A VERY RICH MAN WENT TO A VILLAGE WITH HIS SON. TO SHOW HIM HOW POOR CAN PEOPLE BE. ON RETURN,

 FATHER ASKED '' WHAT DID YOU LEARN?

'' SON REPLIED '' WE HAVE NO CATTLE BUT THEY HAVE FOUR''.

''WE HAVE A SWIMMING POOL WHICH IS QUITE BIG BUT THEY HAVE A LAKE & ITS END CAN'T BE FOUND''.

''OUR GARDEN HAS IMPORTED LAMPS BUT THEY HAVE A SKY FULL OF STARS''.

 '' OUR COURTYARD ENDS AFTER FEW YARDS BUT THEY HAVE THE WHOLE WORLD AHEAD TO PLAY''.

THANX DADY FOR SHOWING ME HOW POOR WE ARE….......

his son just showed him real treasure… i don't think that riches are not measures by things…there are a lot of things that can compare with money, etc…. and this story is very meaningful

in the kids eyes,this world is totally different from the adults'. They always speak out somthing true and meaningful to our life.I think we should respect the kids' idea because they are angles and told us god's real will

I want to share this story 

Sand and Stone

A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand: “TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.”
They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one, who had been slapped, got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After the friend recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone: “TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.”
The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?”
The other friend replied: “When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”

LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND, AND TO CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE..

الرمل والصخر
ترويْ لنا القصةُ حكايةَ صديقينِ كانا يمشيَان في الصحراءِ، وبعدّ أنْ قطعا مسافةً منَ الرحلةِ حدثَ بينهما خلافٌ، وصفعَ أحدُ الصديقين الآخرَ على وجهِه. تألمّ الصديقُ الذي تلقى الصفعةَ لكنَّه لمْ يقلُ شيئًا، إلا أنه كتبَ على الرمالِ: ” لقدْ صفعنِي اليومَ أعزُ أصدقائِي.”
استمرَا في السيرِ حتى وجدا واحةً قررا أن يستحِما فيها، وأثناء ذلك عِلقَ الصديقُ الذي تلقَّى الصفعةَ في المستنقعِ وبدأ بالغرقِ، لكنَّ صديقَه أنقذَه، وبعدّ أنْ عادَ إلى الحياةِ بعدَ غرقٍ محتومٍ، كتبَ على الصخرِ:” لقدْ أنقذنِي اليومَ أعزُ أصدقائِي.”
سألَه صديقَه الذي صفعَه وأنقذَ حياتَه:” كتبتَ على الرمال بعدّ جرحِي لك والآنَ تكتبُ على الصخرِ! ..لماذا؟”
فأجابَه صديقُه: ” عندما يجرحُنا أحدٌ ما فعلينا أنْ نكتبَ ذلكَ على الرمالِ لأنَّ رياحَ الغفرانِ قادرةٌ على محوِها، أما عندما يحسنُ إلينا أحدهم، فيجبُ أنْ ننحتَ ذلك على الصخرِ لأنَّ الرياحَ لا تستطيع محوها أبدَ الدهرِ.”

تعَّلم أنْ تكتبَ أتراحَك على الرمالِ، وأنْ تنحتَ أفراحَك على الصخرِ.

Hi Maariya

Very nice story, thanks for sharing.

we have a lot gifts that we take them as granted, a few weeks ago I broke my eyeglasses and couldn’t watch the world as transparent as always used to see for a few hours all of those things that I supposed as discomforts and problems in my everyday life were disappeared and my only real problem was to see the world as beautiful and transparent again. I realized that day how many gifts I have in my life that I’m not aware or take as granted and I’m not gona appreciate them until I lose them.
