British man and Sheikh

A British man came to Sheikh and asked: Why is it not permissible in Islam for women to shake hands with a man?
The Sheikh said: Can you shake hands with Queen Elizabeth?
British man said: Of course not, there are only certain people who can shake hands with Queen Elizabeth.
Sheikh replied: our women are queens and queens do not shake hands with strange men.


Then the British man asked the Sheikh: Why do your girls cover up their body and hair?
The Sheikh smiled and got two sweets, he opened the first one and kept the other one closed. He threw them both on the dusty floor and asked the British: If I asked you to take one of the sweets which one will you choose?
The British replied: The covered one.
The Sheikh said: that’s how we treat and see our women.

Life is tough but it’s a lot tougher when you are not paying attention

1st year students of MBBS (Medicine) were attending their 1st anatomy class.
They all gathered around the surgery table with a real dead dog.
The Professor started class by telling two important qualities as a Doctor.
e.g. He inserted his finger in dog's mouth tasted it in his own mouth.
Then he said them to do the same.
The students hesitated for several minutes.
But eventually everyone inserted their fingers in dog's mouth & then tasted it.

When everyone finished, the Professor looked at them and said:
The most important 2nd quality is OBSERVATION, I inserted my Middle finger but tasted the Index finger.
Now learn to pay attention.

Amazing Moral Story - A Painter - Saved by God

Once upon a time, a well-known painter was working on a painting. It's an incredibly beautiful painting to be shown at the Airport during the upcoming festival season. The painter wanted this painting to be a master piece.

He worked on it for weeks on the top of a 24 storey building. He was consumed by and excited with his own painting that he unconsciously took a few step backward while admiring the 2 x 8 m painting. He didn't look back when he walked backward. He kept on walking backward until it was a step away from the edge of the 24storey building. Just one more step backward and he could have fallen to his death.

A man saw what the painter was doing and was about to shout at him to warn him when he realized that his shout might surprise the painter and thus make him take that fatal one step backward and fall down. So the man took a brush and some paint and began to paint on the beautiful painting until it was damaged.

Upon realizing what happened to his painting, the painter got very angry and moved forward to hit the man. However, some other people who were also present at the vicinity held him and showed him his last position which almost made him fall.

MORAL: Sometimes we have painted our future with such beauty and dreamed of beautiful days we will spend with our loved one, but then God seemes to destroy our beautiful painting when God sees what danger lies ahead of us. Sometimes we are angry and annoyed by what God has done to us, but one thing we have to keep in our mind is that our Creator is Most Wise and always keeps our best of interest in mind!

So when God, in His Infinite Wisdom, tests us with a situation that we think is difficult or takes away something that in our mind was good for us, we need to remember that perhaps it may not be so. Perhaps if we had continued in our way, it might have been harmful for us and whatever God decreed for us is actually better for us, for He is All-Wise and All-Knowing.
