Harga Segelas Susu | Paid in full with one glass of milk




السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته


Banyak versi, isinya sama, tak lari.
Jadi, copy & paste jea.

AMARAN : Air mata anda mungkin menitis. Mungkin ?



Versi bahasa ( some changes are made to make it more Islamic ) :

Seorang budak lelaki miskin berjalan dari rumah ke rumah untuk menjaja kerepak yang diusahakan oleh ibunya. Menjelang tengah hari, dia sudah berasa lapar, namun tidak mahu pulang selagi belum habis jualannya. Bagi menghilangkan rasa lapar, dia meminta segelas air dari sebuah rumah berdekatan.
"Kakak, boleh berikan saya segelas air?"

Direnung wajah budak yang kelihatan lesu dan sayu itu.

"Tunggu sebentar ya."

Seketika kemudian wanita itu keluar dengan segelas susu di tangannya. Budak itu terus minum tanpa berlengah.

"Berapa ya saya berhutang dengan kakak?" katanya sambil menyeluk saku poketnya.

"Tak perlu bayar."

"Tetapi saya hanya minta air kosong. Emak saya ajar, jangan ambil apa-apa daripada orang lain tanpa bayaran."

"Kalau begitu bayarlah dengan ucapan 'alhamdulillah' dan terima kasih."

"Okey, alhamdulillah. Terima kasih kakak!"

Budak tersebut segera beredar kembali menjaja kerepeknya. Entah bagaimana, dia terasa begitu bertenaga dan penatnya hilang. Bukan semata-mata kerana segelas susu itu, malah lebih dariapda itu, kerana sifat pemurah wanita itu walaupun ia tidak mengenalinya.

Beberapa tahun berlalu, wanita tersebut diserang penyakit serius. Dia dirawat di hospital di bandar tersebut, dengan kelelolaan doktor pakar.

Rupa-rupanya doktor pakar yang merawat wanita itu adalah budak lelaki yang pernah diberikan segelas susu kepadanya suatu waktu dahulu. Si doktor masih mengenali wajah wanita itu, wlaaupun sudah berusia.

Doktor muda itu berusaha merawat wanita itu sehingga sembuh. Malah bil hospital pun ditanggungnya. Setelah wanita tersebut sihat sepenuhnya, tiba kepadanya sekeping bil hospital. 

Di atas bil itu tertulis:

"Bil ini telah dijelaskan dengan segelas susu. Alhamdulillah dan terima kasih - Dr. Muhammad."

English version :

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.” He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Year’s later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words:

“Paid in full with one glass of milk”

Signed, Dr. Howard Kelly.

Pengajaran: Walaupun kecil bantuan yang dihulurkan namun disertai dengan ikhlas, impaknya tidak terjangkau oleh imaginasi kita. Hakikatnya bantuan ALLAH sering ada dimana-mana, dalam pelbagai bentuk dan kadang-kadang disampaikan melalui perantaraan orang yang berada berdekatan kita. 

P/s : Yeap, Dr.Howard Kelly. A true story from Howard Kelly, one of four co-founders of John Hopkins, the first medical research university in the U.S.
