Once a boy went to a shop with his mother.The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed him a bottle with sweets and said “Dear Child. You can take the sweets”. But the child didn’t take any. The shopkeeper was surprised.
He said again, “Take the sweets”. Now, the mother also heard that and said “Take the sweets dear”. Yet he didn’t take it. The shopkeeper, seeing the reluctance of the child, took the sweets with his two hands and gave it to the child. The child was extremely happy!
While returning home the Mother asked the child, “Why didn’t you take the sweets, when the shop keeper asked you to take?”
Can you guess the response: ?!?!?
The child replied, “Mom! My hands are very small and if I take the sweets I can only take few..But now you see when uncle gave with his big hands….How many more sweets I got!”
Moral: When we take we may get little but when Allah gives He gives us beyond our expectations.. more than what we can even think of :)
“Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter. But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared to the hereafter.”(Al-Quran 9:38)
So, lets collectively strive for the Hereafter inshaAllah!
