Silsila: 22. Darwish Muhammad (q)

Tonight we reviewed the story of the twenty-second figure on the Silsila: Darwish Muhammad (q).  

We learned how Muhammad (q) spent 7 years on a mountain waiting for his shaykh to come and meet him.  He had many animals with him as companions. 
I asked my son if he would have spent 7 years on a mountain with animals and he said no because the animals would eat him.  Then he asked me why Muhammad (q) wasn’t scared, and why the animals did not eat him.  I said that the animals were nice to Muhammad (q) and he was not scared because he was with Allah (s) and his shaykh during his seclusion there.  

   
 Please share you ideas for teaching children about the Awliya.
