Kindness is a great virtue. God is love and the best prayer to God is the love of His creation.
Kind words and kind deeds are a sure way of winning God's grace. The best and the easiest way of pleasing God is to serve mankind, by wiping the tears of others in grief and sorrow. We can serve wiping the tears of others in grief and sorrow. We can serve humanity through kind words of comfort, by feeding the hungry and cheering the depressed.
All religions of the world have preached love and kindness to all living things. Kindness is not confined to human beings alone, but to all living things. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) warned people against cruelty to animals. He advised his people to treat them with kindness. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) used to relate to his companions the instance of a Jewish women. She was punished by God starving her cat to death. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) also used to relate another story of a woman who found a dog dying of thirst. She took off her shoe and lowered it into a nearby well and drew water from it. She gave it to the thirsty dog to drink. This good deed earned her God's forgiveness for all her previous sins.
