The Enchanted Odyssey: Secrets of Al-Fassa

A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face.The one who got slapped was hurt, but he chose not to retaliate. Instead, he wrote in the sand, “Today, my best friend slapped me in the face.”

They continued their journey, and as the sun began to set, they stumbled upon an oasis. Excited about the prospect of cool water, they decided to take a refreshing swim. While they were swimming, the friend who had been slapped got stuck in some mud.

Panicking, he started sinking, and his friend rushed to help him. With great effort, they managed to pull him out just in time. Grateful for his friend’s assistance, the once-slapped friend carved on a nearby rock, “Today, my best friend saved my life.”

Intrigued, the friend who had slapped him asked, “Why did you write in the sand when I hurt you, but on the rock when I saved you?”

The wise friend smiled and replied, “When someone hurts us, we should write it down in the sand, where the winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But when someone does something good for us, we should engrave it in stone, so the memories remain.”

They both burst into laughter, realizing the profound lesson hidden in the humor of their desert adventure. From that day on, their friendship deepened, and the story of the slap and the rescue became a legendary tale of forgiveness, gratitude, and the enduring strength of true friendship. And so, the two friends continued their journey through the desert, sharing laughter and creating memories etched in the sands of time.
