The husband and I had a long and winding conversation yesterday that eventually led us to these verses in the Qur'an:
And they feed, for the love of God, the indigent, the orphan, and the captive,
(Saying),"We feed you for the sake of God alone: no reward do we desire from you, nor thanks.
We only fear a Day of distressful Wrath from the side of our Lord."
But God will deliver them from the evil of that Day, and will shed over them a Light of Beauty and (blissful) Joy.
If we really loved God like we are suppose to, and we followed the letter and spirit of this verse, if we sought to help each other, as a means to express our LOVE for God, imagine the good we could do.
