The True Winner

The Prophet (S.A.W.) was once passing through a street in Madina when he saw some youths engaged in a contest of lifting a heavy stone. The Prophet (S.A.W.) asked if they would like him to be the judge of who was the strongest of them all. They eagerly agreed.

Then the Prophet (S.A.W.) said: “To prove who is the strongest, there is no need to lift the stone. I can say that the strongest person is he who can control his desire to sin. Such a person is surely brave.”

A story is related about Puryaye Vali who is considered a great world champion as well as a symbol of manliness and bravery. Once he visited another country for a wrestling contest with its champion.
In the street he came across an old woman who was offering people sweets as charity and asking them to pray for her son. She approached Puryaye and offered him the sweets. He asked her what they were for.
She said, “My son is a wrestler who is being challenged by a champion from another country. We live on the income he gets from wrestling matches and if he loses this contest we will have nothing to live on.”

Puryaye says he was at cross roads whether to show his strength or manliness at the contest the next day. Although he was far stronger than his opponent he wrestled in such a way as to let his opponent win. He says that at that moment he suddenly felt as though his heart had been opened and he was surrounded with peace.

Imam Ali (A.S.) has said, “The strongest person is he who has conquered his desires.”

“It was I” said the frog

Two geese were about to go south for their annual Autumn migration, when a frog came up to them and asked if they would take him with them. The geese agreed if the frog could work out how he would be carried by them. The frog produced a long stalk of grass, got the two geese to hold each end whilst he clung to it’s middle with his mouth. In this manner the three were making their journey when they were noticed from below by some men.

The men expressed their admiration for the device and wondered who had been clever enough to discover it. As soon as the frog heard them he opened his mouth and said: “It was I!” He lost his hold and fell to the earth.

The Prophet (S.A.W.): “Even if you do not commit any sins, I fear that you may fall into something which is worse: pride! pride!”

Creation of God Part 4

Salam,

 The Signs In Living Things

 

PROFESSIONAL HUNTERS

In the sixth verse of Surah Hud, Allah states that Allah gives the “sustenance” of all living things, that is, Allah creates all the provisions that provide for their subsistence:

There is no creature on the earth which is not dependent upon Allah for its provision. He knows where it lives and where it dies.

They are all in a Clear Book.

(Chapter Hud: Verse : 06)
