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.

Last Updated on Saturday, 03 October 2020 10:10

Ask our children:

1. What does it mean to tantrum?

2. Why do children tantrum?

3. Is it good to tantrum or bad?

4. What should we do if we have a tantrum?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a little girl named Tasneem. She had parents who loved her and a brother and sister who were always kind to her and shared their things with her. However, there was one problem – if Tasneem did not get what she wanted, when she wanted, and how she wanted, then she would have a HUGE tantrum! She would scream, shout and cry so loudly that the neighbours would hear her, the birds would fly away and even the dogs would become scared and start to whine!

Ask our children:

1. Who is a neighbour?

2. How should we treat our neighbours?

Now tell them the story:

Nazeer was a little boy who was not just naughty – he was VERY NAUGHTY. He lived in a complex with lots and lots of neighbours, and he loved to trouble them and make them angry. When he would do something naughty and make the neighbours angry, then he would find it very funny and laugh. In fact, he would laugh so much that even his tummy would start to pain!

Ask our children:

1. Is it important to make qurbaani of animals in the days of ‘eid?

2. If we don’t have money to buy an animal, what can we do?

Now tell them the story:

Once, there was a little boy named Qaasim who loved qurbaani. In fact, the days of qurbaani were his favourite days in the whole year! He even had a small calendar stuck inside his cupboard, and every day, he would count the days left for Qurbaani.

One year, however, Qaasim was very sad and heartbroken. His father came home and said, “Qaasim! I’m so sorry! We can’t make qurbaani this year because we don’t have enough money. We can’t buy a sheep.” As he said this, tears came into Qaasim’s eyes. He was so sad and disappointed, that he didn’t even feel like playing with his toys.

Ask our children:

1. What do you want to be when you grow up, and why?

2. What is the most important thing for every person to be?

Now tell them the story:

Once upon a time, there was a little boy named Ashraf. Ashraf had many friends, and whenever they would play together, the same thing would happen. His friends would take turns to pretend that they were policemen trying to catch robbers, or hunters searching for an animal, or firemen trying to put out a fire. But no matter what the other children pretended to be, Ashraf was always the same thing – a doctor.

Ashraf liked doctors and always pretended to be a doctor. He had a small doctor’s bag, with syringes, bandages, plasters and ointments inside, and he even had his own stethoscope! He would act as if he was giving injections, checking blood pressure, and he would even tie bandages on his friends’ arms and legs!

Why do we make Qurbaani?

Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) was a very great and special Nabi – he was known as ‘Khaleelullah’ which means ‘the special friend of Allah Ta‘ala’.

Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) always wanted to have children, but for years and years and years, he did not have any children. Finally, when Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) had waited for a long, long time, and he was now 86 years old, Allah Ta‘ala blessed him with a beautiful baby boy – Nabi Ismaa‘eel (‘alaihis salaam).

A few years later, when Nabi Ismaa‘eel (‘alaihis salaam) was no longer a small baby, but was now a young boy, running around, playing and helping his father, Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) had a dream. In his dream, he saw that he took a knife, placed it on the throat of his beloved son, Nabi Ismaa‘eel (‘alaihis salaam) and slaughtered him!
