"Between Stimulus and response, we have the freedom to response" Stephen R. Covey
It was a sports stadium. Eight children were standing on the track to participate in a running event.
With the bang of the sound of toy pistol, all eight girls started running. One of the smaller girls fell down, she started crying. When the other seven girls heard the little girl cry they stopped running, stood for while and turn back. One among them bent down, picked her up and kissed her gently, and enquired as to how she was... they then lifted the girl pacifying her. Two of them hold her while all seven joined hands together and walked together towards the winning post...there was a pin drop silence at the spectator's stand. Offiicials were shocked, slow claps multiplied to thousands as the spectators stood up in appreciation. Many eyes were filled with tears.
The sport event was conducted by "National Institute Of Mental Health" Hyderabad India, All these special girls were spastic children, Yes they were mentally challenged.
What did they teach the World?
Team work? Humanity? Equality among all??
NO...They taught..
'Successful people help others who are slow in learning, so that they are not left behind!'

Thank you DR. Shabbir Ahmed! because this is exactly what you are doing! Educating others about the true teachings of the 'Quran'
and you don't even let us know that in this process of learning most of us are legging how far behind, . I thank you Sir!
