Sheikh Akber Sultanul Awliya Muhiuddin Ibn Arabi ra said:
“ The meaning of being kind and merciful to your fellow brethren is nothing except saving them from hell, guiding them to paradise,
leading them out of ignorance towards knowledge,
from being guilty towards devotion and
from loss towards perfection.
This is so, because no individual can complete his faith (eman) until he wishes the same for his fellow brethren what he desires for himself.”
