He smiled at a sorrowful stranger.
The smile seemed to make him feel better.

 

The stranger remembered past kindness of a friend
And wrote him a thank you letter.
 
The friend was so pleased with the thank you
That he left a large tip after lunch.
 
The waiter, surprised by the size of the tip,
Gave part to a man on the street.
 
The man on the street was grateful;
For two days he'd had nothing to eat.
 
After he finished his dinner,
He left for his small dingy room.
 
He didn't know at that moment
that he might be facing his doom.
 
On the way he picked up a shivering puppy
And took him home to get warm.
 
The puppy was very grateful
To be in out of the storm.
 
That night the house caught on fire.
The puppy barked the alarm.
 
He barked till he woke the whole household
And saved everybody from harm.
 
One of the boys that he rescued
grew up to be Upright President.
 
All this because of a simple smile
That hadn't cost a cent.
 
...and THAT is the power of a smile!  So smile away :)
 
The Messenger of Allah Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:"To smile in the company of your brother is charity. " (Bukhari)
 
 
Be part of Operation Smile...its Highly contagious!!! Smile Smile

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: ďAll the descendants of Adam are sinners, and the best of sinners are those who repent."
