Sports Car vs. Qur’an


A young man was getting ready to graduate college. For many
months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom,
and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he

As Graduation Day approached, the young man waited signs that
his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation
his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud
he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him.
He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box.

Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man opened the box
and found a lovely, leather-bound Qur’an. Angrily, he raised his voice
at his father and said "With all your money you give me a Qur’an?" and
stormed out of the house, leaving the holy book.

Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business.
He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father
was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not
seen him since that graduation day.

Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling
him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his
son. He needed to come home immediately and take care things.
When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and regret filled
his heart. He began to search his father's important papers and saw the
still new Qur’an, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened
the Qur’an and began to turn the pages.

As he read those words, a car key dropped from an envelope taped
behind the Qur’an. It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same
dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the
date of his graduation, and the words...PAID IN FULL.

How many times do we miss ALLAH blessings because they are not
packaged as we expected?

Indeed, can we go as far as to say, "everything is Allah's blessings"? Even if it seemingly bad. We should get up in the morning and say alhumdulillah a hundred times,no matter how hard life's trials are.
