An Emperor had a wise minister in his court, who always advised the Emperor not to be disheartened; and always to be positive; no matter what the situation was, and he used to tell the Emperor: "that everything Allah does is perfect and is best for us."

One day the minister accompanied the Emperor on a hunting trip into the forest. A Tiger attacked the Emperor and the minister managed to kill the Tiger and save the Emperor’s life, but couldn’t prevent the Emperor from losing one of his fingers. The Emperor with extreme anger and without any appreciation or thankfulness turned towards his minister and said, “You always tell me Allah is Great, He is Perfect, He can make no mistakes and that whatever He does is the best for us, if that was really true, I would not have been attacked in the first place and lost my finger!!!”

The minister replied, “In spite of what has happened to you I still believe Allah is great, perfect and whatever He does is for our own good”.

Outraged by the response, the Emperor ordered his soldiers to arrest the minister and put him in prison. While he was taken to the prison the ministered shouted, “Allah is GREAT Allah is PERFECT."

Once again the Emperor set out for hunting into the forest alone this time and was captured by some barbarians who had this tradition of giving human beings to their gods as a sacrifice. They made the Emperor lie on the altar and made all preparations to sacrifice him when they noticed that one of the Emperor’s fingers was missing, so they released the Emperor as he was considered not complete to be offered to their gods.

The Emperor returned to his palace happily and ordered his minister to be released and said, “Indeed you were right, Allah was really good to me. I was almost killed, but because I had lost one finger I was saved and released.” The Emperor was still confused and asked the minister “If Allah is so good, why did He allow me to put you in the prison? He could have easily saved you.” The Minister replied, “My Majesty, if I had not been put in prison, I would have accompanied you today, and would have been sacrificed in your place as I have no missing finger. So everything Allah does is PLANNED, PERFECT and the BEST."

Sayyadina Jaabir Radiyallahu Anhu says: "Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam came to visit me (while I was ill). He did not come on the back of a mule, or on a Turkish horse". (i.e. He did not come on defective or an expensive conveyance, but came on foot). (TIRMIZI)

Commentary: The humbleness of Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is intended here. He did not adopt the way of the kings and the rich in using conveyance, but mostly walked. This incident is mentioned in the Bukhaari Sharif with more detail, where Sayyidina Jaabir Radiyallahu Anhu says: 'Once I became ill, Rasulullah Sallallhu Alayhi Wasallam and Abubakar (Radiyallahu Anhu) both came to visit me on foot. When they reached my home they found me unconscious. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam performed Wudu (ablution) and sprinkled the water of the Wudu on me, as a result I became conscious and saw Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam sitting before me. I asked him a question on inheritance, whereupon an Aayah on this was revealed'.
