بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم
There was a mushrik from Ta’if who came to Makkah and there he saw a man moving in a strange way. He was then followed by a lady and lastly, by a young boy. This man from Ta’if was a friend of al-‘Abbas رضي الله عنه (and at this time he wasn’t a Muslim) so he asked him, “Who are these people?” al-‘Abbas رضي الله عنه said, “The first man is Muhammad, the lady is Khadijah and boy was ‘Ali. Muhammad claims to be a Prophet sent by Allah.” This man just left the place. Later on became a Muslim about 20 years or so ago and used to say, “Had I become a Muslim at that time, I would have been the fourth Muslim and look at me now?!”
Lesson to be learnt from this incident:
Do not miss an opportunity for good when it is presented to you lest you might be regretful later on. Cling on to the chance of gaining hasanaat whenever you get it even if you don’t feel like doing the act it maybe that Allah سبحانه و تعالى will open for you a door to success through it which might be of great benefit in the Aakhirah and Allah سبحانه و تعالى knows best.
