Comments :

In our culture where people are faithful, there are two important componants viz :

a. To enjoin patience on one another .

The believers has to exercise patience in every step of his life. In the Holy book of Quran at several places Allah has decreed the believers to keep patience. The patiecnce is required in every worship of Allah, patience is required to keep away from the forbidden things, patience is required to keep away from all the bad evils and patience is required to keep away a believer from the lucrative things of this world.

b. To enjoin kindness or compassion on one another .

Our culture is to show kindness to others and not to torture and killing the innocents. Allah has sent the Prophet Mohammad (saws) to the people to be kind and he teaches the same to his followers.

Ahadis :

1. The Prophet said " Allah is not kind to those who are not kind to others " ( Bukhari and Muslim )

2. The Prophet Mohammad (saws) said " That person is not amongst us who is not kind to our youngsters and who does not pay respect to the elders. ( Tirmizi )
