A Motivational Eid Story-The Caliph and the New Clothes
The little boy came running to his mother crying with a request. “Jarir and Mughiz have both got new clothes for Eid. Can I have some new clothes as well?” The mother picked him up and wiped his tears.
Our beloved Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, despite his vast knowledge and wisdom, was instructed by Allah Ta’ala to consult with his noble Sahaabah (Radiyallahu anhum) (companions) and make mashwarah with them regarding to important issues as is indicated in the above aayah.
If Nabi B, the best of all mankind and the pride of the creation of Allah Ta’ala, was commanded to consult with others, how much more important is it for us to also consult with each other in our day to day issues.
