The actions and choices we make each day impact our future. Kindness, good character, healthy relationships with family and neighbors increases our life span.

The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

Verily, whoever has been given the quality of kindness has been given his portion of good in this life and in the Hereafter. Maintaining family ties, good character, and good treatment of neighbors will build their heavenly abodes and increase their life spans (Ahmad).

These elements bless the quantity and quality of our life. Kindness and good character allow us to love and be loved and remove tension and stress from relationships.
