Allah answered Isa's prayer. The people were so amazed by this miracle! Isa told them to go on now that they had witnessed the miracle. They were sure he was crazy! Were they supposed to leave this enormous amount of gold? No way! Sadly, only a few true believers continued on with Isa.
Immediately, each of the selfish people began to claim their part of the gold. After dividing all of it, they got hungry but not one of them wanted to go to town to buy the food fearing that somebody would steal from their huge pile of gold.
However, the selfish people plotted to kill the man when he came back with all the food, so they would have all the gold. The shepherd also had a plan! He would put poison in the food before returning to the mountain, so he could have the whole mountain of gold for himself! Shortly after he came back with the food, set it out beautifully, and waited for them to eat their final meal. However, they did not eat. Instead they attacked and killed the shepherd! Proud of their great plan, they sat down to stuff themselves with food. Soon no one was left breathing on the entire mountain of gold!
Isa (PBUH) returned from his journey with the true believers to the golden mountains. They found out that every person that had stayed behind and the shepherd all had died. He told the people who had gone with him that they could have the whole mountain of gold for themselves.
This worldly life is like a shadow. If you try to chase it, you will simply make yourself tired, for you will never ever be able to reach it! However, if you just walk and go on with life, it has no choice but to follow you! Never be deceived by worldly materials! They are temporary!
