Islamic Teachings for Becoming A Better Person

One of the things that every Muslim should try is to be a better person. Islam teaches a lot in this regard so here is some teaching of Islam which would help you to be a better person.

Have the will to change

Allah won’t change who you are unless you choose to. Because there is always a way when there is a will, you must be willing to adapt and put some serious thought and work into the idea.

Control your anger

Islam discourage to be angry because your anger will affect your capacity to make sensible decisions and you’ll start doing so. In addition to destroying relationships, anger is known to have a bad impact on one’s health. As a result, if you allow it to consume you, you won’t be able to better yourself. It might even encounter difficulties.

Thankful to Allah:

Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, thank Allah for the many benefits He bestows upon you every day and be grateful for what you do have. Additionally, express your gratitude and appreciation for the nice deeds’ individuals perform for you.

Be helpful

Islam emphasize on helping each other as it is one of the best ways to improve you is to help others. You will feel good about yourself and proud of your accomplishment when you assist someone in need. You’ll come to understand that what you do matters to other people and that you are enabling good deeds with your assistance.

Be honest

One of the most crucial qualities of a good person is honesty. Since you won’t be lying and will be clear, being honest will make you feel better about yourself and increase people’s faith in you. As a result, you’ll feel confident in all you say and do since you’ll be aware that there are no secrets and that everything is straightforward.

Forgive others

Islam gives the lesson of forgiveness so try to be forgiving to those who have wronged you. Try it; it could be challenging but it is unhealthy to bear a grudge, so if you don’t forgive them for whatever they did and keep that against them for the rest of your life, you’ll only be hurting yourself more. That would only have a bad impact on your body and mind.

Be kind

Islam encourages compassion for all beings. The Quran places a lot of stress on this trait. Allah commanded the Prophet s.a.w to emphasize among believers the everyday deeds of kindness. Being kind means being compassionate.

Be patient

In Qur’an, Allah the Most High said: “And be Patient.Surely, Allah is with those who are patient.” From this verse of Noble Qur’an, we can say that no matter what’s the situation we are going we should be faithful and patient as Allah is with us, He will never leave us alone.

Be truthful

Let there be no pressure in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold that never breaks. And Allah is great and know all things. There shall be no compulsion in the religion.
