A Unique take on Forgiveness

One rainy afternoon I was driving along one of the main streets of town, taking those extra precautions necessary when the roads are wet and slick.

Suddenly, my daughter, spoke up from her relaxed position in her seat. “Dad, I’m thinking of something.”

This announcement usually meant she had been pondering some fact for a while, and was now ready to expound all that her six-year-old mind had discovered. I was eager to hear. What are you thinking?” I asked.

“The rain,” she began, “is like sin, and the windshield wipers are like Allah wiping our sins away.”

After the chill bumps raced up my arms I was able to respond. “That’s really good,” Then my curiosity broke in. How far would this little girl take this revelation? So I asked…
 “Do you notice how the rain keeps on coming? What does that tell you?”

She didn’t hesitate one moment with her answer: “We keep on sinning, and Allah just keeps on forgiving us.”

I will always remember this whenever I turn my wipers on.

  1. Alhamdoulillah, What a brillant observation. Children are masoom, at times they deliver to us facts which we ourselves do not notice. Insha Allah this child will go a long way.

  2. Masha Allah what as smart girl, if only we contemplated on everything we saw.
    truly nature points to Allah. I still cant believe the girl came up with that she’s so unique for her age to be thinking like that and may Allah make her and her family the people of jannah ameen
