Home Mother's Corner


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.

Well Deceived


Last Updated on Thursday, 19 November 2015 09:01

Ask our children:

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

2. What must we do when our problem is solved?

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.

Ask our children:

1. Who comes first, our parents or our friends?

2. How should we treat our parents?       

3. What should we do when our parents get old?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a little boy named Hanzalah. His favourite friend was a big apple tree. Every day he would play around the tree, climb its high branches, eat its red apples and rest under its cool shade. He loved the tree and the tree loved him. However, when the little boy grew up, he stopped visiting the tree. The tree missed him and became very, very lonely.

Cherry Surprise


Last Updated on Thursday, 27 August 2015 07:26

Ask your children:

1. Is it safe for children to be climbing up tall trees all alone?

2. Can we break fruit from a tree without the owner’s permission?

Now tell them the story:

Zaheer was a little boy who loved cherries. His parents, however, were quite poor and could not afford to buy those delicious-looking cherries when they were in season as cherries are pretty expensive. Despite it being almost impossible for Zaheer’s parents to buy even a small bunch of cherries, he still longed for them and wished to have them. Adding to his longing was the fact that his next door neighbour, Aqeel, had a huge cherry tree with plump, juicy bunches hanging from the branches.

Red Milk

Ask our children:

1. Who are our friends?

2. Why did we choose them to be our friends?

3. If our parents are not happy with our friends, what should we do?

Now tell them the story:

There was a playful little calf that always played with his friends; the tall giraffe, the short buffalo and the fat elephant. Because of his friends, his ways and manners began to change. He was no longer that warm and loving son he used to be. The mother cow became very worried, so she told him one day, “O my dear son! Your friends are not your real friends. They are just there because every day you share with them the fresh and tasty milk shake I make for you. You should rather make the little red sparrow your friend. He will help you when you need him.”
