A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called for an urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor.
Once seeing him, the dad yelled:
“Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger?
Don’t you have the sense of responsibility?”
The doctor smiled and said:
“I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you calm down so that I can do my work”
“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If
your son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily
The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what God said in His Holy Book… “Indeed we belong to God and indeed to Him we will return”. Doctor cannot prolong lives”
“Giving advice when we’re not concerned is so easy, murmured the father
The surgery took some hours after which thedoctor came out happy,
“Thank God, your son is saved!”
And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running “If you have any questions, ask the nurse, please!”
“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait for some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when he saw the nurse minutes after the doctor left.
The nurse answered, tears coming down her face:
“His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”
Never judge anyone…..because you never
know how their life is & what they’re going through !!!
