  1. Masha Allah, sis Sana. You are a gifted writer and may Allah reward you abundantly. I always look forward to your write ups. I just said a dua for you, just say ameen.

  2. Thank you for a very valuable article MA sha Allah and I ask Allah swt to heal you and grant you health and happiness. All the best my dear sis

  3. An eye-opening and humbling post subhaanAllah, jazaakillahu khair for the wise words. Allah gave us all the ability to accept and do amal Aameen!

  4. As salaamu alaikum,
    This is a good article, ma shaa Allah. One thing I can say about not acting on the advice is two different “viewpoints” of different people. For example some people may say “Work hard, work hard, work hard”, but you know that work is not the only thing, Aakhirah is also important. In other words the person giving advice may not be aware of some knowledge from the Qur’an for example which may make his advice slightly not relevant to us because we have that knowledge.
    But I take your point. Even with differing viewpoints if the person giving advice intention is good, there has to be something to learn from it.
    Jazakallah khayr

  5. Allah shefak!! May Allah give you good health and bless you and your family. Ameen. Thank you for this beneficial article. It’s really interesting and written in a nice way, masha’Allah.

  6. Salamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuho Sister.

    Thank you for your advice to accept advices. Really, good advices are meant to build and up grade us rather than breaking and degrading us.

    May Allah,The Almighty,bless you and your family in your lives. Ameen!

  7. When I had my first baby I received constantly advices -from other “new” mothers as well as from olders…I always forced myself to listen carefully, think about it, and if it makes sense-implement the advice, and if not-just skipped it. This is because I witnessed situations where older parents were giving advices to younger parents and were offended by their reaction, so the least you can do when anyone is giving you any kind of advice is to listen, so you show respect to person giving you advice.

  8. Assalamalaikum warahmatullahi wabarkatuh

  13. My heart always prays for you, after reading these articles,
    you’re doing a great great job, Allah will reward you.
    Life changing articles. GBU!

  14. Assalmu alaikum sister

    Such brilliant advice that everyone should implement insha Allah. Much of what you say resonates with me and makes me realise how akin we are to having such reactions. But as you beautifully described it wisdom can come from any direction and we should accept it whole heartedly if we intend to grow closer to Allah SWT.

    JazaakAllah khair for a great post! May the Almighty grant you shifaa and goodness in this life and the next insha Allah. Ameen.

  15. Assalaam alaikum wa rehmatullahi wa barakaatahu sis jazakallahu khairan kaseera sis ur article has made me realised something which i needed the most rite now its something Allah SWT has sent for me thru u

  16. Jazakillah sister. What a lovely advice MashAllah. May Allah bless you.

    One of the greatest dilemma of these days is discussed so beautifully in this article. One advice I would like to give readers is bookmark or save this article and come back and reread it and gradually absorb the goodness of it. Prayers for all.

  17. Nowadays when u speak the truth or give sound advice, the youngsters either make fun of you or cut you short as u mentioned.
    Very few people will appreciate.
    My motto is: If you are a sincere follower of your Deen, it is your duty to speak up or advice when something against Islam cropped up regardless of whether people like it or not. U will be discharging your responsibilities as followers of our beloved prophet.

  18. Beneficial and timely reminder. Yes, indeed in every advice or even criticism given whether in a consrructive or detrimental way there is a grain of truth. As Muslims our role is instead of reacting heatedly, to find that truth which will make us better Muslims. Jazaakumullaah Khair for your useful articles.

  19. As salam alaykum, Sis. Sana –
    That’s actually a very nice & inspiring article. But my question is ; what if the person giving you advice is someone younger than you?
    (or correcting you or telling you that you’re wrong)
    Personally, i don’t listen to such a person cos I believe am older & more experienced than him/her.
    So, what should I do?

  20. Assalam alai kum sis Aisha,

    i totally understand what you mean, been in that situation myself.

    Once i was making pancakes for my kids and some how they were sticking to the pan.
    My almost 9 year old daughter, told me to grease the pan , but i didn’t listen to her, thinking how would she know, right?
    finally after some attempts, i picked up the packet to see the instructions and it said , GREASE the pan !!

    i shook my head and called my daughter over and gave her a hug,
    She said , she remembered how i did it last time .

    See:)? some times they really know more than us.

    So, now a days, as i am growing older , i think the younger generation is smarter than what we were in that age.
    so , we need to relax and listen to what they say with an open mind. They really could be right after all!
    It takes practice , and it cannot happen over night.
    So relax and try.
    Remember– what you have to do is –Listen to the words and Process them in your mind. The Speaker is not that important.
    It is the words or the context of the advice that is

  21. AssalamuAlaikum Sr Sana, Mashallah, it’s hard to describe this piece of work, it’s really wonderful and seriously a big help. I really thank you so much for your support in sharing us your tips. And Ameen may Allah answers your dua. J.A.K.

  22. JazakAllahu Khayran sister for this wonderful post. Sometimes when people advice me, I take the advice to be beneficial at that moment but after that I usually forget about the advice and end up missing on opportunities and consequently regretting afterwards. I think my case fall into the Lazy part.
