Letter Title: “Message of Islam-Ahmadiyya: Compassion for Humanity”
As we mark one year of COVID-19, the past year has not only highlighted the value of community health that we so often take for granted, but has also allowed us to reflect on other social issues. From racial injustice to gender inequality to political fiascos, this past year has bombarded us with headlines of conflict and strife. However, these times have also allowed us to reflect on our own personal values and beliefs which we wish to maintain in our everyday lives. Although 2021 has just begun, its predecessor has taught us that compassion is of the utmost importance in wild and indescribable times, such as our current days.
In Islam, one simply has to read only a few verses of the Holy Quran to see commandments rooted in mercy and compassion. During the life of Prophet Muhammad we see that he extended his love to all humanity not only for Muslims – for every person, irrespective of differences, as well as extending it to all animals and living things. As Ahmadi Muslims, we see this same message of peace being emphasized. “My countrymen!” writes Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, founder of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, “A religion which does not inculcate universal compassion is no religion at all. Similarly, a human being without the faculty of compassion is no human at all.” Regardless of how one identifies in terms of their spirituality, compassion is the foundation of all beliefs and human relations. As this year continues, let’s aim to live by these compassionate words.
