    Independence

    Report bad ads?

    Assalamualaikum

    I enjoy performing things in front of people such as poetry as I get quite a lot of satisfaction from speaking to a crowd. However it is recommended to be independent from people does this mean this is something to refrain from?

    I have waswas al qahri it comes often and I get anxious about these things. I don’t think saying weird insults is helping

    does it give you a good feeling to pick on people safely behind your computer...do you feel like a big shot right now?
    we might not all be as intelligent as you are...but that still does not give you the right to bully people...
    Do you even think before you type ? Actually, do you think at all ?

    Re: Independence

    I think there is subtle difference here.

    1. You do something which benefit people, be it halal products, entertainment, education, whatever. You need feedback to know if you do well and what to improve.

    2. You want people to praise you, to feel yourself in the middle of attention.

    Re: Independence

    If it's to speak to boost your ego or to show off skills etc it's sin; it's riya, the lesser shirk

    Why not talk about Islam in front of crowd with intention of dawah? Then you'll be rewarded

    You should turn your skill of public speaking from bad to good by changing content and intention

    *perhaps you mean from bad to good.

    But on the other hand it may be necessary to show off skills to be trusted with what you want to do. And even to gain skill of showing off.
    I am often being in such a situation, when proposing some good project, but people with resources to implement it would never even consider it.

    Yes thanks, it's meant to be from bad to good.

    What you said fits the secular non religious sort of advice that a teacher of a western comprehensive school might give, but I'm sure the brother is after Islamic advice and the Islamic perspective and it is as I said

    And I also am very interested in Islamic perspective. How to avoid showing off but get trusted to do with what you are able to do.
