Reciprocity in Life

وَإِذَا حُيِّيتُم بِتَحِيَّةٍ فَحَيُّوا بِأَحْسَنَ مِنْهَا أَوْ رُدُّوهَا ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ حَسِيبًا – 4:86

“And when you are greeted with a greeting, greet [in return] with one better than it or [at least] return it [in a like manner]. Indeed, Allah is ever, over all things, an Accountant.”

An obligation

But then again, it’s the thoughts that matter, not the actual monetary value of the gift.

In my case, I can buy any expensive stuff that I want, but I do appreciate the little gestures better. It’s the thoughts that matter guys.

It just mean that you , CARE. So, guys, remember to reciprocate (if possible, better than what you receive)

Hint: Doesn’t have to be only with respect with gift, but also in other aspect of life. Be it greetings, manners, etc.
