View Full Version : We don’t know

*Story of Sabar, Yakeen and Shukur*

Two beggars knocked on the door asking for bread.

One beggar was given a loaf and sent away. The other was kept waiting and waiting.

At length, the second beggar became concerned.

"Why am I being denied? What is so lacking in me that the other one was favoured over me?" he asked himself.

Unknown to the beggar, a fresh loaf was being baked for him inside the house.

*Let’s remember that Allah’s delays are not always His denials. His timing is always perfect.....never early never late.*

It takes a little patience *(Sabar)*
and it takes a lot of faith *(Yakeen)*
and gratitude *(Shukur)*
but its worth the wait.

We don't know *what* tomorrow holds but We know *who* holds tomorrow -
the Most Merciful, the Most Loving, the All Wise.

*My heart is at ease knowing that what was meant for me will never miss me*
*and that what misses me was never meant for me*

So in either case I need to do
*Sabar* and *Shukur*
and have a strong belief
that everything is happening for my good!!!!!

Greetings and peace be with you jameelash;

Thanks for sharing, and your story reminds me of a homeless man I met. He had been homeless for about five years, suffered with mental health problems and carried all of his possessions in a couple of bags. He said that every night when he finds somewhere to sleep, he reflects on his day and finds several things to thank God for. Here was a man who had nothing and he still found reasons to be thankful, I found this to be a profound lesson in trusting in God, when most things are out of your control.

They say good things come those who wait. In this case the latter beggar got a freshly baked warm loaf whilst perhaps the first one got one that had been baked a little time ago. Who knows?
