A Very Subtle Message

watayo faqir

FAQEER WATAYO is a Sindhi folklore character.

On a very cold night his mother said:

“Wataya! You are close to Allah. It’s very cold tonight, can’t you ask Allah to spare a little bit of fire from hell to keep poor people like us warm here?”

Said Watayo – “Amma,There is no fire in hell. Everyone has to bring his own.”

This beautiful and meaningful message was shared via email by my dear friend, Dr Syed Ghulam Nazre Ather, who often shares such words of wisdom. Thank you so much sir, for this wonderful and insightful message !
