A Moulana went to a barber-shop to have his hair cut . As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and on various topics.
When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said
"Moulana, I don't believe that God exists." Moulana asked shockingly with annoyance, "Why do you say that?"
Barber argued : "Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn't exist.
Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people?
Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine a loving a God who would allow all of these things."
Moulana thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he didn't want to start an argument.
The barber finished his job and Moulana left the shop. As soon as he stepped out of the barber-shop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkept.
Moulana took his steps back, entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber : "You know, what?
Barbers do not exist."
Now it was barber's turn to be in a shock, "How can you say that? I am here, and I am a barber. All know that. Just now I even worked on you!"
Moulana exclaimed, "No! Barbers don't exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside."
Barber argued, "Ah, but barbers DO exist! What happens is, people do not come to me. "
"Exactly!" affirmed the Moulana. "That's the point!
God too, DOES Exist! What happens is, people don't go to Him and do not look for Him. That's why there's so much of pain and suffering in the world."

It means you should just try a little harder!!
