The Old Man and the Atheist Neighbour

There was an old man, who every morning stepped out of his house, raised his arms to the sky, and shouted: ‘Praise be to God!’

One day an atheist moved into the house next door. He became irritated at the old man. Every morning he’d step onto his front porch after him and shout: ‘There is no God!’ Everyday this was the routine between the two.

One morning, the old man stepped out of his house and shouted: ‘Praise be to God! Please God, I don’t have any food and I am starving, provide for me, oh God!

The next morning the  old man stepped out onto his porch and there were two huge bags containing food stuff.

‘Praise be to God!’ he cried out. ‘He provided the food to me when I was starving!’

The atheist neighbor jumped out of the hedges and shouted: ‘There is no God, I bought the food for you !!’

The old man threw his arms into the air and shouted: ‘Praise be to God! He has provided the food for me and made the Devil pay for it!’

    So true!

    The more we look around we can behold the bounties of the Lord! How can we then be atheists denying the very existence of our wonderful Creator.

    Whoever you are Sara you are doing a remarkable work of inspiring people to be closer to the Creator. Allah is great today and He is forever. Surely Allah will bless you more for your works of sharing His wisdom to many readers.

    The Almighty God Allah only has made the changes in the Atheist’s mind to give the food to the old. This is the way of Allah.

    Unfortunately we are living in a time where Creator is not recognized in its true spirit. After all we are returning to Him to give account of our life.
    84:6. O man! Verily, you are returning towards your Lord with your deeds and actions (good or bad), a sure returning, so you will meet (i.e. the results of your deeds which you did).
    May God save the humanity from His punishment.

        Pardon me but I was wondering all this time about your Gender ?? Are Male or Female ?? Or Do you use female name to attract visitors ??

          Look at the smily/icon representing Sara… it is a male figure. I think SARA is a an assumed name or acronym adopted by the owners of this site to make it more attractive. I have noticed some of the readers go beyond the limit in praising (excessively) the stories & jokes JUST to please SARA.

    It’s very true , Allah can give whatever to whoever wherever through whoever regardless whatever
