Laiq Ahmed Atif, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta distributed packets of fruit to the families living at Ħal Far Refugee Camp on August 29, 2011.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat is always committed to help those who are in need irrespective of their faith, creed, nationality or politics, on the basis of ‘humanity first’ and ‘love for all hatred for none’. It organises charity events for the vulnerable people of this planet, all around the year, and especially prior to the celebration of Eid festival in the end of Ramadan, a month of sacrifices, self purification and fasting. Fasting during Ramadan not only fosters discipline, strength and increased focus on worship; it also inspires sympathy for the hungry and poor and encourages Muslims to donate generously to those who need it the most.
The best example of kindness is that of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). His kindness was limitless and without any discrimination. Once on shaking hands with a labourer, he realized that his hands were rough and calloused form the hard work. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) took the hands in his own and massaged them gently repeating several times: These hands are very dear to Allah. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) showed appreciation to his fellow beings. He said: One who is not grateful to mankind is not grateful to Allah. (Tirmidhi)
The Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) had great compassion for mankind. Love of humanity and forgiveness were two of his major characteristics. He wrote:
“I look upon no one as an enemy. I have the same love for all mankind as a mother has for her children. I am only an enemy of false beliefs and untruths. Sympathy for all is a moral obligation and a duty. (Arbaeen)
That religion is no religion that does not inculcate sympathy, nor does that man deserve to be called a man who does not have sympathy in him. (Message of peace)
