A selfless pray



I usually don’t like sending or receiving forward messages. As per thinking ,it is one of useless thing one can ever do. Just to make sure that we are using our free package of sms ,we keep on sending jocks,qoutations and poetry to others. But few days back i read a forward message on my sister’s mobile (though it’s really bad to read others’ cell..ooops).and there was a message that i found close to my heart as it was about praying to God in a selfless manner. I just want to share this text with you people.

I PRAY to God ‘’let all my friend be healthy and happy forever.

God said: For four days only

I said: Yes! Let them be every spring day, autumn day, summer day, and winter day.

God said:’ No! Three days.

I said: Yes! Yesterday, today and tomorrow.

God said: NO! Two days.

I said:’’bright day (daytime), Dark day (night time)

God said: ‘No! One day’’

I said: Yes!

God asked: Which day?

I said: Everyday.

God laughed and said: you really know how to negotiate .but since you are asking for happiness for your friends .I can’t refuse love everyone who thinks of others. All your friends will be happy inshAllah.

Arooj,

Read 2 pending posts now. What you wrote for your dear husband is very very true. One should never offer prayers with selfish motive. This reminds me of what Sant Kabir says " DUKH MEIN SIMRAN SAB KAREIN, SUKH MEIN KARE NA KOYE, SUKH MEIN JO SIMRAN KARE, TO DUKH KAHE KO HOYE."

Take care
