Making Beggars Smile

March 12, 2019 Comments Off on Making Beggars Smile

“Imam Zayn Al-Abidin, the son of Imam al-Husayn, Allah be well pleased with them, looked after the poor people in the community and took care of even their feelings and their sentiments of how they understood life. For example, when he would give 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.”
