May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)


One rainy evening the father was driving with his son along one of the main streets of the town, taking those extra precautions needed when the roads are wet and slippery.

Suddenly, the son spoke up from his relaxed position in his seat. “Dad, I’m thinking of something.” He said.

This announcement usually meant he had been contemplating some fact for a while, and was now ready to expound all that his seven-year-old mind had discovered. Father was eager to hear. What are you thinking?” He asked.

“The rain,” he began, “is like sins, and the windshield wipers are like God wiping our sins away.”

After the chill bumps raced up the father’s arms he was able to respond. “That’s really good,” Then his curiosity broke in. How far would this little boy take this revelation? So he asked,”Do you notice how the rain keeps on coming? What does that tell you?”

His son didn’t hesitate one moment with his answer: “We keep on sinning, and God just keeps on forgiving us.”

The Father was surprised at the little boy’s deep thoughts that opened his eyes that day. He always remembered the thought whenever he turned his wipers on.
