A Muslim scholar and a MBA graduate

A MBA graduate and a Muslim scholar went together for a dawah trip.

At nightfall they, after reading their Esha salaah, they set up their tent ,and fell asleep.

          Some hours later, the Muslim scholar wakes his MBA friend and says

"Look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

The MBA replies, "I see millions of stars."

         The Muslim scholar asks, "What does that tell you?"

    The MBA ponders for a minute.

          "Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies

          and potentially billions of planets.

                    Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three.

          Theologically, it's evident that Allah our Lord is All-Powerful and

          we are small and insignificant.

          Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.

What does it tell you?"


The Muslim scholar is quiet for a moment and then recites the dua:

inalillahe wa inna elayhe rajeun [o Allah we belong and unto Him shall we return](dua to be read when someone suffers any loss)

The Muslim scholar then says:

"Practically speaking...Someone has stolen our tent."

......Sometimes our education stands as a barrier to common sense!
