A brother like that

Shuaib received an automobile from his brother as an Eid present. On Eid day when Shuaib came out of his house, a sreet urchin was walking around the shiny new car, admiring it. "Is  this your car, Uncle?" he asked. Shuab nodded. "My brother gave it to me for Eid." The boy was astounded.

"You mean your brother gave it to you and it didn't cost you nothing? Boy, I wish..." He hesitated. Of course Shuaib knew what he was going to wish for. He was going to wish he had a brother like that. But what the lad said jarred Shuaib all the way down to his heels. "I wish," the boy went on , "that I could be a brother like that." Shuaib looked at the boy in astonishment, then impulsively he added, "Would you like to take a ride in my automobile?" "Oh yes, I'd love that."

After a short ride, the boy turned and with his eyes aglow, said, "Uncle,would you mind driving in front of my house?" Shuaib smiled a little. He thought he knew what the lad wanted. He wanted to show his neighbors that he could ride home in a big automobile. But Shuaib was wrong again. "Will you stop where those two steps are?" the boy asked. He ran up the steps. Then in a little while Shuaib heard him coming back, but he was not coming fast. He was carrying his little crippled brother. He sat him down on the bottom step, then sort of squeezed up against him and pointed to the car.

"There it is,little brother, just like I told you upstairs. His brother gave it to him for Eid and it didn't cost him a penny. And some day I'm gonna give you one just like it...then you can see for yourself  all the pretty things in the Shop windows that I've been trying to tell you about."

Shuaib got out and lifted the boy to the front seat of his car.The shining-eyed older brother climbed in beside him and the three of them began a memorable ride. That Eid, Shuaib learned what the RasulAllah (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) meant when he had said: "love for your brother what you love for yourself".

Adab berbicara anjuran Rasulullah SAW

1. Semua pembicaraan haruslah untuk kebaikan.
"Barangsiapa yang beriman pada Allah dan hari akhir maka hendaklah berkata baik atau lebih baik diam." (HR Bukhari Muslim)

2. Berbicara haruslah benar dan jelas.
"Bahawasanya perkataan Rasulullah SAW itu selalu jelas sehingga bisa difahami oleh semua yang mendengar." (HR Abu daud)

3. Seimbang dan elakkan unsur berlagak dalam berbicara.
"Sesungguhnya orang yang paling aku benci dan paling jauh daripadaku nanti di hari Kiamat ialah orang yang banyak bercakap dan berlagak dalam berbicara."
Maka dikatakan : Wahai Rasulullah kami telah mengetahui arti ats-tsartsarun dan mutasyaddiqun, lalu apa makna al-mutafayhiqun?
Maka jawab nabi SAW: "Orang-orang yang sombong." (HR Tirmidzi dan dihasankannya)

4. Menghindari banyak berbicara,kerana khuatir membosankan orang yang mendengar.
Adalah Ibnu Mas'ud ra senantiasa mengajari kami setiap hari Khamis,
maka berkata seorang lelaki: Wahai Abu Abdur Rahman (gelaran Ibnu Mas'ud)! Seandainya anda mahu mengajari kami setiap hari?
maka jawab Ibnu Mas'ud : Sesungguhnya tidak ada yang menghalangiku memenuhi keinginanmu, hanya aku khuatir membosankan kalian, kerana aku pun pernah meminta yang demikian pada nabi SAW dan beliau menjawab khuatir membosankan kami (HR Muttafaq 'alaih)

5. Mengulangi kata-kata yang penting jika diperlukan.
Daripada Anas r.a bahawa adalah nabi SAW jika berbicara maka beliau SAW mengulanginya tiga kali sehingga semua yang mendengarkannya menjadi faham, dan apabila beliau SAW mendatangi rumah seseorang maka beliau SAW pun mengucapkan salam tiga kali.(HR Bukhari)

6. Menghindari mengucapkan perkara-perkara yang mendatangkan dosa.
"Sesungguhnya seorang hamba mengucapkan satu kata yang diredai Allah SWT yang dia tidak mengira yang akan mendapatkan demikian sehingga dicatat oleh Allah keredaan-Nya bagi orang tersebut sampai nanti hari Kiamat. Dan seorang lelaki mengucapkan satu kata yang dimurkai Allah yang tidak dikiranya akan demikian,maka Allah mencatatnya yang demikian itu sampai hari Kiamat." (HR Tirmidzi dan ia berkata hadits hasan shahih: juga diriwayatkan oleh Ibnu Majah).
