"Dude, You have No Qur'an!"

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ


There was a man in a park.  He had doused the Qur'an with gasoline and he was going to barbeque it.  There were Muslims there.  They just watched and they protested.  Along came this boy who was not even a Muslim.  He grabbed the Qur'an from the guy and ran away shouting: "Dude, you have no Qur'an!"

You see, once, long ago, a man was drunk, on the way home from the brothel.  A Muslim who did not pray.  And he found a scrap of parchment on the road with the name of Allah (s.w.t.) written on it.  He picked it up and rubbed some perfume on it and put it in his pocket and forgot all about it.

But Allah (s.w.t.) does not forget.  And made him a wali.  "You have cleansed My Name.  So I have Cleansed you and Raised you."  And the details of the story are in Annals of the Awliya’.  What more someone that saved an entire book of Revelation?  Even in his ignorance, that he did not know the Treasure that it was.  Do you not think that this boy is a wali?  Perhaps, for saving His Book from the Fire, insha'Allah, Allah has Made the Fire haram to him.  And that is God's Love.

  1. Nice post. But I don't know about 'Annals of Awlia' book. From what I know there are so many stories about awliya that's not even verified as true or existing. Inshallah, may God lead the boy to 'the Garden beneath which river flows'-Jannath.

  2. Assalamu'Alaikum,

    We know the book and we know the silsila of the stories. But that is for another post, insha'Allah.

    Wassalam,
