At the height of a political corruption trial, the prosecuting attorney attacked a witness.
“Isn’t it true,” he bellowed, “that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?”
The witness stared out the window, as though he hadn’t heard the question.
“Isn’t it true that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?” the lawyer repeated.
The witness still did not respond.
Finally, the judge leaned over and said, “Sir, please answer the question.”
“Oh,” the startled witness said, “I thought he was talking to you.”
Quote Of The Day: Khalid ibn Sa’d reported: We went out while Ghalib ibn Abjar was with us. He became sick on the way and he was still sick when we arrived in Medina. Ibn Abi Atiq came to visit him and he said to us, “Treat him with blackseed. Take five or seven seeds and crush them, and put the mixture in both nostrils, for Aisha has narrated to me that she heard the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, say: This blackseed is healing for all diseases except poison.” Aisha said, “What is poison?” He said, “Death.” [Sahih Bukhari, Book 71, Number 591]
