Three Questions

There was once an enemy of Islam who had three questions that no one could answer. One day a 10 year old boy walked up and said, "I accept your challenge".
The man laughed. But the boy reiterated his stance and the man accepted.
The city gathered. The man climbed to the top of a hill and asked, "What is your God doing now?"
The small boy thought then told the man to climb down and allow him to go up to answer. The man made his way down and the boy went up.
The child's reply was "Oh Allah. You have just willed that a Kafir be brought low, and a Muslim be brought high!"
The crowd cheered. The man asked his Second question... What existed before your God?"
The small child asked the man to count backwards from 10. The man counted..."10, 9, 8...0" The boy asked, "What comes before 0?" The man: "Nothing."
The boy: "Nothing was before Allah, for He is eternal."
The crowd cheered. The man, now frustrated, asked his final question. "In which direction is your Allah facing?"
The boy asked for a candle which was brought. He handed it to the man and asked him to light it. The man did so. The boy asked, "In which direction is light from the candle going?" The man responded, "It is going in all directions."
The boy: "You have answered your own question. Allah's light (noor) goes in all directions. He is everywhere. There is no where that He cannot be found.
The crowd cheered. The man was so impressed by the boy's knowledge that he embraced Islam.
Who was the young boy? He was one of our leaders Imam Abu Hanîfa (May Allah bless him).
