Why Do Women Cry?

A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?"

"Because I need to" she said.

"I don't understand," he said.

His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will."

Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry
for no reason?"

"All women cry for no reason," his dad answered carelessly.

The little boy, still wondering why women cry, finally asked the
old wise shaikh (scholar). "He surely knows the answer", he
thought. "Ya Shaikh! Why do women cry so easily?"

The Shaikh answered: "When Allah made the woman she had to be made
so special. He made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight
of the world, yet gentle enough to give comfort. He gave her an
inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that comes
from her children. He gave her a hardness that allows her to keep
going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family
through sickness and fatigue without complaining. He gave her the
sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances,
even when her child hurts her very badly. He gave her strength to
carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib
to protect his heart. He gave her wisdom to know that a good
husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and
her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly. And lastly, He gave
her a tear. This is hers and only hers exclusively to use whenever
she needs it. She needs no reason, no explanation, its hers."

"You see my son, the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she
wears, the beauty of her face, or the way she combs her hair. The
beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the
doorway to her heart - the place where love resides."

The little boy got the answer and never asked the question again.
