I know a Little Boy who makes Dua like he means it!

So Every time this kid wanted something, his parents would say Ask Allah and then they would secretly get him what he wanted. The little boy kept praying.

This one time he wanted a back-hoe (picture for reference) but he didn’t just want ANY back-hoe, he wanted one with a front bucket, back bucket, stabilizing hands AND with sounds AND for Eid!

Dad looked everywhere for it but it wasn’t available anywhere. Amazon, Toy Stores, China, marketplace! Eid was just around the corner and the backhoe was nowhere to be found!

The little boy had seen it in a magazine, circled it on the magazine and told mom he did it so it would be easy for Allah mian to know which one EXACTLY he wants 😂

And mom would hear him at random times making the ENTIRE DUA “Back-hoe with front bucket, back bucket, stabilizing arms, and sound Allah miaaaannnn” – pointing at the circled magazine and calling on Allah mian, some times loudly, sometimes softly.

But mom and dad couldn’t find it anywhere! Dad kept trying & mom said:-

“You know what, this is between him and Allah mian. Not my problem anymore” – yet secretly slightly worried about her kid’s heart breaking.

So Eid arrived. The boy got a lot of gifts but there was no backhoe! He got some money as Eidi, which then he convinced his dadi to take with him to the toystore. Dad already checked online and the backhoe wasn’t available in that store either! But this little boy still convinced his dadi to take him. Eid day had almost passed, Mom & Dad knew he was going to come back with a broken heart. But the boy was adamant and sure!

And off those two went. And lo and behold! One last piece, on the highest Rack, barely visible to people, stood the glorious back hoe, with front and back buckets, stabilizing arms AND sound!

Exactly as the boy had asked!

We tell our kids to pray but we ourselves don’t believe in the power of Dua as we ought to!Though once upon a time, we had the belief of children!

But life happened & the world hardened us and we forgot!

And in losing the belief that our Duas work, we lost something even more precious! Our conversations with Him. The one True friend we had!

For you see Dua is about the connection, the conversation! Remember Moosa a.s? How he prolonged his conversation with Allah swt? He was talking about his sheep and his stick with the King of all the worlds? You would think he would talk more philosophical things? Ask about quantum theory, Creation of the universe, mysteries unraveled to man.

But no he was talking about sheep and sticks! Cz he didn’t want the conversation to end!

Talk to Allah, your friend, wali, protector, guardian just like a child would! And teach your kids as well! Remember first you teach kids and then they teach you.

I know! Cz I know a little boy who knows how to make Dua like he means it!
