One old man, was, once was traveling and needed to stay somewhere overnight.
When he went to the masjid, the guard denied him
the old man tried numerous
times, but the guard did not accept his
requests. Frustrated, he resolved to spend the night in the masjid
yard. The guard became furious and dragged him away, despite the old age and
frailty of this old man .
A baker, whose shop was
nearby, watched this scene and took pity on the old man and invited him to
stay with him for the night.
While there, the old man noticed
that the baker continually made istighfar (asking for Allah’s forgiveness)
while working, and in the morning, the old man eagerly asked his host about the
latter’s continual seeking of forgiveness. The baker said it had become like
second nature, and the old man then asked whether the baker had experienced any
reward from this practice(Making lots of istighfaar).
The baker answered, By Allah!
No duaa (supplication to God) I made except that it was answered but one.(All
his duaas were answered except one dua!)
And what is that duaa? asked the old man.
To be able to see the famous Imam Ahmed ibn Hanbal!
the old man interjected ", He is standin in front of you(it's me) !
He then went on to add:By Allah! I was dragged to your
place so that you can have your dua come true!!
( because imam ahmed was literaly
being dragged away from the masjid towards the baker)
