Showing mercy.

Showing mercy to created beings is among the greatest means of being forgiven. Allah forgave a prostitute who quenched the thirst of a dog; so how about showing mercy to the weak, and giving relief to the distressed and victory to the oppressed of human beings?

رحمة الخلق من أعظم أسباب المغفرة، فقد غفر الله لبغِيٍّ سقت كلباً، فكيف برحمة الضعيف وإغاثة الملهوف ونصرة المظلوم من البشر
