Islam is the religion of peace, kindness, compassion, and care for our fellow brothers and sisters. Looking after the needy and deserving, and sacrificing our own benefit for the sake of others is the teaching of our deen. Fasting is for Allah and helping a fellow brother break his fast will bless us with unlimited rewards, and the most important prize – the pleasure of Allah!
In these COVID hit times, each and every one of us has been affected somehow and many are going through some rather testing times. Accepting all the challenges, difficulties, with a strong belief in Allah’s mercy, and plus, knowing in your heart that, indeed, the creators of the heaven and the earth is surely supporting us and has our back. Ultimately, every storm shall pass.
Rising above our weaknesses, aiming to achieve humility, simplicity, piety, righteousness, and sense of non-attachment with the worldly affairs, can aid us in climbing the tallest of mountains. Pleasing our supreme King with our weak attempts can help us in making this earth a blessing for all. Let us strive to feel the pain of our near and dear ones, being of assistance to those in need, lending a helping hand even when we ourselves are falling short, only for gaining Allah’s pleasure.
