Will to a son from his father – A true story..
A Saudi man married a Philippine woman secretly. As he was already married and also had children with the first wife, so when he got sick and dying, he assembled his children for the purpose of reading his Will and told his eldest son: “I had secretly married a Philippine woman sometime ago. When I die, take care of her and also give her he right in my Will.”
He also gave him the address of the place where they lived.
When the man died after a few days, his son went to the judge and told him everything in detail. The judge stopped the decision and ordered to have the Philippine woman to be present before him. So the son went to the address his father had given. He reached that street where she lived with a lot of difficulty.
The woman who was the wife of his late father, figured who he was at the first glance and told him that she was the woman he was looking for and she already knew that her husband was dead. The son also gave her all the details and convinced her to take her with him to Saudi Arabia. He took his second mother straight to the judge. Subsequently, the judge decided that she be granted a share of the Will – 8 SR million(Saudi Riyal). The judge also told the son to take her to perform the Umrah and then to take her back to the Phillipines. The elder son did exactly what the judge ordered.
After four years of this incident, the son went again to the Philippines to meet his second mother and to know how she was doing. He was shocked when he got there. He asked her that despite getting this huge amount granted to her in the Will, yet she was still living in that weary old house.
Reward in the Life Hereafter…
His mother held his hand and took him to a place where a big building was found. There was an Orphanage and an Institute for Tahfiz Al Quran.
She said to the son: “Look above to that board.” The son broke into tears to see that the name of his father was written on that board !
His mother then told him: “I have donated the money I got from the Will of your late father to this institute. In this way, I believe he will keep getting rewarded due to this institute.”
This was true love. She could make a big, excellent house with that money but she chose not to. She thought what was the value of her love for her husband in comparison with a big and beautiful house which was just a temporary thing. This Islamic Institute will benefit her husband and herself in the Life Hereafter, Inn Sya Allah.
When the son came back from the Philippines, he told his fellow brothers about that institute. All the brothers stayed up all night and kept thinking about it. Eventually, they collected donations together; and just in one night, they had collected 5SR million for that institute which bore their father’s name that their second mother had built on the basis of that unconditional love she had for her husband.
(This incident has also been published in the Saudi newspapers).
The children of rich people normally wait for their parents to die to get the money from their Will. And the ones who truly love their parents only think about sending them reward in the life hereafter.
