This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead.

The old man said, "I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You're just not trying hard enough," and he went out of the door to watch the boy try again.

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back o the house.

The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty.

Out of breath, he said, "See Baba, it's useless!"

"So you think it is useless?" The old man said, "Look at the basket."

The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out.

"Son, that's what happens when you read the Quran. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of God in our lives."

"We forget that forgiveness is greater than revenge. People make mistakes. We are allowed to make mistakes. But the actions we take while in a rage will haunt us forever.

Pause and ponder. Think before you act. Be patient. Forgive & forget. Love one and all.

If you judge people, you have no time to love them". - Mother Teresa

Never take some one for granted,Hold every person Close to your Heart because you might wake up one day and realise that you have lost a diamond while you were too busy collecting stones."

Very nice story with many messages.....

Its very odd when we cannot forgive other and want others to forgive us for our mistakes... its an old saying that "everyone cannot forgive but the strong people are the one who can forgive and forget"

We can judge others and point out their mistakes but why cant we judge ourself and correct our mistakes???
Its easy to throw stones at others but a small stone hurts us.. it pains like anything but still we don't understand the pain others feel when we throw stones at others.
First we need to make ourself perfect and then point out others mistakes.

regards,
Sonal

Too Good.. We should keep checking our deeds and their influence on others - positive or negative. And if are deeds are having a positive effect we should continue them and discard the negatives if any. And also we should accept that patience is a virtue and also a scarce commodity with many of us. We all should be patient enough not to miss hidden opportunities or inherent lessons in every situation.

Nice post Pradeep.

Sri Manjari .V
