Love Story of Ralph and Edna

Love Story of Ralph and Edna
Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital.
One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out.
When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital as she now considered her to be mentally stable. When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the  person you love. I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.
The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.'
Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?'
Happy Mental Health day!
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
By Him in Whose Hand Muhammad's (peace be upon him) soul is, if you know that which I know, you would weep much and laugh little."
(Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.632  Narrated by Abu Huraira)
Something to  ponder upon .........
Man has been created for a serious mission &  he must realizes the importance of the purpose of life why Allah swt has created him...One would really weep rather than laugh.
The perfect  way of life - Islam guides the believers to use their allocation of time in this world to strive utmost & sincerely work hard to attain The Pleasure of Allah (swt) and keep fearing the severe and inevitable day of Judgement where he will not have the time to laugh but weep for the acounting of the deeds he had done in this transit life.
