A sage presented a prince with a set of three small dolls. The prince was not amused.Reply
“Am I a girl that u give me dolls?” he asked.
“This is a gift for a future king,” said the man. “If u look carefully, u’ll see a hole in the ear of each doll.”
The sage handed him a piece of string.
“Pass it through each doll,” he said.
Intrigued, the prince picked up the first doll & put the string into the ear.
It came out from the other ear.
“This is one type of person,” said the man. “Whatever u tell him, comes out from the other ear. He doesn’t retain anything.”
The prince put the string into the 2nd doll. It came out from the mouth.
“This is the 2nd type of person,” said the man. “Whatever u tell him, he tells everybody else.”
The prince picked up the 3rd doll & repeated the process. The string did not reappear from anywhere else.
“This is the 3rd type of person,” said the man. “Whatever u tell him is locked up within him. It never comes out.”
“What is the best type of person?” asked the prince.
The man handed him a 4th doll, in answer.
When the prince put the string into the doll, it came out from the other ear.
“Do it again,” said the sage. The prince repeated the process. This time the string came out from the mouth. When he put the string in a 3rd time, it did not come
out at all.
“This is the best type of person,” said the sage. “ A man must know when not to listen, when to remain silent & when to speak out. Aиϑ when he's developed these skills he will be trustworthy & wise "
Our beloved Rasulullah sallallaahu alayhi wasallam said in a famous hadith;
Whoever believes in Allah & the Last Day let him speak good or remain silent.”
[Bukhari & Muslim]
