My brother and I were on our way home from the hardware store when our car just began to lose power…I barely had time to steer it into the nearest driveway before it completely died. In my surprise and the shock of the moment, I didn’t expect any help for my brother in pushing the thing the rest of the way into the parking lot, and I was just praying that the people in the cars around me wouldn’t get irritated and start honking their horns at the hold-up we were causing. But, lo and behold, not 1, not 2, but three people got out of their cars to help my brother push, and only a couple people honked, probably thinking I fell asleep at the stoplight.
Alhamdulillah. You never know when Allah will place mercy in the hearts of those around you, and it usually comes from the least expected sources.
