  1. " THE CUP "Beautiful_teachings_of_Islam
  2. It was a festive day for the residents of the Khanqah. 

One of The disciples got married and Shah Baba gave
 a treat to all the disciples in honor of the married 
couple and his parents.After the dinner all were gathered
   In the Assembly hall Shah Baba noticed that even though
 it was a happy occasion but one of the disciple seemed
 to be very sad and disturbed.Shah Baba asked him , 
why he looked so unhappy and depressed. The boy stood 
up and said:: 
"When Allah swt. is so merciful, Rahman and Raheem,
why then so much suffering in the world, why am I having 
so many problems in my life?"asked the sad boy  who lost
 his job recently.
Shah Baba thought for a few seconds then said..

  1. God knows what He's doing (for all of us).
  2. He is the Potter, and we are His clay.
    He will mold us and make us,
    so that we may be made into a flawless piece of work
  3. to fulfill His good, pleasing, and perfect will.
  4. There was a couple who used to go to England to shop in the 
    beautiful stores.They both liked antiques and pottery and 
    especially teacups.This was their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. 
    One day in this beautiful shop they saw a beautiful teacup. 
    They said, "May we see that? We've never seen one quite so beautiful."
    As the lady handed it to them, suddenly the teacup spoke. 
    "You don't understand," it said. "I haven't always been a teacup. 
    There was a time when I was red and I was clay. 
    My master took me and rolled me and patted me over and over and
    I yelled out, 'let me alone,' but he only smiled, 
    'Not yet.'
  5. "Then I was placed on a spinning wheel," the teacup said, 
    "and suddenly I was spun around and around and around. 
    Stop it! I'm getting dizzy! I screamed. 
    But the master only nodded and said, 'Not yet.'
    "Then he put me in the oven. I never felt such heat.
    I wondered why he wanted to burn me, and I yelled and knocked at the door.
    I could see him through the opening 
    and I could read his lips as He shook his head, 'Not yet.'
    "Finally the door opened, he put me on the shelf, and I began to cool. 
    'There, that's better,' I said. 
    And he brushed and painted me all over. 
    The fumes were horrible. I thought I would gag. 
    'Stop it, stop it!' I cried. He only nodded, 'Not yet.'
    "Then suddenly he put me back into the oven, not like the first one.
    This was twice as hot and I knew I would suffocate. 
    I begged. I pleaded. I screamed. I cried. 
    All the time I could see him through the opening, 
    nodding his head saying, 'Not yet.'
    "Then I knew there wasn't any hope. 
    I would never make it. I was ready to give up. 
    But the door opened and he took me out and placed me on the shelf. 
    One hour later he handed me a mirror and said, 'Look at yourself.' And I did. 
    I said, 'That's not me; that couldn't be me. It's beautiful. I'm beautiful.'
    "'I want you to remember, then,' he said, 
    'I know it hurts to be rolled and patted, 
    but if I had left you alone, you'd have dried up.
    I know it made you dizzy to spin around on the wheel, 
    but if I had stopped, you would have crumbled. 
    I knew it hurt and was hot and disagreeable in the oven,
    but if I hadn't put you there, you would have cracked. 
    I know the fumes were bad when I brushed and painted you all over, 
    but if I hadn't done that, you never would have hardened; 
    you would not have had any color in your life. 
    And if I hadn't put you back in that second oven, 
    you wouldn't survive for very long because the hardness would not have held. 
    Now you are a finished product. 
    You are what I had in mind when I first began with you.'"

We all are beautiful and unique cups in different shapes ,

so my dear, be proud of it .
