2. Answer question as instructed.


1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the question that follows

Our mother used to tell us different stories during evening time, especially after the dinner time. She was a good narrator, she used to narrate many stories.

 I remember one thing mother taught us he time she would be narrating the stories she put emphasis on giving to the poor.

She used to say “Giving to the poor can make up for sin, just as water can put out the blazing fire.” Anyone who is responding to others with act of kindness is thinking of the future because he will find help if he is over falls on hard times. She would say my son, don’t prevent the poor from making a living or keeping them waiting in their needs.

Never give a hungry person a reason to feel isolated. Don’t add trouble if he is need don’t put off giving to him. Don’t refuse to help the beggar who is in distress. Don’t turn your back on a poor person or give him any reason to curse you.

Make yourself popular in the community. Bow your head to the men of authority. Listen to what the poor have to say and answer them politely. Protect the poor people from those who want to hurt them and be firm in your judgments. Be like a Father to orphans who provide for them with help since their parents can no longer provide for them. Then you will feel proud of helping who are in need of help.

For the people you will never forget what you do for them even when you are not around. Everyone will take you as a friend because you are always there they need you.
