Let’s be polite to our helpers and those who serve us
Cook maid, sweeper, washer man, or everyone who help us in any capacity. Most of all to the senior parents who depend on us and our spouse and the most adorable gift of Almighty our children!
IT HURTS LESS WHEN SOMEONE CARES

When i embraced her it was something out of the world joy for her and for me too. Love is most beautiful fragrant feeling.

A man who treats his relatives well

in order to return their good treatment

of him shows no real love

for them.

The man who really shows love

for his relatives is one who

treats them well

despite their being unkind to him.

Hadith of Al-Bukhaari

mother-and-child2

A  man thus addressed the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h):

‘O’ Messenger of God, who rightfully deserves the best treatment from me?’

‘Your mother,’ The Prophet said.

“Then who?’

‘your mother’ replied the Prophet

The man asked again.

‘Your mother’ replied the Prophet

‘Then who?’

‘Your mother’  said the Prophet

“The man asked once more,

‘Then who?’

‘Your father,’ said the Prophet.

Hadith of Al-Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Abu Hurayrah

(She is my very respected dear sister in law who spends her night in worshiping Allah and never  hurts any one with her words or deeds. May she live long to  illuminate us with her wisdom. She’s very literary and an institute within herself. Very hospitable, humble and always smiling )

Intention is an alchemic treatment that can turn base into noble gold.It is sometimes interpreted that good intentions justify bad deeds too and turn sins creditable. This is entirely wrong. Sin is always a sin, no matter how noble the intention may be. For example if someone breaks into a house to steal with the intention of giving away as alms whatever he would steal, would be a thief deserving the set punishment. His good intentions would not earn him any merit nor would his sin be pardoned.

Similarly if;

  • One treats his children with love because it earns him merit
  • Hospitality to guests is an act of merit
  • Planting a sapling or plant in the house so that it may one day be of use of some man or animal and please the onlooker would be a good deed
  • If a woman dresses herself in beautiful attire and wears ornaments and adorns herself to please her husband and if a man remains clean and neat to please his wife, both are good deeds
  • If a watch is worn to know the value of time which is indented to be spent on good deeds, it is an act that earns merit

May Almighty guide us all to lead a pious and healthy life to help others and be rewarded

Neighbor’s rights are many and are ordained by Allah. The holy Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h)said; “Gabriel advised me  so much regarding neighbor’s rights that I began to suspect that he would be included among the heirs”

The first and foremost and the principal right the neighbor is not to cause him pain, trouble or sorrow; moreover, helping him in his need, sending him occasional gifts, sharing his joys and sorrows are all meritorious and rewarding acts. If a neighbor is hungry, regardless of color cast or religion, rich or poor, it is not meritorious to feed him but also a bounden duty.

Cordial and courteous behavior is very pleasing to Allah and is also rewarding.

There was a man who used to give loans to poor people. When his assistant used to go to them to recover the loans, the master would urge him to be forgiving to those who were not able to pay back his loans with ease, believing that, in that way, perhaps God would show him forgiveness.

When the man came face to face with the Almighty, He forgave him.

Hadith of Al-Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Abu Hurayrah

It’s a true story about a very handsome ultra modern young man. He belonged to a very educated civilized privileged family. A word from his mouth of any wish was at once fulfilled.

He is the youngest of his seven brothers and 3 sisters. He was born in a Muslim family. But he never practiced any formal religious duties. He would sing dance attend parties and was not less than a playboy. He had a flock of friends. All of them were trendy and easygoing.

When got home late night, he was snubbed scolded by elder brothers and mother.  Having belonged to a cultured and good family with values and virtues followed, so he just listened to hot words with his head down, uttering not a single word.  He slipped in his room quietly for the next day’s plans with his friendsJ

Constant nagging, scolding and asking to get serious to either do job or take care of family business Abdullah decided to get into hotel industry. He joined classes to become a chef.

There he enjoyed the hotel ambiance and learning too. During this one of cousins kept seeing him often. Though Abdullah tried to avoid seeing him as his cousin Shan was trying to guide him to the virtuous path. Consistent effort worked. Abdullah gradually left his friends’ late night parties and dating etc. He started coming early at home. Parents and all family members were pleased to see the positive change in him.

His elder brother who was doing business in Bosnia asked him to join him. Hence Abdullah went to Bosnia. For couple of weeks he just visited sightseeing places. His brother wanted him to get familiar with new environment so he let him do what it pleases him.

One day Abdullah having an inquisitive nature went to a cemetery to see their way of making graves and system. There he saw a young very pretty girl lying under a tree insensible.

Abdullah was a stranger and didn’t know the system of handling problems. But as a human being he knew that he should help her. Thus he carried her to a hospital in cab.

Abdullah used to visit her daily. She was crippled, having only one leg. She had lost hope to live a happy life so addicted to drugs.

Abdullah fell in love with her. Her beauty was mesmerizing. Lara also became fond of him. Abdullah married her. Abdullah’s mother did not approve of this marriage as she wanted him to marry a normal Muslim girl. Abdulla convinced his mother by saying that a normal girl could have met accident and lost her leg then would Abdullah leave her?  Lara was a lucky girl. Abdullah loved her deeply. He washed cleaned cooked everything. She completed her education and became lecturer. Allah blessed with a son.

Abdullah was getting aged and tired of earning and looking after wife and son. So he married a Libyan widow with her 4 children.

Abdullah got one daughter from his new wife. Lara allowed Abdullah without any ill feeling.

Now he has 6 children and two wives. The two families live in separate homes but not far away. All of them are happy. Abdullah is basically a very kindhearted man. He was so handsome and rich that he could easily marry any beautiful girl but he tried to help and be happy

Love begets love!

My mother used to enlighten me with   ethical stories at bed time. Those character building stories have left great impact on me.

Let me share one of those stories with you today 🙂 

Long time back, famine broke out in a country.  A rich charitable man distributed loaves of bread to children every day in his region. Every day the children gathered at the rich man’s house to get loaves of bread.

As soon as the servants brought out loaves, they fought among themselves and struggled hard to get them.

But one little orphan girl waited pa­tiently for her turn. But every time she got the smallest loaf last of all.

One day as usual, she got the smallest piece.

She went home and sat in a corner to eat it. As she cut it, her eyes gleamed with joy. She saw a gold coin in it. She went back at once to return it to the rich man.

The rich man was very delighted at her honesty. He gave her not only that coin, but two more gold coins for her honesty and some big loaves as reward of being patient and serene.

May we all learn and practice to be grateful for what we already have and be patient to wish and get our wishes realized, amen!

Moral:

Patience brings its own reward.

The holy Prophet Muhammad sallallaho alaihewassalam said,; He who visits the sick continues to remain in the fruit garden of Paradise until he returns.

Umar’s Wife Acts as Midwife

History repeats itself, but I doubt because the event I am going to write just now is and can be read-only in the books. Years have passed, but I never happened to read or hear any such event been repeated. If any of my readers have any experience of such events in and around the whole full world, please do share.

Amir Ul mu’minin Hazrat Umar Farooq (radiyallahu ‘anhu) during the time of a caliphate, used to patrol the streets and suburbs of Medina himself during the night to be abreast with the happenings.
One night during his regular night patrols he saw a camel-hair tent pitched in an open place. He had never before seen such kind of shelter so he got closer to the shelter. There he saw a man sitting outside the tent, and he heard moaning and groaning coming from inside the tent. Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) after greeting the stranger asked him about him and his problem. The stranger told me that he was from the desert. He had come to seek help from the Amir Ul mu’minin Hazrat Umar Farooq. He refused to share with Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu. Hazrat Umar insisted that maybe he could help him at that hour of his need at night. So the stranger told him that his wife is having labor pains, and there is No one with her to help.
Hazrat Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) got up instantly n headed towards his home. On reaching home, he broached the subject to his wife Umme Kulthoom, “Allah ta’ala has brought you an opportunity to receive great blessings.” What is it O, Mir Ul mu’minin?”
Umar said,” there is a poor desert woman’s in labor pains out in addition to that none to attend her. ”Umme Kulthoom (radiyallahu ‘anha) said that she was ready to help if it pleases Umar.

Umme Kulthoom (radiyallahu ‘an hu) was after all daughter of Bibi Fatima (radiyallahu ‘anha) and granddaughter of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wassallam)
Umar said, ” then you should make all due haste. Also take some butter, pan, supplies and other necessities needed during the childbirth.”
Umme Kulthoom left for the place with all things required there in the tent. Umar followed her. She entered the tent while Umar made a fire and occupied himself with cooking which those people could eat. After short while Umme Kulthoom (radiyallahu ‘anha) called out from inside the tent, “Amir al mu’minin, congratulate your friend on the birth of a son.”
The person was quite embarrassed when he heard the title of Amir Ul mu’minin and realized the position of the person who had been serving him. But Umar radiyallahu ‘anha) put all his fears at rest, saying, ‘That is all right, there is nothing to worry about.”
He then placed the pan near the tent, asking his wife to take it and feed the woman. She fed her and returned the pan to Umar. Then Umar asked the Bedouin to eat also as he had been awake all night. Having served Umar and his wife returned home telling the Bedouin < ” come tomorrow, I shall see what I can do for you.”
Is there any king, nay a petty chief or even an ordinary middle-class person of today who will take his wife out at late night in the wilderness to attend a sick stranger woman n prepares food. So dear readers we should realize that unless we follow the footsteps of those Allah fearing people, we cannot deserve the special blessings of Almighty Allah
