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. If there are poor people around us, how should we treat them?

2. If we really want something, who should we turn to?

Now tell them the story:

Tasmiyah was an intelligent little girl who loved going to madrasah. She was in grade three and her favourite subject was Quraan. She loved reading the Quraan and she was a good reciter as well. Everything was so cheerful and joyful in her life. However there was only one thing that made her sad – her Quraan had no cover on it. She really wanted to cover it. In fact it was the only thing she wished for. Tasmiyah’s mother tried very hard to save up in order to buy one, but it was so hard to do so with the small income that came into the home. Tasmiyah had lost her father a few days after she was born. He was a passionate lover of the Quraan and passed away whilst reciting the Quraan. He left the world, but his passion for the Quraan continued to live in the heart of his one and only daughter, Tasmiyah.

Mothers often hear their children saying, “Mummy! I am bored.” This complaint generally increases during the holiday period. The solution to this problem is to instil the value of time in their minds.

Pose the following question to your child:

Imagine that you were taken to a room which was full of gold coins. Each gold coin was worth a million rands. You were told that you have only ten seconds to pick up as many gold coins as you can. Will you ever say that ten seconds is such a long time and you will get bored?

Ask our children:

1. Do we like to have a greedy jealous friend or a sharing caring friend?

2. Would we like it if someone keeps on nagging us and troubles us for something?

3. Who will Allah Ta‘ala love more, a thankful servant or an ungrateful servant?

Ask our children:

1. If all our friends have something, but our father cannot afford to buy that item for us, what should we do?

2. We always think of those few things we do not have, but do we ever appreciate the many things that we do have?

3. When last did we thank Allah Ta‘ala or our parents for all the good we are enjoying?

4. Did we know that we thank people by saying “Jazakallah!” and we thank Allah Ta‘ala  by saying “Alhamdulillah!”
