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. Would you like to have a neat and clean friend or a friend who is dirty and smelly?

2. How often should we clip our nails?

3. Should we go to madrasah in the afternoon?

Now tell them the story:

Arshad was a lazy boy, especially when it came to being clean and tidy. Before he ate, he would not let anyone wash his hands, even though they were black and dirty from playing the whole day! He would not allow anyone to cut his nails, even though they were full of dirt! It was only when he was fast asleep that his mother would be able to quietly clip his nails.

Ask your children:

1. What should we do when we are in difficulty?

2. Who should we turn to for help?

3. How should we treat the poor?

Now tell them the story:

Ismaa‘eel was a little boy who always had a smile on his face. He was very hardworking and Allah Ta‘ala had made him intelligent. He always came out first in madrasah and it was his dream to become a pious Moulana one day.

Once, Ismaa‘eel’s father suddenly fell very ill! His sickness became worse and worse, until three days later, he passed away. Because his mother was alone, Ismaa‘eel had to leave madrasah and help her at home. They had very little money, and sometimes there was no food in the home for days. Ismaa‘eel and his mother would be starving, but they never ever complained or begged. They remained patient and happy with whatever Allah Ta‘ala had decided for them.

Ask Our Children:

1. What is backbiting?

2. What should we do when someone backbites?

Now Tell Them The Story:

Saarah was a little girl. She had an elder sister, Aneesah. One day, Saarah said to her mother, “Mummy! Aneesah’s friend has a big mouth!”

Immediately, her mother stopped Saarah from saying another word and said to her, “Saarah! You have eaten the flesh of your Muslim sister!”

Saarah was surprised. She had come to tell her mother about Aneesah’s friends wrong, and now her mother was telling her that what she did was wrong! Saarah could just not understand.

Ask our children:

1. What should we say if we want to do something?

2. Who makes everything happen?

Now tell them the story:

Mahmood grew up in a very wealthy home. He wore the best clothes and played with the best toys. He was very spoilt and he got whatever he asked for. However, in his home, there was no salaah, no Quraan, no zikr and no du‘aa. There was also no ta’leem, where the whole family sits together and reads Fazaail-e-A‘amaal, learning the teachings of Islam. In Mahmood’s home, nobody spoke about Allah Ta‘ala and Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).
