A woman narrates a marvelous story and says: I was on a visit to one of my friends house. One of her daughters, who was about three years old, came in, stood behind her and pulled on her dress saying: Mom we did not build a house in Jannah today. I thought I misheard her. Then her siblings joined her and they all repeated the same thing. My friend saw the curiosity on my face and smiled and said to me: Do you want to see how we build a mansion in Jannah? I stood and watched as the mother and her children sat around her and recited Surat Al-ikhlas ten times.

When they finished they all said excitedly with one voice: Alhamdullah we built a house in Paradise. Then the mother asked: What do you want to add to this palace? The children replied that they wanted to add treasures. Then they began chanting (There is no mighty nor power except in Allah).

Then she asked them: Which of you wants to drink from the hands of the Prophet of Allah peace be upon him and never feel thirsty again? They all began to say: (Allahumm Salli Ala Muhammad wa ala aali Muhammad Kma sallayeta ala Ibrahim wa alaa aali Ibrahim innaka Hameedon Majeed wa Barek Ala Muhammad wa alaa Aali Muhammad Kama Barakta Ala Ibrahim wa Ala Aali Ibrahim fil Aalamin inkaHameed Majeed).

They followed it with praising to Allah. Then each of them went back to what they were doing from studying and playing with toys.

I asked her how did you do that? She replied: my children love sitting with me and rejoice when i gather them and sit among them, and I wanted to exploit it and teach them how to praise and thank Allah in a way that their tiny minds can understand. They see palaces in children's programs and wish to live in them, and watch cartoon heroes who are struggling to get treasures.

This mother will be rewards with deeds whenever one of her children reads or recites these Athkar. It will be an ongoing charity .. It is the best investment in the world and the Hereafter ... I have read this over and over and I still see it one of the best I have read.

Islamic educational style is beautiful. Teach it to your your children and spread it everywhere.

Trying to explain to our five-year-old daughter how much computers had changed, my husband pointed to our brand-new personal computer and told her that when he was in college, a computer with the same amount of power would have been the size of a house.

Wide-eyed, our daughter asked, "How big was the mouse?"
