Price Of Imaan

------------------------------------------------------

Several years ago an Imaam moved to London . He often
took the bus from his home to the downtown area. Some
weeks after he arrived, he had occasion to ride the
same bus. When he sat down, he discovered that the
driver had accidentally given him twenty pence too
much change. As he considered what to do, he thought
to himself, you better give the twenty pence back. It
would be wrong to keep it. Then he thought, oh forget
it, it's only twenty pence. Who would worry about this
little amount? Anyway, the bus company already gets
too much fare; they will never miss it. Accept it as a
gift from Almighty Allah and keep quite. When his stop
came, the Imaam paused momentarily at the door, then
he handed the twenty pence back to the driver and said
" Here, you gave me too much change.":statisfie

The driver with a smile replied " Aren't you the new
Imaam in this area? I have been thinking lately about
going to worship at your mosque. I just wanted to see
what you would do if I gave you too much change." When
the Imaam stepped off the bus, his knees became weak
and soft. He had to grab the nearest light pole and
held for support, and looked up to the heavens and
cried "Oh Allah, I almost sold Islam for twenty
pence!":laugh:

Remember, we may never see the impact our actions have
on people.

Sometimes we are the only knowledge of Quran someone
will read, or the only Islam a non-Muslim will see.
What we need to provide, Insha Allah is an example for
others to see. Be careful and be honest everyday,
because you never know who is watching your actions
and judging you as a Muslim.

Just remember- Allah is watching you.
If we could get arrested for being a Muslim ,
would the police have enough evidence to bring us in?

Why is it so hard to tell the truth but yet so easy to
tell a lie?

Why are we so sleepy in mosque but right when the
prayer is over, we suddenly wake up?

Why is it so hard to talk about Allah but yet so easy
to talk about nasty stuff?

Why is it so boring to look at a Islamic Article but
yet so easy to look at a nasty one?

Why is it so easy to delete a Godly e-mail but yet we
forward all of the nasty ones?

Why are the mosque's getting smaller, but yet the
dance clubs are getting larger?

Do you give up?? Think about it ....


Just remember- Allah is watching you.

Prayer Wheel, Let's see the devil stop this one!
Here's what the wheel is all about. When you receive
this, say a prayer for the person that sent it to
you....

Let's continue praying for one another.
As we look at this article we realise how true the
Messenger( P.B.U.H ) was. These signs were prophesized
1400 years ago!!!

:sl: Ukhti,

Jazakallah Khairn, wonderful reminder.

I believe I am going to print this paragraph on Business cards:

Sometimes we are the only knowledge of Quran someone
will read, or the only Islam a non-Muslim will see.
What we need to provide, Insha Allah is an example for
others to see. Be careful and be honest everyday,
because you never know who is watching your actions
and judging you as a Muslim.
And give them to our Islamic Center's bookstore, to give out as reminders to all of us..
