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:

Should we share what we have with others, or should we keep everything for ourselves?

Now tell them the story:

Bilaal was a boy who was very greedy and would never share with people. When visitors came to his home and their children wanted to play with his toys, he would shout, “NO! IT’S MINE!” and would refuse to let them play with any of his toys. Also, when he had a chocolate or a packet of chips, he would not share with anyone! He would shout, “IT’S MINE!” Because he never ever shared with anyone, the other children in his school wouldn’t like to play with him or sit with him.

One day, when Bilaal came to school, he realized that he forgot his food at home! When it was break time, he watched in misery as all the other children took their food out of their bags and began to eat. He was so hungry, that his stomach was rumbling away like a tractor “Grrrrrrr!”

Ask our children:

1. Who gives us food, money, clothing and everything that we have?

2. Can we run away from what Allah Ta‘ala has written for us?

Now tell them the story:

Aasif was a little boy with a lot of questions. He was always asking “why”, “who” and “when?” If his parents or his Moulana told him the answer, he wouldn’t believe them and would try to check for himself if their answer was true.

Ask Our Children:

1. Who gives us everything?

2. Should we rush to do things or should we first find out from people who know?

3. If someone does not understand something, what should we do?

Now Tell Them The Story:

‘Abdullah was a simple farmer who lived in a small, small village, far, far away from the busy city. In ‘Abdullah’s village, there was no water and no electricity. So everyday, ‘Abdullah would go to the river to fetch water and go to the forest to fetch fire wood.
