The Boy And The Apple 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, and 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 sad.

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 sad. 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 sit down with me and rest." The man sat down

and the tree was glad and smiled with tears.

 

Moral : Always try to give and be thankful for whatever you get.

Reported by K`ab bin Malik (RA): Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "Two hungry wolves sent in the midst of a flock of sheep are no more destructive to them than a man's greed for wealth and fame is to his Deen.'' [At-Tirmidhi]
