Love is the Fertile Ground from Which Mercy Emerges (Gems from the 2010 Celebrate Mercy Broadcast

  • Respect women as soulful equals (Shaykh Abdullah Adhami)
  • Increase in compassionate acts towards others in order to build trust. Build trust and compassion in your life this year, and then the next year (Imam Afroz Ali)
  • Never in anyone who walked the earth has there been a heart that is so soft and yet so brave, peace and blessings be upon him (Shaykh Faraz Rabbani)
  • We are literally drowning in blessings.
  • Soundness of faith is on strength of attachment. Strengthening of the heart is in reminders and frequent remembering.
  • When love something/someone a lot, you make mention of them a lot.
  • Strive to show mercy and compassion to all those around you. Forbearance, generosity.
  • Mercy is the foundation of all relationships. Love is the fertile ground from which mercy emerges. Let us revive mercy in our marriages.  (Imam Zaid Shakir)
  • In our world, love is not always reciprocal, but with the Divine, always reciprocal. Let us love the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. Let us love God, let that love translate into mercy that touches people’s lives in deep and meaningful ways and translates into obedience.
  • Gratitude means that we use blessings in way that they were created.
  • Let those who possess this love not be stingy.. Bring it to the marketplace, the workplace, the home. My heart holds your love, my tongue offers blessings, but my limbs often fall short.”  (Sidi Haroon Sellers)
