Abdul Sattar Edhi

Humanitarian and activist -- via NPR. He helped orphans, abused women, the mentally ill, the sick, the old, the poor, and the dead. A saint, a holy man.

“Appearance is a distraction, surrendering it develops truth and humility in abundance.”

“The Holy Book should open in your souls, not on your laps. Open your heart and see God’s people. In their plight you will find Him.”

“Chasing after desires creates inner turmoil. When the devil becomes guide, dacoits and gangsters are manufactured. He makes men fight against their souls to survive expensive items and most lose everything in the face of his strength. The internal enemy can only be overcome by a personal revolution.”

 “Empty words and long praises do not impress God. Show Him your faith by your deeds.”

“My religion is humanitarianism, which is the basis of every religion in the world.”
