There was once an evil king who was against Islam and the Muslims. The king decided he was going to finish off Islam by taking away the Qur'an from the people. He ordered his soldiers to go to the Muslim towns and cities, collect all the copies of the Qur'an and burn them!
The soldiers began terrorising the people and collecting all the Qur'ans. They made huge piles and started burning them as the poor Muslims watched in horror.
That evening, the king looked outside at his kingdom and saw the huge clouds of smoke that had filled the sky. The king was satisfied thinking he had finished off Islam. He thought, if there were no Qur'ans left, the Muslims would not be able to learn about Islam. They would slowly leave Islam and go astray.
As the King sat on his throne over-looking the city, he was very happy. Then from all the commotion he heard the voice of a little six year old boy. The evil king listened more carefully as this boy began reciting the Qur'an from his memory. The king was so shocked at the pure words of the Qur'an that echoed in the city.
The King realised that Allah has promised to preserve the Qur'an and protect it till the Day of Judgement. The evil king may have burned the written copies of the Qur'an but he could never take the Qur'an from the hearts of the people. It took a six-year old child to teach him this lesson.
