Kissing the Beggars

May 27, 2018 Comments Off on Kissing the Beggars

“Imam Zayn Al-Abidin, May Allah be well pleased him, looked after the poor people in the city of Madinah and took into account their feelings and their explanations of how they understood life as a whole. For example, when he would give the beggars some charity, he would kiss them in order to make them smile, so that he wouldn’t see the mark of abasement and need on their faces.”
