Do you remember the last time you did something for someone to help somebody? What I think rarely we do help others but if you are the one who often helps others then you are doing great work and you can be called a kind person. 🙂
Let me tell you that helping others, listening to others, caring people around you, giving favor to someone, providing comfort to others are all acts of kindness.
We are so much busy in our life that we rarely got time to help others and even if we got the opportunity to help someone we ignore it by saying, “I am already busy.” “I am not here to help others.” I have my work to do.”
Now you might be thinking who cares if I did something good. And yes, nowadays no one cares if you are doing something to help someone. And who will pay off your kindness? Like doing kindness to someone is just wasting your time. This is a very difficult era, everyone only cares for their own needs. Nobody thinks whether someone needs any help or not.
The above-written sentences are typical thoughts and beliefs of every common person just to make excuses and ignorance. Now, here I am not saying that everyone makes excuses just for avoiding helping others but some might be really busy that is why they ignore.
Do you guys know what is the problem here? The problem is that we expect a lot. If I help someone or if I do something for a person in return I make expectations that next time the same person is going to do something for me and he/she must have to do because I help him/her.
Now, this thing is wrong and it is making problems. Having believed that I am helping someone and next time the same person has to help me is absolutely not okay. Why you are expecting? You don’t need to expect. You did something that is because you are good and you will be rewarded for it. Do kindness it’s free and most importantly do it without having expectations from the person.
So there is no need to expect. And believe me, your good deeds are never unrewarded you will be rewarded by any other means and might be by any other gift that you don’t even ever expect. All we have to is having faith in the Almighty Allah and start doing good deeds without having expectations that I have to take help in return if I am helping someone.
Our prophet PBUH gave the lesson of love, kindness, and compassion to his people and he was seen as the most loving, compassionate, and kind of all of them. The Quran itself mentioned his kind and gentle behavior in these words: “O Messenger of Allah! It is a great Mercy of God that you are gentle and kind towards them; for, had you been harsh and hard-hearted, they would all have broken away from you” (Quran 3:159).
Now you might have a question that how can I help someone? Here is the answer for you.
- Taking care of others. You can also take care if someone is sick and I am sure in return you will get lots of prayers.
- Removing obstacles from others’ ways. Now here from the previous sentence I mean to say if you are equipped to remove difficulties of others if you are able to help others, or if you are certain that you can help someone in any matter then do.
- Doing favor to someone. For instance, once I did a favor to my roommates by cleaning up the mess, organizing things on the table, and setting bedsheets. And you know what? They really appreciate me for this act of kindness and deep inside it gives me confidence and happiness. 🙂 P.S. I am not saying to do it every day I know it is not your job but you can if they are busy or not present in the room. 😉
- Listening to others. Sometimes, we should listen to others’ feelings. We should also pay attention to their pains and difficulties and should strengthen them so that they can feel relaxed and satisfied. We should behave positively and kindly. Who knows your kind and polite behavior impress others and they also become kind and good others.
It is not really a difficult task to be kind to someone. Your few words of love can make someone’s day better. Be kind and sprinkle the kindness everywhere. Let us make this world a beautiful and peaceful place. Stop looking at your phones all the time. There is a world around, there are people around you and they need your attention and help.
Don’t think that what will be the impact of just one good deed by only one person. You just do your job and in this way, there will be many people who would be helping and kind. I wish you a very happy, peaceful, and loving life.
Stay healthy, happy, and hopeful.
Sprinkle Kindness & Spread Love.
