Grandmother sat down chatting with the girls around her .Maybe
they could enjoy with one of her
In that moment,
the sweet and beautiful Dana asked her Grandmother: Grandma, what is the story
of Hijab and what is so impressive about it?
And why Allah
ordered us to wear it and keep it as a dept?
Oh my child, if the girl knows what is with Hijab , she won`t take it off even on her dead

tell you a beautiful story with clear lessons.
gather around her with (passion/anxious) to hear the story.
Once upon a
time, there was a man named Abu Dana.
Asking God to bless him with Dana .praying for the near relief. And grant him
later, the wife was confused about the reason of Abu Dana`s request for a Dana
(pearl) from Allah .so she asked him: what`s your story with the Dana, Abu
And why you
keep asking for? As you know you are wealthy, and Allah Almighty gave us and
blessed us with enough sustenance, and gave us children and Money.
So what`s the
need for greed?
answered with love and sobriety: my love for the prophet (peace be upon him)
and Fatima (peace be upon her), Made me to love Dana .And my dear wife, Dana is
That I a s k
Allah to bless us with her and be a pure like a pearl by God willing.
Grandmother came and sat near the wife and they said): O God, bless us with
children, after the prayer was high while they`re entreating Al-zahraa and the precious prophet.
It was only
few months until the midwife started looking for Abu Dana every where but alas,
where is Abu Dana? Where… (The question goes to the girls) … where my
For sure, Abu
Dana is diving in the sea looking for the pearl. Few moments later, the pearl`s
promises were shinning and sparkling under the sea

Abu Dana came to his house Quickly… and his
heart was longing to his children.
to surprise them with the good news.
He took a
moment to show off) )
Then the midwife ran to him: Good news Abu
Dana, good news.
going on?"he answered "what`s the matter"?
The midwife congratulations,
Allah blessed you with a girl .and she`s so beautiful and Gorgeous… what do you
want to name her?
looks up and thank Allah for his bless: Thank God for blessing me with Dana. Thank
you (He prostrated to praise Allah)
Then he said:"sure
I will name her Dana, and may god protect her and save her from envy, and be
one of the good girls."
And Dana Grew
up … seeing her father everyday taking care of her and the pearl from the
wooden box which is covered with a silk cloth
passed by , and she sees her father talking extremely good care of his pearl,
and she keeps wondering of the cause of this concern
later, she approaches her father telling him what`s on her mind about this
One of the
Girls asks anxiously: what did her say grandma? What did she say?
Dana asked her father politely, what`s the wonderful thing about this pearl,
not a day pass without seeing you taking care of it.
"My girl ..."her father answers while cleaning
the pearl … "this is the Dana, it`s not for everyone, it`s only mine and
it`s like the daughter.
Then her father says: Allah Blesses the human
with a daughter, and keeps love in their hearts, and makes love as the title of
and for the
sake of love she`s being taught religion.
and one of
the most important matters of religion is to be decent. because
the Quran mentioned in surat Al- Ahzab(O prophet! Say to your wives and your
daughters and the women of the believers that they let down upon them their
over –garments; this will be more proper, that they may be known, and thus they
will not be given trouble; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful)
that a girl should maintain veil .because she `s like a pearl … and observe
with me the purity of the prophet`s biography and how he treated Al-Batool
Look how he
used to cover her with Hijab and hide her from Envious people .why? Because she
was like a pearl, can`t be shared by everyone The Daughter is a jewel, and her
beauty is in her veil.
What cover is
better than Hijab for a girl!
what people would say, dad?"Dana with a surprised respond
Answered: whoever listens to people, he`ll live worried. And who obeys Allah,
Hatred and envy keeps away from him, the ill minds, sick hearts and cheap
created humans, and he`s not judging them by what they have in their heart. he
judging them by what they do in their life.
my child, you
are a jewel, and as the saying goes :people are like metals . And the most
valuable metals are the expensive ones .and those who buy it
keep it away from jealous people.
I need to ask you something: do you want to be
like Fatima al Zahraa, a rare metal, precious pearl, a jewel or…
In one breath, Dana replied, with a
tear on her eye: Dad, I’m Dana and I’m not a coward.
Please, allow me to wear the Hijab as
a crown on my head like al-Zahraa did.
Her father commented: but the Hijab
is not just a piece of cloth on the head or an accessory with your dress.
My child, the jewel is valuable, and
the add-ons will damage it
Who dares to hurt my Dana?
Remember with me, things may have a
value, but they become cheaper if there is a hidden fault
Who buys an imperfect pearl?
Dana answered: I don’t think that a
girl is called a pearl if this pearl is made of plastic and only colorful. It
would be a cheap pearl; it only looks like a fake pearl.
If the girl was truly like a pearl,
we should take care of her with all love. And cover her beauty and innocence
And surely we learned that from
Zainab and Fatima al-Zahraa, and of course Khadeeja before them, peace be upon
The girls around the grandmother: oh
grandma what a great story.
And people don’t know about the
importance of Hijab, how weird and shame.
You know grandma, you made us all
want to be like the precious pearl Fatima al-Zahra, the daughter of Prophet
Mohammed Peace be upon him.
We are pearls, and everyone wants to
be such a thing too.
The grandmother hugged the girls and
said: this is the end of my story with the Hijab and its impressiveness
Hopefully we’ll gather again for
another story of your grandma
