Anecdotes For Reflection

Extracts from this document...


Anecdotes For Reflection Part Two. 1. What was the book about and what did you learn from it? This book is about morals based on stories on the holy prophet and the companions of the noble prophet. There are stories about the imams and other prophets too. Most importantly the conclusion of this book is about to guide us to right path. I have learnt three main things about the first one is humiliation if you go to the fifth chapter it then go to Page 52-53 it is a wonder full story about 'The short and ugly son ' I'll tell you in brief there was a king who had several of kids to which 1 amongst all of them was short and ugly and the others were tall and beautiful the king always looked down at the short and ugly child. But the king never knew how intelligent the short and ugly kid was. To which the ugly boy told his father ' He who is taller is not necessary better or superior; a sheep is clean but an elephant like a carcass' by which the started to laugh at him and humiliating him, so I have learnt never to humiliate anyone to how ever they are. The second thing I have learnt is 'LIE' if you lie you will be caught out and your lie won't stay for a long time. ...read more.

Then the prophet said 'o' sinner stay away from me or i fear that i would burn from your fire too.

What didn't you understand from the book? I never understood that the noble prophet revealed his prophesy till the age of 20 or higher pg 166 it says the group of Jews said to themselves that a prophet would never go near a unlawful food when the prophet was 7 they had invited him to come and eat the unlawful food And the prophet rejected it. 5.
