HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)
Abu Mas`ud Al-Badri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: We were sitting in the company of Sa`d bin `Ubadah (May Allah be pleased with him), when the Messenger of Allah (SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM) came to us. Bashir bin Sa`d said: "O Messenger of Allah! Allah has commanded us to supplicate for you, but how should we do that?'' The Messenger of Allah (SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM) kept silent. We were much perturbed over his silence and we wished he did not asked him this question. The Messenger of Allah (SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM) said, "Say: `O Allah, exalt the mention of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as you exalted the family of Ibrahim. And bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You blessed the family of Ibrahim. You are the Praised, the Glorified,' and the method of greeting (i.e., Salam) is as you know.'' [Muslim]

Commentary: In this Hadith, the Prophet (SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM) has showed us that the manner of offering Salam was the same as the one mentioned in the previous Hadith. "Al'' means the wives of the Prophet (SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM) and those of his relatives who were from Banu Hashim and Banu `Abdul-Muttalib and had embraced Islam. Some scholars are of the opinion that it is general and applies to all his followers.

This Hadith also teaches us that if one does not have knowledge of a religious matter, he must seek guidance from the knowledgeable scholars of Islam about it, rather than going by his opinion. Knowledgeable persons (scholars) here means persons who are well-versed in the Qur'an and Hadith and can answer questions in the light of them, and not from the sayings of others or from their own intelligence.

There is a pet shop where there are parrots trained on computers is being sold.

Seeing the advertisement on paper one client [potential buyer] has come and inquiring about the parrots and its price.

There are three parrots which are trained on computers and the owner of the shop explains.

1. The first parrot is an expert in sending mails thru the computer. If you say something it will compose the mail and send it. It costs 500 he said.

The client surprised and curious to know the rest.

2. The second parrot not only composes mail of your content but also takes the copy of the mail from the printer. It is trained with multiple skills and costs 750 he said.

The client becomes so happy hearing this he became nervous to know the skills of the third one.

3. The owner said the third parrot costs 3000, but am not able to say its ability is like the others.

The curious client asks why it’s costlier than the rest even though you don't have any details about what it does.

The owner said I too wonder, but the other two parrots call the third one “Project Manager” that's why. !!!!
