Really ??   I've never read the Western versions, just heard of the title, and I never knew there were more than one Western version.  Lewd and macabre theme for kids' stories !?  That really sounds awful.


Exactly brother.  It's terrible.  The first version by Italian fairy tale author, Basile, of the 1500s is the bawdiest.  One can call it an x-rated tale.  Then a French author, Perrault, of 1600s tried to make it a bit more suitable as children's story.  Yet not suitable enough at all.  Disney and Grimm Brothers versions are not too different from Perrault's.  I won't give the links here for I don't want kids to read it.  But you can check out this info on your own.

....

Well, I'll tell you what.   In fairy tale language or description, to mention someone as 'unconscious' doesn't literally mean that.  At least not in our Islamic versions.  It's a literary etiquette to highlight the seriousness of an event or incident.   The common description about someone dropping 'unconscious' implies to be taken very ill, listless, sluggish, feeling of constant drowsiness and perhaps sleeping a lot more than normal .. only sitting up in bed with help from others for a bit of food and staggering unsteadily with help once a day or so to the washroom.  This is what it actually implies. 

Thank you Sister.  That makes sense. 





..... because the original Western tale with at least two versions are lewd and grisly, certainly not meant for children to read nor any one for that matter.
The Islamic version of this children's tale will leave a clean impression on young minds, erasing the dirty Western version.

Read it and I too found this piece cozily entertaining for very young kiddos.  Good job of the way you put it up Sister Ruhi.

Maybe Insh'Allah, you can also put up the Islamic version of 'Sleeping beauty.'  That will benefit many kids who read it because the original Western tale with at least two versions are lewd and grisly, certainly not meant for children to read nor any one for that matter.

They all loved this page and the read, except one question my 8-year-old niece asked me I couldn't answer and told her I'll let her know later.   She asked if Snow White was in "coma" for so many days, how did she eat and drink water to remain alive and how did she go to the washroom ?   

😅 That one stumped me ..

Yes, very nice one.  Will send this to the youngest of my nieces and nephews.  Refreshing to read the dwarf sisters weren't the usual silent apologists.  They were aware of the advantage of lashing out at bad folks and tried to give the stepmom a hard time.  I'm glad for that portrayal.  Sister Zeynab also perceived a good point .. kindness without expecting worldly or material gain.  It's a very significant Quranic principle.  Unfortunately it's become a very rare commodity nowadays, and lots of Muslims also need to learn that.

Very entertaining.  What I liked best was that unlike the Western version, instead of becoming a housekeeper at the cottage where the dwarfs welcomed her only after she offered to clean and cook for them, in the Islamic version the dwarf sisters-in-Faith allow the girl to stay in their cottage as part of a family, protecting her, teaching her skills and providing her with food, and demanding nothing in return. The Western version portrays the typical give-and-take approach.  Although many Muslims nowadays also have the same approach, helping the helpless only if they can gain something from it.  The Noble Quran however emphasizes greatly on helping the needy only with the thought of Allah, and without the thought of worldly gain or loss.
