Ask our children:  

1. Before we do anything, should we tell our parents first? 

2. If Allah Ta’ala has given more than we need, should we share with the poor?

Now tell them the story:

After one month of madrasah, his mother noticed that he had lost weight. It was strange to see him return home every afternoon very weak and extremely hungry. She was quite worried, so she asked him if there was anything troubling him. He at once said that everything was fine.

Alhamdulillah, at the occasion of Eidul Adha, our children get very excited about seeing the animals of qurbaani, feeding them and playing with them. This is a great quality since it keeps the spirit of qurbaani alive in our communities. 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).
