Ramadan Session: Compassion

Compassion in a simple definition is treating people the way you want to be teated. Compassion can be defined a the act of sympathetic pity and concern for the suffering of others or misfortune of others.

A compassionate person is a good listener who renders shoulder to lean or cry on. Such person show act of kindness without thinking of anything, and can be so good and kind to a total stranger.

How compassionate are you, is it a show off? are you expecting a thank you or glorification in return? are you expecting a reward afterwards.

Quran 1:1-3 speaks it all

In the Name of Allah—the Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.

All praise is for Allah—Lord of all worlds,

the Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

God is the most Compassionate, the most Merciful. He gives to whom He will and guides whom He wants without looking back and seeks nothing except praise and thanks.

Compassion is mentioned in all of the chapters of the Quran, for every beginning, we mentioned compassion. This alone is a lesson to be compassionate to not only ourselves but to the people around us.

How many verses are we going to quote from the Quran without Saying “Bismilahi Rahaman Raheem” except the one that was one that was angrily delivered.

Quran 55: says it all. Quran 55: 1-4

The Most Beneficent (Allah)!
Has taught (you mankind) the Qur'an (by His Mercy).
 He created man.
He taught him eloquent speech.

Quran 55:13
Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?
