Why was he Fired? PDF Print E-mail

There was a guy working for a multimillionaire as a house guard. One day, while the millionaire was driving out to catch an early morning flight to conclude a business deal, the guard ran out from the guard house and stopped the millionaire’s car in front of the gate.


He said ‘Sir! Are you going to board a plane?’ ‘Yes, why?’ asked the millionaire. ‘You had better cancel the trip. You see, last night I dreamt about the plane going to crash.’ Curious over the early morning fright that the guard had given him, the multi-millionaire decided to cancel his trip. ‘You better be right for this is a million dollar deal,’ he said.
The following day, there was a news report that the plane which the millionaire was supposed to take had indeed crashed. ‘Lucky I cancelled the trip’, the rich man said realizing that what the guard said had come true. He summoned the guard to see him.
When the guard was called that morning, the millionaire gave him his salary and fired him.
Question: Why did he do that? The guard saved his life.
Answer: The guard was supposed to guard the house at night not to sleep and dream!
We need to utilize our time in doing necessary things, in pleasing Allah. If we do not, we will be faced with a great shock when we are in our graves and we see that the treatment we are receiving is not what we expected. The regret felt then will make all life’s problems seem like a dream.
