I’ve read this story about couple years ago when I needed some Islamic children stories and luckily I found this one. I want to post this story in my story list though I didn’t write it. I just want to share my inspiring story to all of you….


A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree. A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday. He climbed to the tree top, ate the apples, took a nap under the shadow. He loved the tree and 
the tree loved to play with him.
Time went by. The little boy had grown up and he no longer played around the tree everyday. One day, the boy came back to the tree and he looked sad.
Come and play with me,” the tree asked the boy.
“I am no longer a kid, I don’t play around trees anymore.” 
The boy replied, “I want toys. I need money to buy them.”
“Sorry, but I don’t have money. But you can pick all my apples and sell them. 
So, you will have money.” The boy was so excited. He grabbed all the apples 
on the tree and left happily.
The boy never came back after he picked the apples. The tree was sad.
One day, the boy returned and the tree was so excited. 
“Come and play with me” the tree said.
“I don’t have time to play. I have to work for family. 
We need a house for shelter. Can you help me?”
“Sorry, but I don’t have a house. But you can chop off my branches
 to build your house.”So the boy cut all the branches of the tree and left happily. 
The tree was glad to see him happy but the boy never came back since then. 
The tree was again lonely and sad.
One hot summer day, the boy returned and the tree was delighted. 
“Come and play with me!” the tree said. The boy said, “I am sad and getting old. 
I want to go sailing to relax myself. Can you give me a boat?”
“Use my truck to build your boat. You can sail far away and be happy.” 
So the boy cut the tree truck to make a boat. He went sailing 
and never showed up for a long time.
Finally, the boy returned after he left for so many years. “Sorry, my boy. 
But I don’t have anything for you anymore. No more apples for you.” 
the tree said.
“I don’t have teeth to bite” the boy replied.
“No more truck for you to climb on”
“I am too old for that now” the boy said.
“I really can’t give you anything. The only thing left is my dying roots.” 
the tree said with tears.
I don’t need much now, just a place to rest. I am tired after all these years.” 
the boy replied.”Good! Old tree roots is the best place to lean on and rest. 
Come, come sit down with me and rest.”
The boy sat down and the tree was glad and smiled with tears.
>>>>> The apple tree is like our parents who like to sacrifice everything for us. Sometimes as a child I even didn’t realize that. Look how our parents open their arms widely just to welcome us back from where ever we go. <<<<<<<
