(3) Narrated Anas: Allah's Apostle I was delivering the Khutba (sermon) on a Friday when the people stood up, shouted and said, 'O Allah's Apostle! There is no rain (drought), the trees have dried and the livestock are destroyed; Please pray to Allah for rain.' So Allah's Apostle said twice, 'O Allah! Bless us with rain.' By Allah, there was no trace of cloud in the sky and suddenly the sky became overcast with clouds and it started raining. The Prophet came down the pulpit and offered the prayer. When he came back from the prayer (to his house) it was raining and it rained continuously till the next Friday. When the Prophet started delivering the Friday Khutba (sermon), the people started shouting and said to him, 'The houses have collapsed and the roads are cut off; so please pray to Allah to withhold the rain.' So the Prophet smiled and said, 'O Allah! Round about us and not on us.' So the sky became clear over Medina but it kept on raining over the outskirts (of Medina) !
and not
a single drop of rain fell over Median. I looked towards the sky which was as bright and clear as a crown. (Book #17, Hadith #134) Bukhari

(9) Narrated Abu Huraira: Once the Prophet was narrating (a story), while a bedouin was sitting with him. 'One of the inhabitants of Paradise will ask Allah to allow him to cultivate the land. Allah will ask him, 'Are you not living in the pleasures you like?' He will say, 'Yes, but I like to cultivate the land.' ' The Prophet added, 'When the man (will be permitted he) will sow the seeds and the plants will grow up and get ripe, ready for reaping and so on till it will be as huge as mountains within a wink. Allah will then say to him, 'O son of Adam! Take here you are, gather (the yield); nothing satisfies you.' ' On that, the bedouin said, 'The man must be either from Quraish (i.e. an emigrant) or an Ansari, for they are farmers, whereas we are not farmers.' The Prophet smiled (at this). (Book #39, Hadith #538)

(5) Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab : When 'Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul died, Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) was called upon to offer his funeral prayer. When Allah's Apostle stood up to offer the prayer, I got up quickly and said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Are you going to pray for Ibn Ubai and he said so and so on such and such occasions?' And started mentioning all that he had said. Allah's Apostle smiled and said, 'O 'Umar! Go away from me.' When I talked too much he said, 'I have been given the choice and so I have chosen (to offer the prayer). Had I known that he would be forgiven by asking for Allah's forgiveness for more than seventy times, surely I would have done so.' ('Umar added): Allah's Apostle offered his funeral prayer and returned and after a short while the two verses of Surat Bara' were revealed: i.e. 'And never (O Muhammad) pray for any of them who dies . . . (to the end of the verse) rebellion (9.84)' -- ('Umar added), 'Later I astonished at my daring before Allah's !
on that day. And Allah and His Apostle know better.' (Book #23, Hadith #447)

(57) Narrated Abu Huraira: Once the Prophet was preaching while a bedouin was sitting there. The Prophet said, 'A man from among the people of Paradise will request Allah to allow him to cultivate the land Allah will say to him, 'Haven't you got whatever you desire?' He will reply, 'yes, but I like to cultivate the land (Allah will permit him and) he will sow the seeds, and within seconds the plants will grow and ripen and (the yield) will be harvested and piled in heaps like mountains. On that Allah will say (to him), 'Take, here you are, O son of Adam, for nothing satisfies you.' 'On that the bedouin said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Such man must be either from Quraish or from Ansar, for they are farmers while we are not.' On that Allah's Apostle smiled . (Book #93, Hadith #610) All Bukhari

may Allah keep us searching for the good in others and looking over or helping their faults with hikmah, so that we can often be smiling with our hearts clean of others, and satisfied and content..... such a simple and beautiful form of charity..... now a days u can tell if the smile is real or fake, but with a clean heart of others, its simple to give real smiles to everyone, which sets such a pleasing mood.
