The Dessert Slipped and Fell

Print

Your child opened the fridge and the dessert which took you the entire morning to prepare slipped and fell out of his hands. The easiest thing to do is to get angry and shout at the child. But this does not remedy the situation nor does it better the child in any way.

On the other hand exercising a little patience and suppressing one’s anger will leave an admirable impression on your child. Place your hand on the child and console him saying: “Don’t be grieved. Whatever has happened has happened with the will of Allah Ta‘ala. Allah Ta‘ala has protected us from a bigger calamity. You could have lost a limb. Nevertheless, in future, if you want something, let me know first.” Such words nurture real human beings with true qualities.
