The Shipwreck



The only survivor of a shipwreck was cast away on a small, uninhabited island.
He prayed feverishly for Allah (SWT)  to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming,

Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from harsh weather and 10 store his few possessions.

But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened; everything was lost. He was stunned with grief and anger, Allah (SWT) t. how you could do this to me!" he cried.

Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. "How did you know I was here?" asked the weary man of his rescuers. "We saw your smoke signal," they replied.

It is easy to get discouraged when things are going badly. But we shouldn't lose heart, because Allah (SWT) t is at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering. Remember, the next time your little hut is burning to the ground-it just may be a smoke signal that summons The Grace of Allah (SWT) .

Sharing is caring. Please spread the story around your friend and show your love to us! May Allah (swt) bless us, forgive us and give us more rewards.
