It is written in the scriptures that whosoever kills a single person, it is as if he has killed the entire humankind; and whosoever saves a single person, it is as if he has saved the entire humankind (Al Qur’an 5:32).
This beautiful, this sacred message, these holy words must be understood in today’s perspectives. Killing is not only taking one’s life. Killing is also inflicting pain upon others, causing injury to others, spreading rumors and gossiping about others. Character assasination is also killing.
It is high time that we understand the interdependency of all humanbeings. We are one family. And if someone suffers because of us, then it is just a matter of time before we are made to suffer.
The coming year 2012 is the year of Total Transformation. Those hearts, which are not responding to the call of Peace, Love, and Harmony – will get buried under the weight of their own heaviness.
Simply put: This is the year to love and be loved, shun hatred, shun violence, shun the habit of backbiting and inflicting pain upon others. Kill hatred and anger before they kill you!
