Being of service to others leads to happiness.

Verily, God will say to His servant as He is taking account of him on the Day of Judgment,

God: ‘O’ son of Adam, I was hungry and you did not feed me.’

Son of Adam: How can I feed you and you are the Lord of the worlds!

God: Did you not know that my servant so and so who is the son of so and so felt hunger, and you did not feed him. Alas! Had you fed him you would have found that (i.e. reward) with Me.

O’ son of Adam, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink.

Son of Adam: He will say, ‘How can I give you drink, and you are the Lord of the worlds

God: Did you not know that my servant so and so, the son of so and so felt thirsty and you did not give him drink. Alas! If you had given him, you would have found that (i.e. reward) with Me.

O’ son of Adam, I became sick and you did not visit Me.

Son of Adam: How can I visit you and you are the Lord of the worlds!

God: Did you not know that my servant so and so, the son of so and so became sick and you did not visit him. Alas! Had you visited him, you would have found me with him.’

“The likeness of a good friend and an evil friend, is the likeness of a perfume seller and a blacksmith.

As for the perfume seller, he may either bestow something on you, or you may purchase something from him, or you may benefit from his sweet smell.

And as for the blacksmith, he may either burn your clothes, or you may be exposed to his awful smell.”

(Bukhari and Muslim)

“There is a sadaqa (voluntary charity) to be given for every joint of the human body every day the sun rises. To judge justly between two persons is regarded as sadaqa, and to help a man concerning his riding animal by helping him to ride it or by lifting his luggage on to it, is also regarded as sadaqa, and a good word is also sadaqa, and every step taken on one’s way to offer the compulsory prayer is also sadaqa and to remove a harmful thing from the way is also sadaqa.”

(Bukhari)

As with the Days of late series, a new series known as the Random acts of kindness aims to collect simple, thought-ful seemingly small but wonder-ful acts to inspire us all to spread peace. This will be updated as and when new acts of kindness are brought to attention, insha’allah (The God willing).

Share your random acts of kindness with Don’t be Sad and have them published on the Random acts of kindness page (click on image below).

“Allah does not afflict a slave with grief nor sadness, except that if the slave says:

O Allah indeed I am Your servant, and the son of Your servant, and the son of Your female servant, my forelock is in Your Hand, Your command over me is forever executed and Your decree over me is just. I ask of You with all Your names, which belong to You, which You have named Yourself with, or which You have taught someone from Your creation or revealed it in Your Book or that which You have taken unto Your self with the knowledge of the unseen with You, that You make the Qur’an the life of my heart and light of my breast and keep away from me my sadness, and that my grief goes away-

then Allah takes away his grief and sadness and replaces it with happiness.”

The narrator said: It was said: O Messenger of Allah should we not learn it?

He answered: Of course, it is necessary for the one who hears it, that he learns it.

(Silsilah Saheehah, Al-Albaani)
