The Hare & The Tortoise

A tortoise one day

met a hare who made

fun of her.“My, my,

you move so slowly,

you will never get far!”

The tortoise, upset by

the hare’s manner,said,

“Let’s have a race and see

who is faster." The hare

laughed and said,

“You must be joking!But all right, we'll see

who reaches the other side of the hill first."

Off he ran, leaving the tortoise far behind.

After a while, the hare stopped to

wait for the tortoise to come.

He waited and waited till he

felt sleepy. “I might as well take

a nap,” he thought. “Even if she

catches up with me, I can easily

win the race." So he lay down

under a shady tree and closed

his eyes.

When the tortoise passed the

sleeping hare, she walked on

slowly but steadily. By the time

the hare woke up, the tortoise

was near the finishing line. He ran

as fast as he could, but he could

not catch up with the tortoise.

Moral : Working slowly but confidently, will lead you to success.

Hadeeth Newsflash

Reported by Jundub bin `Abdullah (RA): The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "Once someone said: `By Allah! Allah will not forgive such and such (a person).' Thereupon Allah, the Exalted and the Glorious, said: `Who is he who takes an oath in My Name that I will not grant pardon to so-and-so? I have granted pardon to so-and-so and rendered your good deeds fruitless.''' [Muslim]
