The Thirty-Second Quiz

Author Unknown

Don't bother getting a pen and paper... just read... If you can't answer them, just keep going.


1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Olympics.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer prize.

5. Name five entrants in the Guinness Book of Records.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remembers the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They're the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Now here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. Name three teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worth while.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier?

The lesson?

The people who make a difference in your life aren't the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They're the ones who care.

(Wishing you a BEAUTIFUL day!)

Subahanallah, Jazakallah for that great post.

Just a few quick thoughts...
Who was it that cared for the Ummah the most, the one who practically showed us how to live our lives and how to die as well.

Then we need to ask ourselves what we have done for ourselves islamically in gratitude and honour of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) sacrifices, trials and tribulations that he went through for us.

Wasalaam

As salaamu alaikum Warahmatullah

Alhumdulillah an excellent point.

No-one has cared or will ever care for us like our Prophet Muhammed (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)did...If he was amongst us right now, he would have NEVER judged us by todays superficial standards and he would have loved us because we are part of His Ummah.

Today, most people are, in a word - Selfish. It's each for his own and indeed, money 'is the root of all evil'...How has our focus been polluted so?? How is it have we forgotten the person that matters the most??!

May Allah save us and grant us companionship with our Beloved Nabi (Sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam in Jannah and his (peace be upon him)'s intercession on the Day of Qiyaamah. Ameen.

"
He broke his tooth for me at Uhud,
And bled for me at Ta'if.
He cried for me, tears of concern,
Just so I could have this belief.

His enemies admired his teachings,
Uniting every religion, every clan.
Till ISLAM came to every corner of the world,
O, but indeed he was only a man.

To own a house, or build his wealth
Was not his main priority.
To establish ISLAM was more essential,
To bring us under a Higher Authority.

Don't you want him to plea for your case,
When before ALLAH-The Judge-you stand?
Don't you wish to be around his fountain,
A burning desire to drink from his hand?

So I love him more than all creation,
My Leader, my Humble Prophet.
Muhammad (SAWS) was a mercy to all mankind,
And to me, he is ... MY BELOVED!"

Assalamu alaikum,

I remember a teacher of mine saying: You exchange about a thousand glances with your pupils daily. One of such glances can affect the child for ever in a negative or positive manner.

I remember that this same teacher taught me for only two days but gave me what my other teachers didn't for 20 years, and for the first time in my life i felt what it was like to love someone who has made an impact on you

May Allah have Mercy on Akram and Eedris (even though they are alive)

As Salaamu Alaikum

Subhanallah thats so true.We should aim to make every glance a positive one insha Allah.It's part of the Sunnah as well..

May Allah reward all those who helped us in whatever way along this tricky path of Life..Ameen

Was Salaam
