Someone asked Sahl bin Sa'd (Radhiyallahu 'Anhu): "Did Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) ever eat bread made of white (fine) flour?" He replied: "White flour may not have come before Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) till his last days". The questioner then asked: "Did you people use sifted flour in the time of Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam)?". He replied "No, it was not". The questioner then asked: "How was bread from barley prepared?" (because it has more particles in it). Sahl (Radhiyallahu 'Anhu) replied: "We used to blow into the flour and the big particles flew out. The rest was made into dough".

Commentary: Today it is difficult for us to eat even wheat flour that is not sifted. Whereas un-sifted flour is good for digestion. Bread made of fine flour although being heavy (and difficult to digest) has become common. Many homes, because of luxury have kept up this wasteful practice.

A little boy went into a store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits (phone numbers).

The storeowner observed and listened to the conversation:

Boy: "Lady, can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?
Woman: (at the other end of the phone line): "I already have someone to cut my lawn."
Boy: "Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now."
Woman: I'm very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn.
Boy: (with more perseverance): "Lady, I'll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in town."
Woman: No, thank you.

With a smile on his face, the little boy placed the receiver. The storeowner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.

Store Owner: "Son... I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job."

Boy: "No thanks,
Store Owner: But you were really pleading for one.
Boy: No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to!"

This is what we call "Self-Appraisal."
