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.

Ask your children:

1. If something does not belong to us, can we take it?

2. Are Muslims honest people or are they thieves?

3. Should we hide in cupboards and other places where we can get locked?

4. If we have a friend who is naughty, what should we do?

Ask our children:

1. Are we allowed to lie when we speak?

2. Will people trust us if we are untruthful?

Now tell them the story:

Taahir was a little boy who had a very bad habit – he would always speak lies! If you asked him his name, he would lie and tell you the wrong name. If you asked him how old he was, he would lie and tell you the wrong age. In fact, he lied about almost everything!

Taahir’s parents would always remind him that lying is haraam and a Muslim does not speak lies. They would remind him that Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was called ‘Al-Ameen’ because he never ever spoke a lie. They reminded him that when a person lies, the angels run away because the mouth of the liar starts to stink and smell bad. But, no matter what they told him, he continued to lie when he spoke, until nobody trusted him and believed him anymore.

Ask our children:

1. Is it good to be greedy or should we be happy with what we have?

2. When we see other people who don’t have the things that we have then what should we do?

3. If we don’t get what we want, should we be sad?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a little boy named Goolaam who was very, very greedy. He was so greedy that no matter what he had, it was never enough for him and he always wanted more!
