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

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, "He who gives in charity the value of a date which he legally earned, and Allah accepts only that which is pure, Allah accepts it with His Right Hand and fosters it for him, as one of you fosters his mare, until it becomes like a mountain.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary: Here is an Attribute of Allah, His Hand, has been mentioned. We are supposed to believe in it without interpretation or comparison; that is to say that Allah has Hands as befit His Glory. We cannot compare his essential attributes to anything, nor can we describe them.

It is evident from this Hadith that Allah increases the reward of charity which is given from lawfully-earned money until it becomes like a mountain in greatness.

Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking, "surely i can't look that old?" Well... You'll love this one!

I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a new dentist. I noticed his DDS diploma, which bore his full name. Suddenly, i remembered a boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 40-odd years ago. Could he be the same boy way back then? Upon seeing him, however, i quickly discarded any such thought. This balding gray-haired man was way too old to have been my classmate. Hmmm, ...OR Could he???

After he examined my teeth, i asked him if he had attended the same high school.
"yes. Yes, i did. I'm a mustang," he gleamed with pride.
"when did you graduate?" I asked.
He answered, "in 1959. Why do you ask?"
"you were in my class!" I exclaimed.

He looked at me closely. Then, that ugly, old, wrinkled man asked:

"what did you teach?"
