How do you prevent the success of people that you see on social media from affecting you and making you depressed and jealous?

00:00:11--> 00:00:48

One of the negative things about things like Instagram is that people always show only their positive sides. So someone gets a brand new car, they'll show it, someone gets married, they'll show it. But people don't share their real lives. So for example, when they're going through hardships, no one's recording that when someone's getting divorced, no one's showing that when someone's having difficulty getting a job, no one's showing that. So it's important to realize is that it is all just a gimmick, people will only show their positive sides, so you're not actually getting a true image of what their life is like. Number two, is always remembering that having more does not always mean

00:00:48--> 00:01:26

it is better. And if you look at the example of soda use of at the beginning of the surah, Yusuf Ali Salaam had more love from his father. And what did that lead to his brothers got jealous, and they tried to kill him. And then they eventually threw him into a well, later on in the story, usefully. Salaam has more beauty than other men. And what happens? The wife of Aziz tries to seduce him, he refuses, and he's thrown into prison. So having more actually leads to more accountability. So one should not presume that having more will bring about more happiness, but rather learn to be content with what you have. Number three, thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala in all circumstances and

00:01:26--> 00:02:05

situations. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says How amazing is the affair of the believer, when he's tested, he says it hamdulillah and he is patient. And when they are given more, they thank Allah subhanho wa Taala and they are grateful. So one should always be content with what Allah subhanho wa Taala has given and last but not least, keep striving for what Allah subhana wa Taala has prepared for the believers in the hereafter that which no eyes have seen, no ears have heard and no mind has been able to comprehend. And that is what Allah Spanos prepared for us. So when you see someone successful on the internet, on Instagram or on social media, make dua for them that Allah

00:02:05--> 00:02:22

blesses them and thank Allah subhanaw taala for what he has given you. And at the end of the day, as long as you get to gender, that is the most important thing and Allah subhanaw taala gnosis subscribe to this channel, share this video and click on the bell icon so that you can be notified with every new video at faith.
