Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)
We all go through different stages of like as we grow older and eventually we change as well.
As a child my super hero and role models were my parents. In teen years my role models change to TV and movie celebs, yet I never was satisfied.
Now I realized why I never used to be satisfied, because in Islam there is no place for such role models. Celebrities and models take us very far from our deen Astagfirrullah (May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) forgive me).
Our role models should be none other than Muhammed (SAW) (صلى الله عليه وسلم ), his wives, and his Companions!
Many of us are struggling with relationship, with our parents, spouses, children, & siblings on daily basis. I used to get angry really fast but Alhumdulillah ( الحمد لله) by doing hijab and researching and teaching myself Islam, I realized the importance of each relationship.
It’s so easy to get upset and judge each other, so let’s help each other, (I do need your help!) whenever we are in sticky situation and before drawing a judgment call, yelling, and/or cussing, imagine what our role models (in my case Muhammed (SAW) (صلى الله عليه وسلم )) would have done!
Please make dua for me that I am able to handle the situation(s) more appropriately and maturely. Aameen.
