The Poor Boy.
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his school fee, found he had only one thin dime( a United States coin worth one tenth of a dollar) left, and he was hungry.
He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?"
"You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness." He said..... "Then I thank you from my heart."
Year's later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were confused. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in a specialist to study her rare disease. After a long struggle, the battle was won, and she was cured. Finally the hospital sent the final bill to specialist for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent back.
When she got the bill, she feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill.
She read these words..... "Paid in full with one glass of milk"

Tears of joy flooded her eyes.SubhanAllah!!!
"Those who are kind and considerate to Allah's creatures, Allah bestows His kindness and affection on them. Show kindness to the creatures on the earth so that Allah may be kind to you."
(Hadith - Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)
Narrated ‘Aishah: Allah’s Messenger said, “Allah is Kind and He loves kindness, and confers upon kindness which He does not confer upon severity, and does not confer upon any thing besides it (kindness).” (Muslim)
