A young man was getting ready to graduate college
For many months he had admired a beuatiful sports car in a dealer’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 has purchased the car.
Finnaly, on the morning of his graduation his father called him into his private study.
The door been knocking.
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, leather-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 succesful in bussines. 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 arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his sons. he needed to come home immedieately and take care things.
When he arrived at his father’s house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart.
He began to search 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 taped behind the Quran.
It had a tag dealer who had the sports car he had the desired. ON the tag graduation, and the words…PAID IN FULL.
How many times do we miss Allah’s blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?
