Mercy, The Stamp of Creation

1350860_hand-in-handI really enjoyed reading this blog post about Dr Umar Faruq Abdullah’s paper, titled Mercy, The Stamp of Creation. Dr Abdullah’s genius lies in his connection to the Prophetic reality. His paper was a reflection on my favourite hadith (Prophetic narration), and a reminder to be kind:
“People who show mercy to others will be shown mercy by the All-Merciful. Be merciful to those on earth, and He who is Heaven will be merciful to you.” [Tirmidhi]
Kindness doesn’t just include kindness to others, but also to ourselves, to plants, and to animals. In my experience, kindness is underrated. It’s also one of the best values to hold. Here’s to being a kind person!
