THE SIGNAL THAT SUMMONS THE HELP OF GOD


The Shipwreck

by I am a Muslim ! on Saturday, January 29, 2011 at 3:11pm

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island ….

He prayed feverishly for Allah to rescue him,and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming.

Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements and to store his few possessions.

But then one day, after scavenging for food,he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened;everything was lost. He was stunned with grief and anger.

“Allah, how could you do this to me!” he cried.

(Comment; Plenty of people use such statement — think again you should never qestion Allah nor object to his willing)

Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. “How did you know I was here?” asked the weary man of his rescuers. “We saw your smoke signal,” they replied.

It is easy to get discouraged when things are going badly.  But we shouldn’t lose heart, because Allah is at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering.  Remember, next time your little hut is burning to the ground–it just may be a smoke signal that summons The Grace of Allah.

Pass this on. You never know who may be in need of this today.
