The Blessed Animal : Inspirational Story as a Parent


That day Tariq wrote something so special in my eyes.

It was the first time, I felt the uncountable hours sharing with him the stories of Prophet Muhammad SAW and the many hours he spend watching National Geographic Wild became one.

In his English class, he was tasked to write a short story on any animals of his choice.

Knowing Tariq’s tendency to mix his imagination with facts, his teacher said..,

...Tariq, remember it has to be factual... only facts... not imagination, okay Tariq.., said his teacher.

Okay..!, replied Tariq enthusiastically

And Tariq started writing this...

Title: The Blessed Animal

Why are spiders blessed? Spiders are the animal that saved Prophet Muhammad SAW. Even if you are afraid of them, there is actually no reason to be. They are the animal that saved Prophet Muhammad SAW.

Now let’s talk about a breed of spider. It is very poisonous. It can kill a person in an hour, I think (picture of a thinking man)😂

It is known as Black Widow. It is agile and fast. It is fast as a chicken running at full speed.(okay this is funny🤣)

Are there any other species of spiders? Yes there are about 1,050 species of spiders.

One of the species is called the yellow spider, I think (picture of a man thinking 😅) Regardless the spider can shoot it's web 25 meters long.

Well, that's all for today. Good bye. See you again. Tariq zooming out.

MashaAllah TabarakAllah, Tariq!!!
