May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)





A King had a male servant who, in all circumstances always said to him, My King, do not be discouraged because everything Allah does is perfect, no mistakes.

One day, they went hunting and a wild animal attacked the king, the servant managed to kill the animal but couldn’t prevent his majesty from losing a finger. Furious and without showing gratitude, the King said; if Allah was good, I would not have been attacked and lost one finger.

The servant replied ‘despite all these things, I can only tell you that Allah is good and everything He does is perfect, He is never wrong’. Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his servant.

While being taken to prison, he told the king again, Allah is Good & Perfect.

On another day, the king left alone for another hunt and was captured by savages who use human beings for sacrifice.

On the altar, the savages found out that the king didn’t have one finger in place, he was released because he was considered not “complete” to be offered to their Gods. On his return to the palace, he ordered the release of his servant and said; “My friend, Allah was really good to me. I was almost killed but for lack of a single finger. I was let go. But I have a question; If Allah is so good, why did He allow me to put you in prison?” His servant replied; “My king, if I had not been put in prison, I would have gone with you, and would have been sacrificed, because I have no missing finger.”

Everything Allah does is perfect, He is never wrong.

Often we complain about life, and the negative thinking in us kills the positivity in us… so think positive and trust Allah at every moment…

Mu`adh bin Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, "He who has taken food and says at the end: `Al-hamdu lillahi-lladhi at`amani hadha, wa razaqanihi min ghairi haulin minni wa la quwwatin (All praise is due to Allah Who has given me food to eat and provided it without any endeavour on my part or any power),' all his past sins will be forgiven.'' At-Tirmidh i]

Commentary: This Hadith tells us that if we praise Allah after taking a meal, all our minor sins committed in the past will be forgiven by Him.

What's the difference between Moms and dads?

  • Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.
  • Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
  • Dads are taller and stronger, but Moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.
  • Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.
