The King and His Four Wives


Read This Carefully.


Once upon a time there was a rich King who had four wives. He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to the finest of delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best.  He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her off to neighboring kingdoms. However, he

feared that one day she would leave him for another.  He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confidant, and was always kind, considerate and patient with him.

Whenever the King faced a problem, he could confide in her, and she would help him get through the difficult times.


The King's 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and kingdom. However, he did not love the first wife.

Although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her! One day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short. He thought of his luxurious life and wondered, "I ! now have four wives with me, but when I die, I'll be all alone."Thus, he asked the 4th wife, "I have loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?"

"No way!", replied the 4th wife, and she walked away without another word. Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.

The sad King then asked the 3rd wife, "I have loved you all my life. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?"

"No!", replied the 3rd wife. "Life is too good! When you die, I'm going to remarry!" His heart sank and turned cold.

He then asked the 2nd wife, "I have always turned to you for help and you've always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?"

"I'm sorry, I can't help you out this time!", replied the 2nd wife. "At the very most, I can only send you to your grave." Her answer came like a bolt of lightning, and the King was devastated. Then a voice called out: "I'll leave with you and follow you no matter where you go." The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was so skinny as she suffered from malnutrition and neglect. Greatly grieved, the King said, "I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!"


In truth, we all have 4 wives in our lives: Our 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it will leave us when we die. Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will all go to others. Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave. And our 1st wife is our Soul. Often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the

world. However, our Soul is the only thing that will follow us wherever we go.

Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of us that will follow us to the throne of God and continue with us throughout Eternity.


When the world pushes you to your knees.....You're in the perfect position to pray.



Ya Allah


Today, upon a bus,

I saw a girl with golden hair.

and wished I was as fair.

When suddenly she rose to leave,

I saw her hobble down the aisle.

She had one leg and wore a crutch.

But as she passed, a smile.

Ya Allah, forgive me when I whine.

I have 2 legs, the world is mine.



I stopped to buy some candy.

The lad who sold it had such charm.

I talked with him,

he seemed so glad.

If I were late, it'd do no harm.

And as I left, he said to me,

"I thank you, you've been so kind.

It's nice to talk with folks like you.

You see," he said,

"I'm blind."

Ya Allah, forgive me when I whine.

I have 2 eyes, the world is mine.


Later, while walking down the street,

I saw a child with eyes of blue.

He stood and watched the others play.

He did not know what to do.

I stopped a moment and then I said,

"Why don't you join the others, dear?"

He looked ahead without

a word; and then I knew,

he wouldn't hear.

Ya Allah, forgive me when I whine.

I have 2 ears, the world is mine.


With feet to take me where I'd go.

With eyes to see the sunset's glow.

With ears to hear what I'd know.

Ya Allah, forgive me when I whine.

I've been blessed indeed,

the world is mine.





(Read even if you're busy)


Satan called a worldwide convention of demons. In his opening address he said,


"We can't keep Muslims from going to Mosque."


"We can't keep them from reading their Quran and knowing the truth."


"We can't even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their Allah and his messenger Muhammad."


"Once they gain that connection with Allah, our power over them is broken."


"So let them go to their Mosques; let them have their covered dish dinners, BUT steal their time, so they don't have time to develop a relationship with Allah and his messenger Muhammad."


"This is what I want you to do," said the devil:


"Distract them from gaining hold of their Allah and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!"


"How shall we do this?" his demons shouted.


"Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds," he answered.


"Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow."


"Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work 6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty lifestyles."


"Keep them from spending time with their children."


"As their families fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of work!"


"Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still, small voice."


"Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they drive." "To keep the TV, VCR, CDs and their PCs going constantly in their home and see to it that every store and restaurant in the world plays music constantly."


"This will jam their minds and break that union with Allah and his messenger Muhammad."


"Fill the coffee tables with magazines and newspapers."


"Pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day."


"Invade their driving moments with billboards."


"Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogs, sweepstakes, and every kind of newsletter and promotional offering free products, services and false hopes."


"Keep skinny, beautiful models on the magazines and TV so their husbands will believe that outward beauty is what's important, and they'll become dissatisfied with their wives. "


"Keep the wives too tired to love their husbands at night."


Give them headaches too!


"If they don't give their husbands the love they need, they will begin to look elsewhere."


"That will fragment their families quickly!"


"Give them story books to distract them from teaching their children the real meaning of Salat."


"Keep them too busy to go out in nature and reflect on Allah's creation. Send them to amusement parks, sporting events, plays, concerts, and movies instead. "Keep them busy, busy, busy!"


"And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences."


"Crowd their lives with so many good causes they have no time to seek power from Allah."


"Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their health and family for the good of the cause."


"It will work!" "It will work!" 


It was quite a plan!


The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Muslims everywhere to get busier and more rushed, going here and there.


Having little time for their Allah or their families.


Having no time to tell others about the power of Allah and his messenger Muhammad to change lives.


I guess the question is, has the devil been successful in his schemes?


You be the judge!!!!!


Does "BUSY" mean:







Please pass this on, if you aren't too BUSY!


I don't think I know 10 people who would admit they love Allah. Do You Love Him?
