Bahlul and the Prison's Keys
Bahlul kept on begging Haroon to play with the prison keys. To stop him from asking any further Haroon allowed Bahlul to take them. A couple of hours later the guards rushed to Haroon, informing him that all the prisoners have been released. Haroon went looking for Bahlul ,he found him sitting in the graveyard. Bahlul began apologizing and asked Haroon for forgiveness. Haroon’s replay was :” The only way I’ll forgive you is if you bring all the prisoners back”. Bahlul replied :” then lets stay in this Grave Yard there will be a day when all of them will come here”. Showcasing to Haroon that this life is finite and that we will all return to our lord.
