Touched by generosity

Sometimes someone can says something really small, and it just fits right into the empty place in your heart. Media has saturated the world’s views through the use of hideous Arab Muslim characters. I have been fortunate enough to know Arab people without the influence of media on their image. If I had to choose one word to describe them, I would say it is ‘generosity’.
These people personify generosity in every way you can imagine. Not only by unhesitatingly letting go of materialistic objects, but in the eloquence of their utterances. Not only to humans, but animals too! If you think I say ‘InshAllah’ a lot, then think again. They utter the name of God in almost every sentence. During a conversation, they will shower you with so many blessings that even the most lonely person will feel a part of them. The slightest compliment can make them cry. These people have such a large heart (also evident in their deep-rooted attachment to their closely knit families) that you cannot not be inspired by them.  You know, language reveals a lot about culture.
Think about it this way: The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own (-Benjamin Disraeli).
