RoTTeN Pot@toes

A teacher has decided to let her class play a game. The teacher told each child in the class to bring along a plastic bag containing a few cooked potatoes. Each potato will be given a name of a person that the child hates, so the number of potatoes that a child will put in his/her plastic bag will depend on the number of people he/she hates So when the day came, every child brought some potatoes with the name of the people he/she hated. Some had 2 potatoes; some 3 while some up to 5 potatoes.

The teacher then told the children to carry with them the potatoes in the plastic bag wherever they go (even to the toilet) for 1 week. Days after days passed by, and the children started to complain due to the unpleasant smell let out by the rotten potatoes. Besides, those having 5 potatoes also had to carry heavier bags. After 1 week, the children were relieved because the game had finally ended.

The teacher asked: "How did you feel while carrying the potatoes with you for 1 week?"

The children let out their frustrations and started complaining of the trouble that they had to go through having to carry the heavy and smelly potatoes wherever they go.

Then the teacher told them the hidden meaning behind the game.

The teacher said: "This is exactly the situation when you carry your hatred for somebody inside your heart. The stench of the hatred will contaminate your heart and you will carry it with you wherever you go.

If you cannot tolerate the smell of rotten potatoes for just 1 week, can you imagine what is it like to have the stench of hatred in your heart for your lifetime???"

Moral of the story: Throw away any hatred for anyone from your heart so that you will not carry it for a life time. Forgiving others is the best attitude to take Life is to be fortified by many friendships. To love & to be loved is the greatest happiness. Fate determines who comes into our lives. The heart determines who stays...

I pray that u are all in the best of health n imaan.Ameen.

Jazakallah khair 4 such a great post. Mashallah. Hatred is a very bad thing...imagine u died hating sum1...thats a real hard thing 2 think about...I say 4giv n 4get. Plus Islam teaches u 2 4giv n 4get.A big heart that holds no malice 2wards another person is more dear to Allah than one that is full of hate.

Jazakallah once again,

Duas needed as alwz

wa alaikum salaam warahmatullah sis mujahida un Nafs

Jazakillahu khairan for the comments, so true : what if a person dies with hatred of sum1 in his/her heart (Na'oozubillah!)

In my humble opinion we shouldn't hate any person , coz in Islam we love for Allah and hate for Allah, but we don't hate the person we hate the evil/bad deeds.

May Allah Ta'ala grant us all a heart that's free from hatred, malice, and all other evil qualities , Ameen.

Jazakillahu khairan for dropping by, may Allah make all things easy for u sis, right till the time u step into Jannatul Firdous, insha Allah , ameen!
