Today I am going to share my view about Kindness.

 

In today’s world we find very few people having kindness, but when we see the past we find that all Nabis, Sahabas, Tabi’een, Tabi Tabi’een and Awliya e Kiraam were very kind and generous. They spent their whole life doing Ibadat, preaching Islam and doing khidmat of Allah’s creation.

 

“Kindness is one part of Khidmat.”

 

There are four easy steps you can practise to develop Kindness.

 

1. When you talk to a person, talk to them kindly even if they are your friend or enemy.
2. When you try to explain to your brother, sister, or friend when they are doing something wrong, try to explain to them kindly, not just yell at them.
3. We should be kind to poor people by giving them even 100 fils, not just pretend like we didn’t see them and walk away. In India people think that the beggars are just pretending to be poor. But we should not bother that they are really poor or pretending, instead we should give something to them with correct niyyah.
4. We should be kind to animals, birds and plants .We should not hit them with stones, slippers and sticks. We should just scare them away. They are actually scared of us and want to protect themselves and their babies. We should not pluck flowers or leaves even though they look pretty, nice or smell good. As there is a ‘heart’ in each one of them. Allah has given all the plants, animals and birds a heart and it hurts them deeply.

 

So these were the few easy steps that we can try to develop so that we can be kind and generous as our scholars.

 

Jazak Allah Khayr!
