A Story

God ordered two angels to destroy a city. On reaching there, the angels noticed one of the inhabitants beseeching and supplicating to God. One of the angels said to the other:

“Don’t you see this person supplicating?”

“Yes I do, but God’s order has to be executed,” replied the other one.

“Wait. Let me ask God as to what should be done.”

Praying to God, the first angel inquired: “In this city there is a person, who entreats and beseeches you. Do we still impose thechastisement upon the city?”

The answer came from God:

“Execute the commandment which has been given to you, for that person has never been perturbed and distressed for My sake, nor did he show anger over the evil deeds committed by the other people.”
