37. Food for the Soul - Selflessness


Recommended Posts

“Food for the Soul”


Allah, The Most Exalted, says:

"Say, 'Indeed, my Lord extends provision for whom He wills of His servants and restricts (it) for him. But whatever thing you spend (give) – He will compensate it; and He is the best of Providers."

(Qur’an Saba', 34:39)


The Noble Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (peace be upon him) is reported to have said:


"No one of you is a believer until he loves for his brother that which he loves for himself."  

(Hadith –Bukhari & Muslim)


Note: Indeed the Last and Final Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was a Mercy to All of Humanity and he practically demonstrated selflessness. Sacrifice usually is accompanied by difficulty and our sincerity is put to test. It’s easy to sacrifice and give to those who give back. The real test is to give to those who can give you nothing in return. When you sacrifice something precious, you're not really losing it, you're just passing it on to someone else and hoping for a reward from your Creator.
