Islam and Compassion

  • Rasulullah s.a.w. managed to win the hearts of those who interacted with him with his compassion. It is a reminder that good character should be the basis of life as well as the religion, and one should always strive to further beautify their character. A strong relationship with Allah s.w.t. and Rasulullah s.a.w. should strengthen one’s relationship with fellow humankind.
  • The kind of religiosity or piety that Rasulullah s.a.w. taught us is one that brings about hope to humanity, and does not in any way destroy humanity. It develops civilisations and not end them. It teaches us to love and respect our neighbours despite their religious preference, and not to plant seeds of hostility and enmity. It teaches us to radiate blessings to all.
