ESSAY FROM A CHILD
A teacher from Primary School asks her students to write an essay about what they would like God to do for them…
At the end of the day while marking the essays, she read one that made her very emotional.
Her husband, that had just walked in saw her crying and asked her:
– What happened?
She answered – Read this. Its one of my students essays.
Oh God, tonight I ask you something very special:
Make me into a television.
I want to take its place. Live like the TV in my house. Have my own special place, and have my family around ME.
To be taken seriously when I talk….
I want to be the Center of attention and be heard without interruptions or questions.
I want to receive the same special care that the TV receives when it is not working.
Have the company of my dad when he arrives home from work, even when he is tired.
And I want my mom to want me when she is sad and upset, instead of ignoring me… and… I want my brothers to fight to be with me… I want to feel that family just leaves everything aside, every now and then, just to spend some time with me.
And last but not least make it that I can make them all happy and entertain them…
God I dont ask you for much… I just want to live like every TV.
At that moment the husband said: – My God, poor kid. What horrible parents!
She looked up at him and said: That essay is our son!!!
So true isnt it?
After coming back from work or school we immediately switch it ON and are glued to it for hours together.
If our mom, dad, brother or sister wants to have a word with us the expectation is only after completion of a serial or sports match isn’t it. We get doubly irritated if anyone interrupts in between our TV show.
But do we show the same dedication in reading Quran or offering Namaz/Salah. We always tend to complete it at the earliest as if someone has tied us up with the responsibility which we are fulfilling for the sake of fulfilling it.
Lets hope Insha Allah in coming days we also are glued and are fully busy in reading Quran and also offering our Salah.
