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


A long time ago, there was a king who ruled over a vast kingdom. Though he had tremendous amounts of wealth, he did not have peace of heart. So, he decided to be a good Muslim. He heard that there was a very pious man living in a jungle and many people visited him for advice. The king decided to visit him too for some advice.

When he got there, he asked the pious man "How can I become pious like you?" The pious man replied that remember death 40 times a day for 40 days. The king thought that it was a very easy thing to do. So, he thanked him and left for his palace. He remembered death 40 times a day for 40 days but realized that no change has come to his life. He was somewhat the same as before.

The king became angry and called the pious man to his court. The king told him that he was nothing but a liar and that he should be killed before he fools other people. It was decided that he will be beheaded the next day. But the Pious man had a request. He asked if he could become the king just for a day. He promised that after getting the command, he will not kill the previous king or do any harm to him. So, the king agreed and made the pious man the king for a day.

As soon as the pious man became the king, he went to the market and saw a man selling peanuts. He told the soldiers to catch that man and bring him to the palace. So, the peanut salesman was brought to the court. The pious man told the peanut salesman that he will be killed tomorrow. The peanut salesman became frightened and dropped all his peanuts. He started crying and asked what he did. The pious man said that no matter what he will still be killed tomorrow and locked up in jail for today.

Now, as the peanut salesman knew that he was going to die, he forgot about everything else and started asking forgiveness from Allah. He started praying and doing excessive Dhikr (remembrance of Allah).

Then the pious man asked the previous king if he understood what is going on. The Pious man explained that when you really know that you will die, then you will surely stay away from all evil deeds and engage yourself in the worship of Allah. So, remembering death once properly would be enough to change the life of a human being.

Of course, the peanut salesman was released afterwards.

Dry dates should be given to a pious person to chew and then it should be applied in the mouth of the baby, or the baby should be made to suck it. The pious person should also be requested to make Dua. (Bukhari)

An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a handsome prince." He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.

The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me I’ll turn into a princess, I'll stay with you for one week and do ANYTHING you want."

Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.

Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess and that I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"

The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a princess, but a talking frog, now that's cool."
