Cerita Sebuah Bakul

Message: the reason...why should we recite AL-quran
although we hardly
understand them??

An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the
mountains of eastern Kentucky
with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa
up early sitting at the
kitchen table reading his Quraan.

His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried
to imitate him in every
way he could.

One day the grandson asked, "Grandpa, I try to
read the Quraan just like
you but I don't understand it, and what I do
understand I forget as soon as
I close the book.
What good does reading the Quraan do?"

The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal
in the stove and replied,
"Take this coal basket down to the river and bring
me back a basket of

The boy did as he was told, but all the water
leaked out before he got
back to the house.
The grandfather laughed and said, "You'll have to
move a little faster next
time," and sent
him back to the river with the basket to try again.

This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket
was empty before he
returned home.
Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was
impossible to carry
water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket

The old man said, "I don't want a bucket of water;
I want a basket of
You're just not trying hard enough," and he went
out the door to watch the
boy try again.

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but
he wanted to show his
grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he
could, the water would leak
before he got back to the house.

The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran
hard, but
when he reached his grandfather the basket was
again empty.

Out of breath, he said, "See Grandpa, it's useless!"

"So you think it is useless?" The old man said,
"Look at the

The boy looked at the basket and for the first
time realized
that the basket was different. It had been
transformed from a dirty old
coal basket and was now clean, inside and out.

"Son, that's what happens when you read the
Quraan. You might not
understand or remember everything, but when you
read it, you
will be changed, inside and out. That is the work
of Allah in our lives."
