لقمان الحكيم

يروى أن لقمان الحكيم كان عبداً نوبياً أسود ، وكان الله قد أعطاه الحكمة و كان لرجل من بني إسرائيل اشتراه بثلاثين مثقالا ونصف المثقال ، وكان يعمل له ، وكان مولاه يلعب بالنرد يقامر عليه وكان على بابه نهر جار ، فلعب يوماً بالنرد على أن من قمر صاحبه شرب الماء الذي في النهر كله أو افتدى منه وإن هو قمر صاحبه فعل به مثل ذلك ، فقمر سيد لقمان قال له القامر: اشرب ما في النهر وإلا فافتد منه ، قال: فسلني الفداء. ، قال: عينيك أفقؤهما أو جميع ما تملك ، قال: أمهلني يومي هذا ، قال: لك ذلك.
قال: فأمسى كئيباً حزيناً ، إذ جاءه لقمان وقد حمل حزمة على ظهره فسلم على سيده ثم وضع ما معه ورجع إلى سيده ، و كان سيده إذا رآه عبث به و يسمع منه الكلمة الحكيمة فيعجب منه ، فلما جلس إليه قال لسيده: ما لي أراك كئيباً حزيناً ، فاعرض عنه فقال له الثانية مثل ذلك فاعرض عنه ، فقال له: أخبرني فلعل لك عندي فرجاً ، فقص عليه القصة ، فقال له لقمان: لا تغتم فان لك عندي فرجاً ، قال: وما هو ؟ قال: إذا أتاك الرجل فقال لك اشرب ما في النهر ، فقل له: اشرب ما بين ضفتي النهر أو المد ، فإنه سيقول لك: اشرب ما بين الضفتين ، فإنه لا يستطيع أن يحبس عنك المد ، وتكون قد خرجت مما ضمنت له ، فطابت نفس سيده ، فلما أصبح جاءه الرجل فقال له: شرطي؟ قال له: نعم ، اشرب ما بين الضفتين أو المد ، قال: لا بل ما بين الضفتين ، قال: فاحبس عني المد ، قال: كيف أستطيع؟!!!
فخصمه ،
فاعتقه مولاه!

Loqman,, The wise man

Narrated that Loqman was a black slave that God gave him wisdom and discernment. He was a slave for one of people of Israel. His master used to gamble and there was a running river near to his house. Once, he played and gambled with a man that who lose should drink that river or redeem himself. However, Loqman's master lost and the winner said: you have to drink this river or redeem yourself.
Loqman's master said: what's the ransoming?
The winner replied: your eyes,, gouge out your eyes OR to give me all what you have.
Loqman's master answered: can you give me this day to think about it.
The winner replied: okay
Loqman's master was grieved. Loqman came and saluted his master, and he was holding a bundle of something,, he went on and put that thing and then returned to his master. His master used to joke with him and talk, but this time he didn't do that. So, Loqman sat near to him and said: What's wrong? Why are you sad and depressed? , but his master didn't answer and only turned away from him. Loqman repeated his question and his master did the same.
Loqman insisted and said: you have to tell me, you might find a way out with me. So, his master told him the whole story.
Loqman said: don't be sad, I found a way out for you.
His master said: What's that??
Loqman replied: when that winner comes to you and says: you have to drink the river,,, you say: okay, only what's between the riverbank or the tide,,, and he will reply: what's between the riverbank because he can't stop the tide.
So, you have to say: well then, you have to stop the tide first,,, and by that you will beat him. His master was pleased by Loqman's idea.

So, in the morning, the winner came and said: my condition,,, and Loqman's master replied: okay, what do you want me to do, drink what's between the riverbank or the tide. The winner said: No, just what's between the riverbank. So, Loqman's master replied: well then, you have top stop the tide till I finish.
The winner surprisingly replied: but, how can I do that???

By that, he overcame this crisis,, and as a reward to his faithful slave, he set him free.
