Allah never promised this life would be easy, but He did promise that He would be with you every step of the way. "And He is with you wherever you are" (57:4) - The following is a touching story about a new Muslim and his mother. Before he was a muslim, he lived with his mother until he was about 18 years old. Then he moved out his home and lived in a different place on his own During those days, he met some Muslims and became a very close friend of them. Eventually he himself became a Muslim after learning about the beautiful religion of Islam from them. He made an effort every day, he came to learn about the benefits of being good to one's parents. He learned that a person who looks at his parents with the eyes of obedience gets the reward of one accepted Hajj! After knowing this he decided to visit for mother whom he did not visit for many years. He bought some flowers & fruits for her on his way. His mother was very pleased to see him after so long. He started spending lots of time with her mother on a regular basis. During his visits, he would stare at his mother & tears would roll down from his eyes. The mother noticed this happening many times & asked him one day the reason why he visits her so much all of a sudden & why he cries. He told her about how he became a Muslim & that the position of a mother in Islam is very high. He also told her about the reward he gets for looking at her. But while looking at her, he cries because the mother is not a Muslim and would not be able to save herself if she dies in this state. The mother immediately recognized the beauty of Islam and became a Muslim. SubhanAllah! So beautiful. The best dawah is your manners. The best naseeha is your example. Spread the beauty of Islam by living it, as an example for others to follow.
