Islam is a beautiful religion that can makes everyone happy because of its values. In Islam, a Muslim has taught by religion to share anything to other especially to people in need as mentioned in Qur’an Surah Al-Hadid verse 7. It is said “Believe in Allah and His Messenger and spend out of that in which He has made you successors. For those who have believed among you and spent, there will be a great reward”. As beautiful as Islam that makes people happy, sharing happiness will also be a beautiful thing in any form.
