Waliho munhu umo witanagwa Maria. Mayu ng’wenuyo walimani gete wa mihayo bhuli chalo, wali wimanile imihayo ya kwene.

Aliyo aha waja uMaria ukubhuyangu wa mihayo yiniyo, ikanemela, kushika nose umana hape gashi uwei alina bhuhubhi bho guja ulisanya bhanhu. Hambunu aha wamana giki aling’hubhi akabhuka guja kuli badili kujuhungama.

Kiswahili: Hadithi Ya Maria

Alikuwepo mtu mmoja aliyekuwa anaitwa Maria. Mama huyo alikuwa mjuaji sana wa kila jambo. Pia, kila jambo lililokuwa likitokea katika gunguli lolote, au kijiji chochote, alikuwa analifahamu vizuri.

Siku moja, mama uyo aliwagonganisha watu waliokuwa wanaishi maisha ya ndoa. Alipowachonganisha, maneno hayo yaliwachukua wengine kwa sababu   yake. Kwa maana kila mmoja alikuwa anasema “nimeambiwa na Maria jambo hili.”

Lakini Maria alipokwenda kwenye usuruhishi wa maneno hayo, ikamshinda, kufika mwisho akafahamu kwamba, kumbe yeye ndiye mkosaji wa kuwachonganisha watu.

Lakini alipofahamu hivyo, kwamba ni mkosaji alienda hadi kwa Padri ili akaungame. Alipofika pale, akazisema dhambi zake zote, mbele ya kiti cha kitubio. Lakini alipozisema, akaambiwa atafute kuku,  na kweli alitafuta akapata akampeleka kwa Padri.

Padri akamwambia Maria kwamba, atoe manyoya yote, “ukimaliza uende  unayamwaga maeneo yote ya gunguli.” Kweli alifanya hivyo. Alipomaliza akarudi tena hadi kwa padri. Akamjulisha kwamba amemaliza.

Baada ya hapo, Padri akamwambia tena, “Nenda ukayaokote yote.” Maria alienda kuyakusanya manyoya hayo, lakini aliyakusanya kiasi, mengine akashindwa, akarudi na chombo chake akasema, “Nimerudi Padri, lakini nimeyaokota kiasi, nimeshindwa kuyakusanya yote. Aliposema hivyo. Padri akasema, “ndivyo ilivyo Maria. Hata maneno sio rahisi kuyafahamu yote. Hata sasa tubu dhambi zako. Uache kwenda unasengenya,” na kweli, Maria akatubu dhambi zake.
