Once there was a king and he had a court magician. As the court magician grew old he request the king that now I have grown old so send me a boy in order to teach him magic.
A Boy for Learning By The King
The king fulfilled his request and sends him a boy for learning the magic. When boy was on his journey he met a monk to whom he listened and he liked his speech very much.
The boy then makes his habit to meet the monk on his way to the magician. He used to spent time with him and stay with him. When he arrives at the magician the magician used to beat him because of this delay.
The boy told the whole story to the monk. and monk advised him that when you feel afraid of the magician say him that members of family delayed me. and when you feel afraid of your family say that magician delayed me.
A Huge Beast:
One day when boy was on his way there came a huge beast and blocked the way of the people the boy thought that today I will know whether the magician is better or monk is better.
The boy picked up a stone and said to ALLAH that my dear ALLAH let inform me that who is much dearer to you whether the magician is dearer to you or monk is dearer to you. Boy said to ALLAH that if monk is dearer to you then bring about death to this beast. so that people will be able to move freely through the path.
He threw a piece of stone on the beast and killed the beast and people were now able to move freely through the path. The boy then approached the monk and told him the whole story. The monk said dear boy today you are much better and more superior to me. Today I can feel that now you come to a stage where you would be soon put to a trail and if you are to put on a trial then reveal nothing about me.
Start Healing People:
The boy then began to heal people from all kinds of diseases. He even began to heal those born blind and the vitiligo stricken. During that courtier of king had gone blind when he heard about the boy, he approached him with several types of precious gifts and said: all those gifts will be yours if you cure me.
The boy replied: that I do not cure anyone in fact it is Allah the Exalted, Alone who cures. If you affirm your faith in Allah, I shall also supplicate to Allah to cure you.
This courtier affirmed his faith in Allah and Allah cured him. He returned to the king and sat by his side as he used to sit before. The king asked him, “Who restored your eyesight?” His answer: “My God.” The king again asked: “Do you have another lord besides me?”
He answered: “My Lord and your Lord is Allah.” So the king continued asking him until he told him the whole situation and about the boy.

The king then called the boy and asked him that It conveyed to me that you have become so much skilled in your magic that you can even cure the blind and vitiligo stricken.

The boy answer that it is not me who cures anyone it is ALLAH alone who cures. Then the king try to torture him until he told him about the story of monk.The king called the monk and asked him to leave his religion. but the boy refused to do. So, the king insisted him by placing saw on the middle of his head and cut him into two parts. the courtier approached him and asked him to leave his religion he again refuse. Then they placed saw in the middle of his head and he was torn into two parts. The boy sent to him and the boy asked him to leave his religion but he still refused.

So when they reached at the mountain the boy asked ALLAH help him then mountain began to shake they all died the boy returned back to the king and he asked that what happened to your companions? He said: “Allah has saved me from them.”
The king again ordered his people to take him to the sea and when you reach at the middle of sea ask him to leave his religion if he did not do so then throw him in the sea.
So the boy again ask ALLAH to help him and boat turned upside down they all died except the boy. He again went back to king. and he asked what happened to your companions. He replied that ALLAH save me from them. The boy tell the king that you don’t do so until you gather all people in one place.Then hang me up to the trunk of tree then take an arrow and say:
