Someone mentioned these too me today, I can't remember them all so maybe some brothers/sisters inshallah could fill in the gaps.

What has one but no two?

Allah subhana wa t'ala

What is two but not three?

Day and Night

What is three but not four?

The people of the cave

What is/has four but no five?

____________ (I forgot)

What is 5 but not 6?

Salah

What is 6 but not 7?

___________

What is 7 but not 8?

7 Heavens

What is 8 but not 9?

____________

What is 9 but not 10?

____________

There are meant to be 100 of these. Maybe someone knows them.

No offence, but they're a bit of a giveaway. For example, 'What is 5 but not 6' obviously means there's five of them thus making the 6 redundant, and in the Quranic context it's evidently salah.

But um, nice post. :)

I think it's emphasis on 5 but NEVER 6.

So, saying breakfast is once but never twice would be wrong, because some people (i.e. me) have two breakfasts.

I was just curious if anyone else had heard these or knew the remaining 81 I didn't list.

I understand that. Still, it's a little bit formulaic. Look, I'll make one:

What is 99, but not 100?

-The names of Allah

What is two, but not three?

-My eyes

What is one, but not two?

-My nose

:p

Maybe if we can mix 'em up a bit it'll be more entertaining. :)
