HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Umaiyyah bin Makhshi (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) was sitting while a man was eating food. That man did not mention the Name of Allah (before commencing to eat) till only a morsel of food was left. When he raised it to his mouth, he said: "Bismillah awwalahu wa akhirahu (With the Name of Allah, in the beginning and in the end).'' The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) smiled at this and said, "Satan had been eating with him but when he mentioned the Name of Allah, Satan vomited all that was in his stomach.'' [Abu Dawud and An-Nasa'i]

Commentary: This Hadith also informs us that Satan shares food and drink with those people who do not mention the Name of Allah.

The six-year-old was terribly spoiled. His father knew it, but his grandma doted on him. He hardly left her side. And when he wanted anything, he either cried or threw a temper tantrum.

Then came his first day of school, his first day away from his grandmother's loving arms. When he came home from school his grandma met him at the door. "Was school all right?" she asked, "Did you get along all right? did you cry?"

"Cry?" he asked. "No, I didn't cry, but I made the teacher cry!"
