A good story to read 🙂

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly. So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined our car and sent us to the hospital!’ This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you. Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets. The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so…..
‘Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don’t.’


Narrated ‘Aisyah (the wife of the Prophet) Allah’s Apostle said, “No calamity befalls a Muslim but that Allah expiates some of his sins because of it, even though it were the prick he receives from a thorn.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri and Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

Narrated Kab: The Prophet said, “The example of a believer is that of a fresh tender plant, which the wind bends It sometimes and some other time it makes it straight. And the example of a hypocrite is that of a pine tree which keeps straight till once it is uprooted suddenly.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

    I’m agree with aimanMH, my thought, almost everything has a border. Most of the unacceptable and unpredictable scene, happen when you come across the border. Thought of Islam has mentioned how the border be a vital among Muslim. For instant, you must respect you parent as long as in Islam axis. Islam is the border in this case. Therefore, patient of course has a limit, when you got attacked, is a must for you to fight back. How you “fight back”?, there come a principle of tolerance. The way you express, in this context is should be discuss. Not why he/she fight back.

    A famous story about Rasullah and Jewish lady, give a different reflections. Most prevalent whose thought Rasullah didn’t react to the situation. There is no such thing, stone your self, without “fight back”. How Rasullah response to the situation, is the fight back action.

    Be dumper, or dumped, it is the cycle of life. That the way how the world go on. In fact, to be a dumper easier than to be dumped. but its okey for me. Impromptu reaction-anger and yelling, smile and wise-as a normal human being, okey for a certain level. If higher than that, you will see the consequences.
