Allah is The Kindest. Here is a Short Islamic Story that will give us a glimpse of How Kind is Allah. Allah has 99 names and most of His names show his kindness. In the Qur’an Allah has also made mention of a verse where He says His kindness transcends all His other qualities. I was reading a book of Moulana Tariq Jameel Saheb and came across this beautiful Story.
Allah – Islamic Stories for Kids in English
There lived an idolator in the past who made an idol out of stone and would worship it everyday. He would call it upon it by saying “Ya Sanam.” For seventy years, he worshiped this idol. One day by mistake he uttered “Ya Samad” instead of Ya Sanam. Samad is a name of Allah which means The Self Sufficient Master. Allah Ta’ala immediately replied to this idolator by saying “I am present oh My slave.” The angels asked Him why He replied to him since he didn’t even call upon Him intentionally. He told the angels that for seventy years I have been waiting for this servant of mine to turn towards Me!
If a mother has only one child then how much would she love him? He would be the coolness of her eyes and the comfort of her heart. But if this son calls her saying “Mommy” more than four or five times, she would get irritated even though she loves him more than her ownself. On the other hand, when we call Allah once, He replies to us 70 times by saying “Labbaik Ya Abdi (I am here oh My slave).” How unfortunate we are that we have not recognized our creator who is so Kind, Merciful and Forgiving.
(Love for Muhammad PBUH is the basic teaching of Islam.)… Islam is not terrorism nor backwardness, but Islam is teachings of peace. “Ashadunna La illaha illallahu Wa Ashadunna Muhammadan Wa Rasuluhu.”
