Story for month of June


Mr. Hasan had three sons: Faruq, Abdullah and Qasim. He loved them very much. He wanted to see them grow up as good Muslims. Mr. Hasan himself was a good Muslim. He did his best to obey all commands of Allah.

One day, Mr. Hasan thought to test his sons. He gave each of them some sweets and said, "Eat the sweets in such a place where no one can see you, and when you have done so, come back to me."

Faruq took the sweets and went to his room. He shut the door from the inside and ate the sweets, thinking that no one could see him there.

Abdullah went to the cellar of the house and he was sure that nobody was there. He ate the sweets in the darkness of the cellar.

Qasim thought and thought about a place where he could eat the sweets without anyone seeing him. He could think of no such place. Every time he thought about a place, he remembered that Allah could see him, and he did not eat the sweets.

Faruq and Abdullah came back and told Mr. Hasan about what they did. Qasim came and returned the sweets to his father saying, "There is no place which is secret from Allah, and so I did not eat the sweets."

Mr. Hasan was very pleased with Qasim. He told Faruq and Abdullah to learn a lesson from their brother Qasim. Mr. Hasan also said, "My dear sons, always keep in mind that Allah knows everything and He sees everything. He is with us all the time. So we should not do anything bad even in secret."

Allah cares about us and loves us. That is why he always looks after us. He watches us and he is always with us no matter where we are. That is why we should try to be the best muslims we can be, so when Allah watches us he sees nothing but the good deeds that we perform for him.

Story for month of July


Our parents are a gift from Allah. They care for us, look after us and help us as we grow up. They are kind to us. They love us. They care so much for our comfort and happiness. So, we must care for our parents. We must always be kind to them. We should listen to what they say. Our parents always think of what is good for us. Here is a story about caring for parents, because it is important to do that to be a good Muslim.

There was once a great man, named Sharfuddin Yahya. He cared a lot for his parents when he was a boy. He was obedient and kind to them. One night his mother was thirsty and asked Sharfuddin for a glass of water. When Sharfuddin came to his mother with the glass of water, he found her asleep. He did not think it wise to disturb his mother's sleep. So, he kept standing there with the glass in his hand until his mother awoke.

His mother opened her eyes after a few hours and found Sharfuddin standing beside her with the glass of water. She asked him, "My dear son, have you been standing here all this time?"

Sharfuddin said, "Yes mother, I have been waiting for you to wake up, to give you a glass of water".

Sharfuddin's mother was very pleased with him. She blessed him and prayed to Allah to make Sharfuddin a great man. When he grew up, Sharfuddin was really a very great man of his time.

Children, you should care for your parents like Sharfuddin did. Never say a harsh word to them. Obey what they say. Behave well with your parents. Do your best at school. Then your parents will be happy. Allah, too will be happy with you. Indeed, Allah commands us to be good to our parents.

A good muslim child is kind to his parents. He cares for them. So do your best to do these things.
