Wisdom: Saying/doing the right word/thing at the right moment at the right place

Agree? Although it could be something unpleasant or hurtful, sometimes it just need to be done/said.

In seerah (history), a man once came to see prophet Muhammad SAW. He confessed that he drank alcohol, involved in gambling and so on. He wanted the prophet to advised him. So the prophet told him, 'Don't lie'.
Short and simple.

The following is probably a longer version of the same story. See how a short message could lead to a very deep meaning if it was conveyed at the right moment in a right way.

TELLING THE TRUTH : Telling the truth is a very good habit. If you always speak the truth, you can save yourself from a lot of trouble! Here is a story of a man who did a lot of bad things, but his promise to tell the truth saved him.

Once a man came to the prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) and said, "Oh prophet of Allah, I have many bad habits. Which one of them should I give up first?" The prophet said, "Give up telling lies first and always speak the truth." The man
promised to do so and went home. At night the man was about to go out to steal. Before setting out, he thought
for a moment about the promise he made with the prophet. "If tomorrow the prophet asks me where have I been, what shall I say? Shall I say that I went out stealing? No, I cannot say that. But nor can I lie. If I tell the truth,
everyone will start hating me and call me a thief. I would be punished for stealing."

So the man decided not to steal that night, and gave up this bad habit. Next day, he felt like drinking wine, when he was about to do so, he said to himself, "What shall I say to the prophet if he asks me what did I do during the
day? I cannot tell a lie, and if I speak the truth people will hate me, because a Muslim is not allowed to drink wine." And so he gave up the idea of drinking wine.

In this way, whenever the man thought of doing something bad, he remembered his promise to tell the truth at all times. One by one, he gave up all his bad habits and became a good Muslim and a very good person. If you always speak the truth, you can be a good person, a good Muslim whom Allah likes and favors. If Allah - our Creator - is pleased with us, He will reward us with HEAVEN, which is a place of happiness and joy.

Make a promise: I shall always speak the truth.

I believe it is essential to advise people in a way that is best for them. Yes, it is hard to tell which one is the best for them but sometimes, just do it is also probably the best. The most important is not to humiliate them in front of others. Do it in  away that preserve their dignity although whatever they did might be very unpleasant for us that we feel the urge to yell 'STOP' at them immediately!

Okay, that's all for now. I need to continue reading as exam is only 4 days away. Pray for my success lads.
May Allah bless all of you on this very special day, the Friday.


I'm actually reading this one novel called 'One day'. Never thought that i would love an English novel in my life other that the Harry Potter Series. This one just captured my attention. Maybe because of the genre (romantic) or the urge to finish it before the movie adapted from this international bestselling  novel came out this early August! Ho yeah!

Barcelona part 2 will be out after July 6th okay. Bye...
