A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree. A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday. He climbed to the treetop, ate the
apples, took a nap under the shadow...he loved the tree and the tree
loved to play with him. Time went by...the little boy had grown up
and he no longer played around the tree every day.

One day, the boy came back to the tree and he looked sad. 'Come and
play with me' the tree asked the boy. 'I am no longer a kid, I do not
play around trees any more' the boy replied.'I want toys. I need
money to buy them.' 'Sorry, but I do not have money... but you can
pick all my apples and sell them. So, you will have money.' The boy
was so excited. He grabbed all the apples on the tree and left
happily. The boy never came back after he picked the apples.The tree
was sad.

One day, the boy who now turned into a man returned and the tree was
excited 'Come and play with me' the tree said. 'I do not have time to
play. I have to work for my family. We need a house for shelter. Can
you help me?'' Sorry, but I do not have any house. But you can chop
off my branches to build your house.' So the man cut all the branches
of the tree and left happily.The tree was glad to see him happy but
the man never came back since then. The tree was again lonely and sad.

One hot summer day, the man returned and the tree was delighted.'Come
and play with me!' the tree said.'I am getting old. I want to go
sailing to relax myself. Can you give me a boat?' said the man.'Use
my trunk to build your boat. You can sail far away and be happy.' So
the man cut the tree trunk to make a boat. He went sailing and never
showed up for a long time.

Finally, the man returned after many years.'Sorry, my boy. But I do
not have anything for you anymore. No more apples for you ...' the
tree said.'No problem, I do not have any teeth to bite' the man
replied. 'No more trunk for you to climb on' 'I am too old for that
now' the man said.'I really cannot give you anything... the only
thing left is my dying roots' the tree said with tears. 'I do not
need much now, just a place to rest.I am tired after all these years'
the man replied. 'Good! Old tree roots are the best place to lean on
and rest, Come, come sit down with me and rest.' The man sat down and
the tree was glad and smiled with tears...

This is a story of everyone.   The tree is like our parents.

When we are young, we love to play with our Mom and Dad...When we
grow up, we leave them...only come to them when we need something or
when we are in trouble.

No matter what, parents will always be there and give everything they
could just to make you happy.

You may think the boy is cruel to the tree,but that is how most people
treat their parents.  They take them for granted and hardly appreciate all
they do for them,until it's too late.

May Allah forgive us of our shortcommings and may He Guide us, Ameen.

Please enlighten all your friends and your families by telling them
this story, Love your Parents!

[And your Rab has decreed that you worship none but Him.  And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour.]  17:23  NOBLE QURAN

[ And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy,and say: 'My Rab! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small.' ]  17:24  NOBLE QURAN

Very moving story and it's very true of human life and nature.  So many people just use their parents endless love and are never able to pay it back to them.  They only realize how lucky they were when their parents were alive and there for them after the parents pass away. 

I seek refuge in Allah from the mistakes of such people.
