Kindness to neighbors is highly encouraged by all religions but Islam gives greater importance to how we should deal with our neighbors.The Quran makes it clear that neighbors are entitled to kindness, whether they are related to us or not.

Another Ramadan is coming up Insha'Allah. This time, let’s try out some novel ways of maximizing our rewards. Here are five ideas I plan to adopt this Ramadan. Give them a try and share your experience with us!
I learned that God is not floating on a cloud far from our problems. But He is near. Even though He is above His throne, He is closer to us than even our own jugular vein for He knows what is in our very hearts. My image of God matured as my faith did.
These are powerful images that provide a serious atmosphere for what comes next. Doomed are the people referred to as the "people of the ditch." The people of the ditch (sometimes translated as trench) were the agents of a tyrannical King who refused to allow his people to believe in God.
In submitting to God through Islam, I am simply saying "I want my whole life to reflect His will. I want to worship Him with my whole being 24 hours a day. I want to show the world, that saying I am worshipping God, isn’t about having a belief that someone else has paid the penalty for my sin...

What is this power? What is this strange energy that we have just received? It’s unexplainable. The non-Muslims question this all the time “How do you do it?” We say to them “Man, look, this is something got to do with the faith”
I had read about iftars, and because this was my first Ramadan, I had adopted a feeling about it the way most westerners consider any other holiday – in total anticipation! Masha'Allah, that is another reason why I had been awake the whole night before...
I was lucky enough to personally meet non-Muslim Japanese who are fasting for the whole holy month, just like a Muslim would do. This actually leaves my mouth wide open and keeps me thinking.
The month of Ramadan is the month of kindness, charity and generosity. Plan to invite your neighbors, co-workers, friends, Muslims and non-Muslims to have Iftar meal with you. Let your non-Muslims friends and neighbors know about this month and its blessings.
