Assalamualaikum wbt to all my dearest readers!
I hope ALLAH subhanawata'ala will always protect you and watch over you!
While I was browsing the Net, I had came across this anecdote that had made me ponder..
We , the human always feel discontented with what ALLAH had bestowed upon us
We always forgot to learn to be more grateful for what we have
And we always blame ALLAH when we think that life is not fair..
We always see rainbows at the top of our Muslim friends' heads, but we don't realize that we have a better rainbow with brighter and flamboyant colours that ALLAH had give us..
We always be kufur nikmat...without realizing that every pleasures and all the goods that we have is FREE OF CHARGE..
Lets read this anecdote and ponder.
We as Muslims must be more grateful next time..and we must always have the believe that ALLAH will always be with the people who know the meaning of gratitude.
A young man was getting ready to graduate college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.
As Graduation Day approached, the young man waited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box.
Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Quran. Angrily, he raised his voice at his father and said "With all your money you give me a Quran?" and stormed out of the house, leaving the holy book.
Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him since that graduation day.
Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care things. When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search his father's important papers and saw the still new Quran, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Quran and began to turn the pages.
As he read those words, a car key dropped from an envelope taped behind the Quran. It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words...PAID IN FULL.
How many times do we miss ALLAH's blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?
