Bed Time Story #5 : Special Helium


Hai Incik Bloggie!

Malam ni ada satu kisah yg Iollss pernah terbaca from buku '7 Formula of Excellent Individuals'. It was a present I got from UiTM Segamat Dihatiku...gittewww...

Something to ponder before we go to sleep...


One day, a child saw an old man selling a ballon that could soar high up in the air. He was fascinated so, the next day he bought himself a simple balloon and inflated it, with the hope that his balloon would also soar. Alas, the balloon, along with his hopes went crashing to the ground. So, he went to see the old man and asked about the secret of his balloons. "It's easy," answered the old man. "The difference is in the inner part. You use air from your lungs but I use helium!".

Thus, this is the distinction between humans. Externally, we may look the same but internally, each individual is unique. It is the internally aspect that determines whether an individual crashes down into the valley of disgrace or soars high up towards greatness. To 'fly' towards greatness, humans need a special 'helium'. This 'helium' is takwa. In the chapter al-Hujurat, verse 13, Allah says, "O mankind! We have created you from a male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has Takwa. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware."


Kind of reminder to myself.

That all utk malam ni. Hope lepas ni ada masa lagi untuk acah-acah 'Bed Time Story' di sini. May Allah guide and show us the right path. May Allah ease our journey too.

Selamat malam dunia penuh pancaroba.

Till we meet again Incik Bloggie!
