He attended four charity dinners, later he had to suffer from stomach problem. 3 He sent his twelve self-signed photographs to a charity bazaar to be sold to raise funds. 4 He also performed in Talbot Chimneys and helped to raise funds for the destitute (poor) British in Johannesburg. 5 Moreover, he sent his old clothes along with a useable coat to rummage sale and bought a raffle to help the poor.
Q5. Why noble deeds are always a great joy for the author?
Ans. Good deeds bring spiritual satisfaction to everyone. Similarly for the author good deeds are of great joy, he tries to recall all his good deeds that he has done during his lifetime. In his dream, he is dead and realizes that he has lost all opportunities for good deeds. He also tells the angel that noble deeds are always a great joy to him and he loves to think of all the good deeds he himself has done. He often thought of keeping a diary–noting them down each day as it would be so nice for one’s children. Noble deeds not only satisfy one‟s conscience but also a true way to win God’s love. A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
Q6. What is the central idea of the story “The Angel and The Author and The Others”?
Ans. Man does not become conscious of the escaping time and opportunity that has been bestowed to him by Almighty Allah. Here in this story, the author realizes that he is no more alive and has lost all the opportunities to perform good deeds. Thus he recalls his good deeds with the ironic vein that majority of us start doing good during the specific religious occasions. In other words, in order to protect himself from damnation he starts mentioning his trivial deeds which are of no significance. The idea of death, the fear of it, haunts the human like nothing else; it is a mainspring of human activity and this fear can only be overthrown or defeated through good deeds and following the ways prescribed by Almighty Allah.
