Advice on Interactions with Others

helpinghands-300x219

It is reported that ‘Umar b. Al-Khattab May Allah be pleased with him – said:

Whoever exposes himself to suspicion, let him blame only himself for whoever suspects him.

He who covers his secret is in a position to choose [to correct himself].

Assume the best about your brother until what comes to you from him overcomes you [and you have to change your opinion].

10 Choices You Will Regret

ten-choicess
“If only…” These two words paired together create one of the saddest phrases in the English language.

Here are ten choices that ultimately lead to this phrase of regret, and how to elude them:

1.  Wearing a mask to impress others. – If the face you always show the world is a mask, someday there will be nothing beneath it.  Because when you spend too much time concentrating on everyone else’s perception of you, or who everyone else wants you to be, you eventually forget who you really are.  So don’t fear the judgments of others; you know in your heart who you are and what’s true to you.  You don’t have to be perfect to impress and inspire people.  Let them be impressed and inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.

2. Letting someone else create your dreams for you. – The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are; the second greatest is being happy with what you find.  A big part of this is your decision to stay true toyour own goals and dreams.  Do you have people who disagree with you?  Good.  It means you’re standing your ground and walking your own path.  Sometimes you’ll do things considered crazy by others, but when you catch yourself excitedly losing track of time, that’s when you’ll know you’re doing the right thing.  Read The 4-Hour Workweek.

3. Keeping negative company. – Don’t let someone who has a bad attitude give it to you.  Don’t let them get to you.  They can’t pull the trigger if you don’t hand them the gun.  When you remember that keeping the company of negative people is a choice, instead of an obligation, you free yourself to keep the company of compassion instead of anger, generosity instead of greed, and patience instead of anxiety.

4. Being selfish and egotistical. – A life filled with loving deeds and good character is the best tombstone.  Those who you inspired and shared your love with will remember how you made them feel long after your time has expired.  So carve your name on hearts, not stone.  What you have done for yourself alone dies with you; what you have done for others and the world remains.

The Evil Twins : Jealousy & Envy (Video)

info-pictogram1 Jealousy and envy is basically when you see someone has something and you want it for yourself. Islamically, there is a concept known as hasad. Hasad is similar to jealousy and envy, expect in hasad, you not only want what they have, but you also want that they don’t have it.

For example, let’s say you know someone who has more friends than you on Facebook or more followers on twitter. Hasad is you wanting more followers and friends than they have and that they have less. Thus, whatever they have and they’ve been blessed with be taken away from them.

It’s normal for people to feel jealous or envious of others when you see they’ve been blessed with certain things. The best possible tip I have for you, whenever you’re feeling jealous or envious make a very simple du’a (supplication/prayer to Allah).

That du’a is, “Allahumma zid wa barik”

You’re saying, “O Allah, increase them in what you’ve given them and put blessings in it.”

What to Do When You Feel Lonely

lo

Last month I met a guy who was sitting on a park bench with an empty look on his face. I sat beside him and started chatting with him.  In the middle of the conversation he suddenly asked me “Brother, is there anything I can do to cure my loneliness” At that moment I was unable to answer him, but his question made me consider that most of us have this struggle in our daily lives and we are also looking out for some ideas to beat up that feeling.

Everybody has to accept this ugly truth that loneliness is an unavoidable part of human emotions, but it’s up to us to make up our mind how much room we give that emotion to dominate our lives. We can let it play a bossy role in our life or we can take a stand against it.

Effects of loneliness

In fact loneliness is a state of mind; as a result it can dramatically bring about many psychological and physical damages.

  1. Loneliness can cause us to forget the meaning and purpose of life by making us feel empty from the inside.
  2. It can also fill us with harmful habits, such as smoking, alcoholism, eating junk food, spending more time watching TV, staying up all night online etc.
  3. Sometimes loneliness instigates a mental state called “Social Anxiety Disorder”, commonly known as “Social Phobia”. It’s an intense fear of possibly being humiliated or embarrassed in social situations.
  4. Long-term exposure to loneliness can also lead to difficulties in attention, learning and memory. As this emotion develops our life will undergo lots of negative changes.
  5. Loneliness can spoil both quality and quantity of your sleep; those who are lonely tend to wake up more during the night and spend less amount of time in bed actually sleeping.

When we recognize what loneliness does to our brain, body and behavior, we can more easily give it less control over our lives.

What are some productive things to do when you feel lonely?

Keep a hobby: Everybody should have a hobby. Having a hobby helps us enhance our well-being and it can also give us an interesting personality by helping us to connect with like-minded people and stay social.

Talking to someone: Sometimes talking to someone you trust and love is the most efficient way feel less lonely. It can also help you work out why you experience loneliness. If you don’t have anyone you can talk to, you can always talk to friends and family via your mobile phone.

ReadingIt’s apparent that reading can serve more than one useful purpose at the same time. It’s one of the best productive way to spend your time. As Dr. Robert P. Friedland said. ” In the same way that physical actions strengthens the heart, muscles and bones; intellectual activities fortify the mind against disease.
