Islam Invite to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided." Holy Qur'an 16:125

Thumbs up A Beautiful story about QURAN.

Why do we read Qur'an, even if we can't understand a single Arabic word???? This is a beautiful story.
Anold American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of easternKentucky with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up earlysitting at the kitchen table reading his Qur'an. His grandson wantedto be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could.

Oneday the grandson asked, 'Grandpa! I try to read the Qur'an just likeyou but I don't understand it, and what I do understand I forget assoon as I close the book. What good does reading the Qur'an do?'

TheGrandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied,'Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket ofwater.'

Theboy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got backto the house. The grandfather laughed and said, 'You'll have to move alittle faster next time,' and sent him back to the river with thebasket to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the basketwas empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told hisgrandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and hewent to get a bucket instead.

Theold man said, 'I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket ofwater. You're just not trying hard enough,' and he went out the door towatch the boy try again.

Atthis point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show hisgrandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water wouldleak out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped thebasket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfatherthe basket was again empty. Out of breath, he said, 'See Grandpa, it'suseless!'

'So you think it is useless?' The old man said, 'Look at the basket.'

Theboy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that thebasket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coalbasket and was now clean, inside and out.

'Son,that?s what happens when you read the Qur'an. You might not understandor remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed,inside and out. That is the work of Allah in our lives.'

'The one who guides to good will be rewarded equally'
