the Hares and the Frogs

Posted on: November 16, 2012



The Hares are very shy and timid animals.  Even a moving shadow scares them. Being submissive they can’t defend them so believe that they are the most harassed of all animals.

They thought everyone was their enemy.

One rainy day they lost all hope for life. They couldn’t find any shelter to save them from the heavy rainfall. The hunger also bothered them.  The future looked completely dark to them.  

There was nothing left for them but, to kill themselves. So, wasting no more time, they hurriedly darted to a nearby lake. They decided to dive into the water to be drowned. They thought that dying will solve their problems of life.

   But as they got near the brink of the lake, they saw a large number of frogs on the shore. The Hares were surprised to see the frogs in panic.

 Spreading fright and croaking, the frogs jumped into the water.

   “Hold on!” cried the hare that was in the lead. “Let us not be in hurry. Surely our case is not so hopeless yet, for here are other poor animals that are even more spiritless than us.”


There is always someone worse off than you are.

  Be thankful to Allah for what you have!

I love the way you make children think! It’s a good reminder for adults too!


Thank you for encouraging 🙂


I narrated this story to my g son who is 3 years 4 month old and when I explained the moral, he surprised me by saying, Daddoo I will not play with Amaar Yasir( a 6 year boy), he beats me and I will now play with Moamil and Adeen (his age group), as many times he had beaten them.


Sometimes we forget to be thankful for what we do have because we are blinded by the tribulations and hard times in life. But, this story is a good reminder our “hard times” not only will pass but others suffer more. We should be thankful always.
