Ethics and Compassion in Relationships

  • The prosperity of a community is closely tied to the values and morals of its individuals. One of these values include having thoughts of others. Islam teaches its followers to think well of others in order to maintain good relations and preserve the unity amongst them. 
  • A civilization worthy of Allah's acceptance refers to a community that is able to harmoniously co-exist and complement all of Allah's creations on this earth. This can can be achieved by putting into practice the ethics portrayed by Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. 
  • The value of compassion teaches us the true meaning and purpose of life on earth. We are created not to simply fulfil our personal obligations, but to also be a source of hope and mercy to humanity.
