What is "Strive to Bring Alive"

The purpose of this column is to motivate and encourage everyone to make an attempt to bring alive the very simple actions that will be presented every two weeks. Insha-Allah by making these very easy actions part of our daily lives, we will benefit from the blessings of practising on these a’amaal and they will also become a stepping stone towards doing greater actions.
As a means of encouragement to others, and also to spur us ahead, a vote counter has been attached. The idea is that for two weeks every person reading this column should make an effort to practice on the ‘amal (action) presented. At the end of the two weeks, those who have practiced upon it for at least one week or more should vote “YES.” This will Insha-Allah encourage others also to do the same.

It is so easy to give charity and to spend on others from the husband’s wealth. The real feeling of joy and inner-satisfaction will come when the wife will also spend from her own wealth. Give it a try, sacrifice the desire to buy that new designer garment or that pretty ornament, and use that same money to buy some groceries for a widow or clothing an orphan. This gesture will make one experience something that one’s heart has always been craving for. Bringing a smile to a dejected soul or showing kindness to one who has no shoulder to cry on is that missing piece of the puzzle - the piece of compassion in our lives. Did we ever see someone cry out of joy? Try giving a deserving old beggar, who has been receiving five cents and ten cents the entire day, a one hundred rand note!
