Day 3: Serving Others
Service: We hear that word again and again. But do we know how central it in in our faith?
In Surah al-Ma’un, Allah warns us not to be like the ones who discourage the feeding of the poor, and ignores the orphan. The interesting part is that this warning comes before the warning about being headless in prayer. Put simply, if you don’t care about others, but think you pray all the time, there is something wrong. Rather, serving others sincerely, will help the state of your prayer.
So this Ramadan, get a head start. Give a meal to a homeless person. Package some sweets for your extended family. Give someone a ride. And see what happens!
