Imam's Horse..Funny

An Imam was selling his horse in the market. An interested buyer came to him and requested if he could get a test drive. The Imam told the man that this horse is unique.

In order to make it walk, you have to say Subhanallah.

To make it run, you have to say Alhamdulillah

And to make it stop, you have to say Allahu Akbar

The man sat on the horse and said Subhanallah. The horse started to walk. Then he said Alhamdulillah and it started to run. He kept saying Alhamdulillah and the horse started running faster and faster. Suddenly the man noticed that the horse is running towards the edge of the hill that he was riding on. Being panicked, he forgot how to stop the horse. He kept saying all words out of confusion. When the horse was just near the edge, he remembered Allahu Akbar and said it out loud. The horse stopped just one step away from the edge.

The man took a deep breath, looked up towards the sky and said... Alhamdulillah ..... NEXT was 😢

The moral of this joke is that use the Zikr at proper place to remember Allah and don't misuse. Let zikr be used  to remember Allah from heart as the raider was doing on the cliff and not as ring tones in mobile or for the horse to walk and stop. Use things for proper use and for what they are meant for...🙂.

Football and Me

Someone asked a football why everyone loves kicking you and even touching you with hand is taken as  foul. Football replied sadly, 

"Because I am empty inside. None would dare touch me if I had any matter inside of me"

Isn't our inner emptiness a reason for what's happening upon us? Weren't we strong with the Help of Allah those days when we had our inner qualities?

Value of efforts

Sufyān Al thouri (rah) on his way back from Haj saw a young man so sad and in tears.  He asked him the reason.  The young man replied because he travelled for months and as he reached Makkah,  the Hajj was over.
Sufyan al thouri (rah) then told the young man  *"Give your cry to me and you take my Hajj"*

Those pious people who knew Allah knew that the most valuable thing in the sight of Allah is our *Pursuit and efforts* Result is secondary.

"Behind every pious man is a pious Woman*"

*Moulana Umar Palanpuri* (r.a) grew as an orphan. It was his great pious mother who wanted her  son to be an Aalim. She, though illiterate was too enthusiastic about studies of her son. Whenever Umar as a boy came back from Madrassa she would sit with her son for a while and see what he has learned. She would tell him about Allah and stories of the Prophets. Reminded him time to time  about the questions asked in the grave. This continued long after even when Umar Palanpuri was studying for higher courses of Aalim like Tafsir and Hadith. She would still listen to her son. Sometimes she would say *_"My son, it is me alone who is listening to you now , days will come when you will be heard by millions"_*

In one of Tongi _ijithima_ (Bangladesh) while speaking to millions who are gathered, moulana recalled and told the saying of his mother and broke into tears.
