Smiling is Charity

This is a public service message for all Muslim brothers and sisters out there. If you already adhere to this type of thinking then that is great, otherwise please heed this message. It is not something that I came up with but rather it is the teaching of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

(i) I have noticed that some people tend to think that you can only be religious if you look unhappy or if you have a frown on your face. Something like the following would do.

(ii) What these people do not realize is that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said that, “Your smiling in the face of your brother is charity.” Something like the following would do.

(iii) Some people can overdo the smile and turn it into the creey MSA brother smile. By that I mean the following.

So brothers and sisters, friends and enemies, please refrain from having he Grouchy Muslim look and the Creepy MSA brother smile as well. Islam is about moderation.
