Be Kind to Others
Quran 16:91 reads “Indeed, Allah enjoins justice, and the doing of good to others; and giving like kindred; and forbids indecency, and manifest evil, and wrongful transgression. He admonished you that you may take heed.”
When someone hurts or annoys you, or when they’re simply not useful to you, you’re presented with a choice. You can go negative, taking revenge, bullying, or ignoring them, or you can go positive, showing kindness and civility.
According to the Quran, you should choose kindness.
This verse doesn’t say do good for a certain group—it says do good for others, period.
There’s good reason for this. When you’re kind, you stop cycles of unkindness, wherein you’re unkind to someone, and they treat you, or others, the same. And not only this, but you multiply goodness—people are much more likely to pay forward acts of kindness, despite the fact that those acts are rare.
The Quran contains much wisdom on how to live well, but this is some of the most important of what it has to say. Avoid injustice and unkindness, and your life will be changed for the better.
