“Bear in mind that God Almighty is greatly pleased with virtuous deeds, and desires that sympathy be shown to His Creation. Were He to favour malevolence, He would have encouraged wicked deeds. However, Allah the Exalted (سبحانه تعالى شأنه) is Holy and far above such inclinations. […] Hence, those of you who are affiliated with me, bear in mind that you should show empathy towards every individual, regardless of their religious convictions; treat all with kindness and courtesy, for this mirrors the teachings of the Holy Quran:

وَیُطۡعِمُوۡنَ الطَّعَامَ عَلٰی حُبِّہٖ مِسۡکِیۡنًا وَّیَتِیۡمًا وَّاَسِیۡرًا 

“[And they feed, for love of Him, the poor, the orphan, and the prisoner. (Surah ad-Dahr, Ch.76: V.9)]

“The majority of these captives and prisoners [during the Holy Prophet’ssa time] were non-believers. Reflect, then, on the boundless compassion exemplified by Islam. In my view, no other moral teachings can match the perfection found in Islam.”

(Al Hakam, 24 January 1905; Malfuzat [1988], Vol. 4, pp. 218–219)
