The Small Stone That Hit Hard – Awesome Analogy !

buildingOne day a Construction Company Manager went to the construction site to check on the work going on.

There was some problem in the 10th floor of the building so the manager wanted to call a labourer working on the Ground floor to fix it.

The Manager instead of going all the way down to the labourer decided to call him by shouting his name from 10th floor. Because of the noise the labourer could not hear the Manager’s call.

After some time the Manager thought of an idea. In order to draw the attention of the labourer he threw a $10 note in front of the labourer.

The labourer picked it up and put in his pocket and continued his work

Again the Manager threw $20 note and the labourer did the same thing. He took the note and put it in pocket and continued his work. Now the Manager picked up a stone and threw at the labourer and the stone hit the labourer.

This time the labourer looked up and the Manager succeeded in communicating with him.

There is a very important message that this simple story presents. It can be very well compared to our “LIFE”

Almighty God always wants to communicate with us, but we are busy with our worldly lives.

All the blessings/gifts that God gives us in this world we take them for granted. We just call ourselves lucky to have got those blessings and never thank God. Exactly like the Labourer in the Story.

And when we are afflicted with a little hardship (like the small stone in the story) we look up to seek God and try all the possible ways to communicate with Him.

Just think about this…

What if God decided not to listen to us? What if He said he has no time to listen to our prayers? What if God decided to withhold all the blessings we are receiving right now? Who would save us if He were to abandon us?

That’s why it is rightly said

God gives, gives and forgives
And man gets, gets and forgets

Moral: Don’t wait till you are hit by a stone. Invest your time in God, the rewards are huge

    True lesson for me. I never realized the bounties of Allah to me until I was hit with cancer a few days back. Thanks for the wonderful story.

    So very true. Should we wait to be hit by a stone. Hence do your Salahuddin irrespective of good or bad times.

    Good story.

  22. M Abdul Majeed Siddiiqui March 24, 2014 at 8:07 PM #

    We have to be always thankful to Almighty ALLAH what he gives us. Right to see the people who are having lesser things rather than seeing the vice versa, then our life goes smooth and will be thankful to Almighty….

  27. Stephen March 23, 2014 at 1:53 PM #

    I always thank God for putting me through all the hardships & for making me strong day by day, as I know the Almighty has plans for me, to reach out to the less fortunate humans & can know what they are going through, when they tell me their plight. If you ask God for strength, you get problems, by which you become strong.

    Very nicely explained. 🙂

    SubhanAllah Very True…

    This is a very good lesson for Atheists especially. Most of the Atheists I have talked to say “Why is there crime, disease and illness in the World if you say God exists and how can you call such a God Most Merciful and loving ?”

    I just don’t understand WHY these Atheists just don’t acknowledge the blessings God has given them ? They very easily blame God if something bad happens and if something good happens they just don’t ascribe it to God let alone be grateful to Him. ABSOLUTE HYPOCRISY !

  31. Ali Q March 22, 2014 at 12:47 PM #

    True indeed, as Allah Almighy said in the holy Quran”we will give more to those whome thankfull”
