Do you know? / The Banana Peel

Dear children! Whenever we eat banana, grapefruit, or any other fruit, we should never throw the peel on the road or the sidewalk. Our little carelessness or negligence can lead to very harmful consequences, even it can cause a fatal accident.

Our beloved Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ has narrated: Once, my elder brother was coming to Karachi from Punjab. At Hyderabad station, he got off the train to drink water. As the train started to go slowly after giving an indication through the whistle, my brother started running to catch the train and slipped by stepping on a banana peel. He tried to grab the door handle of the train but could not grasp it properly. Thus he lost his balance and fell down on the railway track, got run over and passed away. The banana peel was obviously thrown away by someone and it finally turned out deadly.

Dear children! You have learnt that how single banana peel resulted in someone’s death. Similarly, someone may become permanently disabled due to a fracture caused by slipping by stepping on a peel. So, be good children and make a firm intention not to throw away banana peel and any other peel of any fruit etc., or any garbage instead use dustbin and trash cans اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه.
