Dear parents, be careful what you teach!

Dear Parents,

* Tarzan lives half naked,
* Cinderella comes home at midnight,
* Pinocchio lies all the time,
* Aladdin is the king of thieves,
* Batman drives at 200 mph,
* Romeo and Juliet commit suicide out of love,
* Harry Potter uses witchcraft,
* Mickey and Minnie are more than just friends,
* Sleeping Beauty is lazy,
* Dumbo gets drunk and hallucinates,
* Snow White lives with 7 guys.

We shouldn’t be surprised children misbehave, they get it from their
storybooks and cartoons which “we” provide them…

We should instead be teaching them stories like;

*Abu Bakr (ra)’s loyalty and undying service for his master,
*Umar ibn Khattaab (ra)’s love for justice and tolerance,
*Uthman ibn Affan (ra)’s level of shyness and modesty,
*Ali ibn Abi-Talib {ra)’s show of courage and bravery,
*Khalid ibn Waleed (ra)’s desire of combating evil,
*Fatima bint Muhammad (ra)‘s love and respect to her father,
*Sallahuddin AI-Ayubi (ra)’s conquest of the promised land,
Above all, we should teach them about Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala).

If we are teaching our kids stories from the authentic Qur’an and Sunnah
AND implementing it, lnshaAllah they will never be lead astray.
A reminder for myself first and foremost.
