This story is quite well known for some…
At one day, a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The farmer panicked and don’t know what to do. The animal cried piteously for hours, as the farmers didn’t found any good way to retrieve it. Feeling despair, he decided to just kill the animal because it was already old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway. The farmer felt it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.
Then the farmer invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.
As the farmer’s neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!
Moral of the story: Life is going to shovel dirt on us, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up. Never lose hope and place your complete confidence and 100% trust in Almighty Allah (SWT). A true Muslim never gives up hope in the mercy of Allah (SWT), because it is a sin as per the Teachings of Islam. Also remember: “Even the word ‘IMPOSSIBLE’ says ‘I M POSSIBLE’.”
