We only ever really see a small fraction of a person. Our perspective is incredibly limited.
We don’t have access to the hearts of those around us, nor do we hear their cries in the quietest portion of the night.
And often, when we make negative assumptions about others, it is a reflection of our own ill feelings and insecurities.
The person we look at with pity, the one whom we think does no good, the one we laugh at…
That person may have thousands of prayers called in their name as they sleep from those they have helped in secret.
Many beautiful souls live amongst us.
They are those who are so valuable in the sight of their Lord, yet their beauty is overlooked by the world.
If only we understood.
“O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them.”
Quran – 49:11
