قصة العالم و تلميذه

(قصة العالم و تلميذه)
سأل عالم تلميذه: منذ متى صحبتني؟
فقال التلميذ: منذ ثلاثة وثلاثين سنة...
فقال العالم: فماذا تعلمت مني في هذه الفترة؟!
قال التلميذ: ثمان مسائل...
قال العالم: إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون ذهب عمري معك ولم تتعلم ألا ثمان مسائل؟!
قال التلميذ: يا أستاذ لم أتعلم غيرها ولا أحب أن أكذب...
فقال الأستاذ: هات ما عندك لأسمع
قال التلميذ:
الأولى:‏أني نظرت إلى الخلق فرأيت كل واحد يحب محبوبا فإذا ذهب إلى القبر فارقه محبوبة فجعلت الحسنات محبوبي فإذا دخلت القبر دخلت معي.
الثانية:‏أني نظرت إلى قول الله تعالى: "وَأَمَّا مَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ وَنَهَى النَّفْسَ عَنِ الْهَوَى ، فَإِنَّ الْجَنَّةَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَى"‏فأجهدت نفسي في دفع الهوى حتى استقرت على طاعة الله.
الثالثة:‏أني نظرت إلى هذا الخلق فرأيت أن كل من معه شيء له قيمة حفظه حتى لا يضيع. ثم نظرت إلى قول الله تعالى: " مَا عِندَكُمْ يَنفَدُ وَمَا عِندَ اللّهِ بَاقٍ " فكلما وقع في يدي شيء ذو قيمة وجهته لله ليحفظه عنده.
الرابعة:‏أني نظرت إلى الخلق فرأيت كلا يتباهى بماله أو حسبه أو نسبه.ثم نظرت إلى قول الله تعالى: " إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ" فعملت في التقوى حتى أكون عند الله كريما.
الخامسة:‏أني نظرت في الخلق وهم يطعن بعضهم في بعض ويلعن بعضهم بعضا وأصل هذا كله الحسد.‏ثم نظرت إلى قول الله عز وجل: "نَحْنُ قَسَمْنَا بَيْنَهُم مَّعِيشَتَهُمْ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا" فتركت الحسد واجتنبت الناس وعلمت أن القسمة من عند الله فتركت الحسد عني.
السادسة:‏أني نظرت إلى الخلق يعادي بعضهم بعضا ويبغي بعضهم على بعض ويقاتل بعضهم بعضا.‏ونظرت إلى قول الله تعالى: "إِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ فَاتَّخِذُوهُ عَدُوًّا" فتركت عداوة الخلق وتفرغت لعداوة الشيطان وحده.
السابعة:‏أني نظرت إلى الخلق فرأيت كل واحد منهم يكابد نفسه ويذلها في طلب الرزق حتى انه قد يدخل فيما لا يحل له.‏ونظرت إلى قول الله عز وجل: "وَمَا مِن دَآبَّةٍ فِي الأَرْضِ إِلاَّ عَلَى اللّهِ رِزْقُهَا" فعلمت أني واحد من هذه الدواب فاشتغلت بما لله عليّ وتركت ما لي عنده.
الثامنة:‏أني نظرت إلى الخلق فرأيت كل مخلوق منهم متوكل على مخلوق مثله , هذا على ماله وهذا على ضيعته وهذا على صحته وهذا على مركزه .....‏ونظرت إلى قول الله تعالى "وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ" فتركت التوكل على الخلق واجتهدت في التوكل على الله.

(Story of Scholar and his pupil)

Scholar asked his pupil:
Since when you has been with me and learn from me?
Pupil said: Since Thirty-three years...
Professor Said: What did you learn during this period?
Pupil said: eight things...
Professor replied: "Ena Lee Allah Wa Ena Elyh Rajoon= We are Allah's "belong to GOD" and unto Him we are returning.". I wasted my life with you and you learnt only eight things!!!?.
Pupil said: Professor, I didn't learn more than these 8 things and I hate to lie.
Professor said: OK. Tell me what you learnt?.
Pupil said:
1st:
I looked at the creatures and I saw each one has a lover, but if he/she went to the grave, the lover will leave him/her. Therefore, I made my Good Deeds as my Lover, so if I went to the grave one day my good deeds will enter the grave with me.
2nd:
I looked at the words of God Almighty in the Holy Koran: "But as for him who feared to stand before his Lord and restrained his soul from lust, the Paradise will be his Home - 79:40-41". So, I worked so hard to keep myself away from my whims until I settled with obeying GOD only.
3rd:
I looked at the creatures; I saw that all those who have something valuable keep it not to be wasted. Then I looked at what God said: "That which ye have wasteth away, and that which Allah hath remaineth - 16:96". So, whenever occurred at my hands of something value, I push it to GOD to save it for me.
4th:
I looked at the creatures, I saw each one show off by his/her money or ancestry or pedigree. Then I looked at God saying: "the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct - 49:13". So, I worked so hard to be pious, so GOD will consider me a noble.
5th:
I looked at the creatures; some of them are showing enmity toward each other, some curse each other and this is all because of envy. Then I looked at God Almighty saying: "We have apportioned among them their livelihood in the life of the world - 43:32". Therefore, I left envy and hating people and learned that the livelihood is from God.
6th:
I looked at the creatures, who they are hostile to each other, showing enmity toward each other and fighting each other. Then, I looked to God saying: "The devil is an enemy for you, so treat him as an enemy - 35:6". Therefore, I left the enmity toward creatures, and considered Devil/Satan as my only enemy.
7th:
I looked at the creatures, I saw every one of them bearing and humiliating him/herself seeking of livelihood, which sometimes causes crossing the forbidden lines. I looked at what God Almighty said: "And there is not a creature in the earth but the sustenance thereof dependeth on Allah -11:6". So, I knew I am one of these creatures, so I took care of my duties and left my rights with God for Him.
8th:
I looked at all the creatures, I saw each one of them is depending on another creature. One on his money, one on his lands, one on his position…etc. Then, I saw God's saying "And whosoever putteth his trust in Allah, He will suffice him - 65:3". So, I left my depending on creatures, and I depend on my God only.
