Pride in Islam: Universe and its creatures are not created without purpose (Moral Stories)

Universe and its creatures are not created without purposeAllah (SWT) is Hakim (wise). So, everything He created has many uses. The human mind cannot comprehend these facts. The human mind can assess and comprehend only things it has been familiarized with and things perceived through five sense organs.

Our religion has not stated explicitly the reasons, the ultimate divine causes in the creation of numerous beings. As it commands us to observe the Hikmat (wisdom) in His creations and thus to draw the necessary lessons from them, people must try hard to take lessons to the best of their ability and knowledge.

You have created all things properly and perfectly, but their genuine nature is a mystery to everybody.

According to one of the verse (3:191) in Noble Qur'an, Allah (SWT) has not created anything in this Universe without purpose and defined assignment of duty. Those who ponder and reflect upon the Universe will know this fact.

When we believe nothing in this universe is created without any use or purpose, then we as human beings should never feel ourselves as useless and insignificant, because no one is dispensable, no one is useless or no one is lesser in the eyes of the creator, Almighty Allah (SWT).

The first sentence of Kalima (Shahada) is the basis of the life of a Muslim. "There is no God." depicts that nothing in the Universe is superior to Allah (SWT) and thus nothing in the world is to be worshipped, however powerful they may seem to be. It is only when one rejects (negates) every idea of nature worship, idol worship and human worship, that one is able to believe in the positive truth of Tawheed.

The sentence has both a negative as well as positive aspect. Both aspects are instrumental in creating the belief that all human beings are equal. When nobody is superior, no one is inferior or useless. The superiority lies only with Allah (SWT) and the aim of life to get close to Him being accessible to one and all.

Indeed Allah has created the human in the best of forms. Noble Qur'an (95:4)

As a matter of fact Allah (SWT) created us humankind as Ashraful Makhluqat, the greatest of all creation. So no human is a small person, it is just ordinary people like you and me that are capable of doing extraordinary things. As saying goes, "Even the smallest person can change the course of the future." Allah (SWT) didn't put me or you on earth just for the purpose of filling this world with more humankind. But rather has a specific responsibility for all of us to fulfill.

Pride in Islam: Ant and the Bird Story with Moral

Pride in IslamOnce upon a time, there was a long period of drought in the animal kingdom. As a result, almost every day the animals went in search of water.

One day when Ant woke up, she realized that she did not have enough water to quench her trust, so she went in search of water.

Fortunately, after walking a while, she came across a river and just as she was about to drink some of the water, she slipped and fell into the river.

She struggled to come out but to no avail. Her continuous shouts for help did not help because of the obscure nature of the location of the river.

Ant did her best to come out but anytime she tried she slipped into the river again and again. Minutes later, she heard Bird chirping from one of the trees.

Ant realized that it was her last hope so with the little strength left in her she called out for the Bird loudly. Bird heard her distress call and was able to trace it to the river. However, she did not know who had called her for help so she got closer to the river.

'Who is there?' Bird shouted. 'It's me,' Ant replied.

Ant then begged Bird to rescue her and she would repay her later. Bird laughed over that statement because she considered Ant too little an animal to offer any assistance to her. Nevertheless, she agreed to help her.

She threw a leaf into the river and shouted for Ant to climb onto it. The leaf then floated to the side of the river and with that Ant was rescued.

Ant thanked Bird and reassured her that she would help her one day. Again, Bird laughed over that and flew away. 'How can a small Ant help me?' she said to herself.

Few months after that incident, a hunter went to the forest in search of an animal to kill for food. Luckily, he saw the same Bird making her nest.

'Ah,' thought the hunter, 'I will kill and eat this bird.' By that time the hunter had removed his gun which hung by his side and was getting it ready to kill the Bird. Ant, who was close by, noticed that the hunter wanted to shoot Bird and thought this would be the appropriate period to repay Bird for her good deed towards her.

Ant climbed onto the hunter's leg. She ran through his back, then to his shoulders before landing on the arm that held the gun and bit it as hard as it could. The hunter jumped and fired his gun into the air. Bird was startled by the shot and flew away to safety.

Bird moved to a safer place and when she looked down, she realized it was Ant that had saved her life.

Later when they met, Bird thanked Ant. 'We will always be friends,' she said, and Ant answered, 'Remember, one good turn deserves another.'

Pride in Islam: Lion and the Mouse Story with Moral

Lion and the Mouse Story with MoralIt was a hot day and the great lion was sleeping under the sun. Suddenly it felt something tickling its face, waking it up. The lion was not happy as it had been enjoying its sleep. Angrily it slapped at what ever it was that was on its face.

A tiny mouse fell to the ground.

I shall kill you for waking me up! The angry lion said and prepared to do just that.

Please, I ask you to save my life - I have a big family to feed and in my hurry I did not notice you in time among the long grass, the mouse replied.

Why would I save your pitiful life? You are of no use to anyone - you are even too small to eat! The lion said.

No one's size tells the value of their life, the mouse said, but I make you a promise: if you save my life, one day I shall repay that debt.

There is no way you could ever save a lion, the king of jungle's life. Besides, there's nothing here to threaten me! But go and feed your big family and never show your face to me again. The lion laughed and let the mouse go.

At that lion closed his eyes again and the mouse ran to safety. The lion might have forgotten about him in a day or two, but the mouse swore to keep its oath. It followed in secrecy the movements of the great lion and when it found a camp of hunters (and stole some bread from them), it knew the time was near. The lion was the handsomest around, and they would surely try to kill him.

Hunt they did, but they did not kill the lion. They caught him alive and tied him tightly to the ground with the help of ropes. The lion lay there helplessly waiting for its fate.

There was a rustling sound in the grass and when the lion opened its eyes, a tiny mouse was in front of it. The lion recognized the mouse as the same one it had almost killed a long time ago. Without a word the mouse set to work and during the night it gnawed the ropes. The lion could hear it mumble under its breath "Oh yes I can ... I can do this ..."

Tiny mouse worked tirelessly and so, just before the sun rose, the lion could quietly rise to its feet and escape to safety.

Before it disappeared it looked at the exhausted tiny mouse and said quietly:

Never again shall I look down upon the small ones in contempt. You taught me a valuable lesson. No matter how big and powerful you are, there are situations where you still need the help of others. I shall remember your help and no longer shall lions kill mouse as long as I am alive.

Never boastful or proud because it is sickness: Turtle Story with Moral

Never boastful or proud because it is sicknessOnce upon a time, there was a magic fruit tree. It was tall and had different kinds of fruits: Bananas, Oranges, Grapes, Apples, Pineapples and many more. The fruit would ripen each year in the middle of the summer when all the other trees were dry and sickly; but the magic tree would never let any of its fruit fall unless the magic words were spoken to it.

One summer there was a famine throughout the jungle. The animals began to get hungry and thirsty because all the regular trees had dried up early that year. The magic tree had fruits that looked ripe and succulent but none of the animals could get them, not even the Giraffe. "What shall we do?" cried the hippopotamus, "We shall all starve unless one of us gets the magic words from the wise old eagle." The wise old eagle lived on top of a steep mountain many miles away.

The Stag then jumped onto a big rock and said, "I will get the magic words. I am fast and strong and I will be back before you know it."

The animals all cheered with excitement as the Stag headed out of the little camp.

The stag bounded off toward the mountain and climbed the rocky rifts as fast as lightning. When he got to the top he saw the eagle. "Eagle!" gasped the Stag trying to recover his breath, "Eagle . . . (gasp) . . . I need the magic words for the tree . . . (gasp). We're very hungry; please tell me."

The eagle said sternly, "Allahu Akbar (God is great)." "Is that all? Is that's it?" said the Stag. "That's easy. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar." The Stag thanked the Eagle and as he started his descent down the mountain he repeated the magic words to himself so as not to forget them. When he got near the bottom of the mountain he began to gallop very fast and not look where he was going.

On the path in front of him there was a low tree branch. The Stag's antlers caught the branch and, with a mighty crash, the Stag found himself flying through the air and fell hard on the ground. He shook his head, stood up, and tried to remember the magic words. "Abracadabra; no that's not right," he muttered, "Open Sesame; No that's not right either." He began to mumble to himself trying to remember the lost words and as he did so, he walked very slowly with his head down, for he was very discouraged.

As he made his way toward the tree the animals cheered and gathered around him asking him, "What are the magic words?" He replied with a hurt look on his face, "I forgot." "What! You forgot!" screamed the Hippopotamus, "How could you forget?" The Stag, almost whispering, said, "I forgot." Everyone was sad, they were sure they were going to starve. The mothers and children began to cry.

Then a loud roar sounded through the jungle. Everyone hushed as the Lion came forward. "Who's the king of the jungle?" he roared. "You are," quivered the animals. "Right! And I'm going up to that mountain and bring those magic words down."

Saying that, he took off toward the mountain. The Lion paced himself well and when he got to the top he roared, "Eagle, give me those words to that magic tree or I'll slice you in two!" The Eagle, undisturbed by the Lion's threat, said simply, "Allahu Akbar!" "That's it?" laughed the Lion, "That numskull Stag couldn't remember that?" And the Lion climbed down the mountain. The sun began to get hot and the Lion knew he was more than half way back to the magic tree. His eyes caught a flat, comfortable rock nearby and all of a sudden, the lion felt sleepy. "I might as well get some shut-eye for a couple of minutes," he said yawning.

He stretched himself out on the warm rock and promptly fell to a deep sleep. When he woke up; the Sun was near the horizon. He got up on all fours and was a little worried. "Hey, I better get back. Now, what were those magic words?

Oh yeah, Allakhazam. No, that isn't right. Maybe Ala Kazoo. No, that isn't right either." After talking to himself for an hour the Lion realized he forgot the words. He meandered slowly home, his head down, dragging his tail, in shame. It was dark when he came back to the magic tree, but all the animals were up waiting for him. They started to get excited and began to cheer and shout. "Quiet!" roared the Lion, "I have something to say." The animals hushed, but they were still excited. Their leader, their hero, the king of the jungle had brought the magic words and was going to save them from starvation. "I forgot the magic words," he said. The words had scarcely left his mouth when the animals burst out in a wailing that was never seen before. Mothers and children bawled while the fathers wept a tear at a time trying to restrain themselves.

Then, the Turtle came forward and said softly, "I'll bring the words." At first, nobody heard him so he had to repeat himself many times. After the third announcement the Hippopotamus finally said, "Please, don't joke with us. We are all going to die and you're talking nonsense. How can you bring the words when the Lion and the Stag could not? Leave us."

So, while all the animals were crying and wailing, the Turtle crawled out of the camp toward the mountain. He kept going steadily, not stopping for rest or water. When he got to the top of the mountain he asked the Eagle, "Excuse me, could you tell me what the magic words are?" "Allahu Akbar," said the Eagle. The turtle thanked the Eagle and started his long journey home repeating the word every few steps.

The Sun was hot and the Turtle was very tired. When he passed the flat rock where the Lion had slept the Turtle said to himself, "Allahu Akbar," and moved on. When he came to the low branch where the Stag had fallen, the Turtle said to himself, "Allahu Akbar," and crawled on.

When the animals spotted him slowly crawling toward camp, some of them ran to met him. Most, however, were too weak and couldn't move. The Zebra asked the Turtle, "What are the magic words? Tell us, tell us." The Turtle did not stop or raise his head but kept on crawling toward the Tree. Every step took a lot of effort. His head was aching, and there was so much dust in his eyes he could barely see. Now, all the animals were asking, "What are the words, the magic words, tell us." The Turtle kept on mumbling the magic words just to himself until he got to the foot of the tree. He now raised his head and saw the fruit all ripe and succulent. He looked around and all the animals had their eyes fixed on him. These were the same animals who laughed at him several days ago. He then turned his head back to the magic tree and shouted, "Allahu Akbar." Nothing happened at first.

Then, gradually, a low rumbling below the tree could be heard. It grew louder, and louder and then the ground started to shake. All the animals were frightened and huddled close together. Then the tree started to shake and the fruit started falling: Bananas, Oranges, Grapes, Apples, and much more. After a minute the vibrations stopped and the rumbling went away. The hungry animals fell upon the fruit that now lay on the ground. They all had great feast, and at the end of the celebration the Turtle was crowned king of the jungle.
