A Story For You All

Recommended Posts

A story for all of you.

 

There was once a man of great prestige and physical stature in a community. One day a man who lacked prestige and physical stature - he looked poor and ugly with an unappealing visage - came to the first man asking him to lend him utensils so he could prepare food for his mother because she was coming the visi after a long time of not seeing him. The great man turned his sight away from the poor man and frowned - his eyebrows becoming harsh like the desert without oasis and his eyes like the burning, merciless Sun at its zenith - thinking to himself, this person only wants to steal my untensils and thus fool me. The poor man looked at him and seeing on his face that he wouldn't lend him the utensils said to him, it is fine - and he said this without any resentement in his voice. The poor man left him.

 

Later during the day, the great man burst into tears in the company of the great. His companions also of equal prestige asked him, why do you cry, have you lost family or something. They had never seen him cry and didn't know what to make of the situation - Him crying?! The man said to them, I am ugly, poor and of low prestige. His companions started laughing - verily, you know how to make us all laugh, you had us fooled with the tears. He shook his head in the negative and insisted that it was true. The others looked at each other, their eyes spoke to each other saying, surely he has lost it. The man explained that in the eyes of God he was ugly, poor and of low prestige and yet He gave him untensils when he asked. Then all of the company wept.

When lies roll off your tongue with smooth ease as a way of habit

When you break your promises like you break wind

When you regard trusts as means of treachery like the Arabs regarded trade as usury

All the while your heart feels no rebuke, you have become a hypocrite.

below is quoted a dua'aa of rasulullah alaih assalaatu-vassalaam:

{allaahumma laa yudrikni zamaanun v laaa yudrikuo zamanan laaa ya-ttabia'a fihi al-aleemu, v laa yasthyaa fihi minal haleemi, quloobuhum quloob al-a'aa'jim v alsinatuhum alsinatul arab}

 

 

amen...but i personally feel we are there already.

salaam.
