Don’t Hate Bad People, Hate The Bad In People – Thinkworthy

Bismillah Hir Rahman Ir Raheem

Peace and blessings be upon you all

I recently sent my work to Thinkworthy Magazine as a guest post.

Thinkworthy is a personal and social wellness blog where we talk about things that matter and aim to provide a platform for people who have something to say but don’t know where to put it.

You can check out their website and Facebook page.

The guest post I sent is titled “Don’t hate bad people, hate the bad in people” because I think we are all a culmination of each and every single of our deeds and I believe all these deeds make a person, not just one overly-highlighted deed where the other deeds are giving importance. So if you want to hate something, hate the deed, not the person.

Your thoughts?

A lot of these actions could be intentional in order to achieve one’s personal desires and they could be simply uncontrolled slips of the tongue, hands or limbs; but they happen so we’re exceptions, right? The good people? However, the question is, how do we determine if others are bad or not? Or perhaps an even more important question, how do we determine if we’re bad people or not?

This lesson is one of the many lessons that sounds simple but has a very deep meaning and can have extensive application. Naturally we, myself included, will always be tempted to get bias and judgmental towards people. The action that one does is like the first impression that can affect the whole view we hold against that person. It’s not easy to avoid. However, it’s doable. Good stuff.

True, such judgements and biases will always be in one’s mind; they exist in my mind as well. It is our constant mind battle we have to engage in everyday so that no one is treated unfairly. It’s definitely doable. Thank you for reading it! 😀

Your writing techniques really engage the reader, mashaAllah. I love how you chose such a topic at a time when manners are something overlooked or not given its due. We must always give 70 excuses subhanAllah and we should always think good (husn adh’an) of our brother/sister. Thank you for touching on that topic and may Allah increase us in seeking His pleasure and attaining ihsaan. Ameen

True, that is why we are told to forgive and to give excuses for people. We should try to see the good in people if at all possible.

So true, coming from a not so religious family I know one of the biggest thing that my family hated/hates about “religious practicing people” is how they shame people for their bad deeds. Unfortunately, it is true in many cases.
