Woman and the Hunchback – Great Moral Story!

A woman baked bread for members of her family and an extra one for a hungry passerby. She kept the extra bread on the window sill, for whosoever would take it away. Every day, a hunchback came and took away the bread. Instead of expressing gratitude, he muttered the following words as he went his way: “The evil you do remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!” This went on, day after day. Every day, the hunchback came, picked up the bread and uttered the words: “The evil you do, remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!”  The woman felt irritated. “Not a word of gratitude,” she said to herself.
“Everyday this hunchback utters this jingle! What does he mean?”  One day, exasperated, she decided to do away with him. “I shall get rid of this hunchback,” she said. And what did she do? She added poison to the bread she prepared for him! As she was about to keep it on the window sill, her hands trembled. “What is this I am doing?” she said.  Immediately, she threw the bread into the fire, prepared another one and kept it on the window sill.
As usual, the hunchback came, picked up the bread and muttered the words: “The evil you do, remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!” The hunchback proceeded on his way, blissfully unaware of the war raging in the mind of the woman.
One day, as the woman placed the bread on the window sill, she offered a prayer for her son who had gone to a distant place to seek his fortune. For many months, she had no news of him. She prayed for his safe return. That evening, there was a knock on the door. As she opened it, she was surprised to find her son standing in the doorway.  He had grown thin and lean. His garments were tattered and torn. He was hungry, starved and weak.
As he saw his mother, he said, “Mom, it’s a miracle I’m here. While I was but a mile away, I was so famished that I collapsed. I would have died, but just then an old hunchback passed by. I begged of him for a morsel of food, and he was kind enough to give me a whole bread. As he gave it to me, he said, “This is what I eat everyday: today, I shall give it to you, for your need is greater than mine!” ” As the mother heard those words, her face turned pale.
She leaned against the door for support. She remembered the poisoned bread that she had made that morning. Had she not burnt it in the fire, it would have been eaten by her own son, and he would have lost his life! It was then that she realized the significance of the words: “The evil you do remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!”
Moral:
Do good and Don’t ever stop doing good, even if it is not appreciated at that time. Because some day or the other, if not in this world but surely in the Hereafter you are going to get compensated for your actions in this world.

    The evil you do, remains with you. The good you do,
    comes back to you.

    Definitely, there is always a reward for doing good or bad.

    It is marvelous.Do what ever charity you can incessantly with out expecting anything in return, even a word of appreciation, such an action is itself blissful!

    Very true, some peoples said, always do good and keep doing good regrdless people take it in a negative manner, but be sure your action is full of purity to please Allah only.

    we always eagerly expects appreciations and gratitudes from ohers,,, have we ever thought that whatever we do here will be counted in allah’s views..we gets so selfish with materialistic appreciation

    if we will reap whatever we sow, it is better we keep on doing good, so that we gain good in return

    The giver should give indiscriminately, just as the sun gives its light to the saint and the sinner alike. ‘” AS YOU SOW ,SO YOU WILL REAP” BIBLE QUOTE.

    before doing anything good, our intention should be to please Allah instead of the humen.

  12. Wasim September 24, 2012 at 12:47 PM #

    if we start FEAR ALLAH, we can not do anything bad with anyone.
    Its a nice moral story of Law of Nature.
