Doing good to others gives comfort to the heart

  1. The first person who benefits from an act of charity is the benefactor himself, by seeing changes in himself and in his manners, by finding peace, by watching a smile form on the lips of another person.

    If you find yourself to be in difficulty or distress, show kindness to others, and you will be the first to find solace and comfort. Give to the needy, defend the oppressed, help those in distress, and visit the sick: you will find that happiness surrounds you from all directions.

    An act of charity is like perfume it benefits the user, the seller,
    and the buyer. Furthermore, the psychological benefits that one receives from helping others are indeed great. If you suffer from depression, an act of charity will have a more potent effect on your sickness than will the best available medicine.

    Even when you smile upon meeting others, you are giving charity. The Prophet (Blessings and Peace be upon him) said:

    "Do not dismiss certain acts of kindness by deeming them to be insignificant, even if (such an act) is to meet your brother with a smiling face (for that is a deed which might weigh heavily in your scale of deeds)."

    The blog I need help with is islam75.wordpress.com.

  2. Nice and I could not agree more, but the more appropriate place for this would have been in the off-topic forum rather than in one of the main technical support forums.

    hi im new here and myself and a colleague are hoping to raise funds for scope by climbing mount kilimanjaro, although it wont be as high profiled as the comic relief event but its for a good cause. i agree with islam the thought of doing something extreme to raise funds as well as push my own personal boundaries is an exhilirating thought. i dont know how things will turn out but i hope we can hit our goal... feel free to keep check on our progress via our blog/diary where we will be keeping everyone updated with pics and videos of the events we will try hold and the photos of the actual trek. keep up all the good work for those less fortunate and in hard times!
