Why are you crying?

A man reached 80 years of age and he had an infection in his ears which made him almost deaf. The doctors informed him that  an operation was necessary to cure this disease. He agreed to have the operation done as he couldn’t hear anything apart from the severe pain in the ears.

When the operation was completed successfully, his doctor gave him the bill which covered all the costs.

The old man looked at the bill and started to cry. Upon seeing this the doctor felt pity on the old man and told him that if the cost was too high then they could make some other arrangements.

The old man said “I am not crying because of the money but I am crying because God let me hear for 80 years and He never sent me a bill.”

Moral: There are so many blessing of God which we don’t realize its importance, until  its snatched away from us.

    There is non of Allah’s favors that we can deny and never can we be grateful enough for them. May the Almighty help us to appreciate His blessings on us(amin)

    We take things we have from OUR LORD for granted….

    What an inspiring one. Thanks Sara.
    The blessings of God makes rich and adds no sorrow to it. Most often we take God’s blessings for granted, especially the gift of life – It is my prayer that the Almighty God will help us to be appreciative of His mercies and grace.

    Indeed Allah (SWT) is great! He gives man all that is required to make him achieve his purpose in life, yet man looks elsewhere and take less important things to be great and important! What a pity! The purpose of creation is to serve Allah and to make this easy, Allah gave us the ability to see, to reason, to walk, to talk, to hear etc. But man makes acquisition of wealth his priority and forgets Allah and therefore his purpose of being in life. Man would not realise what Allah has done for him until he lost same. May Allah make us His servants who will always see His glory and serve Him always to achieve the purpose of creation and at the end be dwellers of Al-jannah. Thanks for the story Sarah, it is soul lifting! Kind regards.

    It’s worth knowing that God’s gift makes rich and adds no sorrow. How much would the old man have to pay if he never heard for 80yrs?

    God always does what is right and just, but man has to account for what he does, out of his own free will and judgement.

    God is awesome. He healed us every second, He deserved to be paid in thanksgiving and praises. Also by preaching Jesus and drawing near unto Him the lost ones. Thank you Jesus. What can we do without you.

    This is the GOD, gives without waiting to take.
    Infinative number of thanks for GOD for all of his given.
    The younger, the man knows this moral, the longest his happyness in his life.

    Thank you, SARA, for this nice story of the deaf man at 80.

    Yes, we mortals so easily ignore the so many good things of Life that our Maker has given us.

    Thank you Almighty Allah.

    We Human are very unthankful to Allah. If we look around in our daily lives there are so many things which we don’t even think that are belssings and we only realize when we are deprived of them.

    May Allah make us thankful, Aameen

    If we make our true reconciliations (our analysis vs. shari’a (islamic laws) ) then offcourse we will find that we muslims (atleast me and in general) do not deserve even a single drop of water…even then our CREATOR ALLAH THE ALL MIGHTY is giving us EVERYTHING besides we deserve NOTHING. Even then…we are not thanksful to HIM,,,most of us having so many complaints with our fortunes…very strange.

  29. Sara August 20, 2011 at 10:30 AM #

    Thanks Almighty for Everything !!!
    [14:7] Al QuranAnd [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will give you more; but if your are ungreatful, indeed, My punishment is severe.’ “
