The world has become such a bad place to live in. It’s actually pathetic.
We all try to be better infront of the next person.
We compete with each other by wearing ‘branded name clothing’ , by ‘taking selfies that are more on fleek than the next person’s’ , ‘making ourselves stand out’.
We are so unhappy because we can’t do one thing, without crtiscism from the next person.
And that criticism affects us to the core..so we tell ourselves, I will show off something to her that she wouldn’t know what to say.
What happened to those days when we’d dress in clothing that we felt comfortable in and not in clothes that are not really our kind…
What an insincere Ummah we have become!
We do things to please everyone else but we have forgotten that our own happiness is far important than that.
Let me dress better than her.
Let me bake better than her.
Let me do better than her in every way possible.
What is this?
And the cost of living isn’t cheap anymore. So we intend filling our closets with clothing we’ll wear a maximum of 3 or 5 times just for the sake of being better than the next person.
This is the pits.
And then we complain.
And we become depressed .
But we have dug our own graves.
We have tried to be better than the next person in every way possible.
We have no originality.
We lack creativity.
May Allah grant us humility. May Allah remove pride, hatred, jealousy, hypocrisy, and all evils from our hearts.
Allah is with you always ♡
