28 Ramadan 2013: Accounts

Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other’s welfare, social justice can never be attained. – Helen Keller


If one took a moment to reflect, we would see that the idea that we all go back after our short lives to be accounted for the good and bad that we have done, is in itself, social justice on earth.

Imagine if all people thought twice before hurting others, or committing a crime, or simply taking into account not only themselves, but their families, neighborhood and extended society in every action they took, for what seems good to one may be destructive to others.

As we reflect on this, during possibly the day before the last day of Ramadan 2013, we ask god to bless us with ability to see the consequences of our own actions not only on ourselves but also on others.
