Dearly Departed

A man placed some flowers on the grave of his dearly departed mother and started back toward his car when his attention was diverted to another man kneeling at a grave. 

The man seemed to be praying with profound intensity and kept repeating, “Why did you have to die? Why did you have to die?” 

The first man approached him and said, “Sir, I don't wish to interfere with your private grief, but this demonstration of pain is more than I've ever seen before. For whom do you mourn so deeply? A child? A parent?” 

The mourner took a moment to collect himself, then replied, “My wife's first husband.”

Quote Of The Day:  Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Allah will say: O Adam! Adam will reply: I am at Your service. Allah will say: Bring out the people of the Hellfire. Adam will say: Who are the people of the Hellfire? Allah will say: They are nine hundred and ninety-nine of every thousand. At that time, the hair of children will turn gray and every pregnant woman will drop her load and you will see people in a state of drunkness, although they are not intoxicated, for the punishment of Allah is severe.” This news greatly distressed the companions and they said, “O Messenger of Allah, who is the one man who will be saved?” He said, “The good news is that the one thousand will be from the nations of Gog and Magog and the one will be from your nation.” Then he said, “By the one in whose hand is my soul, I hope you will be a third of the people of Paradise.” Then we praised Allah and exalted Him, and he said, “By the one in whose hand if my soul, I hope you will be half of the people of Paradise. Verily, your example is that of a white hair on the skin of a black ox, or  a hairless spot on the leg of a donkey.”  [Sahih Bukhari, Book 76, Number 537, Sahih]
