can you sleep when the wind blows?

posted by peacefulmuslimah on 26th February 2011 - 0 comments
Years ago, a farmer owned land along the Atlantic seacoast. He constantly advertised for hired hands. Most people were reluctant to work on farms along the Atlantic. They dreaded the awful storms that raged across the Atlantic, wreaking havoc on the buildings and crops. As the farmer interviewed applicants for the job, he received A steady stream of refusals. Finally, a short, thin man, well past middle age, approached the farmer. “Are you a good farm hand?” the farmer asked him. “Well, I can sleep when the wind blows,” answered the little man. Although puzzled by this answer, the farmer, desperate for help, hired him. The little man worked well around the farm, busy from dawn to dusk, and the farmer felt satisfied with the man’s work.

Caring for Parents

posted by peacefulmuslimah on 22nd February 2011 - 1 comment
There was once a great man named sharfuddin Yahya. He cared a lot for his parents when he was a little boy. He was obiediant and kind to them. One night his mother was thirsty and asked sharfuddin for a glass of water. When sharfuddin came to his mother with the glass of water, he found her asleep. He did not think it was wise to disturb his mother s sleep. So he kept standing there with the glass of water in his hand until his mother awoke. His mother opened her eyes after a few hours and found Sharfuddin standing beside her with a glass of water. She asked him “ My dear son have you been standing there all this time?” Sharfuddin said, “ Yes mother, I have been waiting for to wake up to give you a glass of water.” Sharfuddin’s mother was very pleased with him. She blessed him and prayed to Allah to make Sharfuddin a great man. When he grew up, Sharfuddin was really a very great man of his time. Children! You should care for your parents like Sharfuddin did. Never say a harsh word to them. Obey what they say. Behave well with your parents. Do your best at school. Then your parents will be happy. Allah too will be happy with you. Indeed, Allah commands us to be good to our parents. A good Muslim child is kind to his parents. He cares for them.
