A pound of butter

✨A POUND OF BUTTER

✨There was a farmer who sold a pound of butter to the baker. One day the baker decided to weigh the butter to see if he was getting a pound & he found that he was not.

✨This angered him so he took the farmer to court. The judge asked the farmer if he was using any measure. The farmer replied, "Your Honor, I am primitive. I don't have a proper measure, but I do have a scale."
The judge asked, "Then how do you weigh the butter?"
The farmer replied "Your Honor, long before the baker started buying butter from me, I have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Every day when the baker brings the bread, I put it on the scale & give him the same weight in butter. If anyone is to be blamed, it is the baker."

✨Moral of the story....
We get back in life what we give to others. Whenever you take an action, ask yourself this question: Am I giving fair value for the wages or money I hope to make? Honesty &  dishonesty become a habit. Some people practice dishonesty & can lie with a straight face. Others lie so much that they don't even know what the truth is anymore. But the only people they are deceiving & fooling ultimately, are themselves.
     
✨The Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “A truthful and honest trader will be a companion of the prophets, the righteous and the martyrs on the Day of Judgement.” [Tirmidhi]
   
✨Ya Allah, lift my heart, relieve my burdens, and make me of those who put their full trust in You for all of their affairs.

✨Ya Rabb, just like You turn day into night... Turn the darkness in every Muslim's life in to a radiant light."

آمِيْن ثُمَّ آمين يا رب العالمين  يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ يَا ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ  يَامَالِكُ الْمَلِكُ ߒ݀￿
