    This story is very simple and straightforward...........................inshalah jus read it.................will take u all few minutes................................

    something to think about................................very very beneficial inshalah......................................................... ............... .................

    There was once a man who was going to travel to a dangerous land.

    He goes to the house of a man, well known for his honesty.


    He knocks on the door and tells him:

    I'm giving you $1440 to keep with you as I am travelling to a
    dangerous
    place.

    When I get back, I only want $17 back."

    The honest man stood their perplexed but agreed.

    The next day, the traveller comes back to the honest man's house and
    asks
    him for $17. The honest man tells him that he forgot and that he had
    spent
    it all.

    The traveller forgave him since he knew that this man is honest enough
    to
    give it back later.

    The next day, the same man travels to the same dangerous place and
    gives
    the same honest man $1440 to keep and at the end of the day, he will
    take
    $17 back. The traveller returns from his travels and asks the honest
    man
    for his $17. The honest man replies that he was so engrossed in having
    a
    good time with his friends, that he spent all the money again.

    Once again, the traveller forgave him, knowing he didn't do it on
    purpose.

    This same incident starts to happen everyday, whereby the honest man
    is
    given $1440 and is expected to return only $17 but fails to do so.
    Later
    on, his child becomes sick and the doctor who was going to give the
    treatment tells the honest man that if he wishes for his child to be
    looked
    after, the fee was $1440.

    The honest man starts to panic realising he can't afford $1440.

    It then struck him that the traveller used to give him that same
    amount.

    He runs to the traveller's house and asks him in a panic for $1440.

    The traveller told him that due to his feeble excuses, he has stopped
    going
    to his house as he has lost faith in his honesty.

    The irony is, that this story has once been directly relevant to each
    and
    every single one of us.

    It is quite remarkable that Allah (swt) gives us 1440 minutes each day
    and
    only specifies 17 minutes of that back in prayer.

    But due to the ignorance of people and the whisperings of Shaitaan the
    accursed, we are blinded towards the minute scale of what we are
    giving
    back.

    This story points out three things:

    1. The importance of Salah and how little we have to give back.
    2. The mercy of Allah that he forgives us even after such blunders.
    3. The fact that we only realise how important something is (in this
    case
    gift of wealth) until it is gone.

    any comments............... ................ .............. ......................

    All i hope is for my mums happiness.Shes my light.Shes my dunya.Her tears are my weakness.Her sadness breaks my heart.She is my mirror.A mirror that keeps me alive.Without her am nothing.shes my saaya.How can i leave her.I pray to Allah(swt) to keep me with her forever inshAllah.
