The Sweet Shop

Once a boy went to a shop with his mother. The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed him a bottle with sweets and said 'Dear child, you can take some of these sweets,’ but the child didnt take them. The shop keeper was surprised, such a small child and why is he not taking the sweets. Again he said take the sweets. This time the mother also heard and said, ‘Darling, take the sweets.’ Yet he still didnt take any.
The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking the sweets, took the sweets and gave to them to the child. The child was happy to get two handfuls of sweets.
When they returned back home, Mother asked, ‘Why didnt you take the sweets when the shop keeper told you to?’ The child replies, ‘Mom! my hands are very small and if I take the sweets I can only take a few. But when the kind shop keeper gave with his big hands, how many more sweets I got!’

When we take we may get little but when God gives, He gives us more, beyond our expectations, more than what we can hold.
Don’t lose patience when money is hard to come by and resort to methods that are sinful. By doing so, we might earn a little money but this will be bereft of blessing and go quickly. By sticking to Halaal, we will get wealth full of blessing.
