Islamic anedotes

Once Haroon Rashid and his wife Zubaida khatoon together,  went out for a walk. They were walking along the river bank. Haroon Rashid found Hazrat Behlol Dana ra making some sandcastles. Haroon Rashid found it amusing and decided to ask him.

Haroon: Behloul! What are you making?

Behloul: I’m making sandcastles.

Haroon: Why are you making them?

Behloul: Whosoever buys them, I will pray that, Allah grants them a house in jannah.

Haroon: And what’s the price?

Behloul: 1 Dinar!

Haroon Rashid knew about the nature of Behloud and thought that it was another sort of hallucination or a child’s play that was going on there. So he continued his stroll.

After sometime Zubaida khatoon walked past Behloul.

She: what are you doing Behloud?

Behloul: I’m making sandcastles.

She: Why are you making them?

Behloul: Whosoever buys them, I will pray that, Allah grants them a house in jannah.

She: And what’s the price?

Behloul: 1 Dinar!

She: Take one dinar, I’m buying one.

That night Haroon Rashid had a dream .He was in jannah and saw a beautiful palace there. Whole of the palace was carved out of a diamond, it had the plaster of musk. He went close to the palace and found his wife’s name on the nameplate. He desired to go in but was stopped by an angel.

Haroon: why are you stopping me?

Angel: Are you Zubaida khatoon?

Haroon: No!
Angel: we have a rule here ‘the person who owns the palace enters the palace!’

Haroon woke up and recollected his mistake.

Next morning he went out in search of the Behloul, hoping that today also he will be building those castles.

To his merriment, Behloul was doing the same. Haroon went to him sure of the fact that today he will seal a great deal.

Haroon: What are you doing?

Behloul: I’m making sandcastles.

Haroon: Why are you making them?

Behloul: Whosoever buys them, I will pray that, Allah grants them a house in jannah.

Haroon: And what’s the price?

Behloul: Whole Earth as my kingdom.

Haroon: Yesterday it was 1 Dinar and today it’s the whole Earth as your kingdom!?

Behloul: yesterday you were playing blind but today you’re all aware!

This is the condition of this world and the hereafter. At the time of death everyone is shown the heaven and the hell, even Firaon said ” I believe in the Lord of Haroon and Musa a.s” at his deathbed!
