Showing Kindness to our Families

  • Acts of kindness and gentleness must begin from home, when we interact with our very own family members. This is because home is where everyone deserves to feel safe and at peace. It is also the place where we nurture feelings of love and affection between family members.

     

     

  • All forms of domestic violence, be it physical, emotional or psychological are not part of the characteristics of a true Muslim.

     

     

  • This is where we can all play our part to overcome family violence. If we hear or know of anyone facing domestic violence, we should report such cases to the authorities, for example the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF).
