  • Lets play a trick on the man!!

    A young man, a student in one of the universities was one day taking a walk with a professor, who was commonly called the students friend, from his kindness to those who waited on his instructions.

    As they went along, they saw lying in the path a pair of old shoes, which they supposed to belong to a poor man who was employes in a field close by, and who had nearly finished his days work.

    The student turned to the professor, saying,
    "Let us play the man a trick, lets hide his shoes!! and conceal ourselves behind a bush and wait to see his perplexity when he cant find them"

    "Oh friend," answered the professor, "we should NEVER amuse ourselves at the expense of the poor. But you are rich, and may give yourself a much greater pleasure by means of this poor man. Put a coin in each shoe, and then we will hide ourselves and watch how this affects him..."

    The student did so and they both placed themselves behind the bushes close by. The poor man soon finished his work, and came across the field to the path where he had left his coat and shoes,

    While putting on his coat, he slipped one of his feet into his shoes, but feeling something hard, he stooped down to feel what it was, and felt the coin. Astonishment and wonder were seen upon his countenance. He gazed upon the coin, turned it around and looked at it again and again. He then looked around him on all sides, but no person was to be seen. He now put the money in his pocket, andproceeded to put on the other shoe; but his surprise was doubled on finding another coin.

    His feelings overcame him; he fell upon his knees, looked up to heaven and uttered aloud a fervent thanksgiving in which he spoke of his wife who was sick and helpless and his 7 children without bread, when this timely bounty, from some unknown hand, would save from perishing.

    The student stood there deeply affected. and his eyes filled with tears. "Now" said the professor, "are you not much better pleased than if you had played your intended trick?"

    Th youth replied "you have tought me a lesson which i will never forget!"

    I feel now the truth of these words, which i never understood before...


    "ITS MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE"

    Hazrat Abdullah Bin Abbas RA reported that the prophet PBUH said that encouraging good, prohibiting evil, lifting the burden of the weak person and removing an offensive thing from a path are all accaptable prayers to allah (Ibn Majah)
    "Do not lose hope in adversity and complain that God singled you out for punishment, remitting others guilty of worse sins.Your present state could very well be His intent to elevate your spiritual station; or He could just be testing your faith. Everyday that you persevere, you grow closer to perfection.Thus your present despair may be beginning of an infinite blessing.":love:
