A doctor entered the Faisalabad hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call ASAP (As Soon as Possible), changed his clothes & went directly to the surgery room.
He found the boy’s father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor.
On seeing him, the dad yelled: “Why did you take all this time to come?
Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger?
Don’t you have any sense of responsibility?”
The doctor smiled & said: “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital & I came as fast as I could after receiving the call……
And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”
“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down?
If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily.
The doctor smiled again & replied, “If you don’t mind I tell you that in Holy Qur’an second Surah verse 155th it says “INNA LILLAAHI WA INNA ILAYHI RAAJI’OON (To Allah we belong and to Him is our return).
It means …whatever we have is not really ours. It belongs to Allah. Take a look around you; everything you see, all that you have and all that there is….in you, on you, around you….belongs to Allah, alone.
Your son that He blessed you with is Allah’s property. Just make do’a (prayer) so that Allah will save the soul of your beloved son.
“Giving advises when we’re not concerned is so easy” Murmured the father.
The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, “MashaAllah! Subhanallah! Allahu Akbar! Your son is saved!” And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any questions, ask the nurse!!”
“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.
The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was at the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”
