In Search of The Nur

A friend of mine shared a rather interesting story and I would like to share it with all of you :). So here goes...

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the Barber begin to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about many things on various topics. When they eventually touched on the subject of Allah, the barber said

"I don't believe that Allah exists."

"Why do you say that?" asked the customer.

"Well, you just have to go out on the streets to realize that Allah doesn't exist. Tell me, if Allah exist, would there be abandoned children? If Allah exist, would there be so many sick people? If Allah existed. there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine a loving Allah who would allow all of these things."

The customer thought for a moment but didn't respond because he didn't want to start an argument. The barber finished his job and thr customer leaves the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the streets with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkempt.

The customer turned back an entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber.

"You know what? Barbers do not exist."

"How can you say that?" asked the surprised barber. "I am here, and I am a barber. I just worked on you!".

"No!" the customer exclaimed. "Barbers don't exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside."

"Ah, but barbers DO exist! What happens is people do not come to me."

"Exactly!" affirmed the customer. "That's the point! Allah too, DOES exist! What happens is people don't go to Him and do not look for Him "
