You who believe, do not cancel out your charitable deeds with reminders and hurtful words, like someone who spends his wealth only to be seen by people, not believing in God and the Last Day. Such a person is like a rock with earth on it: heavy rain falls and leaves it completely bare. Such people get no rewards for their works: God does not guide the disbelievers. — Qur’an 2:264
“Serve God and associate nothing with Him; and do good: to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbours who are near, neighbours who are strangers, the companion by your side, the traveler, and what your right hands possess: For God does not love not the arrogant, the boastful.” — Qur’an 4:36
“Those who are merciful will be shown mercy by the Merciful. Be merciful to those on the earth and the One above the heavens will have mercy upon you. The womb is derived from the Merciful, so whoever keeps relations with his family then God will keep relations with him, and whoever abandons his family then God will abandon him.”
— Tradition of the Prophet, peace be upon him.

It's not an easy age, it
Rufaidah on This fire...
It is the sad state of affairs. Sometimes I think we are like those boys who find themselves alone on an island in Lord of the Flies. We are the children that think they are men. We play at being men. The loudest and strongest shout 'kill, kill, kill' and the rest either cheer them
