Muslims and compassion. Much has been spoken recently about Muslims and compassion many words bandied about, this and that great debates words flung everywhere.
Here is a link to a person shot in face by attempted murder by white supremicist in Texas following 9/11 on the basis of religious belief. Others were successfully murdered.
Here is the brief story of this man shot in face, eye now askew, who works, as the koran and muslim faith teach him....to stop the execution of the person who shot him and killed others.
Woring very hard is he. Execution to occur tomorrow.
The compassionate person is RAis Bhulyan, he to be executed Mark Stroman. I'm surprised there are any articles about it... pleasently surprised.
I claimed victory in that war of words of sorts that did occur...I again claim victory. Islam may be as peaceful and producing of compassionate action as any other of the worlds main religions. The question is in how you look for it, and how you find it.
Victory is proven in action.
REad it and weep naysayers....read it and weep.
Compassion reigns supreme always may it reign...
A partial quote from the article....."Rais Bhulyan has been working ever since his recovery to spare the life of Mark Stroman. This Muslim man believes that Islam does not condone the taking of life. Also, Rais's parents taught him that forgiveness trumps anger
"This order considers that progress can be achieved more rapidly during a single month of self-transformation through terrifying conditions in rough terrain and in "the abode of harmful forces" than through meditating for a period of three years in towns and monasteries"....Takpo Tashi Namgyal.
