The Devoted Mother

A mother duck and her little ducklings were

on their way to the lake one day. The ducklings

were very happy following their mother and

quack-quacking along the way. All of a sudden the

mother duck saw a fox in the distance. She was

frightened and shouted, “Children, hurry to the

lake. There’s a fox!”

The ducklings hurried towards the lake. The mother duck wondered

what to do. She began to walk back and forth dragging one wing

on the ground. When the fox saw her he became happy. He said

to himself, “It seems that she’s hurt and can’t fly! I can easily

catch and eat her!” Then he ran towards her. The mother duck ran, leading the fox away from the lake. The

fox followed her. Now he wouldn’t be able to harm her ducklings.

The mother duck looked towards her ducklings and saw

that they had reached the lake. She was relieved, so she

stopped and took a deep breath. The fox thought she was tired

and he came closer, but the mother duck quickly spread her

wings and rose up in the air. She landed in the middle of the

lake and her ducklings swam to her. The fox stared in disbelief

at the mother duck and her ducklings. He could not reach them

because they were in the middle of the lake.

Moral : Save the others first than save yourself with

your cleverness.

Hadeeth Newsflash

Reported by Jundub bin `Abdullah (RA): The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "Once someone said: `By Allah! Allah will not forgive such and such (a person).' Thereupon Allah, the Exalted and the Glorious, said: `Who is he who takes an oath in My Name that I will not grant pardon to so-and-so? I have granted pardon to so-and-so and rendered your good deeds fruitless.''' [Muslim]
