SPECIAL GROCERY LIST

A poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into
a
grocery store.

She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and
asked
if he would let her charge a few groceries.

She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to
work,
they had seven children and they needed food. The grocer, scoffed at
her
and requested that she leave his store at once.

Visualizing the family needs, she said: "Please, sir! I will bring
you
the money just as soon as I can."

The grocer told her he could not give her credit, since she did not
have
a charge account at his store.

Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the
conversation between the two. The customer walked forward and told
the
grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her
family.


The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, "Do you have a grocery
list?"

The lady replied, "Yes sir." "O.K" he said, "put your grocery list
on
the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you
that
amount in groceries."

The poor lady, hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she
reached
into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled
something on
it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with
her
head still bowed.

The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the
scales
went down and stayed down.

The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and
said
begrudgingly, "I can't believe it."

The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on
the
other side of the scales. The scale did not balance so he continued
to
put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no
more.

The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he grabbed the
piece
of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement.

It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said:

"O Allah, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands."

The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in
stunned silence.

The lady thanked him and left the store.The other customer handed a
fifty-dollar bill to the grocer and said;

"It was worth every penny of it . Only Allah Knows how much a prayer
weighs."

Just stop right now, and say a prayer of thanks for your own good
fortune.

Trust Allah to heal the sick, provide food for the hungry, clothes
and
shelter for those that don't have as we do. Amen.


Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. There is no cost
but a
lot of rewards.
