Compassion الرحمة

حقا، والله هو الرحيم ومغرم الرحمة، وقال انه يعطي لالرأفة وما لا يعطي على قاسية

“Verily, God is Compassionate and is fond of compassion, and He gives

to the compassionate what He does not give to the harsh.”

Do they do it for Allah, the mass killings, the videos, with their bare

hands twisting mercy into ribbons of blood and their prayers

flying on the sour winds of hatred to stain the heavens?

Is a human being better off without a head, and the gesture becomes

the waving flag of Love? لن تدخلوا الجنة حتى يكون لديك الإيمان. وأنك لن يكمل إيمانك حتى تحبوا بعضكم بعضا.

“You will not enter paradise until you have faith. And you will not complete your faith

until you love one another.”  Love-  Not the wily hand servant of power,

not the densely woven fabric of terror, not the tricky mirror of self righteousness.

Love like a crown of Light yields no space for the heavy helm of delusion.

هل تحب خالقك؟ أحب المخلوقات زميل الخاص بك أولا.

Do you love your creator? Love your fellow creatures first.” 

Where does compassion live within Islamic State? Compassion. الرحمة.
