Inspirational Stories for Kids: Boy who cried Wolf Story

Boy who cried Wolf StoryOnce there was a shepherd boy who had to look after a flock of sheep. One day, he felt bored and decided to play a trick on the villagers. He shouted, "Help! Wolf! Wolf!"

The villagers heard his cries and rushed out of the village to help the shepherd boy. When they reached him, they asked, "Where is the wolf?"

The shepherd boy laughed loudly, "Ha, Ha, Ha! I fooled all of you. I was only playing a trick on you."

A few days later, the shepherd boy played this trick again.

Again he cried, "Help! Help! Wolf! Wolf!" Again, the villagers rushed up the hill to help him and again they found that boy had tricked them. They were very angry with him for being so naughty.

Then, some time later, a wolf went into the field. The wolf attacked one sheep, and then another and another. The shepherd boy ran towards the village shouting, "Help! Help! Wolf! Help! Somebody!"

The villagers heard his cries but they laughed because they thought it was another trick. The boy ran to the nearest villager and said, "A wolf is attacking the sheep. I lied before, but this time it is true!"

Finally, the villagers went to look. It was true. They could see the wolf running away and many dead sheep lying on the grass.

Moral of the Story: We may not believe someone who often tells lies, even when he tells the truth. Hence, "Don't cry Wolf when there is no Wolf!"

It is narrated that Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) has said: "Three things are the signs pf hypocrisy: breach of trust, lying and breach of promise."

Inspirational Stories for Kids: Monkey and Dolphin Story

Monkey and Dolphin StoryOne day long ago, some sailors set out to sea in their sailing ship. One of them brought his pet monkey along for the long journey.

When they were far out at sea, a terrible storm overturned their ship. Everyone fell into the sea, and the monkey was sure that he would drown. Suddenly a dolphin appeared and picked him up.

They soon reached the island and the monkey came down from the dolphin's back. The dolphin asked the monkey, "Do you know this place?"

The monkey replied, "Yes, I do. In fact, the king of the island is my best friend. Do you know that I am actually a prince?"

Knowing that no one lived on the island, the dolphin said, "Well, well, so you are a prince! Now you can be a king!"

The monkey asked, "How can I be a king?"

As the dolphin started swimming away, he answered, "That is easy. As you are the only creature on this island, you will naturally be the king!"

Moral of the Story: Those who lie and boast may end up in trouble.

Inspirational Stories for Kids: Words and Actions should be the same

Inspirational Stories for KidsThere once was a boy who loved eating sweets. He always asked for sweets from his father. His father was a poor man. He could not always afford sweets for his son. But the little boy did not understand this, and demanded sweets all the time.

The boy's father thought hard about how to stop the child asking for so many sweets. There was a very holy man living nearby at that time. The boy's father had an idea. He decided to take the boy to the great man who might be able to persuade the child to stop asking for sweets all the time.

The boy and his father went along to the great man. The father said to him, "O great saint, could you ask my son to stop asking for sweets which I cannot afford?" The great man was in difficulty, because he liked sweets himself. How could he ask the boy to give up asking for sweets? The holy man told the father to bring his son back after one month.

During that month, the holy man gave up eating sweets, and when the boy and his father returned after a month, the holy man said to the boy "My dear child, will you stop asking for sweets which your father cannot afford to give you?"

From then on, the boy stopped asking for sweets.

The boy's father asked the saint, "Why did you not ask my son to give up asking for sweets when we came to you a month ago?" The saint replied, "How could I ask a boy to give up sweets when I loved sweets myself. In the last month I gave up eating sweets."

A person's example is much more powerful than just his words. When we ask someone to do something, we must do it ourselves also. We should not ask others to do what we do not do ourselves.

Moral of the Story: Always make sure that your actions and your words are same.

Inspirational Stories for Kids: Farmer and Stork Story

Farmer and Stork StoryFinding that cranes were destroying his newly sown corn, a farmer one evening set a net in his field to catch the destructive birds. When he went to examine the net next morning he found a number of cranes and also a stork.

"Release me, I beseech you," cried the stork, "for I have eaten none of your corn, nor have I done you any harm. I am a poor innocent stork, as you may see - a most dutiful bird, I honor my father and mother. I..."

But the farmer cut him short. "All this may be true enough, I dare say, but I have caught you with those were destroying my crops, and you must suffer with the company in which you are found."

One who enters the places of evil reputes has no right to complain against a man who talks evils of him. Imam Ali (as)

Moral of the Story: People are judged by the company (Friends) they keep. or Birds of the same Feather flock together. Also read Islam and Friends

Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) was one day amongst his companions (Sahabah), when he (saw) said, "Do not be like a housefly!" Surprised, the companions asked, "And how can we be like a housefly O' Prophet of Allah (SWT)?"

"Don't you see" Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) replied, "a housefly always prefers to sit on dirt instead of a clean and pure place!"

What Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) meant to say was that one should never chose fellowship with bad people, but with those who are righteous and good as companions in life.

Inspirational Stories for Kids: Fox who got caught in the Tree Trunk Story

Once upon a time, there was a hungry fox that was looking for something to ear. He was very hungry. No matter how hard he tried, the fox could not find food. Finally he went to the edge of the forest and searched there for food. Suddenly he caught sight of a big tree with a hole in it.

Inside the hole was a package. The hungry fox immediately thought that there might be food in it, and he became very happy. He jumped into the hole and when he opened the package, he saw there were a lot of food, bread, meat and fruit in it!

An old woodcutter had placed the food in the tree trunk while he cut down trees in the forest. He was going to eat it for his lunch.

Fox who got caught in the Tree Trunk StoryThe fox happily began to eat. After the fox had finished eating, he felt thirsty and decided to leave the trunk and drink some water from a nearby spring. However, no matter how hard he tried, he could not get out of the hole. Do you know why? Yes, the fox had eaten so much food that he became too big to fit through the hole.

The fox was very sad and upset. He told himself, "I wish that I had thought a little before jumping into the hole."

Moral of the Story: Yes children, this is the result of doing something without thinking about it first.

Inspirational Stories for Kids: Scorpion and Turtle Story

Scorpion and Turtle StoryA Scorpion, being a very poor swimmer, asked a Turtle to carry Him on his back across a river.

"Are you crazy?" exclaimed the Turtle.

"You'll sting me while I'm swimming and I'll drown."

"My dear Turtle," laughed the Scorpion, "if I were to sting you, you would drown and I would go down with you. Now where is the logic in that?"

"You're right!" cried the Turtle. "Hop on!"

The Scorpion climbed aboard and halfway across the river gave the Turtle a mighty sting. As they both sank to the bottom, the Turtle resignedly said:

"Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there'd be no logic in your stinging me. Then why did you do it?"

"It has nothing to do with logic," the drowning Scorpion sadly replied. "It's just my character."

Moral of the Story: Children, be careful of whom you associate with.
