A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects.
Having a chat on random 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 in the street to realize that Allah doesn’t exist. You people say HE is so merciful, compassionate and kind and fate is in HIS hands. .Tell me, if Allah exists, would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If Allah existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can’t imagine a loving an 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 the customer left the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkempt.
The customer turned back and 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. And 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. ALLAH exists !!!! ”
He is kind, merciful and compassionate, but the problem is with us, we are so busy in our worldly matters that we do not have time to ask for HIS mercy and kindness. And then we say, we do not find any signs of existence of ALLAH.
“Verily there are signs for those who reflect!”
