Why you need to Be CONSISTENT in all your dealings

There is this story told of a Moslem cleric who was deployed to a town. Soon after his arrival a string of negative occurrences took place.

First was a  ghastly accident that claimed the lives of all occupants of the vehicle but two. At the prayers for the repose of the souls of the dead, the cleric preached and ended with an admonition that sounded strange to the people that :
       "Let us thank Allah, for if it hadn't been this, it could have been worse. "

Second came a maternal mortality that claimed the lives of the prospective mother and her expected twins. Again, the cleric preached and ended with the admonition that :
         "Let us thank Allah, for if it hadn't been this, it could have been worse. "

Series occurred and the people came to a conclusion that the cleric was probably the one responsible for the mishaps befalling the town. So, they set out to test his family to see if he'll give the same admonition if confronted with the same level of calamities as others.

One day, the people poisoned some food stock they sent to him. The stock was received in his absence by his sons because he was away at a programme. Later, the younger son decided to take the Lion share of the food after preparation and this did not go down well with the elder brother and a fight broke out between the two which landed them in hospital with various degrees of injuries. The food was not even touched.

The cleric was alerted to the unfortunate incident and he hurried to the hospital. On arrival he inquired of the two what happened and after hearing both, he preached to them and turned in characteristic consistent manner that :
      "Let us thank Allah, for if it hadn't been this, it could have been worse "

The people later owned up to a crime while the cleric had justification to chant

        ALLAH AKBAR!!!

God doesn't change and he watches over his people. Stop looking for someone to blame for your woes. When confronted with a situation that is not palatable, seek God, for it is only he that can give you solutions. Man can only offer you comfort at best. Plan no evil against your brother because if God fights his case, your disgrace will be popular.

Good morning!
