It was a sunny day and fox was walking across the fields. Soon he came to a vineyard. As he came nearer, he could see some bunches of juicy grapes. The fox looked carefully around him. He had to make sure that he was safe from the hunters. He decided to steal some before anyone came along.

He jumped upwards but he could not reach the grapes. He jumped again as high as he could. He still could not reach them. The grapes were just too high for him! He was not ready to give up. He backed off, took some running steps and leapt into the air towards the grapes. Again he failed to reach them. It was getting dark, and he was getting angry. His legs hurt with all that running and jumping. At last he stopped trying. As he walked away, he said to himself, "I don't really want those grapes. I'm sure they are too sour to eat."

MORAL: Sometimes when we cannot get what we want, we pretend that it is not worth having.

The first 10 Days of Thul Hijjah

It is from the Sunnah to recite Tahleel (saying Laa ilaaha ill-Allah (There is none worthy of worship but Allah)), Takbeer (saying Allahu akbar (Allah is most great)), Tahmeed (saying al-hamdu Lillah (praise be to Allah)), and Tasbeeh (saying Subhan-Allah (Glory be to Allah)), during the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah. We should say these words out loud in the Masjid, homes and every place in which it is permissible to remember Allah so that we can perform this act of worship openly and proclaim the greatness of Allah.

Allah says in Surah Al-Hajj {That they may witness things that are of benefit to them, and mention the Name of Allah on appointed days..} [22:28]

The majority of scholars are of the view that the “appointed days” are the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah, because it was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the appointed days are the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah.
