The Buffalo vs. The Cow

Whenever there is a storm, these two animals react totally different from each other

When a cow senses a storm, it runs away from it. When a Buffalo senses a storm, it runs towards it

Allah says in the Quran

“And on the earth are signs for the certain [in faith], and in yourselves. Then will you not see?”

Al Qur’an, Surah Az Zariyat, 51,20–21

The cow runs from the storm and ends up getting exposed to the storm for a longer time. The Buffalo runs toward it and gets hit the hardest but also recovers quicker as the storm passes

What’s the lesson here?

The cow runs from the test out of fear and not having what it takes to endure it. The cow learns nothing and doesn’t get stronger

The Buffalo tackles the test head on. He knows that if he confronts what’s ahead of him, it will be hard, but, it will make him stronger and the storm will be over sooner

Men, be the Buffalo, Don’t run from a test, problem, or fear that is following u. You want learn from avoiding what is inevitable. Run towards the storm and become unstoppable
