An aging King realized that if he died he has no
one to take over the throne. He decided to
adopt a son.
He launched a competition and 10 boys made it
to the top. The King said to them, "I have one
last test and whoever comes top will become my
adopted son and heir to my throne".
He gave each boy a seed of corn and told them
to take the seed home, plant and nurture it for
3 weeks. The 10 boys took their seeds and ran
home to plant their seeds.
In one home, the boy and his parents were sad
when the seed failed to sprout. The boy had
done everything but he failed.
His friends advised him to buy a seed and plant
it but his God fearing parents who had always
taught him honesty refused.
The day came and the 10 boys went to the
palace. All the 9 boys were successful.
The King went to each boy asking – “Is that what
came out of the seed I gave you?" And each boy
said "Yes, your majesty". The King would nod
and move down the line until the last boy in the
line who was shaking with fear.
The King asked him - "What did you do with the
seed I gave you?" The boy said "I planted it and
cared for it your majesty but it failed to sprout."
The King went to the throne with the boy and
said, "I gave these boys boiled seeds and a
boiled seed cannot sprout.
If a King must have one quality, it must be
honesty and only this boy passed the test.” We
live in a society where people will do anything
for success.
Allah sometimes does not give us things because
He wants to teach us a lesson.
How many people out there have achieved
success the wrong way? How many people send
their children to expensive schools and build
houses, buy expensive cars with stolen money?
How many people are occupying top positions
yet they stole the certificates? How many people
are successful out there at all costs?
HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE CROWNED AS
KINGS IN HEAVEN FOR BEING FAITHFUL UNTIL
THE END? I PRAY THAT I BE FAITHFUL TILL THE
END!!!
Please be faithful to Allah no matter what life
throws at you, even if life gives you boiled
seed.l
