Qudsi 1 : kiddo

Narrated Abu Dhar(may Allah be pleased with him) : Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said that Allah said : He who comes with a good deed, its reward will be ten like that or even more. And he who comes with vice, his reward will be only one like that or I can forgive him. He who draws close to Me a hand's span, I will draw close to him an arm's length, I will draw near him a fathom's length. And whoever comes to Me walking, I will go to him running. And whoever faces Me with sins nearly as great as the earth, I will meet him with forgiveness nearly as great as that, provided he does not worship something with me.

(This Hadith is sound and reported by Muslim, Ibn Majah and Ahmad in his Musnad)

you maybe asking why am i puting that picture above? how is it can be related to this hadith? i will tell you the story about that kiddo above

i usually take my ablution at my house. then one day im in hurry, so just dashed down and take my ablution inside the mosque. i noticed one thing weird, why on earth there is soap here? at the ablution place.

then i saw this one kiddo around 8 or 9 years old, working as a mechanic come in. you maybe suprise right?when i said he is 9 but actually a mechanic. he is a child labour, which dont get any chance to know what book is. thats was his fate and actually i can say about 40% egyptian kids have the same fate like this kiddo.

enough with that introduction about this kiddo. then main story was during ablution. as i said before he is mechanic, please imagine how a mechanic look like, with oil all around their body. if cant imagine this. then please google about it. because why? this kiddo actually did used the soap at the ablution place to clean up all the oil at his face, hands and legs before take his ablution.

subhanallah, cant we see how hard this kiddo trying to be perfect before meet with his Creator? eventhough he have to clean up his body first, but he still come to mosque to perform solat al-jama'ah. so now try reflect it on us, can we be like this kid? who practically dont really have any future other than be a mechanic for the rest of his life, but still remember his Master and thankful to Him. on the other side, we who have everything and dont have to clean up our body from all those oily stuff, just go to the toilet and do ablution then perform solat.its so hard because some of us tend to leave im really touched with this kid. hopefully there will always Allah in his heart.

the conclusion is, no matter who we are, if we move a step towards Him, insyaAllah He will pay you back with things that you cant even imagine.
