks his fast, a supplication which is not rejected." [Narrated by Ibn Majah and al-Hakim]

What's A Tupperware Party?

One evening after dinner, my five-year-old son Brian noticed that his mother had gone out. In answer to his questions, I told him, "Mommy is at a Tupperware party."

This explanation satisfied him for only a moment. Puzzled, he asked, "What’s a Tupperware party, Dad?"

I’ve always given my son honest answers, so I figured a simple explanation would be the best approach. "Well, Brian," I said, "at a Tupperware party, a bunch of ladies sit around and sell plastic bowls to each other."

Brian nodded, indicating that he understood. Then he burst into laughter. "Come on, Dad," he said. "What is it really?"
