In the name of God; the highest.


★ Imam Ali - "In everything there is a lesson to be learnt."

Here is a short event from the life of Prophet Muhammad via which we learn a few important lessons.

Around the end of his life the prophet and his coptic wife lady Maria were blessed with a child. This child was named Ibrahim and he bought immense happiness to the prophet's life but after about 1 year the child died and this made the prophet very sad, and the prophet was crying a lot.

At this point one of the companions complained and said 'O muhammad you ask us to be patient,then why are you crying so much and showing impatience?. '

The prophet replied -"The heart is hurt so the eyes will cry , being patient does not mean that you will not express your emotions what it means is that you will not complain to God about the event which has taken place."

Lesson 1-Its natural to feel happy n sad.True patience means accepting every decree of God, whether good or bad.

Holy Quran - " Surely God is with the patient".

☆ At that time an eclipse took place and seeing that the people of the city started saying - 'look even the skies are crying for the loss of prophet muhammad'.The prophet at once gathered the people and said -'The sun and the moon do not cry for anyone they only work as per God's command ,this is an eclipse and you must establish prayer'.

Lesson 2- If the prophet wanted he could have easily taken advantage of the people's ignorance and made all the people follow him, but he did not do that, God does not approve the famous rule-'Everything is fair in love and war' rather the rule of God is -'The end does not justify the means' ; so if we want to do a good work we cannot use unfair means to do that. Cheating people and then visiting holy places and doing charity has no benefit at all.

☆ After the burial when everyone was leaving the the prophet returned to the grave of his son and started placing the stones properly, the companions were surprised and asked him what was he doing, the prophet replied- 'When ever you do any job big or small you better do it properly.'

☆ Lesson 3- Quantity does not matter; quality does.Do one thing but give it your best shot.

Martin Luther King-

"If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well"..

Holy Quran - "He (God) who created death and life-to test you-as to which of you is better in conduct. He is the Almighty, the Forgiving."(67:2)

( Ref for story of Prophet Mohammed is from the book -The MESSAGE by A Jafar Subhani, its available online its free and it is a very good book ).
