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

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, "Any matter of importance which is not begun with Al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah) remains defective.'' [Abu Dawud]

Commentary: There is another Hadith to the effect that every important work which is not started with the invocation "Bismillah'' is devoid of Allah's Grace. In any case, it is desirable to begin every good work with the Glorious Name of Allah and His Praise.

Baba's Shaving Cream

A marketing guy was interviewing people on the street had button-holed a guy and was asking him a series of questions which went like this...

Which shaving cream do you use?

The gent answered, Baba's, and the guy proceeded to answer each of the interviewer's following questions with the same answer, Baba's...

Which aftershave do you use?
Which deodorant do you use?
Which toothpaste do you use?
Which shampoo do you use?
Which soap do you use?

Finally, a bit frustrated, the interviewer asked, "Ok, tell me, What is this 'Baba'? Is it an international or foreign company?"

The guy replies. . . .

"No, he's my room-mate!"
