My goats got stolen

Q: I have been rearing goats since 1992.I bought just two goats in 1992 and then they became 75 in 2013. I used to slaughter a male goat in the name of Allah after every 15 to 20 days. I sold many goats on every Eid. I enjoyed doing this business because it was the first business of our holy prophet peace be upon him. On the night of 30th June some men entered my premises at about 9.30 pm and they captured my chokidar and labour. They were at my farm all night.They called a big vehicle at about 1 pm and then took away my 50 goats. I am very depressed. Do you have any solution for me?


A: May Allah Ta`ala give you a better replacement. Many a times these minor trials come around to save you from bigger calamities. Turn to Allah Ta`ala. His treasures have no limits.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
