USED vs LOVED

While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 yr old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car. In anger, the man took the child’s hand and hit it many times not realizing he was using a wrench. At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.

When the child saw his father… with painful eyes he asked, ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’
The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times, devastated by his own actions.
Sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches; the child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.

The next day that man committed suicide. . .

___

Anger and Love have no limits; choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life & remember this:  Things are to be used and people are to be loved . The problem in today’s world is that people are used while things are loved.

Let’s try always to keep this thought in mind: Things are to be used, People are to be loved.

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.

love child

more to life than work…

An elderly man in Mumbai calls his son in New York and says, “I hate to ruin your day son, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are getting a divorce. 35 years of marriage… and that much misery is enough!”

“Dad, what are you talking about?” the son screams.

“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer.” the old man says.
“We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Hong Kong and tell her!”

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone.

“Like heck they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, ‘I’ll take care of this.”

She calls Mumbai immediately, and screams at the old man, “You are not getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR??” and she hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. “Okay”, he says, “It’s all set. They’re both coming for Deepavali and paying their own airfare!!”

MORAL OF THE STORY?
No man / woman is busy in this world all 365 days.
The sky is not going to fall down if you take few days LEAVE and meet your dear ones and family.

tiga nasihat…

Pada suatu hari, ada seseorang menangkap burung. Burung itu berkata kepadanya, “Aku tak berguna bagimu sebagai tawanan. Lepaskan saja aku. Nanti aku beri kau tiga nasihat.”

Si burung berjanji akan memberikan nasihat pertama ketika berada dalam genggaman orang itu. Yang kedua akan diberikannya kalau ia sudah berada di cabang pohon dan yang ketiga ketika ia sudah mencapai puncak bukit.

Orang itu setuju, lalu ia meminta nasihat pertama. Kata burung itu, “Kalau kau kehilangan sesuatu, meskipun engkau menghargainya seperti hidupmu sendiri, jangan menyesal.”

Orang itu pun melepaskannya dan burung itu segera melompat ke dahan. Disampaikannya nasihat yang kedua, “Jangan percaya kepada segala yang bertentangan dengan akal, apabila tak ada bukti.”

Kemudian burung itu terbang ke puncak gunung. Dari sana ia berkata, “Wahai manusia malang! Dalam diriku terdapat dua permata besar, kalau saja tadi kau membunuhku, kau akan memperolehnya.” Orang itu sangat menyesal memikirkan kehilangannya, namun katanya, “setidaknya, katakan padaku nasihat yang ketiga itu!”

Si burung menjawab, “Alangkah bodohnya kau meminta nasihat ketiga sedangkan yang kedua pun belum kau renungkan sama sekali. Sudah kukatakan pada kau agar jangan kecewa kalau kehilangan dan jangan mempercayai hal yang bertentangan dengan akal. Kini kau malah melakukan keduanya. Kau percaya pada hal yang tak masuk akal dan menyesali kehilanganmu. Aku pun tidak cukup besar untuk menyimpan dua permata besar! Kau khayal dalam kebodohan! Oleh karenanya kau harus tetap berada dalam keterbatasan yang disediakan bagi manusia…”

peristiwa bulan rejab…

Peristiwa ini berlaku di Baitulmaqdis, di mana ada seorang wanita tua yang sangat rajin beribadat, terutamanya bila tiba bulan rejab.

Di bulan ini dia akan membaca surah al-Ikhlas sebanyak 12 kali di samping mengerjakan ibadah puasa. Di bulan ini juga dia akan menanggalkan segala pakaian mewah dan digantikan dengan pakaian biasa.

Pada suatu hari dia jatuh sakit dan merasakan ajalnya hampir tiba, lalu dia pun meninggalkan wasiat kepada anak lelakinya. Katanya, “Anakku, sekiranya aku mati kapankanlah aku dengan kain yang murah.”

Setelah ajalnya tiba, lalu diuruskan jenazahnya itu oleh anaknya. Tapi kerana mahu menjaga maruah keluarga, anak lelakinya itu telah mengkafankan ibunya dengan kain yang mahal. Pada malam itu, dia bermimpi bertemu dengan ibunya. Kata ibunya, “Kenapa engkau tidak melaksanakan wasiatku dulu? Aku tidak rela dengan kain yang mahal ini.”

Setelah terkejut dari tidur, anaknya merasa menyesal lalu membuat keputusan untuk menggali semula kubur ibunya. Setelah digali sedalam yang mungkin, namun dia masih tidak berjumpa dengan mayat ibunya. Akhirnya dia pulang.

Pada malam itu dia bermimpi lagi. Ada suara yang berkata, “Sesiapa yang memuliakan bulan rejab, maka Allah tidak akan membiarkannya bersendirian di dalam kubur”.

Bila tersedar, dia berasa amat hairan namun bersyukur kerana ibunya telah mendapat perhatian di sisi Allah di atas kelebihan serta amalan ibunya di bulan Rejab.

boulder in your path…

In ancient times, a king had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock.

Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the big stone out of the way.

Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. On approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. As the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway.

The peasant learned what many others never understand.

the window…

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man  was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour a day to drain the fluids from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.
The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and   families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military  service, where they had been on vacation. And every afternoon when the  man in the bed next to the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.
The man in the other bed would live for those one-hour periods where  his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and  color of the outside world. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake, the man had said. Ducks and swans played on the water while  children sailed their model boats. Lovers walked arm in arm amid flowers of every color of the rainbow. Grand old trees graced the landscape, and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite  detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.
One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by.  Although the other man could not hear the band, he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive  words. Unexpectedly, an alien thought entered his head: Why should hehave all the pleasure of seeing everything while I never get to see  anything? It didn’t seem fair. As the thought fermented, the man felt  ashamed at first. But as the days passed and he missed seeing more sights, his envy eroded into resentment and soon turned him sour. He   began to brood and found himself unable to sleep. He should be by that  window – and that thought now controlled his life.
Late one night, as he lay staring at the ceiling, the man by the window  began to cough. He was choking on the fluid in his lungs. The other man   watched in the dimly lit room as the struggling man by the window groped for the button to call for help. Listening from across the room, he never moved, never pushed his own button which would have brought the nurse running. In less than five minutes, the coughing and choking  stopped, along with the sound of breathing. Now, there was only silence–deathly silence.
The following morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths. When she found the lifeless body of the man by the window, she was saddened and called the hospital attendant to take it away–no  words, no fuss. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the man asked if he  could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.
Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his   first look. Finally, he would have the joy of seeing it all himself. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed. It faced a blank wall.
