The more we know, the more we love - A beautiful story about Quran (4)
You observe the rights of Allah and Allah will preserve you.
Today I am very happy to share with you something beautiful about The Qur’an, before I mention the story I want you to pay attention to this fact: when we recite The Qur’an we shouldn’t forget the honor that Allah has privileged us with, when you are reciting Qur’an you are in fact uttering the same words Allah Himself uttered, Allah with His Greatness, with His infinite Mercy, Knowledge, Power and Might spoke these words and you are uttering them now. What a wonderful honor that no other creation has been granted!
The story I am about to share with you was actually narrated by Shaikh Muhammad Hassan because he heard it directly from the person it happened to who was a surgeon.
The surgeon says: “One day I was meant to perform this surgery on an old man, this old man there was so much light coming out of his face, he has a beautiful white beard, I could see he was a righteous man, as I approached him to brief him about the surgery and calm him down, the elderly man started weeping so I tried to calm him down, I said you know uncle, it is going to be an easy operation Insha’Allah, Allah will take care of you, we’ll do our best, the old man said: “I’m not worried about the surgery I’m not even worried about death if Allah takes my soul Alhamdulillah that’s the decree of Allah, but what I am really worried about is that every day I recite five Juz’ of The Qur’an, this is a practice I have never broken in my life and I am afraid that under the effect of the anesthetics I won’t be able to recite, this is why I am weeping! And after some discussion the man came up with a suggestion he said: “Don’t inject me with the anesthetics until I have started reciting Qur’an.” The man did start reciting The Qur’an then they injected him with the antithetic and guess what! To their surprise the man was still reciting! They performed the surgery and the man was still reciting the words of Allah until he finished five Juz’, the surgeon says: “I couldn’t believe myself this is a miracle taking place in front of my eyes, this man is unconscious and he is reciting Qur’an, I called out other surgeons in order to see this miracle the man finished five Juz’ while he was under the state of anesthetics.”
This reminds me of the Hadith of the prophet peace be upon him: “You observe the rights of Allah and Allah will preserve you.” [Reported by At-Tirmidhi and authenticated by Al-Albani]
