Bring Joy To Others
We have become extremely individualistic and materialistic. It’s all about me, my spouse and my children. How can I can drive a smarter car, renovate my home, own the latest gadgets, improve my standard of living so that me and family can enjoy more comforts and luxuries.
How can I earn more so I can spend on my family more freely, take them on holidays and buy for them whatever they want. This mind set has trapped and enslaved us. It has constricted our lives.
We need to move away from this attitude. We need look at how we can benefit humanity.
There is a saying : “If you want to do one good thing in the world, the best thing you can do is give other people joy”
In a Jumuah lecture at Masjid Ibadur Rahmaan, in Uitenhage, Mufti Yusuf Moosagie explains how to bring joy to fellow human beings:
1. Assist someone in need
2. Greet all
3. Smile when greeting people
4. Share a word of encouragement
5. Pay a compliment
6. Exchange gifts
