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. 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!”

One Goal and One Destination

Ask our children:

A mother, father and their children are seated in a car. The mother wishes to go to Johannesburg, the father wishes to go to Durban and the children wish to go Cape Town. In such a situation is it possible to make everyone happy?

It is possible, in such a case, that the father will drive for a few kilometres towards Durban. However, due to the mothers nagging, he will have to turn towards Johannesburg. After a few kilometres, due to the children’s demanding, he will be forced to turn towards Cape Town. But, when they all fall off to sleep, the father will quietly turn towards Durban again, until the mother wakes up and the entire roundabout circus starts once more. The question is: Will they reach anywhere, if they continue in this manner?
