Read and name the story(moral lesson)

Samira worked at a meat distribution factory. One day, when she finished with her work schedule, she went into the meat cold room (Freezer) to inspect something, but in a moment of bad luck, the door closed and she was locked inside with no help in sight.

Although she screamed and knocked with all her might, her cries went unheard as no one could hear her. Most of the workers had already gone, and outside the cold room it’s impossible to hear what was going on inside.

Five hours later, whilst Samira was on the verge of death, the security guard of the factory eventually opened the door. Samira got miraculously saved from dying that day.

When she later asked the security guard how he had come to open the door, which wasn’t his usual work routine.

His explanation: “I’ve been working in this factory for 35 years, hundreds of workers come in and out every day, but you’re one of the few who greet me
in the morning and say goodbye to me every night when leaving after work.

Many treat me as if I’m invisible. Today, as you reported for work, like all other days, you greeted me in your simple manner ‘Hello’. But this evening
after working hours, I curiously observed that I had not heard your “Bye, see you tomorrow”. Hence, I decided to check around the factory. I look forward to your ‘hi’ and ‘bye’ every day because they remind me that I am someone. By not hearing your farewell today, I knew something had happened.
That’s why I started searching every where for you.

Moral Lesson to reflect upon: Be humble, love and respect those around you. Try to have an impact on people who cross your path every day, you never know what tomorrow will bring. Let this story be an inspiration. Let’s share to inspire others; someone else shared this to inspire me…

The story of four wives!

Once upon a time there was a rich King who had four wives. He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to the finest of delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best.

He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her off to neighboring kingdoms. However, he feared that one day she would leave him for another.

He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confidant, and was always kind considerate and patient with him. Whenever the King faced a problem, he could confide in her, and she would help him get through the difficult times.

The King’s 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining his wealth
and kingdom. However, he did not love the first wife. Although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice
of her!

One day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short. He thought of his luxurious life and wondered,
“I ! now have four wives with me, but when I die, I’ll be all alone.”

Thus, he asked the 4th wife, “I have loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?”

“No way!”, replied the 4th wife, and she walked away without another word. Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.

The sad King then asked the 3rd wife, “I have loved you all my life. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?”

“No!”, replied the 3rd wife. “Life is too good! When you die, I’m going to remarry!”

His heart sank and turned cold.

He then asked the 2nd wife, “I have always turned to you for help and you’ve always been there for me.
When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?”

“I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time!”, replied the 2nd wife. “At the very most, I can only send you to your grave.” Her answer came like a bolt of lightning, and the King was devastated.

Then a voice called out: “I’ll leave with you and follow you no matter where you go.” The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was so skinny as she suffered from malnutrition and neglect.

Greatly grieved, the King said, “I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!”

In truth, we all have 4 wives in our lives: Our 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it will leave us when we die.

Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will all go to others.

Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.

And our 1st wife is our Soul. Often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the world. However, our Soul is the only thing that will follow us wherever we go.

The End!

I am lying on the bed. My children, brothers and sisters are all sitting by my bedside. Some close friends too are standing and overlooking my face.
Suddenly I start breathing with long breaths. Someone among the people sitting in the room starts to recite, Surah Ya’siin. Everyone around
repeats with the reciter. My breath starts to ease out. I am opening my eyes and looking at something. Angel of death has arrived.
I am getting late for the eternal journey. My mouth has opened up. My brother is dropping some water into my mouth, it is perhaps the “Zam
Zam” water which I had preserved for the very moment.

Then everyone starts to recite, “Laa’ilaaha illallaaha Muhammadur Rasoolullaah”. I have lost my vision. I have lost my tongue, I have even
lost my sensation but I can still hear. I can hear my loved ones weeping in grief. I’m not dead yet but I am almost lifeless. Angel of death makes the final act and takes my soul out with an
intensive jerk. I have now left this world.

All my wealth, cars, properties, bank balances, contacts and connections are of no use now. My identity is my grave and I am being referred to as
‘dead body’. My near ones are preparing my grave and some of them think it as inauspicious to keep the dead body inside the house for too
long. The house which I myself built and lived in is shrinking in space for me.
My bath is being prepared. I am taken out in the compound for the final bath. My bathroom fitted with expensive
bath fittings is not for me now. I am being wrapped in the white cotton shroud. I am boxed in a wooden box for the travel to my grave. My expensive car is not for me now.
For what then did I amass so many worthless things. Why did I lie to earn the useless wealth.

It is of no use to me. Woe to me for I wasted my life in vain. I forgot that my last journey is near and certain. Why did I sin so much ? Oh! I have lost my game.

Now stop imagining This is going to happen one day with you and me. So be prepared. Good deeds will make your journey and the life of the Hereafter pleasant. Remember death. It is certain. It is so near. This world is just a short dream.

Why Boko haram teaches are Against Islam

The Bokos kidnapped girls and forced them to
change their religion.

Islam says: “Let there be
no compulsion in religion…” (Qur’an 2:256)

The Bokos have forcefully married off some of the girls.

Islam says: “Do not inherit women against their
will” (Qur’an 4:19)

The Bokos are aggressive towards those who do not follow their beliefs.

Islam says: “IF IT HAD BEEN YOUR LORD’S WILL,
all of the people on Earth would have believed [in
one religion]…” (Quran 10:99)

The Bokos have murdered thousands of Muslims and Christians alike in cold blood.

Islam says: “…if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.” (Quran 5:32

The Bokos use the cover of Islam to commit their mayhem and claim they are doing God’s work.

Islam says: “……………BUT DO NOT TRANSGRESS LIMITS; FOR GOD LOVETH NOT TRANSGRESSORS. (Qur’an 2:190)”

The Bokos believe once you are not with them you are an enemy to them.

Islam says: “O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not
that ye may despise (each other)…” (Quran 49:13)

The Bokos have unleashed tyranny and indecency in the land.

Islam says: God commands justice and doing good and giving to relatives. And He forbids indecency and doing wrong and tyranny… (Quran 16:90)

***Despite all their false claims its clear, for those who wish to see, that the Bokos do not represent Islam because they are clearly acting against it!***

Make sure you SHARE this.

Boko haram or pure terrorists?

Dear Muslims/ non Muslims

These are very critical times and we shouldn’t neglect our duties as genuine Muslims to show that we are against the terrorist group.

Try to avoid going to online forums and arguing endlessly.

Share love and friendship to everyone.

Note:

As far as I’m concerned BOKO HARAM are not Muslims but terrorists with their personal agenda.

Don’t you wonder how they keep calling Allah’s name each time they commit a crime as if to purposely tarnish the name of Islam?

Have you ever thought about this???

Obviously people are screaming for the so called genuine Muslims to come out and show they are against BOKO HARAM….but have you thought about the few people some even top official Muslims who did that and were murdered by the terrorists. When the government doesn’t provide any sort of protection!

Be you a Muslim or non Muslim we are both vulnerable to the heinous crime of the terrorist and we must unite and fight them rather than fight ourselves.

Pass this on if you care abit!

For cat lovers and animal lovers and everyother person

The Prophet Muhammad
(SAW) was tender and kind towards cats. He appreciated cats. Muhammad’s (SAW) favorite
cat was called Muezza. There is a well known story regarding the Prophet Muhammad (s) and Muezza.
“When the call to prayers was heard, Muezza was asleep on one of the sleeves of the Prophet’s (SAW) robes. The Prophet (s) wanted to wear the robe to go to prayers.
Rather than disturb Muezza, Muhammad (SAW) cut off the sleeve to leave Muezza in peace. Prophet (s) then stroked the cat three
times, which, it is said, granted Muezza seven lives and the ability to land on his feet at all times (as you might know, cats have a
self-righting mechanism,a righting reflex, which is a complex series of movements when a cat falls and which protects the cat
from breaking her back).”

Islam teaches Muslims to treat cats well and that the cat is a creature to be cherished and loved.
Mistreating a cat is regarded as a severe sin in Islam.

Almighty Allah’s Words.

Surah Al-Anfaal : 50-52ِ

And if you could but see when the angels take the souls of those who disbelieved… They are striking their faces and their backs and [saying], “Taste the punishment of the Burning Fire.

That is for what your hands have put forth [of evil] and because Allah is not ever unjust to His servants.”

[Theirs is] like the custom of the people of Pharaoh and of those before them. They disbelieved in the signs of Allah, so Allah seized them for their sins. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and severe in penalty.
