When the thief was listening, his heart felt a thought.

Aya why not I become something that the king marry the princess with me? Got agreed in heart, Now he forgot to steal but got down to cheat. Went home and spent too long thinking about how I can succeed at this. Then a plan came to his mind that there is a mosque near the king’s palace. And if I go there and dressed in the clothes of the elders and decided to sit there engaged in worship day and night. perhaps this thing would reach the king. If there is a pious man here, who is busy worshipping Allah day and night, the eyes of the king may fall upon me and I be chosen to marry the princess. This was a very despicable and worldly aim of this thief, For whom he intended it. Then according to his program, he decided to dress up the elders, and went to this mosque and started prayers, recitation, meditation, and all. Days went by.

Who worship day and night.

Therefore the King has sent me to speak to you in this regard. This man had come here with the same desire. kept listening to the minister for a long time. Then tears rolled down his eyes, and the minister asked,

Now I don’t need anyone else after that my ALLAH is enough for me.
