That’s all I can do for you Dad

An old man lived alone in a village. He wanted to spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helped him, was in prison.

The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his situation:

Dear Son,
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my potato garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden, because your mother always loved planting time.
I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot for me, if you weren’t in prison.

Love,
Dad

Shortly, the old man received this telegram: ‘For Heaven’s sake, Dad, don’t dig up the garden!! That’s where I buried the GUNS!!’
At 4 a.m. the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and local police officers showed up and dug up the entire garden without finding any guns.
Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what happened, and asked him what to do next.

His son’s reply was: ‘Go ahead and plant your potatoes, Dad.. It’s the best I could do for you from here.’

Moral: NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, IF YOU HAVE DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING DEEP FROM YOUR HEART YOU CAN DO IT. IT IS THE THOUGHT THAT MATTERS.. NOT WHERE YOU ARE OR WHERE THE PERSON IS….

SHORT STORY WITH A MORAL

A lady was waiting for her flight at the airport. Since she would need to wait many hours, she decided to buy a book and a packet of cookies to spend her time. She sat down in an armchair, in the VIP room of the airport, to rest and read in peace. Beside the armchair where the packet of cookies lay, a man was seated in the next seat, he opened his magazine and started reading.

When she took out the first cookie, the man took one also. She felt irritated but said nothing. She just thought: “What a nerve! If I was in the mood I would punch him for daring!”
For each cookie she took, the man took one too. This was infuriating her but she didn’t want to cause a scene. When only one cookie remained, she thought: “ah… What would this abusive man do now?”

Then, the man, taking the last cookie, divided it into half, giving her one half. Ah! That was too much! She was much too angry now! Angrily she took her things and stormed out of there.

When she sat down in her seat, inside the plane, she looked into her purse to take her eyeglasses, and to her surprise, her packet of cookies was there, untouched, unopened!
She felt so ashamed! She realized that she was wrong. She had forgotten that her cookies were kept in her purse.

The man had divided his cookies with her, without feeling angered or bitter. “While she had been very angry, thinking that she was
dividing her cookies with him.
And now there was no chance to explain herself, nor to apologize.”

There are 4 things that you cannot recover: The stone after the throw! The word after it’s said! The occasion after the loss! The time after it’s gone.
Cherish Every Moment and Fill It With Love and Care For Everyone.

A farmer and the thief

A farmer caught a thief who had been stealing his yam
and decided to drag him to the village square.
Half way to the square, the thief said to the man:-
“Please, I have forgotten my slippers in the farm, can I go
and get them?”
The farmer obliged, “Hurry up! I would be waiting for you
here.”
He waited endlessly and realised he had been fooled.
He went home and told his elder brother what had
happened.
His elder brother brutally slapped him and said:-
“You are extremely dumb! You should have told the thief
to wait while you go get his slippers for him!”.
Who is more stupid!

Attitude is the key to success

Very interesting & meaningful msg to share:
If:
A B C D E F G H I J K LM N O P Q R S T U V W X Y
Z

Is equal to;
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25 26
Then

H A R D W O R K;

8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11=98%

K N O W L E D G E ;

11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5=96%

L O V E;
12 15 22 5 = 54%

L U C K ;
12 21 3 11 = 47%

None of them makes 100%.
Then what makes 100% ???
Is it Money?
NO !!!

M O N E Y=
13 15 14 5 25=72%
Leadership?
NO !!!
L E A D E R S H I P= 12 5 1 4 5 18 1
9 8 9 16=97%
Every problem has a solution, only if we
perhaps change our “ATTITUDE”.
A T T I T U D E;
1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100%
It is therefore OUR ATTITUDE towards Life and
Work that makes
OUR Life 100% Successful..

Amazing mathematics and thats why I love it
cus it’s like our life.
Beautiful message!
Stay away from Anger..
It hurts ..Only You!
If you are right then there is no need to get
angry,
And if you are wrong then you don’t have any
right to get angry.
Patience with family is love,
Patience with others is respect.

Patience with self is confidence and Patience
with GOD is faith.
Never Think Hard about the PAST, It brings
Tears…
Don’t think more about the FUTURE, It brings
Fear…
Live this Moment with a Smile,It brings Cheer.
Every test in our life makes us bitter or better,
Every problem comes to make us or break us,
The choice is ours whether we become victims
or victorious.

Beautiful things are not always good but good
things are always beautiful.
Do you know why God created gaps between
fingers?
So that someone who is special to you comes
and fills those gaps by holding your hand
forever.
Happiness keeps You Sweet..But being sweet
brings happiness..

A Thousand Camel

In the times of Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) there was a severe famine. All the people of Madinah were suffering due to the shortage of food. A caravan made up of a thousand camels loaded with a large stock of food grains belonging to Uthman (Radiallahu Anhu) arrived from Shaam (Syria). Several merchants offered to buy all of it. He asked them what profit they would pay. “Five per cent,” they said.

He answered that he could get higher profit than that. They began to argue with him, saying that they did not know of any merchant who would offer him more than their quote. He said to them, “I know of one who repays a profit of more than seven hundred to a dirham (Arabian currency).” He then recited the verse of the Noble Quran in which Allah Ta’ala mentioned this profit. “The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allah, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah gives manifold increase to whom He pleases.

And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower.” (2:261).
“O traders! Bear witness with me that I donate all this to the poor people of Madinah!” said Uthman (Radiallahu Anhu).

Dear readers, what ever we give for the sake of Allah is really ours and whatever we keep with us will one day be someone else’s. Let us follow the footsteps of our Prophet and the pious Sahabah, with whom Allah was pleased with, by helping the needy ones in this blessed month of Ramadan.
