Footprints

Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

The following is very inspirational and goes with any faith...

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path me his life there was only one set of footprints, he also noticed that it happened at the lowest and saddest times of his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you You said once I Decide to follow You, You'd walk with me all the way. But I Have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when i needed You most You would leave me. "

The Lord replied, "My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your tion of trial and depression when you only see one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you. "

Sometimes we are so quick to judge Allah yet he's always by our side!
