“A little and a little, collected together, becomes a great deal; the heap in the barn consists of single grains, and drop and drop makes an inundation.” – Arabic proverb
Do what good you can in this life and don’t worry that it’s too little, or that it won’t change things, or that you do not see immediate results. Your contribution matters. The ripples spread outward, even unseen, so that your presence on earth eventually affects everyone else in the world.
Or, if you don’t put stock in proverbs, then remember the words of Allah in Surat Az-Zalzalah:
“Then shall anyone who has done an atom’s weight of good, see it! And anyone who has done an atom’s weight of evil, shall see it.” (Quran 99:7-8).
Never listen to those who say that it’s pointless to try, or that the good work you are doing is hopeless. The tiniest bit of good you do, matters. An atom’s weight of effort makes a difference! It changes things, whether you see it or not.
