The Imam would take a stroll thrice a day. While he is taking a walk, children seize his hand and take him here and there and the Imam does not show any sign of tiring until they themselves let his hands go free. The Imam is absolutely convinced in children’s freedom and would say: “If a child does not engage in pranks, he is not healthy.”
