words and actions should be the same...

there once was a boy who loved eating sweets. he always asked for sweet from his father.his father was a poor man. he could not always afford sweets for his son.but the little boy did not undertstand this, and demanded sweets all the time.

the boy's father thought hard about how to stop the child asking for so many sweets. the was a very holy man living nearby at the time. the boy's father had an idea. he decided to take the boy to the great man who might be able to persuade the son to stop asking for sweets all the time.

the boy and his father went along to the great man. the father said to him "o great saint, could you ask my son to stop asking for sweets which i cannot afford?" the great man was in difficulty, because he also like sweets very much. how could he ask the boy to give up asking for sweets? the holy man told the father to bring his son back after one month.

during that month, the holy man gave up eating sweets and when the boy and his father returnes after one month, the holy man said to the boy, "my dear child, will you stop asking for sweets which your father cannot afford to give you?"

from them on, the boy stopped asking for sweets.

the boy's father asked the saint, " why did you not ask my son to give up asking for sweets when we came to you a month ago?" the saint replied "how could i ask a boy to give up sweets when i loved sweet myself? in the last month i gave up eating sweets."

a person's example is much powerful than just his words. when we ask someone to do something, we must do it ourselves also. we should not ask others to do what we do not do.


" o' you who believe ! why say you that which you do not? grievously odious is it in the sight of ALLAH that you say that which yo do not."

wahai orang2 yang beriman! mengapa kamu mengatakan sesuatu yang tidak kamu kerjakan? itu sangatlah dibenci di sisi ALLAH jika kamu mengatakan apa yamg tidak kamu kerjakan.
