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

Sayyadina Sahl bin Sa`d (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A drink was brought to the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) and he drank some of it. On his right was a boy and on his left were elderly people. He said to the boy, "Would you permit me to give the rest of this drink to these on my left?'' The boy said, "O Messenger of Allah, I would certainly not give preference to anyone in anything that might come to me from you.'' So he handed over the rest of the drink to him. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary: The Shari`ah rule says that in order to distribute something in an assembly of people, a beginning should be made from the right side. In the said incident, Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) then a young boy, was sitting on the right side, while the aged people were sitting on the left side. Regard for the age difference demanded that the beginning should have been made from the side of the latter. But the correct way was that the beginning should be made from Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) because he was sitting on the right side. For this reason, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) did not ignore his right of priority due to his young age, rather by seeking his permission he made it clear that priority should be given to a rightful person, irrespective of the fact that he happened to be a child. On the other hand, it was also essential for Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) that in view of respect for elders, he should surrender his right. But he faced a more delicate problem. The cup containing the left-over drink of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) had touched his blessed mouth and this fact prompted Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) to take lead in benefiting from the benediction. He, therefore, preferred the Prophetic benediction to showing respect to the aged. The Hadith throws light on the requisite respect for the aged as well as highlights the significance of receiving blessing from the pious persons. Besides, it proves the right of priority of the rightful person.

A student wanted admission for a study course. He was smart enough to get through the written test, and was to appear for the personal interview. As the interview progressed, the interviewer found the boy to be bright since he could answer all the questions correctly. The interviewer got impatient and decided to corner the boy.

"Tell me your choice;" he said to the boy. "What's your choice: I shall either ask you ten easy questions or ONE real difficult one. Think well before you make up your mind."

The boy thought for a while and said, "My choice is the ONE real difficult question."

"Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice!" said the man on the opposite side. Tell me: What comes first, Day or Night?"

The boy was jolted at first, but he waited for a while and said: "It's the DAY, sir."

"How???" the interviewer smiled... ("At last, I got you!" he said to himself.)

"Sorry sir, you promised me that you will not ask me a SECOND difficult question!"

Admission for the course was thus secured.
