Rather than look for mistakes in others look at yourself

Standard

You ever met that person that gets way to excited or vexated when you do something wrong.  You think to yourself sit down and relax!

There are some people that God has blessed with the ability to connect with other people.  This is truly a God given gift, so why oh why would anyone be so quick to bring someone like this down.

As far as I’m concerned if you love your Lord and you can see that this person has the ability to connect with an abundance of people, then why not aid them to continue with what they do. 

Before I started blogging i hesitated as I thought what if I say something and it is wrong.  And of course its happened a couple of times, and to those who did correct me, I love you dearly.  Not only did you build my confidence to continue, but you gave me the correct knowledge so I was able to rectify what i’d previously did in error.

There is a hadith that states, ‘beware of slaughter houses’.  This statement always sends shivers down my spine because it is a reminder that we must be very careful who we take knowledge from, otherwise we’re like lambs being led for slaughter.

We are advised to take someone aside and correct them privatley.  There is so much wisdom in this.  However if the person does not take heed different action must be taken.

And finally practice what you preech.  It is hard to respect the opinion of someone who is quick to correct you but, however they do not take heed of this advice themselves.

‘Truly you do not belive until you love for your brother what you love for yourself’

I would not like to be corrected publicly so I make an effort not do it myself

She graduated with a BA Hons in Early Childhood Studies eager to do right by my son.

Her marriage dissolved due to domestic Violence in 2009 and she retook a different path learning how to rebuild my self esteem and confidence. This journey allowed Shalina to share her growth via blogs and vlogs building a large following around the topic of abuse. Around 2011 her career as a Radio Presenter at Unity FM began. As her confidence grew, she decided to speak out in international media defending the rights of Women and Hijab. This lead her to successfully be present in Media covering newspaper, TV, Radio and Magazines in addition to have been in a successful documentary done about 6 Muslim women from around the world by a TV Production Team (NRL) from the Netherlands. This public platform allowed her to be vocal about various heart felt topics through Social media and other broadcasting opportunities. As a result Shalina now coaches women around the topic of Abuse Resolution. She continues to appear in mainstream media discussing various topics around Islam and women.
