With the Blessings of Beloved Bhagawan, Sai Youth of Chennai had the unique opportunity, to put into practice the Divine Words -
“THERE IS ONLY ONE RELIGION, THE RELIGION OF LOVE”, and further reinstate the fact that the Sri Sathya Sai Organisation fosters unity and harmony among all religions. On the holy occasion of Ramzan (24-10-06), Sai Youth (40 nos.) of Chennai organised refreshments (Rasna juice) for the Muslim brothers who had congregated for Namaz, at the Island Grounds, near Parrys.
When Sai Youth assembled at the venue at 6.30 am, they were welcomed with dark clouds, threatening to shower heavy rain, any moment. This raised doubt amongst the Muslim organisers themselves whether the prayer proceedings would proceed as planned. The overall picture looked gloomy. But Sai Youth having faith in Bhagawan, continued with the arrangements for serving the refreshments and started erection of the Shamiyana, setting up of tables and preparation of Rasna.
When unflinching Faith and Dedication meet HIS GRACE, can their ever be failure. Despite reports of heavy rain in neighbouring areas, the dark clouds started moving away and the sky cleared, with even the sun making a brief appearance. And then slowly individuals started streaming into the venue, for prayers.
The prayers lasted for an hour, after which Muslim Brothers were welcomed by Sai Youth, with greetings of “Eid Mubarak” and served with “SAI’s AMRIT”. Nearly 1000 Muslim brothers enjoyed the refreshments and were pleased that the Youth of the Sri Sathya Sai Organisation were there amongst them, celebrating the holy festival of Ramzan. Many Muslim brothers expressed their desire that Sai Youth should organise this event in the years to come too.
As the service activity neared its end, our Beloved Bhagawan, showered HIS GRACE, in the form of rain drops and Sai Youth thanked Bhagawan for giving them this unique opportunity to serve Muslim Brothers on this HOLY DAY.
