Empathy is the capacity to recognize feelings that are being experienced by another sentient or semi-sentient (in

fiction writing) being. Someone may need to have a certain amount of empathy before they are able to feel compassion.

Empathy is an ability with many different definitions. They cover a broad spectrum, ranging from caring for other people and having a desire to help them, to experiencing emotions that match another person's emotions, to knowing what the other person is thinking or feeling, to blurring the line between self and others.

Even though the prevailing image in mainstream media is often that Islam is a religion of violence, many forget that since its inception Islam called for a system of social justice and responsibility for others. From early on in his life, the Prophet Muhammad was concerned about the state of the less fortunate. In Muhammad’s time, Qurayshi society, which once took care of its members, not only neglected the less fortunate, but did not even provide basic protection in a world that depended on tribal protection. Among the central principles reiterated time and again in the Qur’an is the responsibility to help the other.

Muslims are never to become complacent or assume that hardship can never affect them. In fact, a great responsibility is placed on a Muslim to work for social justice and to be at the forefront of alleviating social ills like poverty. This is one of the core messages of Islam that are too often neglected by many, including Muslims.

I feel it is necessary to remind you and myself that poverty is alive and well in the United States of America.  Each day we see news clips of people going hungry, without clothing, and even without a place to lay their head to get a good nights rest.  Many times we are remove from these situations because Allah has blessed us to have all the comforts and accomodations of life without any difficulty.

We at Zakat U.S.A.. are constantly trying to exhibit as much Empathy as possible and in turn helping the less fortunate among us on a daily basis.  We would like to present a short video by Abu Tariq Hawasli on the subject of empathy.

After watching this video we implore you to look into your budget and make a generous donation that will begin to help those less fortunate among us. Zakat U.S.A.
