  • Oh ALLAH, I almost sold you for a quarter

    A nice story with an important message . . . .

    Several years ago, an Imam from out-of-state accepted a call to a Mosque in Houston,Texas. Some weeks after he arrived, he had an occasion to ride the bus from his home to the downtown area. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him a quarter in excess change. As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, 'You'd better give the quarter back. It would be
    wrong to keep it.' Then he thought, 'Oh, forget it, it's only a quarter. Who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company gets too much fare; they will never miss it. Accept it as a 'gift from ALLAH' and keep quiet.'
    When his stop came, he paused momentarily at the door, and then he handed the quarter to the driver and said, 'Here, you gave me a quarter in excess change ' The driver, with a smile, replied, 'Aren't you the new Imam in town?'
    'Yes' he replied.
    'Well, I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you excess change.
    I'll see you at the mosque.'
    When the preacher stepped off of the bus, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, held on, and said, 'Oh ALLAH, I almost sold you for a quarter.'

    Our lives are the only Quran some people will ever read. This is a really scary example of how much people watch us as Muslims, and will put us to the test! Always be on guard -- and remember -- You carry
    your IMAAN on your shoulders when you call yourself a 'Muslim.'

    Watch your thoughts; they become words.
    Watch your words; they become actions.
    Watch your actions; they become habits.
    Watch your habits; they become character.
    Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
    I'm glad a friend forwarded this to me as a reminder.
    May ALLAH bless you; I hope you had a wonderful day!

      Beautiful story... Alhamdulilah I also once found 20 quid on the streets. It was not mine to keep and so I gave it to the first begger on that street. Mum switched on me, saying that's from Allah swt.. But no. It felt right to return it and I will get good deed back. I was only 13 at the time and still makes me proud. :)
      I love you, cherish you and worship you,
      Guide me on your path to your janna,
      Unite me beside you My King and all mighty,
