Story of two friends…


Let me share a story with you. Two friends were travelling together. One was blind and the other could see. Now, when the night fell, they decided to take some rest and continue the journey in the morning. This area was such that in the day time the temperature increases pretty high but in the night the temperature decreases significantly. Much like the areas near the oceans. In the morning, the person who could see left to find some food. The blind man stayed behind and was just touching here and there around him. Now, what had happened at night is that one snake was passing by this place. But due to the extreme coldness, the snake became inactive, frozen, and straight. This blind man’s hand fell on this snake and he thought that it’s a very nice stick. He picked it up and became very happy. To a blind man, a good stick is a very valuable thing.

Later, the person who could see came back with some food and

saw his friend touching a snake. So he shouted and said to throw it away. But the blind man insisted, you want this stick don’t you? I am not going to throw it away. After trying hard, he couldn’t convince the blind man to throw it away. Anyway, they continued their journey. Then the temperature began to rise and the snake started regaining its energy. When it received enough heat, it flexed its muscles and bit the blind man.

We can compare ourselves to this situation also. We are like this blind man and Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is like the person who could see. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) went to Miraj and saw the horrors of Hell and the blissfulness of Paradise. Now, the Prophet told us about many things to give up and stay away but because we can’t see the dangers that’s why we don’t pay any attention to them. But when the time comes, we will get into serious problems. That is why, we should follow the rules and regulations of Islam. while we are committing since they seem harmless to us but soon we’ll see their consequences ..

Narrated Ibn `Umar: Allah’s Apostle has made Sadaqat−ul−Fitr obligatory, (and it was), either one Sa’ of barley or one Sa’
of dates (and its payment was obligatory) on young and old people, and on free men as well as on slaves.



Narrated Nafi`:
Ibn `Umar said, “The Prophet made incumbent on every male or female, free man or slave, the payment of one Sa’ of dates or barley as Sadaqat−ul−Fitr (or said Sadaqa−Ramadan).” The people then substituted half Sa’ of wheat for that. Ibn `Umar
used to give dates (as Sadaqat−ul−Fitr). Once there was scarcity of dates in Medina and Ibn `Umar gave barley. ‘And Ibn `Umar used to give Sadaqat−ul−Fitr for every young and old person. He even used to give on behalf of my children. Ibn `Umar used to give Sadaqat−ul−Fitr to those who had been officially appointed for its collection. People used to give
Sadaqat−ul−Fitr (even) a day or two before the `Id.

Hadith of the day : He found his money

Narrated Abu Huraira The Prophet said,

“A man from Bani Israel asked someone from Bani Israel to give him a loan of one thousand Dinars and the later gave it to him. The debtor went on a voyage (when the time for the payment of the debt became due) but he did not find a boat, so he took a piece of wood and bored it and put 1000 diners in it and threw it into the sea. The creditor went out and took the piece of wood to his family to be used as fire−wood.” , “When he sawed the wood, he found his money.”

Hadith of the day : Do not eat a thing which is given in charity…

Narrated Abu Huraira :

Al−Hasan bin `Ali took a date from the dates given in charity and put it in his mouth. The Prophet said, “Expel it from your mouth. Don’t you know that we do not eat a thing which is given in charity?”

Neither buy, nor take back your alms which you have given..

Narrated `Umar:
Once I gave a horse in Allah’s Cause (in charity) but that person did not take care of it. I intended to buy it, as I thought he would sell it at a low price. So, I asked the Prophet (p.b.u.h) about it. He said, “Neither buy, nor take back your alms which you have given, even if the seller were willing to sell it for one Dirham, for he who takes back his alms is like the one who swallows his own vomit.”
