View Full Version : A Little Boy and A tree

A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree. A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday. He climbed to the treetop, ate the apples, took a nap under the shadow...he loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him.

Time went by...the little boy had grown up and he no longer played around the tree every day. One day, the boy came back to the tree and he looked sad . "Come and play with me" the tree asked the boy. "I am no longer a kid, I do not play around trees any more" the boy replied. "I want toys. I need money to buy them." "Sorry, but I do not have money... but you can pick all my apples and sell them. So, you will have money." The boy was so excited. He grabbed all the apples on the tree and left happily.

The boy never came back after he picked the apples. The tree was deeply saddened.

One day, the boy who now turned into a man returned and the tree was excited "Come and play with me" the tree said. "I do not have time to play. I have to work for my family. We need a house for shelter. Can you help me ? " " Sorry, but I do not have any house. But you can chop off my branches to build your house." So the man cut all the branches of the tree and left happily. The tree was glad to see him happy but the man never came back since then. The tree was again lonely and upset.

One hot summer day, the man returned and the tree was delighted. "Come and play with me!" the tree said. "I am getting old. I want to go sailing to relax myself. Can you give me a boat ?" said the man . "Use my trunk to build your boat. You can sail far away and be happy." So the man cut the tree trunk to make a boat. He went sailing and never showed up for a long time.

Finally, the man returned after many years. " Sorry, my boy. But I do not have anything for you anymore. No more apples for you ..." the tree said. "No problem, I do not have any teeth to bite" the man replied. "No more trunk for you to climb on" "I am too old for that now" the man said. "I really cannot give you anything... the only thing left is my dying roots" the tree said with tears. "I do not need much now, just a place to rest. I am tired after all these years" the man replied. "Good! Old tree roots are the best place to lean on and rest, Come, come sit down with me and rest." The man sat down and the tree was glad and smiled with tears...

This is a story for everyone. The tree is like our parents When we were young, we loved to play with our Mum and Dad... When we grow up, we leave them...only come to them when we need something or when we are in trouble. No matter what, parents will always be there and give everything they could just to make you happy.

You may think the boy is cruel to the tree, but that is how most of us treat our parents. We take them for granted we don't appreciate all they do for us, UNTIL it's too late.

May Allah forgive us of our shortcomings and may He Guide us, Insha'allah Ameen

Please enlighten all your friends and your families by telling them this story, Love your Parents.............. And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour.

And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: "My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small."

"Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam ) said that Jibreel AS (angel) Said that " Woe unto him in whose presence his parents or either one of them attains old age, and (through failure to serve them) he is not allowed to enter 'Jannah".

To this Rasulullah(Sallallahu Alayhe wassallam) said Ameen!

It is very inappropriate to not acknowledge someone else's creative work and copy without attribution. The story is the classic "The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein. This is his most famous work and most families with children have a copy of the book on their shelf.

I will give Roni 24 hours to edit his post appropriately.

thanks very much Roni,but it's important as Mr.Zunaid said,cause for a while I thought it was a story that belongs to our religion.

Yes, its the classic book "The Giving Tree". And my daughter happens to be reading it this week as part of summer reading.


The book read by the writer:

Thanks Roni vai. It's a good initiative to encourage others to be dutiful. But you do what Mr. Z said.

দরকার ছিলনা ব্যান খাওয়ার, খুব সহজেই ব্যান avoid করতে পারত
