Quotable Quotes

After three days without reading, talk becomes flavourless - Chinese proverb

Humour Without Malice

A bedouin joined the Imam for Fajar Salah. He had an appointment after the prayer but the Imam decided to recite Surah Baqarah (The Cow). As a result of the length of this Surah, the bedouin was delayed and missed his appointment. The next day he arrived early and joined the Imam again, who this time began to recite Surah Feel (The Elephant). As soon as the bedouin heard the word Feel (Elephant), completely angry, the bedouin broke his Salah and left the mosque immediately, shouting "Yesterday you read The Cow and took almost an hour to finish; today you are reciting The Elephant, you will probably finish at midnight."
