A teacher from Primary School asks her students to write an essay about what they would like for
At the end of the day while marking the essays, she reads one that made her very emotional.
Her husband, that had just walked in saw her crying and asked her: What happened?
She answered: Read this. It’s one of my students essays: O God, tonight I ask you something very special. Make me into a television. I want to take its place.
Live like the TV in my house. Have my own special place. And have my family around ME. To be taken
seriously when I talk. I want to be the centre of attention and be heard without interruptions or questions. I want to receive the same special care that the TV receives when it is not working. Have the company of my dad when he arrives home from work, even when he is tired. And I want my mom to want
me when she is sad and upset, instead of ignoring me. And I want my brothers to fight to be with me. I want to feel that the family just leaves everything aside, every now and then, just to spend some time
with me. And last but not least make it that I can make them all happy and entertain them. Lord I don’t ask you for much. I
just want to live like every TV.
At that moment the husband said: ‘My God, poor kid. What horrible parents! She looked up at him and said: ‘That essay is our son’s.
Even though the above story is just a story, let us take away a beneficial message from it, in’sha’Allah. Ask yourself, do I treat my TV/pc/mobile phone better
than my children or Do my Children take preference over technology.
