This is one Powerful Email Forward Story That Makes One Think About Others! Please take a few minutes to read and a few more to ponder it. How many situations we may have missed like this trying to catch the flight while somebody else suffers for our mistakes and neglect!
This is really powerful and makes one think!!!!
A few years ago a group of salesmen went to a regional sales convention in Chicago . They had assured their wives that they would be home in plenty of time for Friday night’s dinner. In their rush, with tickets and briefcases, one of these salesmen inadvertently kicked over a table which held a display of apples. Apples flew everywhere. Without stopping or looking back, they all managed to reach the plane in time for their nearly missed boarding the plane… ALL BUT ONE !!! He paused, took a deep breath, and experienced a twinge of compassion for the girl whose apple stand had been overturned..
He told his buddies to go on without him, waved good-bye, told one of them to call his wife when they arrived at their home destination and explain his taking a later flight. Then he returned to the terminal where the apples were all over the terminal floor.
He was glad he did.
The 16 year old girl was totally blind! She was softly crying, tears running down her cheeks in frustration, and at the same time helplessly groping for her spilled produce as the crowd swirled about her, no one stopping and no one to care for her plight.
The salesman knelt on the floor with her, gathered up the apples, put them back on the table and helped organize her display. As he did this, he noticed that many of them had become battered and bruised; these he set aside in another basket.
When he had finished, he pulled out his wallet and said to the girl, ‘Here, please take this $40 for the damage we did. Are you okay?’ She nodded through her tears. He continued on with, ‘I hope we didn’t spoil your day too badly.’
Then the he walked away, to catch his late flight.
That’s the end of the story. The saleman didn’t receive a reward for his act then and there. But he was inconvenienced and delayed and maybe had to spend extra money to catch the missed plane. But he probably made a world of difference to that blind girl. That we will never know.
Too many Muslims today are selfish and don’t care to think about others. If we claim to follow the last prophet of Allah we should live, walk and act as He would. Lets make it a point to be considerate and avoid hurting others be helpful to others in our short journey in this life on earth. Ameen.
