Do You Really Trust God More Than Your Loved Ones ?

wales_porthcawl_storm_389548_lOne day a husband and wife were going back to their village after meeting their relatives who lived in another village. There was a river between the villages which they had to cross if the needed to travel to the other village. So when the couple got into their boat to cross the river, when they were halfway into the river, a big storm arose. The husband was courageous and brave, but the situation there was hopeless. They could just do nothing to save their lives. He did not fear the storm, but his wife was afraid and started trembling with fear. There was no sign of fear or amazement on Husband’s face. He didn’t utter a word and just sat there calm and quiet as if nothing was happening.

On seeing her husband sitting quietly, she said, “We are about to die. Are you not afraid of this storm? How can you sit so calmly? Are you mad or something? Are you a stone or something? We are on the verge of dying. Aren’t you scared of death? ”

The man laughed and took a knife out of his bag and held it at his wife’s neck very close. And asked her, “Are you afraid now?”

She laughed and said, “How can I be afraid if the knife is in your hands? And I know that you love me so much”

He put his knife back in his bag and told, this is my answer

“Just like you know I can’t kill you and you trust me so much, I know God loves me much more than I love you so why should I be scared? The storm is in God’s hands and I trust Him with all my heart, Whatever He will do will be for our own good. If we survive that would be for our good. If we don’t that would be for our own good as well, we know nothing while God knows everything. He knows what is best for His creation.”

Moral of the story: Don’t become devastated if a calamity befalls you. Do not lose hope even if you feel the situation is hopeless; just put all your trust in God. If you are facing hardship then know that God knows you are strong enough to deal with it, otherwise it would never have come to you in first place.

    3 Questions…

    There was a young scholar who was studying the deen, but he had 3 questions that he could not figure out. His mother told him that there is a Mufti that he should go and speak to regarding his questions, so he decided to go and speak to this Mufti.
    The 1st question he asked was: “Does ALLAH exist and if so, then show me the shape of ALLAH ?”
    2nd question he asked was: “Everyone speaks about Takdir(what must be will be and what cannot be wont be). Explain this to me?
    3rd question he asked was: “They say Shaytaan/Devil will be thrown in the hell fire. If Shaytaan was created of fire then how can fire burn fire?”
    The Mufti said: “those are great questions young boy”. The Mufti gave the boy a smack through his face and said to the boy that the answers to your questions lies in that smack i gave you. The boys pondered, trying to figure out what the Mufti meant. He asked the boy :What did you feel when i smacked you through the face? The boy said that he feels pain. So the mufti asked the boy to show him the shape of the pain, but the boy could not. The Mufti said: You believe that pain exists but you cant show me the shape. We all feel and believe that Allah exists but cannot see his shape.
    The Mufti asked the boy: “Did you ever imagine that you were going to get a smack from me today” The boy answered no. The Mufti answered, this is Takdir(what must be will be and what cannot be wont be). The Mufti asked the boy: The hand i smacked you with, what is it created of? The boy said skin. The Mufti asked, what is your face created of? The boys once again answered, skin. The Mufti asked what did you feel when i smacked you? He said i felt pain. The Mufti said, even though Shaytaan/Devil is created of fire, he will still feel pain when he is thrown into the fire of hell.

    Fadi you are so right.
    If we believe in God it should show in our actions.
    We are seemingly a bunch oh hypocrites.
    We want people to believe in God but ourselves we are not the least bit ready to change ourselves to impress him the least bit

    do you think there’s a god , hem its just people thought , do we need to believe because you just believed , its a joke , and there’s no any god there, and if he is there
    , i think maybe he is weak or mad or hate us as we hate him , and am sure that most of the people are hate him 99% because if they are really believing on him they should follow his role ; and no one is following ! even if they think they are following but the real they are not , hahah
    & because am not believe i shouldn’t bush you to believe on me, and you should be the same keep it for your self.

      Dear Fadi,

      When you see a car, you ask is it made by Toyota or Nissan ? or some American company! Just because you do not see the manufacturer you cannot deny his existence.

      Then it would be great folly to deny the Creator of this amazing world and us humans just because we are not able to see Him!!
      Think over it and the consequences if your thinking is wrong…

      Dear Fadi

      Few days before, I hope u must have the most beautiful video on this website: Do you want to know the purpose of your life. All ur questions about God is answered in the video.

      I really dont understand, how can people deny the existence of God. Why dont we think who created us, how can we be created. Even after so much of advancement in technology, if the whole world gathers, can they make a mosquito or a fly or the tiniest living creature on Earth. Can Science and Technology give life to Robots. Can they make similar to human beings.

      In every single creation of Universe, we can see reflection of God. Believe me, u will be amazed when u read the verses of Quran and I am not saying this just because I am a Muslim, but people couldn’t prove till now any verse that is incorrect or contradicts with Science.

      Seems the reason why u dont believe in God might be the problems that u have in ur life. May Almighty Allah help u in all ur problems and guide u to the Right Path. Ameen. Just call Allah once and He will help u.
