A story about a Muslim man and a Jew appeared in a famous magazine \u2018Al-Mujtama\u2019 published from Kuwait. The story says there was a Pakistani Muslim in London who was a carpenter by occupation. A Jew gave him the contract of undertaking furnishing work and decoration of his house. The Jew clearly told the Muslim man that the work should be completed by 4th of next month as there was an event to be held. The Muslim carpenter agreed but he could not complete the work within the stipulated time. The Jew reminded him repeatedly but in vain until the deadline arrived. Showing patience the Jew organised the event at another place and remained silent.\n\n\n\nAfter two months the Muslim artisan came to the Jew and\ninformed him about the completion of work and at the same time asked for his payments.\n\n\n\nJew decided to teach the carpenter a lesson. So he sent him\nback saying he will make the payment the next day. Thus he went on delaying the\npayment until two months passed and the Muslim man could not get his due amount.\n\n\n\n\nDejected, he went to a Rabbi (Jew cleric) whom the Jew used\nto visit and complained to him.\n\n\n\nThe Rabbi comforted the Muslim and wrote something on a piece\nof paper put it in a sealed envelope and asked the man to give to Jew. On reading\nthis he will give you your money said the Rabbi.\n\n\n\nAs soon as the Jew read the chit of his Rabbi he immediately\ngave the due amount to the Muslim man and apologised him. He wrote \u2018thank you\u2019\nto his Rabbi on the same chit and gave it back to the Muslim man to handover it\nto the Rabbi.\n\n\n\nThe Muslim man was very curious to know how come the Jew who\ndelayed his payment for two months paid him immediately after reading the chit\nof his Rabbi. Out of curiosity, he opened the chit and started reading. \n\n\n\nIt read: \u2018Since when have you developed the habit of Muslim?\nThe community which develops the bad habit of not fulfilling the commitments or\ngoing back on the words faces degeneration and becomes subjugated. It neither gets\npower nor rule. Do you also want to end your respect, power, governance and domination?\u2019\n\n\n\nThe words of the Rabbi worked as a hammer for the Muslim man.\nHe was stunned. But he could do nothing but to lament over himself and people\nof his community.
