Ilyaas Learns Ikhlaas


Last Updated on Saturday, 29 January 2022 08:42

There was once a boy named Ilyaas who always liked to help people. He would help his brother and sister, his friends in madrasah, and any person he saw who needed help. Ilyaas had such a kind heart that he could not see any person with a need or a problem and ignore him! Rather, he just had to go and try to help the person.

One day, when Ilyaas was in madrasah, his friend Nadeem came running to him and said, “Ilyaas! Ilyaas! Please, you have to help me, or I will be in sooo much of trouble!” Ilyaas turned to him and said, “Calm down Nadeem! What’s the matter?” Nadeem said, “I forgot my kitaab at home, and Moulana will give me detention if I don’t have a kitaab today, because that’s the second time I left it at home this week!” Ilyaas replied, “Don’t worry, I have a spare kitaab. Here, take it!” Nadeem was so happy, he said, “Jazaakallah!”, took the kitaab and went back to his place.

That day, after madrasah, as Ilyaas’s father came to fetch him, Ilyaas noticed that Ahmad was crying. He quickly went to Ahmad and asked, “Ahmad! What’s wrong? Is everything ok?” Ahmad said, “I was supposed to take a lift home with Nadeem today, but I forgot to tell him. Now he’s already gone and I don’t have a lift to go home!” Ilyaas immediately said, “That’s not a problem, you can come with me! We’ll give you a lift!” Ahmad was so happy that he smiled a big smile, from ear to ear. He sat in the car with Ilyaas, and in a few minutes, he was back home.

Hanzalah and the Halaal Snacks


Last Updated on Tuesday, 11 January 2022 08:35

There was once a boy named Hanzalah, who loved to eat sweets, chocolates, cakes, biscuits, ice creams and desserts.

One day, Hanzalah saw that his uncle was going to the supermarket, so he quickly ran to his mother and asked her if he could go with his uncle to buy some snacks. His mother said, “Ok Hanzalah, you can go, but make sure that you stay with your uncle and show him what you want before you take it.” Hanzalah was thrilled and hopped into the car, and in a few minutes, they were in the supermarket.  

When Hanzalah got to the supermarket, he took a trolley and pushed it to the aisle with the sweets, chocolates and snacks. This, was Hanzalah’s favourite part of the whole supermarket!

Hanzalah looked at the different sweets and chocolates, and there were so many to choose from that he didn’t know where to start! Finally, he started at the top of the shelf, choosing a few different sweets and chocolates that he could take and share with his friends. Thereafter, he took a few packets of chips, and finally, he took a few boxes of biscuits.

Last Updated on Thursday, 23 December 2021 16:08

The holidays had just started, and Fudhail was very excited. Fudhail lived in Johannesburg, and his father was taking the family to Durban to visit their grandparents. Fudhail was so excited that he started packing his bags one week before! His grandparents always spoiled him, and bought him lots of sweets, chocolates and presents.

Finally, the day came when they all got into the car. As Fudhail’s father started the car, he read the du‘aa for traveling. Then, they got onto the road and set out for Durban!

Fudhail couldn’t wait to reach Durban, so he kept asking his father, “Daddy! How long left?” Fudhail’s father would just laugh and say, “Durban is far away Fudhail! We will reach in the evening insha-Allah!”

Fudhail wanted his father to just keep driving, without stopping, so that they could get to Durban quickly. But, before he knew it, Fudhail’s father stopped! Fudhail was anxious and asked, “Daddy! Why are we stopping?” Fudhail’s father replied, “My cousin lives here Fudhail! I want to visit him! I haven’t seen him in a while!”

Jameel and the Day of Jumu‘ah


Last Updated on Saturday, 23 October 2021 15:40

Ask our children:

1. Which is the most important and best day of the week?

2. What should a Muslim do on the day of Jumu‘ah?

Now tell them the story:

Jameel was a boy who loved the weekends. He loved the weekends because there was no school, and no madrasah, so he could wake up late, eat waffles and pancakes for breakfast, and play with his friends all day.

One day, when Jameel was in madrasah, Moulana asked the class, “Children! Tell me, which is the best day of the week?” Jameel immediately put his hand up and shouted, “I know! Sunday is the best day! On Sundays, my father doesn’t go to work, so I get to spend time with him!”
