Real beautiful story

This is great, take a moment to read it,
it will make our day.
The ending will surprise you Take Qur-an:

A wealthy man and his son loved to collect rare works of art.
They had
everything in their collection, from Picasso to Raphael.
They would often sit together and admire the great
works of art.
When the Vietnam conflict broke out, the son went to war.
He was very courageous and died in battle while rescuing another soldier.
The father was notified and grieved deeply for his only son.
About a month later, just before eedil -kareem,
there was a knock at the door.
A young man stood at the door with a large package in his hands.
He said, "Sir, you don't know me,
but I am the soldier for whom your son
gave his life.
He saved many lives that day, and he was carrying me to
safety when a bullet struck him in the heart and he died instantly.
He often talked about you,and your love for art."
The young man held out this
"I know this isn't much. I'm not really a great artist,
but I think your son would have wanted you to have this."
The father opened the package. It was a portrait of his son,
by the young man.
He stared in awe at the way the soldier had captured the
personality of his son in the painting.
The father was so drawn to the eyes that his own eyes welled up with tears.
He thanked the young man and
offered to pay him for the picture.
"Oh, no sir, I could never repay what your son did for me.
It's a gift."
The father hung the portrait over his mantle.
Every time visitors came to
his home he took them to see the
portrait of his son before he showed them
any of the other great works he had collected.
The man died a few months later.
There was to be a great auction of his
paintings Many influential people gathered,
excited over seeing the great
paintings and having an opportunity to purchase
one for their collection.
On the platform sat the painting of the son.
The auctioneer pounded his
"We will
start the bidding with this picture of the son.
Who will bid for this picture?"
There was silence.
Then a voice in the back of the room shouted,
"We want to see the famous paintings! Skip this one."
But the auctioneer persisted.
"Will somebody bid for this painting.
Who will start the bidding? $100, $200?"

Another voice angrily.
"We didn't come to see this painting.
We came to
see the Van Goghs,the Rembrandts.
Get on with the real bids!"

But still the auctioneer continued.
"The son! The son!

Who'll take the son?"
Finally, a voice came from the very back of the
It was the longtime gardener of the man and his son.
"I'll give $10 for the painting.
" Being a poor man, it was all he could afford.

"We have $10, who will bid $20?"
"Give it to him for $10. Let's see the
"$10 is
the bid, won't someone bid $20?"
The crowd was becoming angry.
They didn't want the picture of the son.
They wanted the more worthy investments for their collections.
The auctioneer pounded the gavel.
"Going once, twice, SOLD for $10!"

A man sitting on the second row shouted,
"Now let's get on with the collection!"
The auctioneer laid down his gavel.
"I'm sorry, the auction is over."
"What about the paintings?"
"I am sorry. When I was called to conduct this auction,
I was told of a
secret stipulation in the will.
I was not allowed to reveal that stipulation until this time.
Only the painting of the son would be auctioned.
Whoever bought that painting would inherit the entire estate,
including the
The man who took the son gets everything!"
Allah gave
His Qur-an hundred of years ago to guide us.
Much like the auctioneer,
His message today is: "The Qur-an, the Qur-an, who'll take the
Because, you see, whoever takes the Qur-an gets everything.
Please send this to ten people and back to the one who sent it to you
n u shall b blessed but if u dont nothing will happen2u.

Glory be to Allah!!
Do whatever you like, but remember that maybe "one" of the people you
might have taken the time to send this to,
may be just the person who needs to
hear this message. You have a choice to make."
