I feel sad when I see the world when I see that people are so concerned about their money, their fame, their gold, or only about themselves.
I feel agitated when our lives have literally round around ourselves and not around others.
I know how hard it is to do good in this time and age, but shouldn’t we all now play our parts and unburden the scared souls that depend upon us?
Instead of evolving to become a good nation than those of the previous we are becoming so unsympathetic, rude, harsh, and hard heart. Moral values, dignity, humanity, and peace are dying daily; we are just sitting in our homes doing nothing.
I suffer that I am not doing my part the best way I should have been. But I believe small efforts will someday transform into something big.
If you are someone who is trying to be good and do good things for the world.

Don’t waste your stamina on people who are going to forget you but on those who are near to you and who is asking from you.
13. “Every Act of Kindness Is a Form of Charity” — Prophet Muhammad
If you will help your mom with chores, it’s a form of charity. if you water your plant, it is a form of charity, if you remove a pebble from the road so no one will get hurt, is a form of charity, if you smile to your neighbour, it is a form of charity if you say some good words to the beggars it is a form of charity.

16. “I Wish to Do Something Great and Wonderful, but I Must Start by Doing the Little Things Like They Were Great and Wonderful” —Albert Einstein
Great things come out of the small things you think to be insignificant; it’s your courage it’s your humanity that urged you to do good even though everyone is going to mock you for its quantity. Yet you are powerful when you choose to do good and instead of getting down by their words yet, you still did good. You showed the world that goodness isn’t dead.
And when all of us should play our part and neglected it but you were the one who did it even though of everyone’s mockery.
17. “Paradise Lies Under the Feet of Your Mother” —Prophet Muhammad
Isn’t it so profound that the deed of goodness has such a high status that it can even let you enter paradise? The reward of goodness is so high as to attain that eternal salvation.
And most of the time, we neglect to do good to those who are much more deserving of it. Our mothers first bear us for nine months in her stomach, going through lots of trouble during the pregnancy, then when we are born, the care, the nourishment, the love she showered upon us without a blink of scorn, tiredness. How there is this permanent smile on her face even when her back is in utter damnation from the work she does.
Isn’t she deserving of good treatment? So, I asked you to do good to your mother, be good to her. cherish her, love her, hug her because you will never get a companion like her in your life.
May God bless our mothers. May He be merciful to them and be kind to them.
18. “Kindness Is a Mark of Faith and Whoever Who Is Not Kind Does Not Have Faith” —Prophet Muhammad
This is such a remarkable statement. how it shows us that those who aren’t kind, humble and do good think that they are not going to be questioned and how it is not going to affect their lives.
But if you were to take up a Holy Scripture, be it Bible, Torah, or Quran, you will find this verse where God talks about “the Day, the Day of Judgement, the Day of Reckoning, the Hour, the Last Hour” and he has told us that on “that Day” every part of your body is going to testify for you or against you.
This gives me a chill to even think about. How every part of our body will complain about us, of how we used them, where we used them.
So I encourage you to do good even if it’s against yourself or even if no one is doing it.
19. “The Slip of The Tongue Is More Dangerous than The Slip of The Feet” — Uthman Ibn Affan
We have to be conscious of our speech and words. how we use them, how we speak them and how we think twice about letting them voiced out.
Because the value of speech is unique, the value of words is powerful, and the value of voice is courageous.
You might bring up a person out of his depression, out of his anxiety, out of his despair through your words through your kindness. by creating a space for them to know that they are worthy of everything they have, they are beautiful the way they have been fashioned, they are creative with the talent they possessed.
So let us create a space to do good for the sake of encouraging each other and earning Paradise.
20. “Don’t Treat People the Way They Treat You, Treat Them the Way God Treat You” — Dave Willis
I love this quote because it inspires me to do good. It tells me that people are going to be unfair, and rude to you so do not let their harsh behaviour be a part of your existence. You are created with goodness, you are capable of changing the world, if you try to do good, there might be others who wanted to do good but are afraid to do so because they feel it’s not worth it. So be a part of their inspiration and motivation and encourage them to do good and be different from the others.
I know that God treats everyone with justice, love, care and attention. so take these qualities and adapt yourself to them. because in the end, it will be you and god and your goodness.
Did You Know?
“The Reason Why Some People Are so Kind Is that The World Has Been so Unkind to Them that They Don’t Want Other People to Feel the Way They Did” – Theprophetspath.
I love these words because I found myself being part of this saying.
I love this because I have seen a change in the world that I never witnessed before.
It’s just instead of being humble, kind, and generous we have adapted to cruel words, and talks.
And you will find that most who don’t have lots of things and are poor, are way more generous and kind to you than those who have plenty.
I used to think why they were so humble.
Now I know because we have been so unkind to them that they do not want others to feel the same way.
They don’t want me and you to feel that our existence is insignificant. That we are not worthy of anything.
They want us to feel loved, they want to show that there are people who will be just to you, that they will cherish you and they will be there for you.
Even though they are broken from the inside.
Yet they will not want to see you broken yet they still want to be good even though no one has done well to them.
So let’s take lessons from these people and be kind, generous, just, good, and humble to everyone even if it’s against my soul and being. Yet i have to spread goodness and positivity.
I hope that you love the do good quotes that I shared in this blog and would love to apply some of them in your own life and would never be discouraged to think that the small good deeds are insignificant and it does not matter to the world and its humanity.
May God Bless You and Sustain You.
