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!

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!

Ask our children:

1. What does it mean to be jealous?

2. Are Muslims allowed to be jealous of other people?

3. If we are jealous of someone, what should we do?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a little girl named Juwairiyah who was very, very blessed by Allah Ta‘ala. Allah Ta‘ala had blessed her by making her pretty, intelligent, and giving her the best toys and clothes. But, even though Juwairiyah had the best of everything, she was always jealous of other people.

Ask our children:

1. If our parents or teachers scold us, what should we do?

2. If we do something wrong or make a mistake, what should we do?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a little girl named Saarah who was very helpful, very kind and very intelligent. However, her parents and teachers always complained that she had one problem – nobody could tell her anything!

If she was misbehaving and being naughty, and her father scolded her, she would immediately begin to cry! If she was being lazy and did not want to pack her toys, and her mother told her to stop being lazy, she would begin to tantrum and scream! Also, if she did not know her sabaq and her aapa told her to learn it again, she would start to cry!
