WHO ATE THE THIRD LOAF OF BREAD
Some of you perhaps have heard this
OUR PROPHET (Pease Be Upon Him) Taught us that Once upon a time that JESUS (Pease Be Upon Him) Gave some money to one of his companions and he told him to go to town to get some food for everybody. The man took the money and went into a town close by and bought the food. There wasn’t very much money and all he was able to buy was three loaves of bread. And he was very (very) hungry and realised there were just these three loaves of bread. So he decided to eat one loaf of bread himself and then when he got back he just handed over the bread to Jesus who asked him “who ate the third loaf of bread?” and immediately the man said “there are only 2 loaves of bread.” Jesus didn’t say anything else and they continued on the journey with their companions.
Later on the companions succeeded in hunting a deer. They killed the deer, they were cooking it and eating from the deer. Then Jesus stood up and he asked Allah to bring this deer back to life. And then, in less than a second the deer jumped back up and ran away. The people were amazed that how did this deer that we just killed and we cooked him, and we were eating him and suddenly he just jumps up and runs away? So then Jesus looked at the man who had gone after the bread and said “I’m asking you by the one who brought this deer back to life, who ate the third loaf of bread?” And then immediately the man said “they were only 2 loaves of bread.” Again Jesus (peace be upon him) didn’t say anything and continued on their journey.
Now while they were walking they came across a river that had been flooded up. Jesus (peace be upon him) asked them to hold his hand. So everybody joined hand with him and they were able to walk across the top of the river and walk all the way to the other side. When they got to the other side, the people were amazed, you know, how could this be? He said to the same man again, he said, “I’m asking you by the one, in other words by the one who made it for us to be able to cross this river by walking on top of it, who ate the third loaf of bread?” and immediately he said, “they were only two loaves of bread.” So Jesus didn’t say anything again and went on.
Then they came to a desert and that’s when Jesus took 3 big piles of sand and then he asked Allah, “turn this to gold.” And this man was watching this and suddenly the piles of sand became piles of gold. Then he(Jesus) said “1 pile is for me” and he looked to the man and said “1 pile is for you and the third pile is for the one who ate the third loaf of bread.” The man quickly said “I’m the one who ate the third loaf of bread.” And Jesus told him “then all three piles of gold are for you but do not accompany us anymore.” But the man didn’t care he was so happy he sat down in front of his new fortune.
He started dreaming of what he was going to do with it. He was smiling all alone looking at his wealth. Suddenly three thieves came upon him and they saw here is a man sitting alone with this huge treasure of gold. First thing they did, they killed him. Then they divided the gold each one of them took one of the big piles of gold. And then they sent one of them to go in and get some food so they could eat and then plan up their future.
So one of the thieves, he went into town to buy food. Now he didn’t take one of the loaves of bread like the other guy. Instead he decided to poison the food so when he goes back the people will eat the poison, they will die and he will get all three shares of gold for himself. And this is what he did. But his friends who he had left behind were also plotting against him and they decided when this man comes back, will jump him from two sides, kill him and then will divide up his share of the gold amongst ourselves. So they killed him when he came back and then they sat down to enjoy their meal and they ate the poison food. A few minutes later they both died and they were all laying there.
When Jesus (peace be upon him) came back with his companions, they passed by the very same spot and there they saw their former companion laying on the ground and the other three thieves laying there too. All were dead. And all three piles of gold laying there too. And he pointed to this and said “this is the life of this world”.
In Arabic called “this is the life of Hayatu AlDunya” This is the life of this world. and this is what would do for those who seek after it.
