In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Kind
Assalamu 'alaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuhu
Aimaan saw a banana skin on the road.
He went over it.
Hasan saw a banana skin on the road.
He went around it.
Faizah saw a banana skin on the road.
She jumped over it.
Khalidah saw a banana skin on the road.
She hopped over it.
Salwa saw a banana skin on the road.
She stepped on it, fell down and screamed, "Ouch"
"Ya Allah! Alhamdulillah."
Zainab saw a banana skin on the road.
She picked it up and threw it into the dustbin,
When you ... remove stones, thorns and bones from the road,
it counts to you as "sadaqah".
Transmitted by Tirmidhi
When you remove harm from the road it is a sadaqah. You will earn a reward from Allah SWT. You will help to protect people from being hurt.
At home you must remove your toys and tidy up after playing.
If someone steps on the toys they can fall and hurt themselves. You will also earn a reward for helping your mother. Remember Allah SWT says in the Qur'an, be kind to your mother. When you help to tidy up after playing you are being kind to her.
