Guests brings beautiful blessings.








Ten guests are reported to have come to Abdallah Ibn mubarak's house one day when he had nothing to lay before guests.He did, however, have a horse. with its help he had been wont to fight the infidels and perform the pilgrimage in alternate years. He killed the horse and laid it before his guests. 'you had nothing', said his wife, 'except this horse; why have you killed it?', Abdallah Ibn mubarak immediately went in to the house, carried out all the articles and garments which were that wife's property from her dowry, handed them to her and pronounced her to be divorced. 'I do not need that woman,' he declared, 'because she hates guests.'

Not long afterwards, a man arrived and said, 'O Imam  of the muslims, I have a daughter whose mother has died. Every day this girl tears her clothes and laments. she will come presently for a consultation with you. Give her a word of advice which perhaps may soothe her heart.' 


Abdallah Ibn mubarak said something to her accordingly. when the girl returned home, she said, 'O Father, I have repented, hence forward I shall not vex god on high but I have one request to make of you.' 'What is it?' her father asked. 'You have been saying', she replied, 'that my hand is sought by possessors of worldly wealth.


Take heed! To no man shall you give my hand, unless it be to' Abdallah Ibn mubarak for if we possess worldly wealth, he possesses both religion and worldly wealth.' He therefore gave his daughter (in marriage) to' Abdallah Ibn mubarak, to whom he also sent a large quantity of dinars and ten horses. 

One night' Abdallah ibn mubarak dreamt that somebody was saying to him: 'If you have divorced an old wife for our sake, we have given you a young wife to help you understand that no person's action is overlooked in our (assessment) and that no person suffers loss on our account.'

A visitor comes with ten blessings, eats one, and leaves nine~ A kurdish proverb.

umm.. is this supposed to be a good thing, divorce is discouraged in islam unless the two cant find a solution at all right? so how is it right for him to divorce his wife for asking a question.

This incident may or may not be true for i do not have an authenticity for it.I just read it somewhere and thought to post it here.

yea i agree among all halal things, divorce is the most disliked ones and i dont think it is right for him to divorce her for such question, if we assume this incident to be true.

Allah knows best.
