A Kind Heart in the Park


Once upon a sunny day, there was a little boy named Adam. Adam loved to visit the park, where he would play on the swings, slide down the slide, and run around with his friends. But one day, as Adam was playing, he noticed a little girl sitting alone on a bench, looking sad.


Curious and caring, Adam went up to the girl and introduced himself. “Hi, my name is Adam. Are you okay?” he asked with a gentle smile.


The girl, whose name was Amina, looked up and replied softly, “I’m feeling a bit lonely today. My family just moved here, and I miss my old friends.”


Adam felt a tug at his heart and remembered what he had learned from the book “I am Adam, and I love Islam.” He knew that being kind and spreading love was important, just like he did in the book. So, he decided to be a friend to Amina.


With a warm smile, Adam said, “I know it’s hard to be in a new place, but you don’t have to feel alone. I’ll be your friend, and we can play together!”


Amina’s face brightened, and they spent the rest of the day playing and laughing together. As they became friends, Adam learned more about Amina’s culture and her faith, just like how he embraced diversity and understood different beliefs in the book.


In the following days, Adam invited Amina to join his group of friends, and soon, she felt like she belonged. They celebrated together. Adam’s family even invited Amina’s family over for a delightful feast, filled with love and unity.


As Adam continued to be kind and understanding, just like the lessons he learned from the book, he noticed something magical happening. The park started to feel like a colorful garden of friendships, where children from different backgrounds played happily together, just like his teacher had explained in the book.


And so, with every act of kindness, Adam made the park a place where love and understanding blossomed. The lessons from “I am Adam, and I love Islam” became a part of his daily life, making the world around him a little brighter and more beautiful with each passing day.


From that day forward, Adam knew that embracing diversity and spreading love was not just a lesson from a book; it was something he could live and share every day. And so, he continued to be a kind-hearted friend to everyone, making a positive impact on the world around him.

Questions Children Ask?

Q3: Why can’t I eat the same treats as my friends sometimes?
