A teacher from Primary School asks her students to write a essay about what they would like God to do for them...

At the end of the day while marking the essays, she read 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:

Oh 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 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!!!

Makes you think doesn't it?????

Definitely does make you think! May Allah grant hidayat to every Muslim household to SMASH the accursed TV. As though that wasn't enough we now have the added fitnah in every household of the internet and all thats accessible on it!

Subhanallah, makes one realsie the reality of the time consumed by the t.v.
t.v/computers/laptops sure does distract one from spending time with the family. time which will not come again.

"time which will not come again."

May Allah grant us the tawfeeq to grasp this reality with our hearts and help us make the best of our time.

This post is quite powerful although it doesn't seem it. Imagine how many kids feel like this aged 3,4,5 and even teenagers? Jazakillah for this post.
