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 "
"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)"
