Live out this so that you can be as Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, has commanded you to be, ‘. . . compassionate to each other, . . .’ (48:29) show kindness to each other and feel sad for their absence from you. You should be just as the group of Ansar (the supporters) was in the lifetime of the Messenger of Allah (a.s.) as mentioned in (48:29).’”
