Story no. 14: The children’s beds

Mustafa and Murtaza shared one bed between them at night. One night when Mustafa went to their room thinking to sleep early he saw two beds instead of one.
He asked his mother “Do we have guests tonight?”
Mother replied “No, but you must have your beds separate from now on”.
When Murtaza was made aware of this story, he asked “Mother, may I ask you why?”
Mother replied “Because it is one of the rules of Islam that the beds of children of six years and onwards should be separated”.
