The Difference Between Grapes & Wine

In his book about Shawam (People of Sham: Syria & Lebanon), Professor Adil Abu Shanab tells the story of an Arab Sheikh who got into a discussion with one of the French Occupation Officers during the French occupation of Syria.
The French Officer invited some Syrian dignitaries to a dinner. One of the invitees was an old Sheikh with his white beard. When the French officer saw the old Sheikh eating with his fingers, he asked the old Sheikh:

"Why are you not eating like us?". At which the Sheik replied:

"Do you see me eating with my nose?"

The French officer replied: "I mean, why don't you use a fork and knife?"

The Sheikh replied" "I am sure of the cleanliness of my hand, but are you sure of the cleanliness of your fork and knife?"

This shut the French officer up, but he made up his mind to get vengeance on the old Sheikh. At the fiest, the wife of the French officer was sitting to his right, and daughter to his left. The French officer, to spite the man of God, asked for wine to be brought, and proceeded to pour for himself, his wife and daughter, and proceeded do drink in a way to annoy the Sheikh.

He asked him: "Listen O Sheikh, you like grapes, and eat them, don't you?" At which the Sheikh replied in the affirmative. The French officer continued talking, pointing towards the grapes, hoping to beat the old Sheikh:
"This drink is from these grapes, so why do you eat the grapes, but keep far from the wine?"

All the guests looked at the old Sheikh, (feeling that he would have no reply for this).

The Sheikh, calmly replied: "This is your Wife, and this, your Daughter, is from her. So how is it that your Wife is legitimate for you but your Daughter is not?"

It is said that the French officer immediately ordered for the wine to be removed from the table.

May Allah guide us all and give us the wisdom not only to discern right from wrong but also to follow the right path after having identified it and then keeping on traveling in that same direction till the last day

Oh Allah! I almost sold you for a quarter!

Several years ago, an Imam from out-of-state accepted a call to a
Mosque in  Houston, Texas   .
Some weeks after he arrived, he had an occasion to ride the bus from his home to the downtown area. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him a quarter in excess change.
As he considered what to do, he thought to himself,
'You'd better give the quarter back. It would be
wrong to keep it.' Then he thought, 'Oh, forget it,
it's only a quarter. Who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company gets too much fare; they will never miss it.
Accept it as a 'gift from ALLAH' and keep quiet.'
When his stop came, he paused momentarily at the door, and then he handed the quarter to the driver and said, 'Here, you gave me a quarter in excess change '
The driver, with a smile, replied, 'Aren't you the
new Imam in town?'
'Yes' he replied.
'Well, I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you excess change.
I'll see you at the mosque.'
When the preacher stepped off of the bus, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, held on, and said,
'Oh ALLAH, I almost sold you for a quarter.'Our lives are the only Quran
some people will ever read. This is a real example of how much people watch us as Muslims, and will put us to the test! Always be on guard -- and remember -- You carry your IMAAN on your shoulders when you call yourself a

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

It is said that when the angel of death is taking the rooh (soul) out          of the body whom passes away....
it is a painful experience.

They say that when the dead awake
on Qayaamat, the effect of the rooh
being taken out will still be there.

Therefore, ALLAH has told us to
recite the Ayatul-Kursi after every Farz salaat and it is stated that
whoever recites this, their rooh will be taken out as you would takeout    a strand of hair from a pile of flour. How light would that feel, Masha Allah!

May Allah save us from any sort of pain and may He let us die with Imaan in
our hearts and save us from the azaab. Aameen..

There is no word as beautiful as Allah.
No example as beautiful as Rasulallah (SAW).
No lesson as beautiful as Islam
No song as melodious as Azan.
No charity as meaningful as Zakat.
No encyclopaedia as perfect as Al-Quran.
No prayer as perfect as Namaz.
No diet as perfect as fasting.
No journey as perfect as Hajj.

Let's realize that Islam is forever beautiful and perfect, please forward this message
to get the sawaab of passing on knowledge.

This is most common among us, most of us talk during Azaan... Read this..

The Holy Prophet(SAW) said, Stop doing everything during the Azaan,
even reading the Quran, the person who talks during the Azaan will not
be able to say the Kalimah-e-Shahadat on his/her death bed....

pass this message to Muslims...

Allahumma- inni-ala-Zikr-ika-wa Shuk-rika-wa-husni-ibad-atika..

A very powerful Duaa has been sent to you. What  do you think you should do with it. Imagine if 1000 people read it just because of you.
