Wayfarer's Rest

Some assorted ramblings and occasional thoughts from Talib al-Habib. Updated randomly and irregularly (if at all). Talib takes no responsiblity for anything that he may write, as responsiblity implies capacity, and capacity implies a sound mind...

A maths problem


my daughter Noor (7) chirps up with a comment during math's homework:

'Islam is like a math's problem. Allah is the answer, Rasulullah (s) is the example. To get to the answer, you have to do one step at a time, following the example. It's easy if you do it that way, but if you don't, you get the answer wrong.'


alhamdu lillah. Clearly takes after her mother... :)

A salaamu aleikum Brother,

Mashallah! How wonderful. We can learn so much from children. I can't wait to share this 'solution' with my Sunday school students. In fact I'll add it to my list of favourite quotes.

Jazak Allahu Khairan for passing it on.

(hope you don't mind if I link to hit here)

Wa salaamu aleikum
