It was the time of azan. Muhammad The Last Prophet heard the call of prayer. He rose to his feet while answering the Muezza, and looked for his robe. There was his robe, a bit shabby yet clean. And there was Muezza, his tabby cat, snoozing on the sleeve of his robe, in the tranquility of a cat’s dream. Looking at Muezzim in a calm deep sleep, one would wonder what a cat dreams about. Is it about the chasing mice or being chased by giant mice?. Muezza wasn’t smiling but seemed so. Most cats are like that. And that makes one amused looking at that adorable creature. It’s a soothing feeling.
Muhammad(PBUH) smiled, maybe this is the problem, he thought. He needed the robe; the jamaah is waiting for him at mosque, but didn’t want to wake Muezza. There’s only one way. He looked for a pair of scissors. Muhammad (PBUH) slowly cut off the sleeve of his robe. Slowly and gently, while making Muezza isn’t disturbed by his action. Muhammad (PBUH) slowly pickup his robe and wore it. He looked at Muezza who was still snoozing and he smiled. He is a brave fighter, a simple man and the Prophet Muhammad pray solat wear robe that have only one sleeve. But it’s alright, as long as Muezza enjoys sleeping on another sleeve.
