Stinginess

on: 05/02/2015

Once a visitor came to a stingy man while there was a loaf of bread and a bowl of honey in front  of him. The stingy man took away the bread and intended to take away the honey but he thought that the visitor would not eat the honey without the bread. So he said to the visitor, “Do you think you’ll eat the honey without the bread?” The visitor replied, “Yes,” and he started to partake one spoon of honey after another. The stingy man said, “By Allah, my brother! Don’t you know that a lot  of honey can burn the heart.” The visitor replied, “You are right, but not my heart, your heart.”.  

Moral: Stinginess is a disgraceful trait.
