Welcome Baba Khalid. Here is what he has to say about compassion:
"Compassion is not just a word that we throw away every day in religious congregations.
It is not a speech to deceive an audience with hustling lines.
It’s a way of living.
Compassion is a gift from Allah offered to the beloved people.
It needs to be cherished and maintained as long we live.
It might be the best gift we can possess to make our life sweet and tasty.
Otherwise our daily life will turn into a bitter candy.
Compassion is love in action.
But this action is like a plant; it needs to grow to lay its shade and share its beauty and every day it needs to be watered with care, passion and patience.
It needs a time to grow and lord’s blessing to finds its way.
What is surprising, this plant is so fragile that it can die at any moment once we stop watering it.
Long time ago I was wondering about the root of compassion and I could not find any answer except the respect and love of others.
I do not know who said that compassion is the famous living action ”I see me in you, I see you in me” but I believe it is more than love.
Love is the fabulous the cherry on the cake.
Compassion takes a lot of courage to be respectful because our life style is shifting the gear towards the iconic ego.
It takes a time and humbling soul to face the ultimate self-struggle. But it is worth it! "
So, if you haven't done it yet, love one another and you will reach compassion.
Grow your plant.
