Last Updated on Wednesday, 06 May 2020 08:05

Ask our children:

1. Would you like to have a neat and clean friend or a friend who is dirty and smelly?

2. How often should we clip our nails?

3. Should we go to madrasah in the afternoon?

Now tell them the story:

Arshad was a lazy boy, especially when it came to being clean and tidy. Before he ate, he would not let anyone wash his hands, even though they were black and dirty from playing the whole day! He would not allow anyone to cut his nails, even though they were full of dirt! It was only when he was fast asleep that his mother would be able to quietly clip his nails.

Ask your children:

1. What should we do when we are in difficulty?

2. Who should we turn to for help?

3. How should we treat the poor?

Now tell them the story:

Ismaa‘eel was a little boy who always had a smile on his face. He was very hardworking and Allah Ta‘ala had made him intelligent. He always came out first in madrasah and it was his dream to become a pious Moulana one day.

Once, Ismaa‘eel’s father suddenly fell very ill! His sickness became worse and worse, until three days later, he passed away. Because his mother was alone, Ismaa‘eel had to leave madrasah and help her at home. They had very little money, and sometimes there was no food in the home for days. Ismaa‘eel and his mother would be starving, but they never ever complained or begged. They remained patient and happy with whatever Allah Ta‘ala had decided for them.

There was an old farmer who had a pet goat. He used to play with it, feed it and make it sleep in his room every night. One day, he decided to take his goat for a walk. As he left his home, three hungry crooks saw him with his goat. They made a plan to steal the goat and have a big braai.

The first crook came to the farmer and said, “Wow! What a big dog you have!” The farmer became angry and shouted, “You fool! Can’t you see that it’s a goat?” The crook said, “No! It’s a dog!” and he walked away.
