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. Why do we learn the knowledge of Deen?

2. Would you like to just know all the names of the different sweets and chocolates, or would you like to eat them as well?

Now tell them the story:

Ilyaas had a pretty pet parrot. Its favourite food was fresh juicy carrots. Every day, Ilyaas would make it repeat four sentences, over and over again. Every time it said the sentences correctly, Ilyaas would give it a big, juicy carrot. The four sentences were, “The man with the cap”, “He has a trap”, “He will place the carrot”, “Don’t go there my parrot!”

Ask our children:

1. What kind of friends and company should we keep?

2. Should we listen to our parents, teachers and elders?

3. What should we do when someone advises us?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a pious, intelligent and obedient little boy whose name was Ilyaas. He was the best student in the class, always respecting and listening to his Moulana. He loved his Moulana dearly and was always ready to serve him. When the other boys would laugh and make fun of the Moulana, Ilyaas would try to explain to them that what they were doing was wrong and also very dangerous for them. However, they would just never listen.

Ask our children:

1. Should we think of others or should we be selfish and worry only about ourselves?

2. How should we treat the one who does wrong to us?

Now tell them the story:

Once there was a puppy and a calf. They were the best of friends. They always played together and even had their meals together. One afternoon, as they were playing along a river, they saw a farm on the other side of the river full of juicy strawberries. They decided to quietly go over and enjoy some sweet strawberries.

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.”
