O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)
(Quran 49: 13)
You Must Read Quran Ayahs
With His Infinite Love, Allah (SWT) created us to live eternally and happily in Paradise and this short life is only for the divine test. To explain this, The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Allah (SWT) says: ‘I have prepared for My righteous slaves that which no eye has seen, no ear has heard and it has never crossed the mind of man. All of that is reserved, besides which all that you have known is as nothing.’ Then he recited: “No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do” (Quran; 32:17) ( Al Bukhari).
The love and mercy Allah (SWT) demonstrates for human beings can be easily understood by reading the Quran. Indeed, all chapters except one begin with: “In the name of Allah, Al-Rahman (The Most Gracious), Al-Raheem (The Most Merciful)”. Moreover, His Beautiful Names, which are: The Acceptor of Repentance; The Compassionate; The Loving One; The Forbearing One; The Most Gracious; The Most Merciful; The Source of Goodness; The Most Generous and The Bestower, indicate that He (SWT) is characterised by mercy, goodness and generosity.
Now, as human beings are naturally inclined to love, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said “You will not enter Paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I inform you of something which, if you do, you will love one another? give greetings (peace) amongst yourselves.” (Sahih Muslim)
The ultimate consideration is love for Allah (SWT) and those who don’t experience this perhaps don’t know Him. As a consequence, they would not be able to taste the sweetness of faith. Moreover, it is the loving of others and helping them (muʿāmalāt) for the sake of Allah (SWT) which is more important than worship (Ibadah), which is after all not obligatory.
The Eternal Path of Charity
by Zin Eddine Dadach
During any charity-based activity, you will feel some kind of tranquility in your heart and sometimes, you will even experience tears of inner joy. This means that you are putting the path of your life in the pleasant Eternal Path of Charity. It is should be noted that the purpose of life for human beings and all creatures is to worship Allah (SWT) alone and helping others are the highest acts of worship.
الطّريق الأبديّ للصّدقات
by Zin Eddine Dadach
قد ينطوي هذا النشاط على تقديم المساعدة للأشخاص، أو رعاية الحيوانات أو النباتات، وهو الأمر الذي يتعلق بطريقة أو أخرى بحالة الروح الّتي تم تقديمها في ثنايا هذا الكتاب وعنوانه “الطّريق الأبديّ للصّدقات”. والواقع أنه خلال إجراء أي نشاط قائم على الصدقات، ستنعم بشيء من السكينة في قلبك، وأحيانًا قد تغمر دموع الفرح روحك ابتهاجًا؛ ما يعني أنك سلكتَ سبيل السعادة عندما وضعتَ مسار حياتك على الطّريق الأبديّ للصّدقات. ومن الجدير بالذكر في هذا المقام أن الغرض من خلق الإنسان وسائر المخلوقات هو عبادة الله وحده، ومن ثَمَّ فإن مساعدة الآخرين ترتقي إلى أسمى العبادات.
