The Sports Car and The Quran

. Apr 5, 2009 .

The Sports Car and The Quran

A young man was getting ready to graduate college .

For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a delaer'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 waited signs that his father had purchased the car

Finally , on the morning of his graduation , his fater 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 dissapointed , the young man opened the box and found a lovely , leater-bound Quran
Angrily , he raised his voice at his father and said "With all your money you give me a Quran?!! " 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 any arrangements , he received a phone call 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 fo his father's important papers and saw the "still new" Quran , just as he had left it years ago . With tears , he opened the Quran and began to turn the pages

As he read those words , a car key dropped from an envelope tape behind the Quran


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 blessing because they are not packaged as we expected?

" But seek the forgiveness of ALLAH , for ALLAH is Oft-forgiving Most Merciful "
( 4 : 106 )
