In a poor zoo of Pakistan , a lion was frustrated as he was offered not more than 1 kg of meat a day. The lion thought its prayers were answered when one day a Dubai Zoo Manager visited the zoo and requested the zoo management to shift the lion to Dubai Zoo. The lion  was so happy and started thinking of a central A/c environment, a goat or two every day.

On its first day after arrival, the lion was offered a big bag, sealed very nicely for breakfast. The lion opened it quickly but was shocked to see that it contained few bananas. The lion thought that may be they cared too much for him as they were worried about his stomach as he had recently shifted from Pakistan

The next day the same thing happened. On the third day again the same food bag of bananas was delivered.

The lion was so furious; it stopped the delivery boy and blasted at him,' don't you know I am the lion...king of the Jungle..., what's wrong with your management  What nonsense is this  Why are you delivering bananas to me

The delivery boy politely said, 'Sir, I know you are the king of the jungle ... but... you have been brought here on a monkey's visa!!! '

Moral of the Story ... Better to be a Lion in your own country than a Monkey elsewhere

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983.
During his battle with AIDS, one of his fans asked,
"Why does God have to select you for such a bad disease?"
Ashe replied,
"The world over — 50,000,000 children start playing tennis, 5,000,000 learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5,000 reach the Grand Slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to the semifinals, 2 to the finals. When I was holding a cup, I never asked God 'Why me?'
And today in pain I should not be asking God, 'Why me?'"
......

Happiness keeps u sweet,
trials keep u strong,
sorrow keeps u human,
failure keeps u humble and 
success keeps u glowing.

A wise old gentleman retired and purchased a modest home near a junior high school. He spent the first few weeks of his retirement in peace and contentment. Then a new school year began. The very next afternoon three young boys, full of youthful, after-school enthusiasm, came down his street, beating merrily on every trash can they encountered. The crashing percussion continued day after day, until finally the wise old man decided it was time to take some action.

The next afternoon, he walked out to meet the young percussionists as they banged their way down the street. Stopping them, he said, "You kids are a lot of fun. I like to see you express your exuberance like that. In fact, I used to do the same thing when I was your age. Will you do me a favor? I'll give you each a dollar if you'll promise to come around every day and do your thing."

The kids were elated and continued to do a bang-up job on the trashcans.

After a few days, the old-timer greeted the kids again, but this time he had a sad smile on his face. "This recession's really putting a big dent in my income," he told them. "From now on, I'll only be able to pay you 50 cents to beat on the cans."

The noisemakers were obviously displeased, but they accepted his offer and continued their afternoon ruckus. A few days later, the wily retiree approached them again as they drummed their way down the street.

"Look," he said, "I haven't received my Social Security check yet, so I'm not going to be able to give you more than 25 cents. Will that be okay?"

"A freakin' quarter?" the drum leader exclaimed. "If you think we're going to waste our time, beating these cans around for a quarter, you're nuts! No way, dude. We quit!" And the old man enjoyed peace and serenity for the rest of his days.

Think about it!!! Life hereafter...

Why we came in this World

Who created us? We all know and even our children know Allah is our Creator.

But how much time we are giving to Allah.

How much we are obeying HIS orders.

At one day we will leave this world, when?

Now or after the age of 30, 40 50, 60, 70, 80 or maximum 100 years,

Almost half or more of our lives is gone

Not much time is left

At one day, we will die

Leaving all our lovers behind us crying

They will take us to graveyard

Bury us and leave us there

They will pay Fatiha for three days, weeks, months or years

Then they will be busy in their routine work

They will forget you

You will be there in grave alone

Facing two especial angles “ munkir nakeer”

They will ask you three questions

Question 1: Munn Rabbuka? Who is your Rub?

Question 2: Maa deenuka?  What is your Deen?

Question 3: Maa kunta taqaalu fi hajar rajul? What you used to say about the (prophet) in your life?

 

And then your next phase will start

If your answers are correct, you will be shown Heavens,

It will be you future place where you will live permanently

But if you fail to answer, then you will be in trouble

You will be shown Hell, your permanent residence

And you will be punished in grave till the Day of Judgment

Though we know answers are easy but

In grave those were not following ALLAH’s order will find

Difficult to answer

When you will be again wake up from grave,

People says how can we, our parents and our grand parents will wake up again from our graves,

Some one will say his relatives were died in air crash, some say they were burnt, they were drowned in river or sea, their bodies could not be recovered

Even their bodies are disseminated, bone are there or even the bones may not be there

How can they will wake,   BUT

Allah will make them again just like when He made them before

Is it difficult for HIM?

No, not at all………..

Then on the Day of Judgment, those who were on right way will be successful

Those who were wrong, will be looser, permanent losers

This is our destiny……………..

Just think your self, when you are alone

Where we are going?

What will happen to us after death?

We pray to Allah for HIS Mercy and ask forgiveness from HIM only. Because only ALLAH will answer our prayers. No one in this world can do this.

Allah is the only ONE who listens to our prayers.

Get this opportunity of this blessed month of Ramadan

And make Allah happy

So as our permanent life will be smooth

NO LIMITS...... . 
 
While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 yr old son picked stone & scratched lines on the side of the car. 
 
In anger, the man took the child's hand & 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 say his father.... with painful eyes he asked "Dad when will my fingers grow back?" 
 
Man was so hurt and speechless. He went back to car and kicked it a lot of times. 
 
Devastated by his own actions..... . sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches, child had written

"LOVE YOU  DAD"........ ......... ......... . 
 
Anger and Love have no limits, Choose the later to have a beautiful & lovely life ....
