    Default Beautiful Story About Qu'ran

    Bismillah-hir- Rehma-nir- Rahim



    Beautiful story about QURAN.

    Why do we read Quran, even if we can't understand a single Arabic word????
    This is a beautiful story.

    An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky
    with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the
    kitchen table reading his Quran. His grandson wanted to be just like him
    and tried to imitate him in every way he could.

    One day the grandson asked, 'Grandpa! I try to read the Quran just like you
    but I don't understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I
    close the book. What good does reading the Qur'an do?'

    The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied,
    'Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of
    water.'

    The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back
    to the house. The grandfather laughed and said, 'You'll have to move a
    little faster next time,' and sent him back to the river with the bask et
    to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty
    before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was
    impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket
    instead.

    The old man said, 'I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket of
    water.

    You're just not trying hard enough,' and he went out the door to watch the
    boy try again.
    At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his
    grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak
    out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into
    river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was
    again empty. Out of breath, he said, 'See Grandpa, it's useless!'

    'So you think it is useless?' The old man said, 'Look at the basket.'

    The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the
    basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket
    and
    was now clean, inside and out.

    'Son, that's what happens when you read the Qur'an. You might not
    understand or remember everything, but when you rea d it, you will be
    changed, inside and out. That is the work of Allah in our lives.'
