Forgive him who wrongs you;
Join him who cuts you off;
Do good to him who does evil to you;
and speak the truth even if it be against yourself.
—Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
Fears for the fate of more than 200 Nigerian girls turned even more nightmarish when the leader of the Islamist group that kidnapped them said he’ll sell them.
Please stop and pray for these girls. Right now. Pray for their safety, their safe return to their families, and that their kidnappers get just punishments for their horrible actions.
Emptiness is greatness. It is like the bird that spontaneously sings and feels it is part of the universe.
If you are not ready to exchange your own happiness for the suffering of others, you will never know happiness, in any life.
