Blindness of the Heart is real blindness

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalamualaikum w.b.t

     "There was a blind man who lived happily with his loving wife, his devoted son and his good friend. The only thing that bothered him was the darkness in which he lived. He wished that he could see the light and the things that made him happy with his own eyes.

     A brilliant doctor came to the city in which this blind man lived, so he went to him and asked him for medicine that would help him to see. The doctor gave him some drops and told him how to use them, and warned him that he may see suddenly, at any moment.

     The blind man continued to use the drops even though no one else believed that they would work, but after a few days he saw the light suddenly, whilst sitting in his garden. He was filled with joy and ran into the house to tell his dear wife, but he saw her in his room, betraying him with his friend, and he could not believe what he saw. Then he went to the other room and saw his son stealing something from his cupboard.

     The blind man retraced his steps, screaming,

     "This is not a doctor, this is an accursed sorcerer!"

     Then he took a pin and pierced his eyes, and nervously went back to the happiness that he was used to.

The moral of this sad tale is that we should accept the lot that we have been given in life, with whatever limitations have been decreed for us, because as the saying goes, the grass isn't always greener on the other side."

This tale is from the book that I have read , "You can be The Happiest Woman in The World" by Dr. Aid al-Qarni.

Such a heartbreaking tale but has a valuable lesson in it.
