    p.s. Is it alright if I start one thread per day in each sub-forum ? As I think very less people would like to read all the topics within one thread. Just my personal thinking though I might be wrong.

    JazakAllah khair.

          Alright, I would try to limit it to one per day. Well, they are not all copy and paste. Some of them I have heard from scholars and noted from them, some of them I wrote myself, few of them I heard from different sources, and the rest of them I copy and pasted whenever I come across anything interesting through any source at any stage of life. I am able to share them at once, because I have been collecting them for a long time in one place, and it is easy for me to copy them from there and paste here.

            Kindness

            One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.

            Instead of a meal, he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry and so she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?"

            "You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness." He said, "Then I thank you from my heart." As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strengthened also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

            Years later, that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.

            Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, he went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor's gown, he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day, he gave special attention to the case.

            After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested from the business office to pass the final billing to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge, and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She read these words:

            "PAID IN FULL WITH ONE GLASS OF MILK....


            (Signed)
            Dr. Howard Kelly."


            Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: "Thank You, God, that Your love is shed abroad through human hearts and hands.".

              Step by step

              A certain man had to go out to another town miles away. It was night and pitch dark, and all he had was a tiny little lantern which could, at most, light a couple of steps. Because the journey seemed so long, and the night dark, he was depressed and unsure - unsure of reaching his destination with only this tiny light.
              While he stood at his door utterly frustrated and helpless, a Realised Man happened to appear and asked him why he was standing at his door with a lantern.

              The man replied that he really did not know what to do;
              though he was all set for the journey, it appeared so long, and the night so dark, that his small lantern could not really be of much use.
              The Realised Man explained to him that it was not necessary to have a big enough light to illuminate the whole way.

              'As you proceed' he said, 'the light will move with you, so that the next one or two steps will always be clear. All you need to do is to hold on to this light and start walking. As the darkness clears with the rising of the sun, if you keep walking you will reach the destination in the full light of the noon.

                        A cup of water



                        A famous sufi Sheikh once visited the Caliph Harun al-Rashid, the caliph asked him if he wanted anything. The Sheikh said that he only desired a simple cup of water.


                        When the cup of water was given to the sheikh he asked the Caliph, "what would you give if no water was available to you and you are forced to trade for this one cup of water?"

                        Harun al-Rashid replied, "I most certainly would give at the very least half of my kingdom"



                        The Sheikh then said, "and what would you give if you were not able to release the waste of that water from your body unless you traded something for it?"



                        The Caliph said, "I would certainly give the other half of my kingdom"



                        The Sheikh smiled and told the Caliph, "It is God that controls both these things, so what is the worth of all your kingdom if it can be so easily traded for a simple cup of water".


                        There are many (apparently) minor things in our life which we take for granted (from Allah) till the time it is taken away from us. Similarly this life which we easily laugh away (at times) we would realize the value of each and every moment of it when it would be taken away from us, but then it would be too late, not even the gold of the whole world would be enough to bring back even one second.

                        May Allah (swt) help us in realizing the importance of everything that HE has blessed us with. Ameen!

                          Debate



                          A Mufti sat next to a Reverend on a flight.

                          The Rev asked the Mufti:

                          What is your occupation?

                          Mufti: I'm into big business

                          Rev: But what business exactly?

                          Mufti:
                          I deal with God

                          Rev: Ah, so you're a Muslim religious leader. I have one problem with you Muslims: you oppress your women.

                          Mufti: How do we oppress women?


                          Rev: You make your women cover up completely and you keep them in the homes.

                          Mufti: Ah. I have a problem with you people: you oppress MONEY

                          Rev: What? How can one oppress money?

                          Mufti: You keep your money hidden away, in wallets, banks and safes. You keep it covered up. Why don't you display it in public if it's a beautiful thing

                          Rev:
                          It will get stolen, obviously.

                          Mufti:
                          You keep your money hidden because it is so valuable. We value the true worth of women far, far more. Therefore, these precious jewels are not on display to one and all. They are kept in honour and dignity

                          Rev:
                          -*silence*

                            A stunning story

                            I read it somewhere, I first thought I shouldn't share it, but now I think there is a lesson in it.


                            Note: People under the age of 18, please don't read it.






                            Allah (SWT) has a way of allowing us to be in the right place at the
                            right time....

                            I was walking down a dimly lit street late one evening when I heard
                            muffled screams coming from behind a clump of bushes. Alarmed, I
                            slowed down to listen and panicked when I realized that what I was
                            hearing were the unmistakable sounds of a struggle: heavy grunting,
                            frantic scuffling and tearing of fabric.

                            Only yards from where stood, a woman was being attacked. Should I get involved? I was frightened for my own safety and cursed myself for
                            having suddenly decided to take a new route home that night. What if I became another statistic? Shouldn't I just run to the nearest phone and call the police? Although it seemed an eternity, the deliberations in
                            my head had taken only seconds, but already the cries were growing
                            weaker.

                            I knew I had to act fast. How could I walk away from this? No, I finally
                            resolved, I could not turn my back on the fate of this unknown woman,
                            even if it meant risking my own life. I am not a brave man, nor am I
                            athletic. I don't know where I found the moral courage and physical
                            strength-but once I had finally resolved to help the girl.

                            I became strangely transformed. I ran behind the bushes and pulled the assailant off the woman. Grappling, we fell to the ground where we wrestled for a few minutes until the attacker jumped up and escaped.

                            Panting hard, I scrambled upright and approached the girl, who was
                            crouched behind a tree, sobbing. In the darkness, I could barely see
                            her outline, but I could certainly sense her trembling shock.

                            Not wanting to frighten her further, I at first spoke to her froma
                            distance. It's OK," I said soothingly. "The man ran away. You're safe
                            now."

                            There was a long pause and then I heard the words, uttered in wonder, in amazement.

                            "Dad, is that you?"

                            And then, from behind the tree, stepped my youngest daughter, Maliha.

                            Do all the good you can,
                            In all the ways you can,
                            In all the places you can,
                            At all times you can,
                            To all the people you can
                            .......
                            p.s. Kindly forgive me if anyone feels that this story should not have been shared. My intentions were only to sincerely share that (Allah forbid) such an incident can happen to anyone if people don't take care.

                              A dog is better than me

                              Intense pain would have raised in anyone's heart at the scene of that angry master hiting the dog very hard. The dog could have responded by biting the master BUT he didn't. The silent look in the dog's wet eyes can't be expressed in words. A look of sincerity which penetrates through the depth of soul, which might make the most cruel person cry. Motionless with a bowed head, a body language of the most obedient servant, who is ready to serve his master, obey every order and even give it's life for him, no matter how many times he hit it.

                              WHY ???

                              Because the master had given him food for few days.

                              How could have anyone controlled his tears when at one call the dog placed his head in his masters feet, ignoring what he did to him earlier.

                              And how many times do we place our head infront of our master after 5 calls a day, who doesn't even disgrace us the way that dog was disgraced. Instead HE says that after you do severe disobedience in everyway, if you walk towards me I run towards you.

                              HE keep feeding us even if we are disobedient to him, but he waits for us to repent, so that we may realize that He has blessed us with unimagineable blessings. He promises that I forgive all your pasts sins if you repent only ONCE sincerely from heart with an intention of not repeating them.

                              The dog shows his loyalty by guarding his masters house all night, but we don't show loyalty by guarding "ourselves" from sins which doesn't give benefit to our master but to ourself.


                              IS that dog better than US in terms of thankfulness, who's sincerity and obedience is only because of food and we have infinite reasons to show respect to our parents and our Allah through obedience in a REAL way, which they deserve?
