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

Abu Waqid Al-Harith bin Auf (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) was sitting in the Masjid with his Companions when three people came to him. Two of them stepped forward to the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) and the third went away. Those two men stood by the side of Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam). One of them found a space in the circle and he filled it, while the other one sat behind him. When the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) finished, he said, "Shall I not inform you about these three people? One of them sought refuge with Allah and Allah gave him refuge; the second one felt shy and Allah showed kindness to his shyness (and so he was accommodated in that meeting), and the last one averted, and so Allah turned away His Attention from him.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary: This Hadith highlights the following three points:

  1. The inducement for participation in the meetings held for the remembrance of Allah.
  2. The merit of avoiding anything that causes inconvenience to people and distinction of those who are bashful.
  3. The condemnation and evil consequences of avoiding, without any genuine reason, the meetings or gatherings which are held to remember Allah or to disseminate religious knowledge.

Puns are little "plays on words" that a certain breed of person loves to spring on you and then look at you in a certain self-satisfied way to indicate that he thinks that you must think that he is by far the cleverest person on Earth, when in fact what you are thinking is that if this person ever ends up in a lifeboat, the other passengers will hurl him overboard by the end of the first day even if they have plenty of food and water.
