A teacher told one of his lazy students: “if you bring me a handful of the dust of Paradise, you’ll be a successful student.
The next day, the little boy came with a handful of dust and gave it to his teacher. The teacher became angry and said :”Are you kidding me! where did you get this from?”
The student answered with tears in his eyes “This dust was under the feet of my mother, didn’t you teach us that Paradise lies under the feet of mothers.” ♥ ♥ ♥
