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

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: On the Night of Al-Isra (the Night of Ascension) the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) was presented with two drinking vessels: one full of wine and the other one full of milk. He looked at them. Then he took the vessel which was full of milk. Thereupon Jibril (Gabriel) said: "Al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah) Who has guided you to that, which is in accord with Fitrah (i.e., Islamic Monotheism; pure nature of Islam). Had you selected wine, your people would have gone astray.'' [Muslim]

Commentary: This Hadith highlights the following points:

  1. Islam is a religion which matches with the pure nature. Every sensible person accepts it instinctively.
  2. One who is endowed with the capacity and aptitude to do good should praise Allah.
  3. Wine is the root of all evils and for this reason has been regarded the "Mother of Vices''.

The bride was anything but a tidy housekeeper. It didn't bother her much until one evening when her husband called from the hall, somewhat dismayed: "Honey, what happened to the dust on this table? I had a phone number written on it."
