Humanity can be defined as a quality of being human; the peculiar nature of man, by which he is distinguished from other beings. Being human does not mean that an individual possesses humanity.
We live in a world that, although it has borders, it is limitless. People can travel anywhere, see anything, experience every feeling that ever existed, but we are not satisfied. We try to impose borders on ourselves, we fight today to be recognized as not belonging to “their community”, to be labelled as part of a smaller group. We fight today to impose limits to a world in which yesterday people have fought so that it didn`t have any. And we applauded them.
Humanity is an important part of life which tells that to help others, try to understand others and realize the people problems with our own eyes and try to help them.
For showing humanity you don’t need to be a rich person, even a poor person can sow humanity by helping someone or sharing his or her food, etc.
When you show humanity you have a feel click or a pinch from your inner soul which you cannot get from something else.
Every religion tells us about humanity, peace and love that is why no religion is higher than humanity.
“I should like to help everyone if possible, Muslims, Hindus, Christine’s, Jew, Gentile, black men, white. We all want to help one another; human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world, there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for.
Yeah, today I will tell stories of peoples who are the biggest example of humanity and they are a human lover.
Firstly just imagine yourself I fill this class with garbage how will you feel like you will not stay in this but there is one who goes in that garbage search there and you what he found. He found a dead body of a child he took that body washed it and buried that body and from that day he used to search in the garbage with his wife this man is no other than Mr Abdul Sattar Edhi the lover of humanity. He is the founder and head of the Edhi Foundation, a non-profit social welfare organization in Pakistan. He is the man who serves is whole life serving for humanity without any selfishness. He has bathed and buried over a thousand unclaimed bodies in a time when selfishness and greed are at their peak and nobody seems to know the meaning of words like altruism and selflessness. His achievements in the field of charity are bound to make one think that his name is synonymous to nobility and humanity. And today he is running Pakistan biggest network of ambulances and shelter.
Moreover, his charity does not discriminate based on religion, race or gender. For him, religion is human rights. Edhi has spent many sleepless nights working and serving for humanity whether it is to bury unclaimed bodies or feeding any poor. Besides it, he lives a simple life living in a small house many of times he used to sleep on the concrete or on the small-batch outside his shop his qualities make him the man of simplicity and human being lover.
As Edhi Said: “No religion is higher than Humanity”
If you want to understand the quality of humanity in individual take note of what he does for people who give noting back in return to the favour they have offered.
One of the most outstanding examples of extraordinary humanity in a human being has been portrayed beautifully by Mother Teresa. Humanity means caring for and helping others whenever and wherever possible. Humanity means helping others at times when they need that help the most, humanity means forgetting your selfish interests at times when others need your help.
Humanity means extending unconditional love to every living being on Earth. A perfect example of humanity can be demonstrated in the following story.
A king with a kind heart once saw a pigeon and an Eagle fighting. He possessed the ability to communicate with birds and animals. The pigeon asked the king to save him from the eagle. The king told the eagle that he is ready to pay any price in return for saving the pigeon. The eagle asks the king to give him an equal amount of flesh to the weight of the flesh of the pigeon. Agreeing to the Eagle’s condition, the king starts chopping off his flesh equal to the flesh of the pigeon. After donating a little bit of his flesh, he still finds the pigeon heavier. Finally, he surrenders the whole of himself to the Eagle to eat. That is the moment when both the Eagle and the pigeon turn into angels who appeared on the earth to test the extent of the king’s humanity. The king is now rewarded with the most precious rewards and heaven afterlife for his deed of humanity.
This story can be understood as an exaggerated statement so that individuals understand the importance of humanity in their day to day lives. It is important to understand one important fact; an individual’s life is successful not by the number of degrees he or she attains but by the degree of humanitarian activities that individual is into on a day to day basis.
Serving the poor and the disabled is one of the greatest humanitarian help an individual can provide in his or her lifetime. It is essential to understand the fact that we are extremely lucky to have everything we desire at any point of the time we need. Serving the needy means that you think that you have more than enough resources to your disposal.
People who always crib that they do not have sufficient facilities available despite having everything can never provide humanitarian services because if one has the mindset of not being self- sufficient, how can he or she help someone else. One is always remembered for his or her good deeds and it is essential to understand that there is no better deed than providing services for humanitarian causes.
If eating and having fun is only what we are born to do then we should keep one thing in mind; even animals can do such activity; if God has made us humans there has to be some reason behind it.
Only human beings can understand the importance of humanity and it is humanity as a result of intelligence which gives the essence to human existence. You will not need a hefty bank account to contribute towards humanitarian activities. Paying your domestic help fairly is also humanity. You are willing to pay thousands of bucks for your medical check-up but when it comes to paying your employee; you want to save every penny.
Humanitarian activities should never be performed to achieve fame or to gain a status symbol. You can easily achieve fame with the work you do. Lifting the heavy bag of an old woman is humanity, helping a disabled to cross the road is humanity, helping your mom in doing work is humanity; in fact, helping anyone who is in need is humanity.
As soon as we understand the importance of humanity in day to day life, the purpose for which we are on Earth is automatically fulfilled.
Although these people do things for humanity on a larger scale we should come on ourselves what we have done for humanity every day we spend our time hanging around with friends going outside for parties have we ever feed a poor person on the road have we ever realize how poor people live their lives no we haven’t because we never realize that for what we are in this world we never realize our duties towards humanity.
We should realize for what we are in this world because every religion teaches us humanity and one who serve humanity is the happiest man on the globe real happiness is your inner satisfaction which you can get by serving humanity what so ever how much you are rich you can’t buy inner happiness.
WORD OF ALLAH – IN HOLY QURAN
“O mankind! Be conscious of your Lord, who has created you from one soul (Adam), and out of it created its mate (Eve), and out of the two spread many men and women. And remain conscious of God, in whose name you demand [your rights] from one another, and of these ties of kinship. Verily, God is ever watchful over you!” (Quran 4:1)
God addresses entire humanity and asks them to be conscious of Him, to be aware of His presence. God reminds people of a forgotten reality: their earthly origins. All human beings have One God, their Creator, one father – Adam – and one mother, Eve. The plight of modernity could begin to heal if human beings remember their origins.
Human beings did not appear on this earth by their own will. Rather, someone else willed that human beings inhabit the earth. Someone else willed their existence and prepared the earth and sun in perfect balance to make life possible. If people were to recall this simple fact, they would proceed in the right direction. The One who willed human existence has perfect knowledge of humanity and their strengths and their weaknesses. If humans recognized this, they would obey the One they owe their existence to.
Just like human beings have come into existence by the will of the One, human beings also trace back to the same parents. If people were to realize this, racism, ethnic superiority, and exploitation would end. Siblings would stop fighting and taking each other’s life. Siblings would realize their common Creator and be conscious of Him, and give their “kin” their due rights. Human beings would not divide themselves into casts and classes. Human beings would not let race, skin colour, or national origin determine superiority.
If human beings were to realize that another soul was created from the original single soul to be their mate and to spread both men and women throughout the world, they would respect women more. Women would not have to go through centuries of oppression, and their humanity would not have been denied for centuries. Unfortunately, when human beings tried to correct one wrong, they fell into another one. They forgot that a soul was created for a soul, that a woman makes a man complete. Men and women are not engaged in an eternal battle of genders; rather, they have been created to complement and complete each other.
God lays out the social fabric of human society, which lies in the family. God could have created multiple families instead of Adam and Eve in the beginning, but He chose to create Adam and Eve and spread humanity from their seed. Islamic ethics considers the family to be the natural basis and cornerstone of a moral society. A family consists of a human couple and their (legal) children where both the man and woman have each essential roles to play in keeping the family happy and intact.
In the latter portion of the verse is a reminder to be conscious of God, to do what is right and to stay away from wrongdoing in whose Name people take oaths, swear allegiances, and ask favours.
Lastly, the verse ends with a reminder that God is ever watchful over everything, big or small; nothing escapes His knowledge and sight. The knowledge that God is watching helps one be conscious of Him.
