Real Happiness comes by Helping – True Story

Last night as I was coming back from mosque, I saw a man standing a little away from me. As I approached him, I saw that he was staring directly at me.

Before I reached him, he opened up his hands in my direction & walked towards me.

I didn’t have much money with me, but the little I could give him I did. I started walking towards home, but before that I observed, that the man rushed towards a different direction after taking the money.

I thought perhaps he is just one of those men who beg for money to go in for another tot of alcohol or a pack of cigarettes, but still something in me, made to follow him. To my surprise I saw him rush towards a food seller by the roadside.

Then I said “Alhamdulillah, I just fed a hungry man”. I was filled with happiness thinking about.

Moral: We should always try to give no matter how little we have especially if the person asks for the help. For you do not know, the one who is opening his hands towards you, might actually be opening his hands to offer you something and not to receive. Remember in life what we see most a time is a deception of reality. I always believe that True happiness comes from Helping.

    ur in a misconception, you dont give money to anyone who is against islam…

    that is a crime in itself – not against islam or against allah, but against humanity.

    This is obviously a complicated topic but the simplified reason would be that they will encourage anti social behaviour since they have no knowledge about their existence.

    Instead, you do what a real muslim would do, and give da’wah to him.

    His life wont be made if he eats for one more day, but if you guide him towards the right path, his afterlife atleast might be saved.

    Allah knows best!
