Universal compassion


“Be mindful that, in my estimation, the scope of sympathy is very wide. One should not exclude any group or individual. I do not say – like the ignorant people of this age – that you should limit your kindness to only Muslims. I say that you should have sympathy for all of God’s creations no matter who they are, whether a Hindu, a Muslim, or someone else. I never approve of the words of such people who wish to limit sympathy only to their own people.”

(Al Hakam, 10 November 1905; Malfuzat [1988], Vol. 4, p. 217)
