"Basim, how did the leaves change their color over night?"
Basma asked her big brother in confusion.
"I think someone came while we were sleeping last night and
painted them" He told her trying to be the knowing big brother.
Basma nodded "Yes, I think that's what happened"
"I think we should tell Abi..." Basim suggested
Basma nodded her head in agreement, and they both ran back
to their house yelling "Abi, Abi!"
Their father came out of the shed with a hammer in hand, "Yes
"Abi, Abi! Someone came last night and painted all of the
leaves!" The two children yelled out at the same time.
Their Abi laughed and said "No, no one painted them..." And
then he brought the Aayah from surah Mumineen
"And verily Allaah is the best creator"
The children looked up at their father in confusion "So what
happened to them?"
"The leaves change their colors depending on the season, somewhat
like how you change your clothes. There are four seasons and in each season something happens with the world. Sometimes it
gets hotter or colder, rain or snow falls and the leaves change their colors all of this happends by Allaahs permission."
Abi said while smiling.
Basim and Basma's eyes widened in amazement
"Wow! I wish I could do that." Basim said.
Their Abi smiled and shook his head "Only Allaah is capable
of doing those things, now run along and finish your adventures so that you have a story to tell your Ummi and I at dinner
The two children smiled happily and ran off into the now reddish-gold
-Until Next Time Inshaa Allaah-
