Story-telling

Storytelling is a very effective method of tarbiyah. The Qur' an includes many stories that are used as means and ways of tarbiyah for Muslims. Amongst these stories is that of the Prophets. In them, Allah describes different incidents and events that prophets have experienced throughout their lives. Examples of such stories include the stories of Prophet Ibrahim, Prophet Musa, and Prophet Isa.
