Introduction

Children love stories, and good stories have valuable lessons in them. Thus a very easy way to instil morals and values in our children is through story-telling. In this section, we will be guided as to how to present stories to our children and how to follow them up with lessons.

Ask our children:

1. Should we sit in one place and eat or should we walk around and eat?

2. Should we eat using a plate or bowl or should we let our crumbs fall onto the table or floor?

3. What should we do with the crumbs in our plate or bowl after we have eaten?

Now tell them the story:

Kamaal was a little boy who could NEVER sit in one place. He was always running here and there, jumping from place to place and playing all over the house.

Ask our children:

1. Who protects us and saves us?

2. What should we do when we are scared?

Now tell them the story:

Salmaan was a little boy who was always scared and afraid. He was scared of the dark... He was scared to sleep alone in his room... He was scared of animals... He was scared of loud noises... In fact, he was so scared, that even the phone ringing would give him a fright!

One day, Salmaan went to his Moulana, after madrasah, and complained to him, “Moulana! I’m so scared all the time! I don’t know what to do! I become so scared that my legs turn to jelly! Please tell me, what can I do?”

Ask our children:

1. Does Islam teach us to be clean or dirty?

2. How much of junk food should we eat?

3. When should we use the miswaak?

Now tell them the story:

Mahmood was a little boy who loved to eat sweets, chocolates, biscuits and ice cream, and loved to drink milkshake, juice and cold drink. Doritos and Astros, Pepsis and popsicles, Romany Creams and Cadbury Dreams – these were some of Mahmood’s favourites, and he would eat as much as he could, every single day.

Ask our children:

1. Who gives us everything that we have and enjoy?

2. If we want something, who should we ask?

Now tell them the story:

Ahmad was a boy who loved to eat donuts. Every Friday, as his father was leaving for work, Ahmad would run behind him and remind him, “Abba! Please don’t forget that it’s Friday today! Today’s donut day!”

Before coming home from work every Friday, Ahmad’s father would stop at the bakery and buy some fresh, hot donuts for Ahmad. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside... dripping with melted chocolate... filled with fresh cream... Ahmad just couldn’t wait! As soon as ‘Asr Salaah was over, Ahmad would keep running to the door, waiting for his father to arrive with his tasty donuts.
