To bring about a just reconciliation between two contestants is charity, helping a person mount his animal or to load his baggage onto it is charity, a good word is charity, to remove obstacles in the street is charity, smiling upon the face of your brother is charity…sexual relations with your spouses is charity.
Prophet Muhammad
The Revelation
rthorsfelthas quotedlast year
He was constantly abused, sometimes stoned, thorns and rubbish were thrown over him – always, always he would pray, ‘Guide them on the right path God, for they know not what they do.’

    👍Worth reading

    This book is educational, entertaining and most of all comprehendible. You are never to focused on something to small and meaningless, and never lost in the whirlwind of the timeframe or historical perspective. This book has changed the way I view the world and will carry the lessons with me always
