Story of two friends

The example of two friends

Allah has given us another opportunity to share with each other some
advice which will remind us about the purpose of our lives
inshallah. These advice are written and posted by Muslim youths just
like you.

Our belief in Allah needs to be strong and solid. Right now if I
were to ask you "Is there a ground under you?" You would without a
doubt say yes. Then if I asked "Is there a sky above you?" You would
reply yes again without a doubt. Our belief in Allah should be so
strong that if I was to ask "Is Allah watching you right now?"
Without a doubt you should say yes. This type of belief doesn't come
by sitting at home and doing nothing. We must work for it. Allah the
Almighty has said in the Holy Quran: As for those who strive hard
``in Us`` (Our Cause), We will surely, guide them to Our Paths.
(Surah Ankabut: 69).

Let me share a story with you. Two friends were travelling together.
One was blind and the other could see. Now, when the night fell,
they decided to take some rest and continue the journey in the
morning. This area was such that in the day time the temperature
increases pretty high but in the night the temperature decreases
significantly. Much like the areas near the oceans. In the morning,
the person who could see left to find some food. The blind man
stayed behind and was just touching here and there around him. Now,
what had happened at night is that one snake was passing by this
place. But due to the extreme coldness, the snake became inactive,
frozen, and straight. This blind man's hand fell on this snake and
he thought that it's a very nice stick. He picked it up and became
very happy. To a blind man, a good stick is a very valuable thing.

Later, the person who could see came back with some food and saw his
friend touching a snake. So he shouted and said to throw it away.
But the blind man insisted, you want this stick don't you? I am not
going to throw it away. After trying hard, he couldn't convince the
blind man to throw it away. Anyway, they continued their journey.
Then the temperature began to rise and the snake started regaining
its energy. When it received enough heat, it flexed its muscles and
bit the blind man.

We can compare ourselves to this situation also. We are like this
blind man and Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is like the person who could
see. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) went to Miraj and saw the horrors of
Hell and the blissfulness of Paradise. Now, the Prophet told us
about many things to give up and stay away but because we can't see
the dangers that's why we don't pay any attention to them. But when
the time comes, we will get into serious problems. That is why, we
should follow the rules and regulations of Islam
