Event in English
A young man used to respect his parents and was always engaged in their service. When the parents became old enough, his brothers suggested that why not divide their property during the lifetime of the parents so that there would be no quarrel later. The young man said that you should divide the property among yourselves and in return entrust me with the work of serving your parents. The other brothers willingly entrusted this work to him. This young man would work hard all day and then come home and spend the rest of the time serving his parents and taking care of his wife and children. Time passed until his parents passed away.
Once this young man was sleeping at night when he dreamed that someone was saying to him, O young man! You have done good to your parents, kept them satisfied and happy, you will be rewarded in return. Go, there is a dinar lying under such a rock, pick it up. It has been blessed for you. When this young man woke up in the morning, he went under the rock and found a dinar lying there. He took the dinar and went home happily.
