Power Of Hope|قدرت امید


Once again I would like to share an advisory tale from my childhood.

There was a little part of the world where many animals lived close to each other peacefully.

They had a small pond in the area where they shared water for drinking, washing and cooling down.

The weather was getting warmer every day. As a result, the pond’s water was evaporating and there was no rain to replace it for months.

The situation was getting a little scary and it starting to concern the animals, so they gathered to talk about the problem. There really wasn’t anything they could do but hope and pray for rain.

Everyone was getting sad and depressed. They were losing hope.

One of the animals suggested if one animal climbed the big hill every day, they would be able to see if any clouds were coming from afar. If that animal saw a cloud, he should jump up and down on the hill and bring hope to others.

The next day, a horse climbed up the hill but there wasn’t even a tiny bit of cloud far in the sky. He came down so sadly. The day following, a cow went up the hill and saw nothing.

Day after day one animal after another came down without any signs of a cloud. Time was passing and the animals were on the verge of giving up.

It was the goat’s turn to climb the hill.

When he didn’t see any clouds far in the sky, he got very disappointed but started to jump up and down on top of the hill and continued all the way to the bottom hill with joy and happiness.

On the way down the goat begged God to forgive him for lying, and asked God to please send rain to not let the animals lose hope.

All the other animals started to jump up and down and became so happy. They started celebrating. The goat was satisfied that he caused happiness, but he was worried that there was going to be no rain at all.

The weather was getting almost dark when they all felt the wind and white and grey clouds coming towards them.

Lots of rain poured that night and many nights after that.
