Namrood was beaten

Thousands of years ago there was a king named Namrood who was ruling the whole world. He made a false claim of being God. He would cruelly treat the one who did not acknowledge him as God and would also get him murdered. The then Nabi, Sayyiduna Ibraheem عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم, was also put into the fire because he عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم did not acknowledge Namrood as God, but by the command of Allah Almighty that fire became cool for him.

Famine

Some days after the incident in which he عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم was put into the fire, a severe famine struck, and grain (food ration and drinks) ran out. People would go to the court of Namrood and would request grain from him. In return, Namrood would make them acknowledge him as God. The one who would acknowledge him as God would get grain and the one who would not acknowledge [him as God] would return empty-handed.

Debate

Sayyiduna Ibraheem عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم also went to Namrood for getting grain. Namrood asked: Who is your Lord? He عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم replied: My Lord is the One who resurrects [the dead] and gives death. Having heard this, Namrood said: I also possess this power. Having said this, he ordered that two prisoners be brought. He released one of them and got the other one killed. Having noticed this stupidity of Namrood, Sayyiduna Ibraheem عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم said: My Lord causes the sun to rise in the east. If you are God, so make the sun rise in the west! Having heard this, Namrood got astonished and could not answer to it. After a little while, in order to overcome his embarrassment, he said: I do not have grain. Go! Go to your Lord and ask for grain.

Bag of grain

He عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم left the court of Namrood and went to his home. On the way, he عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم saw a mound of sand. He عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم filled a bag with the same sand from the mound and took it to his home in order to please his family members and slept. Just see the glory of Allah Almighty! When his wife Sayyidatuna Sarah رَضِیَ اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا opened the bag, she found it full of grain. She made loaves of bread immediately and awakened him. Having seen them, he عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم said: From where have you got these? She رَضِیَ اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا humbly replied: These have been made from the same grain which you had brought in the bag. He realized that the sand had turned to grain by [the command of] Allah Almighty. He عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم thanked Allah Almighty.

Angel and Namrood

On the other hand, Allah Almighty sent an angel to Namrood in the form of a human. The angel said: Your God says: You believe in Me, I will sustain your kingdom. Namrood said: “Which God? Only I am God.” The angel repeated what he said second time and then third time, but Namrood refused every time.

Army of Mosquitoes

As a result of this defiance of Namrood, the army of mosquitoes was inflicted by the command of Allah Almighty upon the army of Namrood. The army of mosquitoes ate the flesh of all the people of the army and sucked their blood completely, leaving only their bones. The mosquitoes were so huge in number that the sunlight could not be seen. Namrood could only see this horrific scene, but do nothing.

Namrood was beaten

Afterwards, by the command of Allah Almighty, a mosquito entered the brain of Namrood through his nose and started eating it. The intensity of the pain drove Namrood mad and he started getting his head beaten with a thick stick. Glory be to Allah Almighty! When his head was beaten with a thick stick, the mosquito would stop biting, but when his head was not beaten with a thick stick, it would start biting. Namrood was in a disgraceful situation. The person who would slap his head hard would be called his sympathizer. Four hundred years passed in the same situation, i.e. his head was beaten with a thick stick and slapped hard. Finally, Namrood died in disgrace.

Madani Pearls obtained from Parable

Dear Madani children! Allah Almighty is our Lord as well as the Lord of the whole universe. He gives us sustenance and gives us life and death. The sun and the moon rise according to the will and command of Allah Almighty. The day and night also come and pass by the will and command of Allah Almighty. The end of the one who disobeys Allah Almighty is very terrible. We should express thanks for the blessings of Allah Almighty and should never boast about anything. If we act upon these Madani pearls, اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ, we will be destined for a ‘bright future’.

Respected parents! Childhood is childhood; it is the time of playfulness and carelessness! But as children grow up, they become sensible, understand what is good and what is bad for them. It is the time when parents either reap the fruits of their upbringing or face the consequence of their carelessness. Therefore give your children both religious and worldly upbringing. اِنْ شَـآءَ اللہ عَزَّوَجَلَّ, with good intentions you will get the reward and your children will benefit you in both the world and the Hereafter.

Teach them how to cross road

Honourable parents! Do not let your children cross the road by themselves as much as possible. Always let them cross the road with you or with any one of their elders. Tell your children:

§   Never run on the road. If there is a pedestrian bridge on the road for crossing, use it. If the bridge is at a distance, even then walk for a while to reach there and cross the road using the bridge.

§   If there is a zebra crossing for crossing the road, use it.

Further, advise your children:

§   If your family members are not with you and there is no pedestrian bridge or zebra crossing for crossing the road, and you need to cross the road, so you should ask a traffic policeman: ‘Help us cross the road’.

§   If there are no traffic policemen, you should ask any elderly reliable person to help you cross the road.

§   If there is a dire compulsion to cross the road, you should cross it very carefully.

§   Do not run on the road at all. Allah Almighty forbid, if the one who runs on the road slips or stumbles, he may suffer a huge loss.

§   While crossing the road do not walk very slowly like strolling, but rather cross the road at a moderate pace.

§   Look both ways of the traffic and then move ahead.

§   It is beneficial to look both ways on the one-way road. It is also beneficial to look both ways on the footpath.

§   On a two-way traffic road, look both ways before moving forward.

§   Raise your hand to show your presence to the vehicles coming to your side.

§   Exercise caution especially in the night.

§   If there is darkness on the road, switch on the light of torch or mobile phone and protect your life.

Take care when walking on road

Honourable parents! Caution is necessary whether you walk yourself or walk with your children on the road. Walk on the footpath if available; otherwise, walk on the side of the road. Keep children to the opposite direction of vehicles. For example, if vehicles are passing on your right side and there is a wall on your left side, keep children to the left. Keep holding the children’s hand. In addition, give your children the lesson on these cautions.

Honourable parents! Just think! Children are a very great blessing of Allah Almighty! Express thanks for them. Protect these Amanats (bestowals) from Allah Almighty and edify them on religious and worldly matters! May Allah Almighty help us!

Namrood was beaten

An ant was going to home with its food. On her way, she met a yellow jacket (flying insect with a venomous stinger). Yellow jacket said to the ant, ‘You put up a hard struggle for collecting just a single particle then you carry it to your house with great efforts! Death is better than such life. Look! How enjoyable and peaceful my life is. I wander around and eat what I like and whatever that is fresh. Sometimes I even land on dining mat of the rich and find delicious food items.’

After such painful words, the yellow jacket flew away and landed on meat at the butcher’s shop who was busy cutting meat. During cutting the meat, his knife hit the yellow jacket too, tearing it into pieces. Butcher threw it away on the ground. The ant approached running there and with the help of other ants dragged the dead yellow jacket to her house so that it can eat it later.

Dear Madani children! To look upon any hard-working person as weak, insignificant and making fun of him are bad practices.
