One night a villager could not sleep owing to a pain in his side. A doctor commented: “This pain is caused by him having eaten a certain leaf. I will be astonished if he lasts through the night, for the arrow of an enemy in his chest were better for him then the eating of such indigestible food!”

That very night the doctor died. Forty years have since passed and the villager yet lives.

If your life is destined to be long, no snake or sword will harm you. However, on the other hand when the fated day of death arrives, the antidote will kill you no less than the poison.

   

An Evil Thought

Sufyaan Thowri (Rahimahullah) was among the famous Imaams in the science of Hadeeth and Islamic law. He once mentioned that he was guilty of a sin due to which he was deprived of offering Tahajjud Salaah for five months. When someone asked him as to what it was, he replied that he had once seen a man crying and thought that the man was a hypocrite.

Imagine the evil consequence of a sinful thought! Yet we say harsh things about people without even thinking twice. And, Allah forbid, if we have something against someone, we cross all limits in slandering him. We even turn his virtues into vices, and publicise and magnify his weaknesses if any. (Fazaail-e-Sadaqaat, p. 74)
