Its the fault of the homeless, the poor, the women, the children, and the weak !

There has been a lot of negative emotions in the air lately with sad news of deaths of loved ones, and more news of people facing challenges in Ramadan (those near to us as well as in distant lands). We get news about killings of women and children in war zones and occupied territories, the poor and homeless being rejected and accused of laziness, and Samaritans who are threatened with persecution if caught giving help to others. My family and I too have been receiving our fair share of some sad news and challenges. How do I keep looking up when gloom appears to be everywhere ?
1. Be grateful. With whatever we have, always believe its more than enough. I believe there are people who love me even when sometimes I do feel lonely. I believe that something better will always come even when I lose something. And being grateful never disappoints.
2. Forgive everything and everyone. I do have my share of anger and frustration with leadership. How some people lead countries and the world and create anger, delusion and chaos rather than LOVE and PURPOSE. Often too, we see things from our perspectives and get upset with those who deal differently from our way of thinking. It is hard but I do make an effort to forgive and pray for them.
3. GIVE. Keep on giving and looking for various ways to give. I learned that giving charity and doing work where the intention of GIVING is set, I am at peace and my relationships and finances actually improve.
4, Be solutions focused. With all these problems happening in the world, let us reflect the root cause. What CAN I DO so that these problems will not happen in the future.

These questions and actions lead to your purpose. Some of you have asked me via FB, whatsapp and phone calls about my perspective on the feeding of the homeless and the poor and what I think about the ban and fine imposed, I stick to what is TRUTH and focus on my intention on the GIVING. This message in the Quran is my reminder as it has been prophesied that what is good will be stopped and what is bad will be allowed in the end of times. We have already expected this but we need to know which side we must remain. “Have you seen him who denies the Recompense? That is he who repulses the orphan (harshly) , and urges not on the feeding of al-Miskeen the poor” (Al-Quran 107:1-3)
