Have you seen a random act of kindness or done one yourself? Muslims should lead the world in doing acts of kindness. Perhaps it’s time we showed the world what Muslims can do!

Here are some random acts of kindness done by some kind-hearted people (Muslims and not-yet Muslims) around the world. These images aim to soften our hearts and motivate us to assist others too, Insha’Allah. Or at the very least, they will make you smile, Insha’Allah! They are great ideas, aren’t they? Masha Allah, tabarakAllah.

By the way, these photos have been censored as much as we can, Alhamdulillah.

Random Act of Kindness 9

“I saw this woman buy two meals at a street vendor and give this man one of the meals. She introduced herself and talked to him about his life. She was his equal and just wanted to express inclusion to a fellow human being.”

Other acts of kindness that we may want to try:

  • Give up our seat on the bus or train to someone who needs it more than you do
  • Share your umbrella with someone on a rainy day
  • Bake cookies and share them with your neighbours
  • Break your fast and share your food with a homeless person
  • Compliment a total stranger about something they are wearing
  • Help someone struggling with heavy bags
  • Donate some books to the local library or school
  • Let the person behind you in the shopping queue go first
  • Renew an old friendship by sending a letter or a small gift to someone you haven’t talked to in a long time
  • others
