“The greatest achievement of the human spirit is to live up to ones aspirations and make the most of ones resources.”
Social interactions are important to humans. By meeting each other and sharing our knowledge as well as experiences we grow and become more enlightened. An important Hadith (saying) of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) is that religion is not what one formally or ritualistically practices but how one deals with others. It is without performing deeds which demonstrate one’s beliefs. Every Muslim is the recipient, guardian, and executor of God’s will on earth; his responsibilities are all encompassing. A Muslim’s duty to act in defense of what is right is as much part of his faith as is his duty to oppose wrong. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w) once said, “If someone among you sees wrong he must right it by his hand if he can (deed, conduct, action). If he cannot, then by his tongue (speak up, verbally oppose); if he cannot, then by his gaze (silent expression of disapproval); and if he cannot, then in his heart. The last is the minimum expression of his conviction (faith, courage).”
ABSN visits orphanages, prisons, hospitals, and other centres to promote social bonding with others. Food, clothes, blankets, books, toys, prayer mats, carpets and water tanks are a few items donated during such visits. Several classrooms have also been built and provided with desks, chairs, tables and other equipment to assist the communities on the ground to learn more effectively.
