Transcripts - Kindness
Kindness means that we recognize thatothers are fragile ( that we have the powerto hurt or heal them ) and we choose to behealers. When we are kind, we dont takeadvantage of our power or of other peoples vulnerabilities. Instead, we seek tocomfort, encourage and strengthen those around us.
To be kind requires empathy: we mustconsciously attune ourselves to the life experience of another being to knowwhat will feel good for them. Kindnessbuilds confidence, because it lets us seeothers in all of their complicated, needy humanity, rather than putting them on pedestals.
Kindness does not ask whether it will be repaid. Even so, our kindness oftenripples through the world around us; it invites others to be kind in turn.
Aisha (ra)reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Whenever kindness is in a thing it adorns it, and whenever it is removed from anything, it disfigures it." [Muslim]
