Did You Ever Think About It?

The Blind Old Man

Faisal,a small boy was walking with his father for a short walk.

Suddenly he saw a man who was struggling to walk with a stick. The man was tall and dressed in simple but clean clothes. He was wearing dark sunglasses even though it was night time.

Faisal asked his father, “Dad, Why is the man wearing dark glasses in the night? Why is he using a stick and moving it around?”

His father followed his gaze and saw that it was a blind man.

His father said, “Son, God has not given him the gift of sight. This man is blind. He cannot see.”

Faisal was shocked and touched his eyes and said, ”Thank you God for the eyes that you have given me. May I only see what is good and allowed. O God, make this man’s life easy for him and guide him to the straight path.”

There were tears in Faisal’s eyes as he continued looking at the blind man. How thankful he felt that God has given him eyes with which to see.

When he reached home, Faisal put on a blindfold on his eyes and tried to walk around.

He started bumping into the furniture and the walls.

He was slow and clumsy. Once he even fell down as he tripped over the stool. He could not see his mum’s beautiful face or the beautiful flowers in the garden. All he saw was blackness.

He heard so many noises and almost became frightened. He could not see where the noise was coming from.

He was relieved to take off his blindfold. Suddenly, there was a burst of colour all around him. For the first time he really appreciated this beautiful gift of sight from God.

Faisal touched his eyes again and said, “O God! Thanks for this sight you have given me.”

Moral: The realization of a blessing is only after its taken away from us.

    Al-Qura’an Sorah Ibraheem verse # 7:
    “And when your Lord proclaimed: If ye give thanks, I will give you more, but if ye are thankless, lo! my punishment is dire.”
    May Allah give the courage and gratitude to thank HIM. Ameen

    We make complaints for not affording and possessing goods that others can. But never thank Almighty God for giving us feet to walk, hands to work, tongue to speak, ears to hear, eyes to see, brain to think and heart to feel and love.

    we should appreciate all gifts given to us and very thankful ,and never complain that we have less than than others ,because what we have might be the dreams of the others

    i heard that prophet mohammed said if you loose your eyes and take it you’ll go to heaven

    We always run to God when we have the slightest of problems, BUT never give thanks for all that has been given to us by the Almighty without us asking for it & hence we come to know the value only after we lose it. Our’s is a merciful God who gives us what we need & not what we want, BUT we are never happy as we look at others, as it is said neighbours envy owners pride.
