Once a group of Muslims were on their travels propagating Islam in Edinburgh, Scotland. The Imam who was leading the prayer in a public place, after completing it, was met by a few girls. One of the girls asked, "Do you know English?" The young man who led the prayer said, "I do". She said, "What is this that you have done?" The young man replied, "We have performed worship".
The girl said, "But today isn’t Sunday". The young man said, "We do this 5 times a day". The girl said, "That’s a lot". The young man explained that if the blessings of Allah are kept in view, this is very little. It isn’t hardship, but love for Allah and a pleasure to do.
Then the girl extended her hand to bid farewell and the young man said, "Forgive me for my hand cannot touch you". She asked him why not. He said, "This is my wife’s trust". The girl collapsed to the ground. With tears in her eyes, she said, "How blessed is that wife who has such a husband, O that the men in Europe would be like this!" `
