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.

On the night when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was born, there was an earthquake in the land of Persia. The king of Persia was known as Chosroes, and he and his people would worship fire instead of Allah Ta‘ala. Because of this earthquake, all fourteen towers in the palace of Chosroes fell down and collapsed! Also, the Persians had a special fire in their temple. This fire was burning for one thousand years, and they would worship this fire. However, on that night, when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was born, this fire went off on its own! Finally, there was a lake named Lake Saawah. All of a sudden, this lake became dry and had no water left!

All these things which happened on that night were actually signs that the religion of worshipping fires was going to come to an end, as Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was now born and the Deen of Islam was coming to put an end to all the wrong religions.

The next morning, when the Persian king, Chosroes, woke up and learnt that the fire had gone out, and the towers of his palace had all fallen down, he became very, very worried. Then, one of his priests stood in front of him and said, “I had a dream last night. In my dream, I saw powerful camels pulling some Arabian horses. I then saw them crossing over the Tigris River and spreading to every country in the world.” When Chosroes asked the priest what this dream meant, he replied, “It seems like something very important will happen, and it will come from the land of Arabia.”

Our beloved prophet, Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), was born fifty or fifty-five days after Allah Ta‘ala destroyed Abarahah and his elephants. The day of his blessed birth was Monday, 8th Rabee‘ul Awwal (according to the most reliable view). He was born in the house of Abu Taalib, at the time of subah saadiq which we also call sehri time.

The blessed birth of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was not like the birth of a normal baby. Rather, it was very special, and many special things happened when he was born. The reason is that this was the birth of the greatest person who ever came in the world, and the person who was the most beloved to Allah Ta‘ala.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was born, the entire house was filled with noor and special light, and even the stars in the sky came down close to the earth. His mother, Aaminah, also saw a special light which was shining on the palaces of Syria.

Normally, when a baby is born, its body is covered in dirt and it needs a bath. But when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was born, his body was completely clean and he did not need a bath. When ‘Abdul Muttalib, the grandfather of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saw the special manner in which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was born, he said, “This grandson of mine is going to be a very great person one day!”

Ask our children:

1. Is wasting allowed in Islam?

2. What happens if a person is wasteful?

3. Why must we be good Muslims?

Now tell them the story:

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Waheedah. She had good manners and was also very helpful. Whenever her mother needed anything, she would shout out, “Waheedah!” and she would come running, ready to help her mother. But, Waheedah had one weakness – she was very wasteful.

The People of the Elephants

The story of the people of the elephants is a very famous story. Allah Ta‘ala speaks of this story in the Quraan Majeed in Surah Feel. This story happened about two months before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was born, in the time when ‘Abdul Muttalib was the leader of the Quraish.

The story starts with a man named Abrahah. He was a Christian man who was the ruler in the land of Yemen. He saw that every year, all the Arabs from different places would travel and go to the house of Allah Ta‘ala, the Ka’bah, to perform hajj. When Abrahah saw this, he built a big, fancy church in Yemen and decorated it to make it look very beautiful. He wanted this church to be the new Ka’bah, and wanted all the Arabs to come to it to make hajj.
