(Kisah berikut diterima melalui WhatsApp. Tentang rezeki dan barakah. Semoga kita mengambil iktibar. Agak panjang…)
Pada satu masa dulu, ada seorang lelaki tua di zaman Nabi Musa AS. Dia sentiasa sibuk berzikir kepada Allah SWT tetapi macam terganggu sedikit sebab setiap hari, dia asyik fikir dan risau pasal rezeki dia. Hari-hari memang rezeki dia ada sebuku roti sahaja.
Satu hari, Nabi Musa AS lalu di tempat orang tua itu. Orang tua itu pun fikir inilah peluang terbaik untuk dia tanya Nabi Musa AS untuk tanya Allah SWT tentang rezeki dia. Dia pun tegur dan beri salam kepada Sayyidina Musa AS dan dengan teragak-agak, dia tanya,
“Oh Nabi Musa, apabila tuan bercakap kepada Allah, bolehkah tuan memohon Allah meningkatkan rezeki saya? Dari dulu sampai sekarang, saya dapat sebuku roti setiap hari. Saya berhajat untuk dapat lebih. Bolehkah saya dapat lebih dari itu? Jika tuan bertanya kepada-Nya, sesungguhnya pasti Allah akan menjawab permintaan tuan dan memberikan saya lebih.”
I wanted to say “Most probably dead. Six feet under. Resting in peace.”
But instead, I told him “Probably… contributing to the society in my own little way.”
He was quiet, so I asked him back.
“What about you? Where do YOU see yourself in 10 years’ time?”
His look was intense.
He said slowly, “Probably… married to my amazing wife, having beautiful children, living in a cosy house that is our home and having an awesome career, and in the pink of health!”
He was still looking at me. I looked away at the horizon, where the sky meets the sea.
“That’s a tough one. But who doesn’t want that?”
“Well,” he said, “I think I’m on track. I’m with you, aren’t I?”
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
This is what I found out about myself from this test. Interesting… Some I already know and some I don’t.
Your view on yourself:
You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.
Surfing the Internet and fresh from a make-up course in September, I signed up for bellabox in early October.
Bellabox exists for women who want to try out samples of new beauty items before they decide what works for their skin, or checking out what’s new in the market. The free delivery to my doorstep that comes with the monthly subscription is a plus point too!
The delivery came promptly on 16 October as promised in their email confirmation. It was a good 1st impression because it wasn’t a box but a bag! Lucky me! Caught them just in time for their 2nd anniversary special! 🙂
