There was once a multi-millionaire businessman who journeyed to a tropical island to enjoy a vacation. One morning, he set out from his chalet, bright and early, to walk on the beach and enjoy the morning air. As he strolled, he caught sight of a local fisherman, hard at work in a small boat, pulling fish out of the water.

A few hours later, at approximately 10am, when the businessman was walking on the beach once again, he was surprised to find the fisherman relaxing in a hammock! “How can this man be so lazy?” he wondered. “He only worked for a few hours, and now he’s already resting!” he thought to himself. With these thoughts in mind, he approached the fisherman.

When he reached the fisherman, he greeted him, asked him how he was and made small talk for a few minutes. Thereafter, he asked him, “Why do you work so little? How many fish did you catch today?” The fisherman replied, “I require five fish to feed my family, and five fish to sell. By selling these five fish every day, I earn sufficient money to fulfil my needs.” The businessman then said to him, “If you catch ten fish in a few hours, then by fishing for the entire day, you would be able to earn much more!”

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter: 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

I am caught up in major debts. I have a weakness of purchasing on credit, thinking I can cover my expenses in the months which are interest-free. However, I am now in debts, ‘over my head’ and don’t know how to come out. Is there any wazeefah (du‘aa) which I can read?

On one occasion Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was proceeding in a certain direction when his blessed gaze fell on a building which was tall in height. Seeing the tall building, he asked the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “What is this (building and who has built it)?” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) replied, “This belongs to so-and-so from the Ansaar.” On hearing this, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) remained silent and did not say anything.

Thereafter, this Ansaari Sahaabi came to meet Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) while Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was seated among some of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum). However, when he approached Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and greeted him, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) turned away from him. Hence, the Sahaabi approached Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) a few more times, yet Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) continued to turn away from him and ignore his greeting.

Finally, this Sahaabi realized that he was the cause of Rasulullah’s (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) displeasure and turning away. He thus complained of this to some of his companions saying, “By Allah! I find Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to be treating me differently to before (i.e. he is not showing me the warmth and affection which I normally receive from him).” His companions then explained, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was proceeding in a certain direction when he saw your tall building (and it is your tall building which has caused his displeasure).” The instant this Sahaabi heard this, he returned to his building and razed it to the ground.

The Ill-Effects of Parents Neglecting their Children

“A Muslimah’s Guide to Living a Blissful Life” by Sayyidah Khairun Nisaa (rahimahallah) #10

Presently, the general situation has reached the point where parents are subservient to their children and are completely enamoured by them. This is the result of the parents failing to give their children the correct Deeni (upbringing and) education, where instead of making an effort to teach their children (Deeni values), they remain unconcerned and show scant regard to them.

When the mother and father neglect (to instil Deeni values in) their children, then they (eventually) become the subservient subjects of their children who will rule over them. When the parents will oblige their every request, give them complete freedom of choice, place the happiness of their children before their own happiness, not be prepared to ‘break the hearts’ of their children, and fail to teach them right from wrong, how will those children ever become subservient to their parents. As a result, their situation will definitely be that (lamentable mess) which we witness today.
