Title: Unity is the strength


There was an old farmer. He had four sons. They were all grown up. But they

had no good relation with one another. They were disobedient and always

quarreled among themselves. The old man was very much dissatisfied with

them and tried to make them united. But they didn’t pay any heed to him. A

he was getting old and weak day by day, he became very anxious about their

future. At last, he made a plan to teach his sons how to live in unity. To

materialize his plan, one day he called his sons together and said. ”I have

called you to give my last advice. I will not live long. But I feel very unhappy to

see you quarrel among yourselves.” He told his eldest son to bring some sticks.

The son brought some sticks  The old man asked him to bind the sticks

together. He bound them into a bundle. Then the old man ordered him to break

the bundle. He tried but couldn’t break it. The old man told all of his sons to

break the bundle and they tried one by one. They tried their best. But none of

them was successful. Then the old man asked the sons to unite the bundle.

When they did it. he asked them to break the sticks separately. They broke the

sticks one by one very easily. The old man raised his head and said. ”My sons

Take a lesson from it. You could not break the bundle of sticks when they were

bound together. But it was not hard for you to break them separately. If you

remain united like the sticks and do not quarrel. nobody can harm you. On the

other hand, if you quarrel among yourselves,  you will lose strength and your

enemies will easily do you harm. To live in peace. The sons got the point and

promised to follow their father’s advice. At this, the father became very happy

and prayed to Allah for their success.
