I have been narrating Stories from the Quran to my daughter since she was 3 years old. She is 4.5 now MashaAllah.
I used to narrate story of the Ashab e Kahf to her on fridays. I also love this Surah and tremendously enjoy its recitation by Mishari Rashid. I love to recite it as well. Recently I started including actual verses of the Quran into the story of Ashaab e Kahf.
She enjoyed the story tremendously MashaAllah and quickly memorized the dua of Ashab e Kahf. I decided to write down the story I narrate to her so other parents can benefit from it as well InshaAllah. May Allah accept from me.
Instead of the usual long long time ago beginning, i decided to narrate it as a Seerah event.How Prophet Muhammad sallalahu alayhe wasallam was asked about Ashab e Kahf by the Makkans. This will InshaAllah result in developing a strong attachment and love for Muhammad sallahualayhe wasallam.
This story is meant to be narrated by the parent. It would be best for the parent to read this story, memorize the verses and narrate them in their own words, full of emotions. If the child is young, some details can be skipped. I hope you will find the story beneficial.
