  1. Asalamu alaikum.. very interesting really. I know am suffering from these mentioned ,exspecially anger. My kids and husband are dear to me but watever they do got me angry. I feel like, i am just evil. I listen to lectures to change n be a good muslim but its hard. I am very harsh in speech and negative….

    I feel sad because Allah gave me so much that many are trying to get but here i am not knowing how manage it.
    Advise plz.

  2. I’ve been having issues with anger and how to practically deal with it. It’s true that when not channeled properly anger can bring about harm to yourself and the people around you. But, you have to understand, people come in different shapes and sizes – physically and emotionally. We all have different personalities and thus we deal with our emotions differently. While what you mention about anger and ways to deal with it are good, I feel the topic of anger needs to be made into a single article itself. these three general advise does not suffice for an emotion that, when not tamed, could lead to bad repercussions. Although I’m not pushing aside the hadith mentioned, because that I have not really implemented (as far as I can remember). As a sportsman, I am active and thus my way of releasing my anger is through aggression (but bearing in mind not to hurt others while playing the intended sport.) At the end of the day, I am just blabbering away. I am still finding practical and healthier ways to deal with anger…. jazakillah khayr for the article.

  3. Barakallahi fee my sis! I love you for the sake of Allah! I identified with ALL 4 sicknesses and Insha Allah, will take your advice in curbing them. May Allah bless you.

Insha’allah Allah The Rahman,The Raheem. blesses the Muslims, and forgive us our sins, heals our sick hearts.

  7. Assalamualaikum. Alhamdulillah, a very nice article I would say. It is the right time to read this article as now I am struggling with my inner self. Since a week ago, I became so passive, lost my confidence, a lot of negative thoughts came into my mind and I was really unproductive. I dont know why I felt so sad and had a feeling like, “Why I couldnt be happy, healthy and beautiful like others?’. I keep comparing myself with others until I forgot to be grateful to Allah SWT for eberything He has given to me and I keep feeling that I wasnt lucky enough like others. As a young adult who live alone in the city, far aways from my family, I do feel lonely. This loneliness led me to have such negative feelings. I never skip my salah, but I wasnt khoosyu’ in performing solah and even I cant focus in doing my daily jobs in the office. I dont know why I should be like this and I really missing my old me, the positive, cheerful and confident me back then. I dont even sure with my own feelings. I really wanna change my negativity to better. Please pray for me to fight against the whispering of syaitan, nafs and all the negativity in me right now.

    One thing for sure, this article does give me some positive thoughts that I need to change. May Allah bless you, author. Jazakillah khair. :)

  12. how to be successful ? in Islam
    “Whoever works righteousness — whether male or female — while he (or she) is a true believer (of Islamic Monotheism) verily, to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter).”

    [al-Nahl 16:97]
    “There is no good in most of their secret talks save (in) him who orders Sadaqah (charity in Allah’s Cause), or Ma‘roof (Islamic Monotheism and all the good and righteous deeds which Allah has ordained), or conciliation between mankind; and he who does this, seeking the good Pleasure of Allah, We shall give him a great reward.”

    [al-Nisa 4:114]
