What Goes Around Comes Around – True Story !

cycle1I thought hard about telling this true story because I don’t want my rewards to be reduced because what I did was purely for the pleasure of God and the rewards that I hope to get.

Some years back, one day I was sitting at home when I heard a knock on the door. I went out and saw a young boy whom I had been seeing around the neighbourhood and I did not know his name, standing outside my door. He greeted me and I asked him what the problem is and he told me that he was offered an admission into School for Arabic Studies in Kano. As it was at a reasonable distance from our place which he cannot cover on foot, he requested me to kindly buy a bicycle for him.

Praise be to God, I could afford it then. I just told him to wait for me and I got back into the house and picked my car keys. We drove to a popular market where they sell brand new bicycles and I asked him to choose the type of bicycle he wants. I paid and also added some money for servicing and a set of keys.

Many years had passed, when one day after the Ramadan fast during the Eid celebrations my eldest daughter who was about 10 years old then came into my room and told me that their Qur’an (Muslim Religious Book) Teacher at school is outside and wants to greet me. I went out to see him, but to my greatest surprise I saw that young boy whom I bought that bicycle years before, standing outside.

He greeted me with respect and I was proud and grateful to God for helping someone who was in need not knowing that one day my daughter would directly benefit from.

To this day my daughter doesn’t know why her teacher greeted me in such a respectful manner and I didn’t tell her. She just believed we might have met somewhere.

Moral of the story

Always be kind and compassionate towards the needy and the poor and spend in charity whatever you can. God rewards in unimaginable ways in this world and the hereafter.


“If the good is sown, the good is collected. When positive things are made, that returns well” – Yannick Noah

Action Item

Help those in need and God will reward you with something good in return.

    It is always good to do good to everybody be the person you know or you do not know and to those who turn around to say thank you and to those who did not say thank you. One thing we must have at the back of our mind is that is only God that will reward you fully. Please seize any opportunity to do good.

    Doing good to the people who do good to you, is nothing new, but doing
    good to people who do bad to you, that is where the reward is in in Heaven

    I am sure of that from my personal experience. My father used to do good whenever and to whoever was necessary and I always had found people to stand by me side when I needed that. Now I do good whenever I can and I know my daughters will always find good from other too……….. and they learned to do good always

    AND what the right hand does, the left hand mustn’t know.

    This is true, I myself have more than one similar experience, the Holy Quran says:” One who does whit of good will see it”…(Alzalzala 7&8)
