Never Be Fooled By What You See

A little boy was taking a walk in a park when he saw a colourful wasp. He very much liked the wasp, so he decided to catch it. However, just as he was about to grab the wasp, it took off and flew away.

As hard as the boy tried, he could not catch the wasp. All the boy could see was how pretty the wasp was. He did not know about the sting the wasp carried.

The wasp eventually grew tired and hid inside a rose. The boy grabbed the rose with the wasp inside and because the wasp had no other option, he stung the boy.

The boy started to scream and cry. In fact, the sting was so severe that he even fainted. All this happend because he was fooled by what he saw and did not think about the consequences.

This story teaches us not to look only at what we can see, but to look further to what something really is. This is the case with sins. Sins seem very nice on the outside and may be plenty of fun.

However, they are very harmful. We should therefore never be fooled by how things look on the outside and we must also save others from doing this.

For example, if you have not learnt your work, you may think that you will get out of trouble by telling a lie. Although this may save you from the little problem of getting punished, you will soon have to add many more lies to the story.

This will make Allaah angry and if your parents or teacher find out that you have lied, they will lose trust in you and will never want to believe anything else you say.

People will then no longer respect you. You see, although they may be a small amount of benefit in lying, the harms are much more.
