Touching Islamic Story: There was a very small family consisting of a man, his wife and their only child named Arif. The family was very pious and God fearing. The couple always wanted their only child to be honest and wise. While Arif was of 5 years, the father passes away. The mother takes double care of him from then.
The mother never left Arif anywhere alone. She always took him wherever she went. Every week she paid a visit to a shop taking the son along with her. The shop keeper every time saw the kid so silent and never talking. But he was very eager to talk to the kid. So, he decided that he would give the kid some chocolates.
Touching Islamic Story, Allah’s Generosity
One fine day, when the mother arrived with her kid. The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed him a bottle with sweets and said ‘Dear Child, you can take some of these chocolates. But the child didn’t take any of them.
The shop keeper was surprised, such a small child he is and why is he not taking the sweets from the bottle. Again he said take the sweets. This time the mother also heard that and said, “Son, please take the chocolates”. Yet he still didn’t take any.
The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking the sweets, himself took the chocolates and gave them to the child. The child was happy to get two hands full of chocolates.
When they returned to their home, Mother asked the child, “Why didn’t you take the chocolates, when shopkeeper told you to take them, not once but twice?”
Can you guess the response?
Child replies, Mom! my hands are very small and if I take the chocolates I can only take a very few, but now you see when the kind shop keeper gave with his big hands how many more chocolates I got!
Moral: Let Allah give according to his generosity
