A young man was getting ready to Graduate from 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 wanted.
As Graduation Day approached,
The young man awaited 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,
Told him how much he loved him.
He handed his son a beautifully wrapped gift box.
Curious, but somewhat disappointed,
The young man opened the box
Found a lovely, leather-bound Koran,
With the young man's name
Embossed in gold.
Angrily, he raised his voice to his father and said,
'With all your money, you give me a Koran?'
And Stormed out of the house,
Leaving the Koran.
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 of things.
When he arrived at his father's house,
Sudden sadness and regret filled his heart.
He began to search through his father's important papers
And Saw the still new Koran,
Just as he had left it years ago.
With tears,He opened the Koran
And Began to turn the pages.
His father had carefully underlined a verse:
'And if ye, being evil know how to give good gifts to your children,
How much more shall Allah, Who is in heaven,
Give to those who ask Him?'
As he read those words,
A car key dropped from the back of the Koran.
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's blessings
Because they are not packaged as we expected?
I trust you enjoyed this.
Pass it on to others.
Do not spoil what you have
By desiring what you have not;
But remember that what you now have
Was once among the things you only hoped for...
IF YOUR GIFT IS NOT PACKED THE WAY YOU WANT IT,
IT'S BECAUSE IT IS BETTER PACKED THAT WAY!
THEY USUALLY LEAD YOU TO ATTACHMENTS!
PLEASE SEND THIS TO AT LEAST TWO
PEOPLE SO AS TO LET THIS GREAT LESSON
Never pass up an opportunity to tell
Someone how you feel about them.
When it comes to good friends,
Forgive, forgive, & forgive!
It's never worth the pain to hold grudges,
Go years without seeing someone
Missing an opportunity to say: I LOVE YOU!
Life is short,
You just may never get the chance to
Tell them again.
it's never worth the pain!
