5 Ramadan 2013: Sincerity


Sincerity makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite. – Charles Spurgeon

We heard a really interesting talk today about sincerity and the impact it has on life, livelihood, goodness, internal tranquility and peace, and clarity of approach in life.

It is said that sincerity is doing actions that are free of the ego, actions that do not seek:

  1. Other people’s praise, honor , love or recognition
  2. To push away other people’s dispraise and harm
  3. Receipt of help or a benefits from others in return

In this month, we urge ourselves and you, our fellow readers, to practice sincerity in all our actions, be it charity, outings, work, and relationships. More specifically, we urge ourselves to do good deeds that benefit humanity with sincerity with an aim to thank and seek love of a merciful and all-knowing god bearing the fruits of sincerity both in life and after-life without the glitz and glamor of fame and fortune.
