Story of a Family and their Donkey

Once, a father and son were travelling. The father was sitting on a donkey whilst the son was pulling the reigns of the donkey. They decided to take turns riding the donkey. One hour the father would ride and the next hour the son would ride. They suddenly came upon a village when the people shouted out to the father, “Don’t you have brains? You, a big dunce on the donkey while your little son is pulling the donkey!” The father immediately jumped down and put the son on the donkey and they carried on travelling.


Ikhlaas (sincerity)

Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan:

You have been commanded to worship Allah Ta’ala with sincerity.

It is mentioned in a Hadith:

The Importance of the Maktab (Primary Madrasah)

The importance of the Maktab (primary Madrasah) can never be over emphasized. If the Ulama do not pay attention to this important branch of elementary education, it could result in the retrogression of the Ummah. Deen will gradually leave the Ummah and in a few generations the only thing that may be left of Islaam will be the Muslim names as is evident in some countries and indeed in some areas of South Africa as well.

[Hadhrat Moulana Qaasim Sema Saheb (RA)]
