Thank in Action

As we relish our turkeys and cranberry sauce this Thanksgiving, let us also pledge to help the Typhoon Haiyan victims, Syrian refugees who are braving the upcoming harsh weather and millions of our poverty-stricken brethren.

Thanking God for all His blessings can be done through words and through actions, by living up to the potential that He has granted us all, and using that to help His creation out of misery. As an Ahmadi Muslim, I thank my God through words in my five daily prayers and also through actions such as donating blood, raising funds, assisting humanitarian organizations and doing whatever little charity I can, even if it’s just a smile.
