[Islam] Islam and Ego by Nouman Ali Khan

Mashallah, this is exactly what I’m looking for. The basic of applying value of Islam in personal life. I believe, this is also what Rasulullah Salallahu ‘Alaihi Wassalam taught us Muslim/ah. Put aside ego. Religion or faith is something personal, very private, between you and Allah. It’s the habluminallah. But then again, as Muslim we have this duty toward another human beings (habluminannas) to remind them of Allah.

I actually concur with his saying about, we do our best effort and let the result in Allah’s hands. The key of heart is in Allah’s hands. We do our duty for the sake of Allah, and that’s it. Leave the rest to Allah.

Oh, and one more thing, in the question-answer session, I like the way the ustadz treated the Muslima sister. He didn’t stare at her, but listening to her question in respect. Yes, that’s how Islam treat a woman. And the answer of her question was just beautiful. Ah… well, you can check out yourself. 😉

When there’s somebody say something hurtful to you, just keep your distance in respectful way. We don’t cut relations (silaturahim) in Islam, but we may keep our distance with people who hurt us without actually say that to them. It’s a silent kind of advice.

Wow.. that’s, really, new for me. You seriously need amazing self control about this. It’s a challenge, so yes, I MUST master my ego. 😉 Don’t you want the same too, readers?

    Defense mechanisms help ego to cope with anxiety. Don’t let anyone depend on u emotionally. It’s a responsibility not everyone can deal with it.
