FULFILLING THE NEED OF OTHERS



To fulfill the needs and necessities of others is the choicest of good deeds. The religion of Islam does not advocate self-interest and self-centeredness. The best person is the one who is more useful to others. A person, who restricts his efforts only to serve himself and his family, is like an animal.

Imam Mohammed Baqer (a.s.) said,
“The most beloved action in front of Allah is to please the servant of Allah, feeding him and paying off his debts.” Imam Moosa Kazim (a.s.) said, “There are some special servants of Allah, the All-knowing, who keep fulfilling the needs of other people. They will be saved from the difficulties of the Day of Judgement. If, someone pleases a believing servant, Allah the All-knowing will make his heart happy on the day of Judgement.
(Usul-e-Kafi, vol. 2, Chapter of fulfilling the needs of a believer)

Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s.) has narrated
“If a believer narrates his needs to his brother-in-faith, and the latter despite being capable of doing so, does not help the former, then Allah will bring him on the Day of Judgement with his hands and feet tied.”
(Behaarul Anwaar, Vol. 74)

However, nowadays, the moral and ethical situation is such that if somebody is asked for some favours, he feels irritated and annoyed.

Ameerul Momineen Ali (a.s.) says
“If people come to you with needs, then it is mercy of Allah that is being showered upon you. ”
(Ghurarul Hikam)

Another tradition reveals,
“The more a person is blessed by Allah with bounties, the larger will be the number of people coming to him with their needs and requests.”

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
