Better Give Than Receive

Updated on May 28, 2009

We often hear this expression , and may also often do we, how beautiful when we can always share happiness with others and that there are no prominent differences between us all. Various conditions of life around us. If only we want to open our eyes, many social condition around us. Not all of us rich, not all of us have intellectual ability, not everyone can do the best. I will review this good advice by Islam side. I realize all religions have good advice like this. Not just Islam only. There is an Islam advice said that: "If you give something to other people (with the right hand), not until the left hand know. Let the GOD only knew "

The gift has personal dimensions, social, and spiritual (vertical-horizontal). A pure giver give something to other people based on a sense full sincerity. A pure giver give something to other people because of demands from within, that he should give. Action to provide for human well-bred, is a reflection of faith without intention. So there is no motivation for get a reply, the reward, the views, or the praise. Sometimes the desire to give something against the flow sometimes dealing with the death. There is a deep inner satisfaction for us that can provide something useful for others. At least you can help others. Start from the small things that we can give us to our family, an then for friend an the bigger gift is to our country. With a willingness to give can give us an example for others to also give each other. In the Islam study “ Better give than Receive” method is proven in daily life. If we give with our sincere we will get replies that do not be suspected. For example we give some money to other who need it, the reply we received not like some money too. But in different form like easy to work and easy doing business.

Depending on each charity's intention, gave the right hand while the left hand doesn’t know it is special and just only God knew. But deliberately give people must know the intention to give motivation to others to do the same worship, arouse the awareness of social care for the fellow is a noble action. More blessed to give than to receive always, Dead Sea (in the middle east), which always receives fresh water without limit, but there does not have life. So make life more enthusiastic with the help of the affliction with no limit Religion, race and class.Because God will reply in accordance with our hearts and deeds. Does not depend on giving the sesion or time also, because each day God gives us breath and the food. So help your brother like that which God has given to us, as the form of our gratitude.

I invite all of you to discuss about this issue. Let’s talk from any perspective. Please join this HUB.thanks

      prasetio - I am hoping that the world is entering a time of change. So many people are talking about peace, and helping others, and performing acts of goodness. Have you checked out the Hubs for Peace? Peace be with you, prasetio.

He providing all in the nature is for us, even though birds also get food from it.That's what I say,doing good by giving to each other.Simple and thanks again!

      I love you hub ...good thoughts. I was just saying the same thing the other day a sort of way. We worry everyday to the fullest about what the next day holds. We never enjoy the moment. As you said God gives us breath and food ...He feeds the birds and they do not worry ...why do we worry so much?

      Anyways ....good article best to you!
