Respect and Good Manners

Once upon a time a there was an old Bedouin man that lived all alone in the desert.
He wasn’t a very nice or friendly man and, being new to Islam, he knew very little about it.

One day he was feeling a little lonely and decided he would go and visit Medina.
Mumbling to himself he got onto his camel and off he went to the holy city.
When he got to Medina the old man visited a few homes of people he knew.
One of the homes was of the two brothers Sayyedina, Hussain and Hassan who at the time were young boys.

When it was time for prayers the grumpy old man started to do wudu as the two young boys watched him curiously.
After a few more minutes Hussain and Hassan realised that the old Bedouin man didn’t really know how to perform wudu, and they knew it had to be done right for praying.
This put the two boys in an awkward situation as they weren’t sure how to correct him without insulting or offending the grumpy old man.

After thinking for a few minutes both Hussain and Hassan smiled and came up with a plan.
They looked at each other and agreed that it would be good to teach the old man how to perform wudu without hurting his feelings or embarrassing him.
They put some water in a big jug and asked the old man to watch how they did their wudu because they weren’t sure if they were doing wudu the right way.
At first the old man didn’t really want to watch them because he had finished his wudu but he had done wudu the wrong way.
Then the boys said to him you are older and wiser than us and we respect you and we really need your help to see if we are doing wudu properly because we don’t want to make any mistakes with our wudu.
So the old man agreed to watch them.

As Hussain and Hassan performed their wudu the old man watched with great interest and attention.
After the boys had finished, he looked at the boys and smiled at them the grumpy old man did not smile that often and he said to the boys, “You have done your wudu correctly.”
