Ask our children:

1. What does it mean to tantrum?

2. Why do children tantrum?

3. Is it good to tantrum or bad?

4. What should we do if we have a tantrum?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a little girl named Tasneem. She had parents who loved her and a brother and sister who were always kind to her and shared their things with her. However, there was one problem – if Tasneem did not get what she wanted, when she wanted, and how she wanted, then she would have a HUGE tantrum! She would scream, shout and cry so loudly that the neighbours would hear her, the birds would fly away and even the dogs would become scared and start to whine!

Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “Do you know who the bankrupt person is?” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) replied, “The bankrupt person among us, O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), is the one who neither possesses dirhams (coins) nor goods.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed, the person who is truly bankrupt from my Ummah is the one who will come on the Day of Qiyaamah with his salaah, fasting and zakaah, but (at the same time,) he will come having verbally abused this person, having falsely accused that person, having (unjustly) consumed the wealth of this person, having (unrightfully) shed the blood of that person and having (wrongfully) struck this person. Hence, this person (who was oppressed) will be given from his good deeds (as recompense), and that person will be given from his good deeds (and in this way, all those who were oppressed will be given from his good deeds). If his good deeds are completely depleted before the sins that are upon him have been recompensed, then some of their sins (the sins of the oppressed people) will be taken and placed on him, after which he will be flung into the fire of Jahannum.” (Saheeh Muslim #6579)

There was once a youth in the Banu Israaeel who was blessed with such beauty that people had never before set eyes on anyone as handsome as him. This youngster would sell baskets for a living.

One day, while he was going about selling his baskets, a woman emerged from the palace of one of the kings of the Banu Israaeel. On catching sight of the youth, the woman immediately turned and went back into the palace where she said to the princess, “O so-and-so! I saw a youth selling baskets, and I have never seen anyone more handsome than him!” Hearing this, the princess said, “Bring him in!”

The woman thus went out and said to the youth, “O youngster! Come inside so that we can buy something from you!” The youth unsuspectingly followed the woman into the palace, but as he entered, she locked the door behind him. She then called him further into the palace, and as he ventured further, she locked yet another door behind him. At that point, the princess emerged before him, with her face and the upper portion of her chest exposed.

The Concealed Connection

There was once a man who was suffering from several infections. First, he had an eye infection, then he had an ear infection, and then a skin infection, and finally, he even had a nail infection! Initially, he attempted to treat the infection by applying medication directly to the site of infection, as he reasoned that localised treatment would be most beneficial. However, this proved tedious and ineffective, for as soon as the infection would subside in one area, it would rapidly flare up in another.

Eventually, the man went to a doctor and complained of his condition. To his surprise, the doctor ignored all the sites of infection, and instead administered a potent injection into his behind! Then, to his even-greater surprise, he found that the infection disappeared within mere days! Unable to understand the hidden connection between his behind and all the sites of infection, he enquired from the doctor, who explained to him that though it was administered into the behind, the powerful medication was able to permeate throughout the body via the bloodstream, thus eradicating the infection from the root and healing the entire body all at once. This was the ‘concealed connection’.
