Don’t be concerned about what the people may say or think

A wise person said,

“People are oblivious of you and me, and are busily striving for their bread. And if one of them is thirsty, he will forget my death and yours.”
[La tahzanu (Don’t be sad) by A’aid al Qarni]

Lesson: The is indeed a very true statement. Many people constantly worry about what others might think or what others may say, which leaves them in an almost perpetual state of worry and concern which is not healthy for a believer. Muslims should only be concerned about what Allah thinks of them and about how Allah views them. Our concern should only be Allah, and about observing the commandments of Allah and following the sunnah of the Prophet(saw). By adopting this attitude inshaAllah He(swt) Himself will make us appear honorable before the people, without us having even sought it.
