The Boy Who Cried "WOLF!"

Once there was a shepherd boy who had to look after a flock of sheep. One day, he felt bored and decided to play a trick on the villagers. He shouted, “Help! Wolf! Wolf!” The villagers heard his cries and rushed out of the village to help the shepherd boy.

When they reached him, they asked, “Where is

the wolf?” The shepherd boy laughed loudly,

“Ha, Ha, Ha! I fooled all of you. I was only playing

a trick on you.” A few days later, the shepherd

boy played this trick again. Again he cried, “Help!

Help! Wolf! Wolf!” Again, the villagers rushed up

the hill to help him and again they found that boy

had tricked them. They were very angry

with him for being so naughty.

Then, some time later, a wolf went into the

field. The wolf attacked one sheep, and then

another. The shepherd boy ran towards the

village shouting, “Help! Help! Wolf! Help!

Somebody!” The villagers heard his cries but

they laughed because they thought it was

another trick. The boy ran to the nearest

villager and said, “A wolf is attacking the

sheep. I lied before, but this time it is true!”

Finally, the villagers went to look. It was true. They

could see the wolf running away and many dead

sheep lying on the grass.


Moral : Never play such pranks that can lead

you into trouble.

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]
