He boarded on ship with his wife. Then first man thought, “Since none of that person prayers have been answered. He is unworthy of leaving that island.” First man decided to leave other man on island.

As ship was about to leave, first man heard a voice from sky saying, “Why are you leaving your companion on island??”

First man replied, “Since i got everything i prayed for That means my blessings are result of my faith and prayers. His prayers were unanswered that why he has nothing on his side and so i figured he does not deserve to leave island with me.”

Voice from sky responded, “You are sorely mistaken. You are in great debt to that man.”

“How is that?”, asked first man.

“It was that person’s faith and prayer that invoked your blessings as he was one who prayed that all your prayers might be answered.” replied voice from sky.
