Story of a young man, who talked in the grave


Be pious is perfect in every period of life. However it even more beautiful in the youth. The reward for those who despite the strength, youth and beauty beware of sin is eternal happiness. If a person will not sell it to the devil period of life, when he is in a dawn of the force,
he will be one step closer to the eternal spring.

During the reign of Caliph Umar (may Allah be pleased with him), a very devout worshiper youth lived.  Umar Hazrat with amazement and appreciation watched this young man. The heart of the young men was filled with love for Allah and His Messenger (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam). He was not late to the collective prescribed prayers, immediately after the prayer came home and took care of his elderly father.

The young man's journey to the house passed the door of one woman. Each time he returned, the woman turned to him with indecent proposals, but the young man because of his piety did not pay to it attention.

One day, returning home after the night prayer, a woman stood up in front of him again.  At this time, using all her charms, she managed to trick the young man. But the young man following the woman in her house, thought of God and the fear of his mouth sounded the following verse:

"Indeed, those who fear Allah - when an impulse touches them from Satan, they remember [Him] and at once they have insight". (A'raf: 201)

And then, he immediately fainted. Woman called her maid.  They, taking the lad by the hand, led to home and left the front door.
Then after knocking on the door, they informed his father.  Outside, the young man's father saw that his son lying before the doors without feelings. Some of the neighbors moved a young man into the house.  After a long fainting young man regained consciousness. Father asked him:

- What happened, son?

The son answered:

- Nothing special.

The father said:

For the sake of Allah, tell me what happened.

After that, the boy told his father what had happened to him.

Father asked:

- What the verse did you read?

The young man read this verse and again lost consciousness. When looked at his condition, it turned out that the young man gave his soul in this time. The young man was washed and buried at night in tears.  In the morning Caliph Umar is aware of it. Umar Hazrat went to the boy and his father expressing his condolences, said:

- Why was I not informed about this?

The young man's father answered:

- O Commander of the Faithful, was late at night.

- Lead us to his grave - said Umar Hazrat.

Umar Hazrat and accompanying young men came to the grave of the young man.

Umar Hazrat (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

- Oh so! But for he who has feared the position of his Lord are two gardens. (Rahman: 46)

The young man in the grave replied:

- O Umar! My God in heaven has given them to me twice.
