really beatiful story

Why do we read Quraan, even if we can't understand a
single Arabic word?!
This is beautiful story of an old American Muslim who
lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with
his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa wakes up early and
sits at the kitchen table reading his Quraan. His grandson
wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in
every way he could.
One day the grandson asked, "Grandpa! I try to read
the Qur'an just like you but I don't understand it,
and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the
book. What good does reading the Qur'an do?"
The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the
stove and replied, "Take this coal basket down to the
river and bring me back a basket of water. "The boy
did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he
got back to the house. The grandfather laughed and said,
"You'll have to move a little faster next
time," and sent him back to the river with the basket
to try again.This time the boy ran faster, but again the
basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he
told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water
in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead. The old
man said, "I don't want a bucket of water; I want
a basket of water. You're just not trying hard
enough," and he went out the door to watch the boy try
again. At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but
he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as
fast as he could, the water would Leak out before he got
back to the house. The
boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but
when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty.
Out of breathe, hesaid, "See Grandpa, it's
useless!" "So you think it is useless?" The
old man said, "Look at the basket." The boy looked
at the basket and for the first time realized that the
basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty
old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out.
"Son, that's what happens when you read the
Qur'an. You might notunderstand or remember everything,
but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out.
That is the work of Allah in our lives.

forward it to your friends.
Prophet Muhammad ( p.b.u.h) says:
"The one who guides to good will be rewarded
