The bar soap container

This Eid I travelled with my family & some friends to Taba at the Southern of Sinai; it's really a great place with wonderful attractions. We went hiking & climbed an extremely high mountain where we got to see the borders of Palestine, Jordan & Saudi Arabia from the peak.

At the hotel while packing our bags at the end of the trip, one of my relatives entered the bathroom to check his stuff. He liked this soap container at the basin. It was rounded & with holes in the middle to prevent water from accumulating around the soap & dissolving it. He thought the hotel definitely had a lot of them & it won't matter if he took it with him home. After all, it's not expensive & it's made of plastic, plus the house keepers are used to finding missing stuff so they'll replace it shortly. He stared at it again, but hesitated & immediately left the hotel room.

Three hours later in the bus heading to Cairo…

The phone rang.

"Good afternoon Mr. A, this is your boss's office & he'll be with you in a minute."….

"Hello Mr. A, I hope you had a great holiday. Guess what, you earned a bonus this month…"

It was totally unexpected!!!

What can I say!!

وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُ مَخْرَجاًّ(2) وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ
لاَ يَحْتَسِبُ "
سورةالطلاق_ 2,3

"And whoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty).(2). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine.(3)"
At Talaaq_2,3

that's so endearing. really!
Hania, I am thinking of writing my book...I guess it became way easier now than before, we can publish our books online since the publishers in Egypt are abusers already. so I don't know,
I like discussing my writing issues with you. lol!

Dina "Go...Go...GO!!" have u prepared an interesting topic? yea, i hear a lot about publishers' ugly side here. so either we can publish online or self publish :D
but still online reading is not that popular in Egypt; we love to hold books n' read them in bed.
but for the first book it's a good idea. I'll pray for u :)
N' wait for mine some day.

the other very important lesson from this is that we have to think in allah b4 doing any thing, we have to put allah infront of us in each & every thing we do.
