Mouse Goes to the Beach

One day little Mouse put a ton of sun tan lotion and went to the beach. He was on his knees packing sand into his little pink bucket, scooping and packing. The he turned it over and smacked the bottom of the bucket like his mummy smacked his bum when he drew on the couch with crayons. And, to the delight of him, a small castle tower was created.

All afternoon he wo

rked, making a moat, making walls, making bridges and finally aiming for his sandcastle.

On the other side of town Big Mouse was in his office. At his desk he shuffled paper into stacks and assignments. His phone was on his shoulder as he spoke and punched keys on his keyboard. Numbers were being juggled and contracts signed and much to the delight of Big Mouse, a profit was made. All his life he will work like this. Formulating the plans, forecasting future trends, making himself rich and building his 'sandcastle'.

These two builders have much in common. They shape granules into grandeur. They see nothing but make something, being diligent and determined. And for both, the tide will rise and the end shall come. Yet this is where the similarities cease, for the boy senses the end while the man ignores it.

As the waves near, little Mouse jumps to his feet and begins to clap like a retard at his creation. There is no sorrow, no fear, no regret as he knew this might happen. When the great wave crashes into his castle and it is sucked into the sea, he smiles, picks up his bucket and goes home.

Big Mouse however is not wise. As the waves of years and trials collapse on his castle he is terrified, he tries everything to protect it. He keeps saying "it's my castle!!!"....however the 'ocean' does not need to respond. Because He does not need to, and knows full well who the 'sand' belongs to....

This example illustrates to us that nothing actually belongs to us. So when we are faced with a situation where something is taken away from us, we should realise that it was from Allah and it was gifted to us as an Amaanat and not be sad about it. Whether it might be our health(bodies), a spouse, a family member....whatever it might be, remember it belonged to Allah always, and always will.

Hadeeth Newsflash

Reported by Jundub bin `Abdullah (RA): The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "Once someone said: `By Allah! Allah will not forgive such and such (a person).' Thereupon Allah, the Exalted and the Glorious, said: `Who is he who takes an oath in My Name that I will not grant pardon to so-and-so? I have granted pardon to so-and-so and rendered your good deeds fruitless.''' [Muslim]
