Charity, a gracious characteristic in man, brings welfare in the community. It makes our hearts overflow with unexplainable happiness and extends the message of brotherhood and unblemished love among the people.
Even though the word charity was not altered much over the centuries, the subtexts have changed a lot. Charity has been always associated with the assistance of the poor. Some researchers have defined charity as the groundwork of society. The civilization cannot grow and thrive without helping the underprivileged to carry on living.
The Chairman and Founder of Adgeco Group, Mr. Mohamed Dekkak believes that giving to charity or helping other people with your own hands is what makes this world a better place to live in. He has organized a foundation in order to aid the people in Morocco and West Africa particularly the children, women, socially disadvantaged and physically challenged individual.
The act of charity was acclaimed in the olden days. Many recognized persons survived and sustained their lives on alms given by different well off people. At that time, the practice was considered as everything that we can share in charity for the welfare of the people and the community.
It is true that charity begins at home. Charity could start within the neighborhoods of an individual. This signifies that in every family, the parents must teach their offspring to be compassionate towards the poor and the troubled. This will be successful if they themselves practice the noble act, showing a good example to their children because charity makes one glorious and pure at heart.
It is unquestionable that the segments from the rich have always become a factor that leads to the development in the state of living of the poor. Various big companies, charities trust and societies make huge contributions in areas of food supply, poverty-alleviation, education and health security. The richest men in the planet encourage their fellow billionaires all over the world to follow their advocacy to help the needy them. Their efforts would have a ripple effect whose benefits are being seen all over the world. But a present, a lot more needs to be done.
With charity achieving our visions and dreams is possible. It comes from love and because of it, we will be united and the persons who started it will be able to achieve great things. Charity is a trait which helps us to never fail and is undeniably the best positive trait we could desire for ourselves.
A person who is naturally kind and has the compassion from his early age towards the needy is normally found to help and make donations to the poor. He usually feels satisfied in giving alms or giving out relief to any one he considered in need without hesitation.
A charitable person genuinely loves and cares about his fellowmen and is always willing to help them whenever it is needed. He can sympathize and sensitive to the feelings of others. Painful scenes or depression bothers him and he tries everything he could to ease that misery. He is extremely enthused at the sight of beggars, or sufferers of natural calamities.
Charity is a good foundation for everything we do. It is necessary that all the things that we make or do should be rooted and inspired by love. There is a viewpoint that our life on earth is just a temporary period of an everlasting journey towards salvation. This short-lived phase, which we call life, has to be celebrated with a purpose and it is better to derive the true meaning of life from the joy of giving. We can realize our dreams and joy by giving to charity.
