its all about Amanah

 Assalamu'alaikum..
 *this is a part of an email from my best friend ,  Afzal Baig ..may Allah Bless him ;) 
bismillah

Assalamu alaikum

During the time of Ibn Taymiyyah.. In mecca (masjid ul haram) after the solah (namaz) a man stood up and announced that "Does someone saw my bag of 1000 deenars (currency)" .... 

After sometime a old man 80 years of age came to that man who lost his bag and said .."if someone finds your bag, are you willing to give any gift to that person"

he replied "No, i dont give any gift or price to the person who find it because the amount is not mine, it is amanah (someone else)"

Then the old man left the person and went home, 

Ibn Taymiyyah was watching all this and followed the old man secrectly...

when the old man entered his house, his wife asked, "did the person announce anything as gift,if someone finds his bag" the old man told his wife "no"....

Actually this old man found that bag....

His wife told " Let we use some amount from the bag, as we are suffering from faaqa (hungry) and children are hungry from somany days, and no clothing, Allah will forgive us"

The Old man replied "No, I cant do this, I spent my whole age 80 years in faaqa, and at the end of my life i dont want to do anything against the will of Allah"

Ibn Taymiyyah was watching this all issue...

In the masjid again.. the person announced the same thing "did anyone find my bag of 1000 deenars "

The old man went to him again and said " Will you like to give gift to the founder as 10 deenars if possible"

the man said " No, I cant give anything, it is amaanah"

The old man went to his house, again the wife asks and issue continues....

After 3 days .. the old man came to the person and said " I found your bag, you can collect from me in my house, i am not in peace from 3 days as i keep your money with me"

The man follow the old man to his house, and Ibn Taymiyyah too..

The man saw the house situation as soo poor...

After the man received the bag he said " This amount of money is from my father, My father advised me to give to the poor, I dont find any other more poorer than you, so i give this 1000 deenars to you"

La ilaha illallah.............

The old man took the 1000 deenars and he called the Ibn Taymiyyah who is with the issue all the time.. to share the money to him too.As it is bounty and it is to be shared with all.

The old man family is of 9, (7 children, old man and his wife) and ibn Taymiyyah is shared with them as 10.

So the old man distrubuted all the 10 people with 100 deenars each.

Ibn Taymiyyah used this 100 deenars for his writings, learnings (for the islam)...

The old man got so much barakat with this money, and his daugters were given in marriage to the Kings of Saudia...

And till date the Some Royals of Saudia are the descendents of this old man...

.................................end...................

May Alloh give us Sabr to all of us too inshallah and be loyal to Alloh inshallah in all the time ameen ya rab.............

And lets be faithful to Alloh till the last breath inshallah because shaitan always wants us to get away from islam...

A story of another old man who is soo pious in his all life, but died as kaafir .. continues inshallah...
