  23. Ok so I’ve been destined to spend this Ramadan in hand woth my finals, in a hostel of a mostly non Muslim country. Nevertheless, I located an area of poor Muslims and made grand plans of distributing gifts there. But from the past few days, I’m facing discouragement. Apparently girls can’t do this: randomly go give out stuff in streets. Discouraged to the point that I concluded I must be crazy to even think of this. But but but.. You mentioned balloons up there. So yyea ignore the society, plan back into action INSHALLAH. JZK for the inspiration!

    • Over the moon with joy Rasha!
      Many would use finals as an excuse of being too busy to be kind, but not you MashAllah!
      I kindly ask everyone who reads this to make a du’aa for you to ACE your exams!
      Proud and honored girls like you still exist in this world….

  34. Thank you so much Lilly for this beautiful article and true words. I always believed that kindness is a strength you should evolve, not refrain as to fear that others will think you are weak, on the very contrary. Kindness is the treasure you can always carry and share around wherever you are and that never fade away and that incha Allah will pay off after Life. Jazaki Allah khayran.

  35. Jazaakallahu khair for such a lovely article. Only a person with a clear and clean heart can pen down such sweet thoughts. May Allah swt bless you with best of knowledge and sweetness so you continue spreading it around.

    • You had me blushing there for a sec S.V.Zariwala!
      I don’t deserve such beautiful praise….
      May Allah accept our little efforts to do good and grant us the ability to spread it with His will and mercy.
      Thank you again for a lovely, heart warming comment

  36. Salam Lily,
    I can relate with what you said about shielding one’s heart so one doesn’t get hurt. I just want to say Jazakallahu Khair for the lovely article and In Shaa Allah I will use your tips.

    • I think at some point we all kind of relate to the shielding part coz I’m sure we have all been hurt…
      Being aware of it is a step forward though and not many are able to take
      Thank you for your genuine and honest commemt Fatima
      Ramadan Kareem to you and your lovely family

  37. JazakAllah khair for such a beautiful article. May Allah increase us all in these small acts of kindness for His sake and pleasure, ameen.

  38. MashAllah, I really enjoyed reading this article and made me laugh and smile on different parts. It encouraged me more to do good. Though it made me a bit sad that I don’t know how to participate or is able to participate in the different acts of kindness you listed but they were so amazing acts that I want to be part of. I don’t have the personality of people person so its hard to go out to do different things and also I just don’t have the opportunities or be in an environment that is so easy to do those wonderful acts of kindness. Though everyday I make duaa to Allah especially in this blessed month to grant me the strength and opportunity to do endless acts of kindness. My one act of kindness that I always do is smile to everyone. Thank you for sharing amazing acts of kindness we can do, may Allah reward you and grant me and everyone opportunities to do good

    • I loved reading your comment Samira
      And may I add that you’re right, what you do is not considered “small acts of kindness”
      Smiling to everyone is an act of charity, which is way more than everything I have listed here. It’s levels higher coz you make people feel good and acknowledged with your beautiful smile
      So don’t be sad honey. Be happy coz you’re doing more than a lot of others! You’re a sweet and peaceful representative of Islam with just your smile and genuine du’aa… MashAllah

  39. alhumdullilah I liked the article and particularly the various verses mentioned . may Allah bless you

  40. Aselamu aleykum werahmetullah…I am really pleased to read this article. It feels like a relief to get such an encouraging advice while the principle of life nowadays is becoming “the one who cares will always get hurt”. i request that you give us a similar piece of advice about how to stop expecting kindness from others even when you keep being kind to them.

    • Mediha I absolutely LOVE this idea!
      This is such a wonderful topic for the follow up article! Thank you so much! And inshAllah you get a big share of the hasanat from it since it was your idea ;)

  41. May Allah bless you, and everyone reading this. May He SWT put our minds at rest, protect and enlighten our families, protect us from our fears and give us the baraka of this glorious month.

    Thank you for the fab message. One thing I learnt from a non Muslim is to always be kind to beggars, even if you cannot meet their needs, do not frown and turn away but meet them with kind words and a smile.

    • Beautiful words from a beautiful heart
      Thank you Umm Abdullah
      And that’s exactly what Islam teaches us through a beloved Prophet 1400 years ago
      “And as for the beggar, then do not scold” (Holy Quran 93:10)
      Isn’t our Quran just amazingly beautiful….?

  42. Jazakallah khairan..for a truly amazing reminder …like they say kindness is contagious ..little acts of kinds can inspire others to be kind n compassionate too !

  43. I love you sister for such a nice essay.. I was in a need to read such powerful article.. JazakiAllahu Khayr.. ❤
    I was getting so tough day by day because of people who wronged me but some recent incidents and this essay helped me to come back to the “Zoha” i was previously.. I love you sister..

    • Zoha I’m so extremely touched by your comment…. I don’t know what to say…
      I pray you always stat connected to your beautiful heart and pure soul… And whenever someone wrongs you it only makes you even more soft and loving… For when we meet the bad with the good, the world becomes a better place…
      Thank you Zoha for putting a smile on my face… I’m truly grateful

  44. Assalamu alaikum
    jazakallah khair for this beautiful article sister ♥

  49. JazakAllaah khayr Sister!
    This article has made me feel encouraged to do a lot more act of kindness!
    May Allaah bless you as always (:

  50. Very thought provoking and motivational article. extracted practical points out of it. Jazak Allh.
    once I was travelling in metro bus when I saw a lady showing good gestures to every one. She even held a child of a standing mom in her lap to help her. At the end when the lady was about to dismount, she gave me her card; she was employee of some insurance company. I got truly inspired; if one can work with such zeal and devotion for ones job why not for the sake of Allah Almighty to get true internal satisfaction. I also prayed for that worker as she has the quality of sincerity, may Allah Almighty choose her for His path.

  51. This is fabulous. I had a bad start of day but now I am recharged with such a positive and amazing article..
    Jazakmullah khair
    May Allah Almigthy gibes barkat in your time and good deeds.

  52. Such a lovely article.. I am in dire need of this kind of article.
    Thank you.. Thank you very very much. :) May Allah give you more such gems of thought so that you could share it with us.(Ameen)

  53. Ma sha Allah, another ispiring article as always, may Allah grant us the strength to perform these deeds and to help each other on a daily basis..together we can make this world a better place in sha allah
