This book provides an account of the believers understanding of mercy, which depends on the love of Allah, their practicing this goodness at every moment of human life, in accordance with the injunction of the Quran, and the persons to whom they show mercy.
When you ask the people around you, What is mercy? Or How would you define mercy?, you would, most probably, receive a variety of responses and illustrations. Some say that a neighbour feeding stray dogs on the street is the most compassionate person they have ever met. Other illustrate mercy with the interest and sincerity shown by a relative when they were sick. Others, on the other hand, regard a friend weeping of someone who has passed away as a symbol of mercy. These definitions largely resemble one another. However, none of them offers the definition of mercy in its real sense.
The source of true compassion is love of Allah. An individual’s love of Allah leads him to feel an intimacy towards all these beings to whom Allah has given life. Someone who loves Allah feels a direct link with and closeness to His creatures’ he feels compassion and mercy towards them. Out of this profound love and attachment to Allah, Who crated him, he behaves towards others in accordance with good morals as set forth in the Quran. He fulfils Allah’s orders regarding mercy.
