  • life's a learning curve, doesn't discriminate when it comes to age

    hey so theres one thing I've learned recently in life and is that some people are happy for you, up until you reach their level or exceed them, especially when it comes to wordly things and materials

    Its kinda sad, what happened to being happy for others?

    Like some people enjoy it when someone is struck with calamities

    Like for example when i see someone who's just had an accident,
    I swear to Allah and Allah knows what's in my heart as I'm just generally talking and not trying to show off but I swear by Allah it breaks my heart and I feel for them as it's never nice to go through that experience as I've been through it myself

    Now even if I've been through the same experience personally or not, I wouldn't wish it upon others, why do peeps wish bad upon others or even get happy when something?

    Is it just the rat race of this dunya?

    Competition over how big your tv is, or what number plate your car is, or how many bricks your house has compared to someone else?

    I don't think this is just a muslim problem I think this is a problem with which humanity is suffering

                Dear brother, you are not so totally wrong.
                Happiness without a proper spiritual life does not exist, but with Islam there is a lot of room for happiness in this dunya life to.

                Noor and dhulumat must not not be the same.

                You should race in goodness, altruism, in noor way.

                Start enjoying the right path!

                    It's there somewhere for most people, I think, deep inside where we might not even realise. Doesn't even have to be material things, does it? Could be knowledge, reputation, all sorts of things... The achievements of our children, etc, etc... Even if it's a fleeting feeling. We just make du'aa for barakah in it for them as soon as we experience any tiny little bit (and even when we don't).

                    Not spending too much time with people who are boastful etc, should help as well, you'd think.
                    ​​Your du'aa... Always dear, always needed (Jazaa'akumullah Khair.)

                          So I guess this is a pre-approval for a non-Muslims to replay.

                          I agree this is a problem in which all humanity is affected.

                          You start at university. In the same class with the same major is an acquaintance of yours from school days past. He is dorky and awkward and his grades were mediocre. You become friends at university and feel as you are helping him adapt and improve. 3 years later he has better grades and is more popular than you. On graduation he gets a higher paying job in a more prestigious position than you.

                          I realize I don't like him anymore. Yet in my heart I feel I should be happy for my childhood friend. The difference comes down to what Muslims call 'Iman'. In my opinion.

                            I just don't get how others get happy due to someone else going through calamities though, it's kinda crazy as to me that's pure evil, I mean why wish Ill on others?

                              I don't believe it's just an issue with faith (Iman),
                              as I feel it's more of an ego/pride thing too,
                              of course could be jealousy and envy even without realizing it tbf
