A Beautiful story about the QURAN

بتاريخ 5:32 م بواسطة Akram Alodini



Why do we read Quran, even if we can't

understand a single Arabic word???? This is
 a beautiful

story.

An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the

mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson.

Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen

table reading his Quran. His grandson wanted to be just

like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could.



One day the grandson asked, "Grandpa! I try to

read the Quran just like you but I don't understand it,

and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the

book. What good does reading the Qur'an do?"



The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in

the stove and replied, "Take this coal basket down to

the river and bring me back a basket of water."



The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked

out before he got back to the house. The grandfather laughed

and
 said, "You'll have to move a little faster

next time," and sent him back to the river with the

basket to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but

again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of

breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to

carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket

instead.



The old man said, "I don't want a bucket of

water; I want a basket of water. You're just not trying

hard enough," and he went out the door to watch the

boy try again.



At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but

he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as

fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got

back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into

river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather

the basket was again
 empty. Out of breath, he said,

"See Grandpa, it's useless!"



"So you think it is useless?" The old man

said, "Look at the basket."



The boy looked at the basket and for the first time

realized that the basket was different. It had been

transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now

clean, inside and out.



"Son, that's what happens when you read the

Qur'an. You might not understand or remember

everything, but when you read it, you will be changed,

inside and out. That is the work of Allah in our

lives."
