The Cat and the Rooster

A Cat pounced on a Rooster, and looked for some good excuse for making a meal of him, for cats normally do not eat roosters, and she knew she shouldn't. At last she said, "You make a great nuisance of yourself at night by crowing and keeping people awake; so I am going to make an end of you." But the Rooster defended himself by saying that he crowed in order that men might wake up and set about the day's work in good time, and that they couldn't do without him. The Cat replies "That may be, but I'm not going without my dinner". She killed and ate him.

MORAL: The want of a good excuse never kept a villain from his crime.

Ibn Abbas (Radhiyallah 'Anhu) says: "Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa sallam) said: 'Use Kuhl made of Ithmid on the eye; it brightens the eyesight and strengthens and increases the growth of the eye lashes.

(Sayyadina Ibn 'Abbaas (Radiyallahu Anhu) also used to say: Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) had a small container for keeping Kuhl from which he applied Kuhl in each eye three times every night."

Commentary: Ithmid is a special type of Kuhl which is reddish black in colour. It is obtained in the Eastern countries. Some of the learned say it is the Isfahaani Kuhl, and others say it is the Totiya. Some Ulama say, it means those who have good eyesight and it should be used by those with whose eyesight it agrees, otherwise a sick person's eyes will pain more by its use. It is more beneficial to apply Kuhl at the time of sleeping as it will remain longer in the eyes, and will penetrate more into the pores.

There are different narrations on the number of times it should be applied in each eye. In a few it is stated that it should be applied three times in each eye, as mentioned above. In other narrations it is stated that it should be put three times in the right eye and two times in the left eye. It is supposed that the variations are because of the different times of the narrations. At a certain time, Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa sallam) applied it in one manner and at another time in the other manner.

Three politicians were in a heated discussion as to which one was the best liar. As the discussion was getting louder and louder the bartender suggested they have a liers contest. After agreeing to the rules the first says, "I have never told a lie,"

The second indicated that he was not capable of telling a lie.

The third won the prize as he assured the bartender that, "The other two had told the exact truth."
