Emotional story...

Asalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah brothers and sisters.

I've gotten this story from a friend. It is truly an emotional and inspiring story.Each good thing we do no matter how little, Allah will never let it waste. May Allah swt employ us and grant us the ability to work for His Perfect deen (amiin)

Please share the kheyr (good things)




Quran 3:104: Let there arise amongst you a band of people inviting to all that is good and right, and forbidding the wrong. Such are the successful ones...


Qur'an 16:125: Invite to the way of your Lord with beautiful preaching and
in the best ways...



Every Friday afternoon, after the Jumat service at the Central mosque (and shortly after Al Usrah program), the Imam and his eleven year old son would go out into their town and

hand out THE PATH TO PARADISE " and other Islamic literature.





This particular and fortunate Friday afternoon, as the time came for the Imam and his son to go to the streets with their booklets, it was very cold outside, as well as pouring rain.



The boy bundled up in his warmest and driest clothes and said, 'OK, dad, I'm ready!'

His dad asked, <,i>'Ready for what?' 'Dad, it's time we gather our tracts

together and go out.' Dad responds, 'Son, it's very cold outside and it's pouring rain.'

The boy gives his dad a surprised look, asking, 'But Dad, aren't people

still going to hell, even though it's raining?' Dad answers, 'Son, I am not going out in this weather’ despondently, the boy asks, 'Dad, can I go? Please?'

His father hesitated for a moment then said, 'Son, you can go. Here are

the booklets. Be careful son.' 'Thanks, Dad!'



And with that, he was off and out into the rain. This eleven year old boy

walked the streets of the town going door to door and handing everybody he met in the street a pamphlet or a booklet. After two hours of walking in the rain, he was soaking, bone-chilled wet and down to his VERY LAST BOOKLET. He stopped on a corner and looked for someone to hand a booklet to, but the streets were totally deserted.



Then he turned toward the first home he saw and started up the sidewalk

to the front door and rang the door bell. He rang

the bell, but nobody answered.. He rang it again and again, but still no one answered. He waited but still no answer. Finally, this eleven year old da'wah-expert turned to leave, but

something stopped him. Again, he turned to the door and rang the bell and knocked loudly on the door with his fist. He waited, something holding him there on the front porch! He rang again and this time the door slowly opened. Standing in the doorway was a very sad-looking elderly lady. She softly asked, 'What can I do for you, son?' With radiant eyes and a

smile that lit up her world, this little boy said, 'Ma'am, I'm sorry if I disturbed you, but I just

want to tell you that? ALLAH REALLY LOVES AND CARES FOR YOU? and I came to give you my very last booklet which will tell you all about God, the real purpose of creation, and how to achieve His pleasure.' With that, he handed her his last booklet and turned to leave.



She called to him as he departed. 'Thank you, son! And God Bless You!'



Well, the following Friday afternoon after Jumat service (during which period they hold a weekly program, Al-Usrah) the Imam was giving some lectures. As he concludes the lectures, heasked, 'Does anybody have questions or want to say anything?' Slowly, in the back row among the ladies, an elderly voice was heard over the speaker. As the voice went on, a hint of glorious gaiety and contentment was plainly evident in it even though the wasn't to be

seen, 'No one in this gathering knows me. I've never been here before. You see, before last Friday I was not a Muslim, and thought I could be. My husband passed on some

time ago, leaving me totally alone in this world.. Last Friday, being a particularly cold and rainy day, it was even more so in my heart that I came to the end of the line where I no longer had any hope or will to live. So I took a rope and a chair and ascended the stairway into the attic of my home. I fastened the rope securely to a rafter in the roof then stood on the chair and fastened the other end of the rope around my neck. Standing on that chair, so lonely and broken-hearted I was about to leap off, when suddenly the loud

ringing of my doorbell downstairs startled me. I thought, I'll wait a minute, and whoever it is will go away.?

I waited and waited, but the ringing doorbell seemed to get louder and more insistent, and then the person ringing also started knocking loudly. I thought to myself again, 'Who on earth could this be? Nobody ever rings my bell or comes to see me.' I loosened the rope from my neck and started for the front door, all the while the bell rang louder and louder. When I opened the door and looked I could hardly believe my eyes, for there on my front porch was the most radiant and angelic little boy I had ever seen in my life. His SMILE, oh, I could never describe it to you! The words that came from his mouth caused my heart that had long been dead TO LEAP TO LIFE as he exclaimed with a cherub-like voice, 'Ma'am, I just came to tell you that ALLAH REALLY LOVES AND CARES FOR YOU!' Then he gave me this booklet,? Path To Paradise? That I now hold in my hand. As the little angel disappeared back out into the cold and rain, I closed my door and read slowly every word of this book. Then I went up to my attic to get my rope and chair. I wouldn't be needing them any more. You see? I am now a Happy Vicegerent of the One True God. Since the address of your congregation was stamped on the back of this booklet, I have come here to personally say THANK YOU to God's little angel who came just in the nick of time and by so doing, spared my soul from an eternity in hell.'



There was not a dry eye in the mosque.. And as shouts of TAKBIR!!! ALLAH AKBAR!!! rented the air, even among the ladies, despite themselves. Imam-Dad descended from the pulpit to the front row where the little angel was seated.... He took his son in his arms and sobbed uncontrollably. Probably no jama'at has had a more glorious moment, and probably this

universe has never seen a Papa that was more filled with love and honor for his son... Except for One. This very one...
