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. How should we speak to those elder than us?

2. Are we allowed to tease and make fun of others?

Now tell them the story:

There was a very old oupa sitting in a boat. Two little rascals decided to join him on his afternoon ride. The boat was in deep sea and everything was absolutely quiet. The two rascals started to get bored and began poking fun at oupa. They asked him if he knows how to write, to which he replied no. Then they asked him if he knows how to read, to which he replied no. They finally asked him if he knows how to count. When he replied no, they laughed for no more saying, “Old man! What do you know? You have wasted your life.”

Ask our children:

1. Can food be thrown away?

3. How should we treat the poor?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a spoilt boy whose name was Aslam. His parents were rich and because he was their only child, he enjoyed all their love and attention. They gave him the latest toys, dressed him in the smartest clothing and drove him in the best of cars. He was so spoilt, that his bedroom alone was as big as other people’s homes! There was never a dull day in Aslam’s life and he never heard ‘NO!’ as an answer. Anything he asked for was immediately given to him.

Ask our children:

1. Are we allowed to tease and make fun of people?

2. What should we do if someone teases us?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a little boy whose name was ‘Ali and surname was Gani. His pockets were always full of money and so he would always buy sweets and candy. Whenever his mummy and daddy would tell him to look after his teeth, he would refuse to listen. After a few years had passed, most of his teeth had decayed and had to be removed. With most of his teeth on the right and left pulled out, his two big front teeth began to stick out and really made him look funny.

Now tell them the story:

There was once a mighty lion who ruled over a dangerous jungle. All the animals feared him and would not dare disobey him. A single roar from him was enough to completely silence the entire jungle.

Ask our children:

1. Who must we turn to when faced with any problem?

3. Is it permissible to deceive someone?

Now tell them the story:

‘Abdullah was a very pious man who owned a farm that was full of beautiful fruit trees. Every now and then it would rain and this is how his trees would get their water. It once so happened that the rains stopped. Abdullah naturally became very worried. He immediately turned to Allah Ta‘ala and begged Allah Ta‘ala for help. There was a deep well on the farm but ‘Abdullah was too old and weak to draw out water for his trees.
