He Who Makes No Mistakes, Makes Nothing


السلام  عليكم  ورحمة  الله  وبركاته

بارك  الله  فيكم

Arabic proverb2

Just my poor thought!

How many mistakes we have done in our life?
How often we do mistakes?
Are we afraid to do the mistakes?
Can we get lessons from the mistakes?

Those are simple questions about mistakes. I often hear by my ears, the people’s minds in doing something. They often say, “Do your job correctly! Make perfect in your work! Avoid the mistakes in your job!” I also often hear a few parents say and ask to their children, “Why do you do this mistake? Be a nice son! Don’t be naughty! Do it, well! You must get 100 for your exams!” and so on.
Whereas many inventors invented their inventions by accidentally and coming from their mistakes. I will share a few of them:

1. Thomas Alva Edison
If he didn’t do his experiment till 1000 times, the world would be in the darkness. 😀
I won’t rewrite his bioghraphy here, because I believe in you, you have known about him.
His quote, “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety – nine percent perspiration.”
2. Ruth Wakefield
She accidentally invented “Chocolate chip cookies.”
In 1930, Wakeefield was mixing a batch of cookies for her rondside inn guests when she discovered that she was but of baker’s chocolate. She substitudes broken pieces of Nestle’s semi sweet chocolate, expecting it to melt and absorb into the dough to create chocolate cookies.
That didn’t happen, but the surprising result helped to make Ruth Wakefield one of the 20th century’s most famous women inventors. When she removed the pan from the oven, Wakefield realized that she has accidentally invented “Chocolate chip cookies.”

3. Bette Nesmith Graham
The inventor of Liquid Paper.
She was an Executive secretary for W.W. Overton, the chairman of the Board of The Texas Bank and Trust. It was at this time that Graham and her colleagues at the Bank began experiencing trouble with the new IBM electric typewriters. Tired of having to retype entire pages because of one small error, Graham determined to find a more efficient alternative. Little did she know her prustation would lend to her becoming one of the most famous women inventors of the 20th century.
The impetus for Graham’s break through came as she observed painters decorating the bank windows for the holiday. Rather than remove their mistakes entirely the painters simply covered any imperfections with an additional layer. The quick-thinking Graham mimicked their technique by using a white, water – based tempera paint to cover her typing errors.

In my opinion, all of us have ever done mistakes in our lives except our beloved prophet Muhammad SAW who was protected by Allah along his life. When he did the mistakes, Allah corrected him directly, masha’Allah. Please see in Surah ‘Abasa.
I believe in every mistake there’s wisdom. So, we won’t do the same mistake in the future.

Now, I imagine myself. If I was afraid of getting mistakes at English grammar and my writing activity, I would never know about blogging and its benefits. I would never get the awesome friends, the beautiful suggestions, the wonderful stories of my friends’ homelands and so on.
When I did wrong at my writing, I got the correction from my friends, so I know my mistakes. That’s why I said, “We can learn from our mistakes to make our lives better.”

Please correct my post if you find something wrong in it. I always love it!

My dear Readers, you can also read my post about this proverb here!

Thank you for visiting and reading! ❤

A WISE AND UNWISE ARE NOT EQUAL


بسم الله الرّحمن الرّحيم

The Arabic proverb that I most liked today;

اَلْعَالِمُ كَبِيْرٌ وَإِنْ كَانَ صَغِيْرًا

وَالْجَاهِلُ صَغِيْرٌ وَإِنْ كَانَ شَيْخًا

A wise is likes an adult although s/he is still young. And unwise is likes a young, anyhow s/he is an old man/woman.”

            This proverb tells us, science and knowledge make someone different, and give him/her a decorous position in his/her life. Everything needs its science, even a little thing.

            See the science and knowledge of his/her and don’t see their ages. Beautify our manner and attitude to someone who teaches us, including our teachers. We should make a lot of duás for them as well as we do to our parents. Because through them, we can get our sciences. If we do this good act, إن شاء الله we’ll get (عِلْمٌ نَافِعٌ ) , it’s mean our sciences and our knowledge will give many benefits to others and especially to ourselves.

            Base on the proverb above, I am like an unwise, I meant in “English” especially.

            I say to you, O .. my teachers, I AM YOUR STUDENT.

            I don’t see your age, I only see your wide science and knowledge.

بارك الله لنا و في علومنا، أمين يا ألله يا مجيب الدّعاء

IT’S ME !!!


I love this Arabic proverb!

Arabic proverb.
Arabic proverb.

A young man who says “This is my father” so he isn’t a true young man, but a true young man will says “It’s Me”.

 

If I have to say, a good young man will not feels so proud of his parent. He will not says to everyone, I have a great father, he is a big Boss in the big company. My father has 100 great palaces, 100 big companies all over the world, 100 luxury cars, 100 islands, 100 wifes ( uups sorry !! ). On the contrary, he will feels so confident to says “IT’S ME!!” He’ll stands on his feet.
