A construction supervisor from the 16th floor of a building was calling a worker who was on the ground floor. Because of noise the worker did not hear his call.
To draw attention, the supervisor threw a 100 shilling note in front of the worker. He picked up the note, put it in his pocket and continued to work. Again to draw attention the supervisor threw 1000 shilling note and the worker did the same.
Now the supervisor picked a small stone and threw on the worker. The stone hit the worker. This time the worker looked up and the supervisor communicated with him.
This story is the same as to our Life.
Allah from up there wants to communicate with us but we are too busy doing our worldly jobs. Then, He gives us small gifts and big gifts too. We just keep them without looking where we got them from. We are the same, just keeping the gifts without thanking Allah. We just say we are Lucky.
And when we are hit with a small stone/stones which we call Problems, only then will we look up and communicate with Him. That’s why it is said, “Allah gives, gives and forgives while we get, get and forget”.
Always remember Allah and make it a point to say ‘Alhamdulillah’.
