Wonders of Allah SWT
There once was a man who was an enemy of Islam. He had three famous questions that no one could answer. No Islamic scholar in Baghdad could answer his three questions … so he made fun of Islam in public. He constantly ridiculed Islam and Muslims.
One day a young boy, who has 10 years of age, is long and heard the man yelling and screaming at Muslims in the street. It ‘was challenging people openly to answer the three questions. The boy remained silent and watched. Then he decided that he would challenge the man.
He approached the man and said: “I accept your challenge.” The man laughed at the boy and ridiculed the Muslims even more, saying: “A ten year old boy challenges me. And ‘that all you people have to offer!” But the boy patiently reiterated his position. He challenges the man, and with Allah’s help and guidance, would put this at the end.
The man finally accepted. The whole town around a small “hill” where open addresses were usually made. The Kafir climbed to the top, and asked loudly voice his first question.
“What is your God doing now?”
The little boy thought for a while ‘and then told the man to climb the hill and to allow him to climb in order to address the issue.
The man says: “What? Do you want to go down?”
The boy says, “Yes I need to answer, right?”
The man went down and the boy, 10 years, with little feet made his way up.
Answer this little girl was “Oh Allah, you be my witness in front of all these people. You have just willed that a Kafir be brought to a low level, and that a Muslim be brought to a higher level!”
The crowd applauded and shouted “Takbir “….” Allah-hu-akbar!” The man was humiliated, but he boldly asked his second question …
“What existed before your God?”
The small child thought and thought. Then the man asked to count backwards. “Count backwards from 10.” The man counted … “10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.0” The boy asked: “What comes before 0?” Man: “I know nothing …”.
The boy said: “Exactly Nothing was before Allah, for He is eternal and absolute.”.
The crowd cheered again ….” Takbir Allah-hu-akbar !”….” !!!!” The man, now completely frustrated, asked his final question.
“In which direction is your Allah facing?”
The boy thought for a while ‘. He then asked for a candle. A candle was brought to him. The blessed child handed over to the man and asked him to turn it on. The man has done and said, “What should this prove?” The boy asked, “Which way is the light / only by the candle going?” The man replied: “It’s going in all directions.”
The boy: “You have answered your question nur Allah goes in all directions, He is everywhere There is no where that He can not be found ….
“The crowd cheered again ….” Takbir !”….” Allah-hu-akbar! ”
The man was so impressed and moved by the boy’s knowledge and spirituality, who converted to Islam and became a murid (student) of the boy. So ended the debate.
Who was the boy? The boy was one of our leaders and one of the greatest scholars, Imam Abu Haneef (may Allah bless him and sanctify his secrets).
