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 a mother and father love their child, will they do anything to harm the child?

2. Must we listen to our parents who care for us, or should we follow our friends who always dare us and challenge us?

3. Who is more important, our parents or friends?

Alhamdulillah, at the occasion of Eidul Adha, our children get very excited about seeing the animals of qurbaani, feeding them and playing with them.

However we need to take it one step further and explain to them the true significance and real lessons of qurbaani. This could be done by relating to them the incident of Sayyiduna Ebrahim and Sayyiduna Ismaeel (alaihimas salaam).

The story that follows is meant to embed the consciousness of Allah Ta’ala in the heart of the child, and that Allah Ta’ala is watching all that we do. Before discussing the story, ask the children one by one to speak about Allah Ta’ala, and the qualities of Allah Ta’ala. Once they have all spoken, ask them what is the meaning of, “Allah Ta’ala is Al-Baseer!” Thereafter ask some of them questions, such as:

- Who can see you if you are sitting alone in the room with the door closed?

- Who can see you if you take something quietly from the cupboard?

- Who can see you if you hide under the bed?

- Who can see what you are thinking in your mind?

Then give them a coin each and ask them to hide it where no one can see it. Announce that the winner will receive a prize such as a chocolate, or some cash. The next day ask each one where they hid the coin. Now relate to them the following story.
