Is There Life After Delivery?

In a mother’s womb were two babies, talking to each other.

One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”

The other replies, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”

“Nonsense,” says the other. “There is no life after delivery. What would that life be?”

“I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths.”

The other says “This is absurd! Walking is impossible. And eat with our mouths? Ridiculous. The umbilical cord supplies nutrition. Life after delivery is to be excluded. The umbilical cord is too short.”

“I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here.”

The other replies, “No one has ever come back from there. Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery it is nothing but darkness and anxiety and it takes us nowhere.”

“Well, I don’t know,” says the other, “but certainly we will see mother and she will take care of us.”

“Mother??” You believe in mother? Where is she now?”

“She is all around us. It is in her that we live. Without her there would not be this world.”

“I don’t see her, so it’s only logical that she doesn’t exist.”

To which the other replied, “Sometimes when you’re silent you can hear her, you can perceive her. I believe there is a reality after delivery and we are here to prepare ourselves for that reality.”

Dear Reader, please give a fitting Moral to the story!!

    God exists. The Unseen is true. We will meet Him Almighty God. And life after death is true

    The paradise of one man could be ten times more than this entire world and the person will posses the ability and capability of enjoying it in itys entirety because our existence will be different from what we are now. Engage in much zikr to gain much more from the unlimited resources of the Magnificiently Magnanimous

    This is the wonderful and best example for the people who can understand !
    It is the example for the life hereafter, just like a child who is in the womb of mother cannot see and imagine the world outside, we cannot even imagine the HEAVEN which is the guest house made by the Almighty ALLAH SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALA for the people who obeys in the way of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), performing SALAH, HAJ, ZAKAH & SAUM RAMADAN are the pillars of ISLAM, not the complete Religion, spreading and passing the message of ALLAH which was passed by our prophet to the entire nation as a great responsibility is a biggest work on this earth untill everlasting of this world, either it is 2013th century or what ever the digit is, may ALLAH SWT make all of us like SAHABA the companions of our Prophet (Aameeen) who were the best people on the earth.

    Thank you
