AMINA GETS HURT

Assalamu-alaykum Welcome back friend guess what

My mum was so cross when we were playing outside. My sister, Amina, jumped off the swing and hurt her leg.

She cried so much and my mum gave me a big row for not looking after her. I didn't know she was going to jump off the swing!

Amina was the best at skipping in our school, She could do criss-cross, backwards, doubles and on one leg. She was the best.

Now at playtime, she sits there watching everyone else enjoying themselves and I feel so sorry for her.

I took for granted all these blessings Allah has given me. Like my sight, hearing and health. Its only when I see my sister sitting there that I realised.

I'm going to make her a get-well soon card for teaching me this important lesson -maybe you should make one too

UWAIS QARNI

At the time of the prophet (pbuh) there was a great man called Uwais Qarni. He was a Muslim but did not become a Sahabi because he had never met the prophet (pbuh).

All his life he wanted to meet the prophet (pbuh) but he couldn't because his mother was really old and needed to be looked after. Uwais dedicated his life to her service.

Uwais sent a message to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) asking him what to do. The Prophet (pbuh) explained that his mother is a blessing for him and a means for entering paradise. The Prophet (pbuh) also said it is better to look after his mother than to come and meet him.

Uwais was such a great and respected man that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) advised Abu Bakr and Umar to ask Uwais to make dua for them if they ever met him.

IN ILLNESS AND HEALTH

One of the greatest people to walk on this Earth was the prophet Ayyub (as). Allah had blessed this prophet with many good things in life. Ayyub had good health, lots of money, a loving family and a good living. He was very grateful to Allah for everything Allah had blessed him with.

Allah decided to test Ayyub (as) by taking away all these things from him including his health. Ayyub (as) became ill and his body became riddled with insects and disease. In fact, all his body was afflicted apart from his heart and his tongue.

Ayyub still remained grateful to Allah as well as being patient and pious. He would spend his time in worshipping Allah and never complained to anyone about his situation nor did he grumble.

The people became worried that this illness might be passed onto them so they banished him from this town. Ayyub had to move far away from the town in the place where people dumped their rubbish. His family and friends had left him and he became a very poor and lonely person with only his wife to look after him.

Even in this state, Ayyub still continued to worship Allah and remained a good person. He never complained but instead was grateful to Allah for whatever little Allah had given him. He remained in this state for many years.

Ayyub made a prayer and Allah cured him of all his illnesses. Allah restored his life with double the blessings as before! Ayyub (as) had passed this test from Allah by showing gratitude in life.
