Nowhere to Turn to but Allah (s.w.t.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

A man entered the mosque when it was not the time for prayer, and he found a ten-years old boy praying with proper focus and humility.  He waited until the boy had finished praying, then he came, greeted him and asked, “Whose son are you?”

The boy lowered his head and a tear rolled down his cheek, then he raised his head and said, “O uncle, I am an orphan who has no father or mother.”

The man felt sorry for him and said, “Would you like to be my son?”

The boy said: “If I get hungry will you feed me?”


“If I am naked will you clothe me?”


“If I fall sick will you heal me?”

“I am not able to do that, my son.”

“If I die will you bring me back to life?”

“I am not able to do that.”

The boy said, “Then leave me, my uncle, to the One Who Created me, for He will Guide me and He is the One Who Gives me food and drink.  If I fall sick, He Heals me and He is the One Who, I hope, will Forgive me on the Day of Judgement.”

The man fell silent and went on his way, saying, “I believe in Allah, whoever puts his trust in Allah, Allah Will Suffice him.”
