Moral Stories are those that are read in childhood, when the soul is pure and clear, and remembered for the rest of the lives. They are also passed on to generations. Through Moral Stories, the idea is to present the greatness of the humanity. Through Moral Stories one can improve their moral values and can learn about the human life.
In the Noble Qur'an, there exists a chapter (28) by the name of Al-Qasas (Narratives / Stories), which itself is proof that man is in need of narratives and stories. In many places in the same Noble Qur'an, stories of Prophets, kings and nations have been mentioned.
In addition, Allah (SWT) has presented issues pertaining to wars, peace, family, religion, society and other similar topics, in the form of narratives and stories. By reading these accounts, the people can comprehend and distinguish the paths of progress and regress, and ascent and descent in every field, especially morals. The entire chapter (12) Yusuf (Joseph) has been devoted to the story of Yusuf (Joseph), Yaqub (Jacob), Zulaikha and the brothers. In the beginning of the Chapter, Allah (SWT) says:
We narrate to you (O' Prophet) the most excellent of the narratives by (means of) what We have revealed to you this Qur'an. Noble Qur'an (12:3)
While, in the concluding verse of this very chapter, Allah (SWT) says:
In their histories there is certainly a lesson for men of understanding. It is not a narrative which could be forged, but a verification of what is before it and a distinct explanation of all things and a guide and a mercy to a people who believe. Noble Qur'an (12:111)
Indeed, one of the distinguished feats of the Noble Qur'an is this very story of Prophet Yusuf (as), which it refers to as the 'best of the narratives', and at the end of which, it says: In these stories there is a lesson for those, who desire to take a moral and adopt the path of the Perfect Men.
This Moral Stories collection caters for the general public, young and old alike, who are acquainted with basic reading and writing. The subject "Moral" is universal to every human being. Hence these Moral stories are not just for any particular sect or the followers of particular faith, it is for the entire humanity, irrespective of there belief, culture, race, color or age.
Before you read and understand these Moral Stories. Let me share with you a story about a medical doctor, who was invited as a guest speaker to address a group of alcoholics in one of the social programs.
Medical doctor wanted to make a demonstration that would be powerful enough to make people realize that alcohol was injurious to their health. He had two containers, one filled with pure distilled water and another with pure alcohol. He put an earthworm into the distilled water and it swam beautifully and came up to the top. He put another earthworm into the alcohol and it disintegrated in front of everyone's eyes. He wanted to prove that this is what alcohol does inside our body. Hence, he asked the group what the moral of the story?
One person from behind said, "If you drink alcohol you won't have worms in your stomach." Was that the message? Of course not, that was selective listening; we hear what we want to hear and not what is being said. So we understand what we want to understand and follow-up in our lives ... Insha Allah. So, please don't take any negative tip from these Moral Stories.
As far as the issue of associating a story to a particular topic is concerned, we do not claim that the stories allude to just one topic or that particular one which has been specified here; rather, there are stories which can be associated with several other topics too, in addition to the topic under which it has been mentioned here.
It is hoped that the readers, after going through these narratives and stories, reflect upon and take positive lessons from them so that they are able to create within themselves, a new impetus towards perfection of morals; and Insha...
...RETELLING A STORY
The book I’m going to present you is a short romantic novel . The title of the romantic novel is «Amita». It is written by a famous English writer Rosamunde Pilcher. Rosamunde Pilcher is a British author of romance novels and mainstream women's fiction since 1949. Early in her career she was also published under the pen name Jane Fraser.

The story represents a 1st person narration with the elements of description, interlaced with dialogues and the inner monologue of the leading character.
This is story about memories, memories of childhood, about broken dreams, and of course about human relationships.
The author draws our attention to the problem of intermarriage in the early 20th century and their rejection by society.
The idea can be stated as follows white people are considered to be superior then colour people and they do not care what is this person.
In my opinion, the general mood of the extract is lyrical, melodramatic and emotional.
The given text opens with the preface from which the reader finds out that the action takes place in our days, the protagonist of the book Laura read the obituary in the newspaper: «Tolliver. On the 8th July, in her 90th year, Daisy Tolliver, daughter of the late Sir Henry Tolliver, some time Governor of the Province of Barana, and Lady Tolliver.

Story of an Hour
In A Story of an Hour, Mr. Bentley Mallard was a controling figure that completely dominated his marriage with his wife Mrs. Louise Mallard. Through out the story Mrs. Mallard longed for some sort of freedom. She could never have that freedom because from a young early age she was empowered by her parents and when she became of age she married and her husband became in charge. You see freedom is something that we all crave, whether it be something insignificant or something earth shattering we all have the will and desire to do whatever we please no matter how silly it is we long to do things with out judgment or with out someone telling you what to do and how to do it.
From the time that I was born, to the time that I reached about 14 years old there was an invisible barrier that developed called “The Sacred Places” in life. This “Sacred Place” separated me from the outside world. As a kid I was always told to stay inside unless I went outside with a parent or some sort of guardian watching over me. The
reason behind this was not to keep us from all of the fun things that are outside of the four walls of my house, but it was to keep me safe and secure from harm. However if I did happen to go outside with out any sort of supervision I were punished with a spank or a stern voice informing me to never do that again or else I would be in bigger trouble. In A Story of an Hour, Louise...
...Rotor‟s Zita, to simply put, is a story about young girl who falls in love with her teacher while he teaches her how be a lady. Zita, the story‟s namesake, comes home to tell her father, Don Eliodoro, about the new teacher who comes to herschool. This event takes place after the speaker narrates the scene where Francisco B. Reteche, the teacher, is taken toAnayat by a fisherman named, Turong. Mr. Reteche is thought to be a strange person by the villagers who have becomeaware of his presence because of an aura of mystery that shrouds him – he chooses to live with Turong than in Don Eliodor‟s house, and he does not give much care about where he stays, as long as he is able to go to school to teach. Going back to the scene where Zita tells her father of her encounter with Mr. Reteche, she makes sure to highlight the moment when the teacher is baffled by Zita‟s name. Though it was not stated why, it is implied that Mr. Reteche istroubled by Zita‟s presence in the class. Don Eliodor then later comments that she should have private lessons with him onhow to be a lady. The first few weeks in Mr. Reteche‟s stay with him, Turong gossips to the others how the newcomer does not sleep, does not eat much, and just sits by the window to brood by himself. Every month, there was a letter in a blue envelope withgold design on its upper left hand corner that came for him. And once, Turong delivered one of the letters to him in school.During that time, the...

Dummy sheets and copy control
(Based on a lecture by Ross Collins, associate professor of communication, North Dakota State University)
Watch a video demonstration! Dummy sheets for editors.
We all know that the concept of placing photos, illustrations and stories on a page is important, and more than just a mechanical process. The way articles are displayed, their size, and their headlines tell readers the importance you are giving to each story. Bigger, more prominently placed equals more important. Smaller, less prominently placed equals less important. Who has not at times looked at a publication and said, "of course, they put that story on page 18Z at the bottom--they are biased against that topic." Or "of course that's a big story, and a big headline, right on the cover, because they are obsessed with that topic."
That's why the process of placing elements on a page involves decisions made by editors. Normally editors are responsible for certain sections of a large publication. In a newspaper, for instance, a "wire editor" may be responsible for choice and placement of national and international news, which comes over the wire (well, now computer) news services. A sports editor will be responsible for sport pages. An editorial page editor will be responsible for editorial pages, etc.

One of Aesop’s famous fables, “The Ant and the Dove” tells a story about two friends that help each other when one needs. An Ant went to the bank of a river to quench its thirst, and being carried away by the rush of the stream, was on the point of drowning. A Dove sitting on a tree overhanging the water plucked a leaf and let it fall into the stream close to her. The Ant climbed onto it and floated in safety to the bank. Shortly afterwards a bird catcher came and stood under the tree, and laid his lime-twigs for the Dove, which sat in the branches. The Ant, perceiving his design, stung him in the foot. In pain the bird catcher threw down the twigs, and the noise made the Dove take wing. The story teaches us a morale lesson “One good turn deserves another”.

...The Chieftest Mourner: A Reaction
The Chieftest Mourner is a story or rather a narration by a girl in her college days whose unvledied. Her uncle was given the title "the last of a distinct school of Philippine poets" and wasdescribed as "the sweetest lyre that ever throbbed with Malayan chords". The title of this story isdifferent from the other ones I've read before because one of the words which makes it up isunfamiliar to me and to my dictionary, which makes it a bit hard to make a connection between itand the story itself. But from the word 'mourner' and 'chief' I think it means who suffered most. I believe that the narrator or the girl is the one who fits the description, which makes the title fitfor the story and its theme, which is mainly about the death of a great poet.For me, the death of her uncle is indeed a great tragedy. But a part of me is saying he deserves it because he left his wife, he left the girl's Aunt Sophia alone and heartbroken. Although AuntSophia knew that her husband did not really intend tomarry her, she was still heartbroken because of the fact that the man she loved did not learn howto love her completely, not just because of her beauty.The great poet left his wife for another woman. Why did he have to go away and find another woman to be with when he already has somebody who loves him? Couldn't the dramatic poetaccept what was done to him because he got drunk? It was his fault he got...
