Allah has ordained kindness on everything.

Love someone who doesn't deserve it.
Blessed is he who speaks a kindness;
Thrice blessed is he who repeats it.
The greatest goal of Islam is to extend kindness to self and kindness to the creatures. It is this goal that determines the position of one before Allah in this world and the Hereafter. It is also this kindness that determines man’s position among his fellow human beings. All obligatory and forbidden things are based on this kindness. Allah has made it obligatory in all His legislations.

The Messenger of Allah said, “Allah has ordained kindness on everything. When you kill (an animal) kill (it) kindly and when you slaughter (an animal), slaughter (it) kindly. Let anyone of you sharpen his knife and let him give rest to his slaughtered animal.”

The Prophet’s statement, “Allah ordained kindness on everything” have two meanings:

One: That Allah has ordained perfection on every obligatory duty and that a Muslim should do it in the best perfect form; that he should Endeavour to do as much supererogatory aspects of it as he can and that he should refrain from all aspects of forbidden things. Allah says,

“Leave (O mankind, all kinds of) sin, open and secret.”

(Al-Anaam 6:120)
 This nice story was sent to me don't know the source still read it (NICE)
Nasiruddin was the slave of a king, and very fond of hunting. One day he came across a very pretty baby deer and picked it up and rode away. The mother deer saw Nasiruddin take her baby and followed him anxiously. Nasiruddin, pleased with the baby dear, was thinking about presenting it to his children to play with. After a time, he chanced to look back and saw the mother deer following him, her expression full of grief. He noticed too that she did not seem to care about her own safety. Moved to pity, Nasiruddin set the baby deer free. The mother deer nuzzled and licked her baby fondly and the two deer leapt happily away into the forest. But many times the mother deer looked back at Nasiruddin, as if to express her thanks.

That night Nasiruddin dreamt that the revered Prophet (pbuh) was addressing him:
‘Nasiruddin, your name has been entered in the list of Allah, and you will one day have a kingdom. But remember that when you are king you will also have many responsibilities. Just as you have shown mercy to the deer today, you should be merciful to all Allah’s creatures. You should not forget your people by falling into a life of luxury.’

This dream came true and Nasiruddin did become king, Amir Nasiruddin, father of Sultan Muhammad.

The moral of the story is that if we wish Allah to be merciful to us, we must be eager to show mercy to all the living creatures of the earth.

When a flower blooms, its colour and scent first touch the garden near it, and then spread. In the same way, a Muslim’s acts of human kindness should first touch those nearest to him, his family and his neighbors.

Every one is commanded to be kind to all creatures. Allah gives an absolute and general command about kindness when He says,

“And do well. Truly, Allah loves the good-doers.”

(Al-Baqarah 2:195)

He also says,

“Indeed, Allah orders and good conduct.”

(An-Nahl 16:90)

Allah also ordains kindness in a specified and detailed form. He ordains that the parents, the relatives, the neighbors, the poor, the weak, the distressed, the orphans and others should all be treated with kindness. Being kind to the creatures entails being generous to them and refraining from harming them. The most comprehensive verse on kindness in the Qur’an is the word of Allah that says,

“Worship Allah and join none with Him in worship; and do good to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, the poor, the neighbour who is near of kin, the neighbour who is a stranger, the companion by your side, the wayfarer (you meet), and those (slaves) whom your right hands possess. Verily, Allah does not like such as are proud and boastful.”

(An-Nisa 4:36)

Prophet (pbuh)
"Kindness is a mark of faith, and whoever is not kind has no faith." (Muslim)

Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you - not because they are nice, but because you are.

May Allah make our efforts sincere and keep us all on the straight path...........
