A little boy named Muawiyah went with his sister Asma to their grandparents farm for a holiday. Muawiyah took his slingshot and practiced hitting targets in the woods with no success. Getting discouraged, he trudged home for supper. He spied Grandma’s pet duck and impulsively took a shot at it. He hit the duck and killed it.
In a panic, he hid the dead duck in a woodpile only to see his sister watching! Asma had seen it all but said nothing. After supper, Grandma asked Asma to help with the dishes. Asma said, ‘Muawiyah wants to help,’ and whispered to him, ‘Remember the duck?’ So Muawiyah did the dishes.
We commit sins and think no one has seen. Then the devil keeps us as slaves because of our sins. Once we realise Allah saw all our sins, we should turn to him in repentance. He loves us and is always ready to forgive us. For how long are we going to remain slaves to the devil?
