I couldn’t stop laughing over that post in a forum a few days back.
And, I wanted to share it with you the same day. Who doesn’t want a laugh badly once in a while after all 🤣?
‘The Poor FB Servers Last Few Days 🤦♀️’
‘Better Late Than Never’
So, here goes the story I found posted on a ‘Q & A’ forum…
“Woke up to find my GS dog laying on the back patio covered in dirt with a rabbit in his mouth. The rabbit’s not bloody, just dirty. My neighbour’s kids raise blue ribbon rabbits. I instantly knew it was one of theirs. So, I took the rabbit away from my dog, rushed inside, and washed all the dirt off it before my neighbours could come home. It was stiff but I heard some animals play dead when they are afraid; just can’t remember which ones. I took it placed it back in one of the cages in their back yard then I dashed back home. No sooner had I settled in I heard my neighbour screaming so I go out and ask them what’s wrong? Of course, with an innocent face; They tell me their rabbit died three days ago and they buried it but now it’s back in the cage…
Should I keep my poker face?”
It was so hilarious to read this. And, the first thought that ran across my mind was…
“Aur ukhado gadey murdey 😆”
(well, I really do not know how to translate this exactly. But a poor translation can say ‘there is no need to dwell on the dead issues.’)
Though, this laugh gave me a good cheerful start of my day. This led me to think over a deep philosophy of life and one of the beautiful teachings of Islam.
Do you know what our religion tells us regarding those of our sins that Allaah SWT has hidden from other people?
(You can now compare it with the dead rabbit buried in the ground)
Do you know that telling others about your sin that they do not know is a major sin?
I was wondering why.
‘What’s the big deal’ 🤔?
Isn’t it humility 🤔?
Isn’t it a kind of confession 🤔?
No. By Allaah. It is not confession until and unless it is a matter that hiding that might cause harm to somebody. It should be confessed with only those concerned in cases where by confessing situation might improve. Otherwise, just repent secretly with your Lord and never repeat.
What a beautiful Deen!
Sometimes, we just take out a dead rabbit. We clean it. We wash it the way we polish and justify our past sins. Deceived by our own deluded self we end up doing more harm, more than ever before. And, then we think to ourselves ‘why on the earth I took out the dead buried rabbit?’
And, we are in trouble 😟.
It is one of the ways of spreading immorality among Muslims, encouraging evil and tempting others to do similar things. It also means that one does not take sin seriously and regards it as insignificant and that the sinner is damaging his own reputation and exposing his honour to the slander of others. Islam seeks to put people off from doing such things in the strongest possible terms.
Abu Hurayrah said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “All of my ummah will be forgiven except those who sin openly. It is a part of sinning openly when a man does something at night, then the following morning when Allaah has concealed his sin, he says, ‘O So and so, I did such and such last night,’ when all night his Lord has concealed him and the next morning he uncovers what Allaah had concealed.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5721; Muslim, 2990).
For the poor lady who washed the dead rabbit, all I can say is…
‘idhar kunwaa udhae khaai 🙄’
‘Kaahey ko apni shaamat bulaai 🤣’
POKER FACE. My Darling, Poker face.
Sometimes, that is the only option and that is always the best.
