From the story of Yusuf (A.S)
He said, “O my son, do not relate your vision to your brothers or they will contrive against you a plan. Indeed satan, to man, is a manifest enemy. (12:5)
When good things happen to you, you don’t need to tell the whole world. some people may not be happy.
In the age of social media we lose happiness. We lose contentment. We lose sleep for many reasons; one of them is we show off even the food that we’re eating, when we’re about to eat it. We show off places that we haven’t even been to. We show off so much and we make people burn. What contentment are you going to get?
Two-way problem: we show off a life we don’t live and we get jealous of a life that others are not living. It’s fake. Learn to live the real life.
Don’t boast, don’t brag, don’t show off and don’t be deceived by the boasting and the bragging and the showing off of others. – Mufti Menk
