"Your progeny will be blessed with water canals"

This story was recently related to me by an elderly brother in Vancouver. This is about my grandfather Muhammad Baksh sahib, but I was not aware of this at all until he told me. My grandfather was a poor man and a companion of the Promised Messiah. Once he was serving Promised Messiah (as) while Huzur was taking rest. At one point when Promised Messiah (as) fell into sleep, my grandfather gently slipped some coins under his pillow. Promised Messiah (as) suddenly woke up and found what my grandfather did. It was only a very little amount - 6 anas - but he enquired why it was done in such a way. My grandfather explained that he could only find so much money and he had this strong wish to support Promised Messiah (as) in his service to Islam. But he was so embarrassed to offer such a small amount and hence decided to place it under the pillow when Promised Messiah (as) sleeps. 

The Promised Messiah (as) was very pleased with the honesty and sincerity of this follower and prayed for him. He said "Your progeny will be blessed with water canals". To have water canal meant that one will be landlord with own canals to water his crops. At that time, this poor Muhammad Baksh was a poor man himself and probably could not have even dreamt of owning a farmland at that time. But Allah blessed him so much that later on all his five sons became rich land owners and each of them had their own water canals too. 

We are all eager to save money in banks and stock markets for the benefit for our progeny. But it is these spending in the way of Allah and the belief in the unseen that finally returns with bigger blessings!
