There were three people. And they were on a journey. And they took provisions for their journey. But what happened is, they didn't have a GPS like we have today, Sat Nav TomTom. Right Google Maps. So they were in the forest traversing, and they became lost, they became lost. So because they became lost, this took a couple more days from their plan journey. And as a result, the provisions that they had with them became depleted, except a bowl of milk, a bowl of milk. So now they were in a dilemma with three people one bowl of milk, how on earth are we going to distribute this milk between us? So one of them was very clever. He said, You know what, I haven't an idea. They said,

00:01:02--> 00:01:06

what he says, what we'll do is we'll place the bowl of milk on a high tree.

00:01:08--> 00:01:41

So no wild animal can drink it. And we'll all go to sleep. And when we wake up in the morning, we will tell each other about the dream, which we had. And the person who has the best dream gets the bowl of milk. How's that? They said, perfect. That sounds doable. It's conducive, right? So this is what they did. And they went to sleep.

So they asked the first person, What did you dream about? Now, obviously, he didn't dream about anything. But he has a mind that can imagine. So he said, for the sake of the bowl of milk. He said, You know what? I had an amazing dream. And amazing dream. They said, What was this dream about? He says, I dreamt I was on the third heaven.

00:02:05--> 00:02:22

Third, Heaven, wow. And he started describing the third heaven, and how he met Prophet Joseph Yusuf Alayhi. Salam, and how handsome he was, and everything. He could conjure up everything he could describe. He described, he used his abilities to imagine, for the sake of his stomach.

00:02:24--> 00:02:53

He needed the bowl of milk. So the other two, they were starting to look despondent. They said, Subhanallah this was this is a tough one. This is a tough one. So they went to travel. And number two, What did you dream about? He says, traveling number one, you had an amazing dream. But sorry to say, My dream was better. Obviously, he didn't dream anything as well. So they said, what was your dream about? He says, which heaven were you on? said the third heaven. He goes me I was on the fifth heaven.

00:02:54--> 00:03:10

How is on the fifth heaven. And we know that the fifth Heaven is more beautiful than the third heaven. So what did he do? He bettered the description of the third heaven and shovel a number one looked down despondent as he saw the bowl of milk evaporating.
