:salamext:
Be grateful to Allah (swt) for all that he has blessed you with. Do not listen to the evil wispers of satan who wants to make you an ungrateful servant. Think of everything that Allah has blessed you with and say Alhamdulilah!

وَلِسَانًا وَشَفَتَيْنِ

090.008 Have We not made for him a pair of eyes?-

وَهَدَيْنَاهُ النَّجْدَيْنِ

090.009 And a tongue, and a pair of lips?-


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُلُواْ مِن طَيِّبَاتِ مَا رَزَقْنَاكُمْ وَاشْكُرُواْ لِلّهِ إِن كُنتُمْ إِيَّاهُ تَعْبُدُونَ


002.172 O ye who believe! Eat of the good things that We have provided for you, and be grateful to Allah, if it is Him ye worship.

وَلَقَدْ مَكَّنَّاكُمْ فِي الأَرْضِ وَجَعَلْنَا لَكُمْ فِيهَا مَعَايِشَ قَلِيلاً مَّا تَشْكُرُونَ

[7.10] And certainly We have established you in the earth and made in it means of livelihood for you; little it is that you give thanks.

وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَنشَأَ لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَالْأَبْصَارَ وَالْأَفْئِدَةَ قَلِيلًا مَّا تَشْكُرُونَ

023.078 It is He Who has created for you (the faculties of) hearing, sight, feeling and understanding: little thanks it is ye give!

:) May allah (swt) pardon us for complaining.

I know it sounds harsh, but you'll never be anyone else, so you'd best learn to live with who you are. It can always be worse.

Oh please sister, don't worry about being short, i'm short too and I'm loving it because I'm afraid of heights, lol. Short people are just as good as tall people. Take it from a shorty like me. :statisfie

btw, the thing about being afraid of heights is a joke lol, I love being short because it doesn't stop me from doing anything that I want or need to do, except when I can't reach the coathanger, but thats another story. :)

Sack everyone be happy of what you are and how you are. Allah subhnwatallah made you so be proud. So what if others think your short who gives a toss! Am short meself and proud. Okay if your teeth are bad say sticking out allah hu alim. then why not go to the dentist so inshallah they can do something to get them better. About skinny your NOT the only one. Enough people want to be skinny or want to be fat but if your features are way important then all i can say to you is GANGSTA!
Get a grip and forget about what others think they have no right to judge you anyway so tell them to back off!

We all have moments of self-doubt... but it is true, no one out there is like you, has your soul, your spirit, your heart, your eyes.. Amazing, when they transplant and organ from one person to another and even after extensive matching on HLA DR DQ DP and all their subtypes, the patient still has to go on extensive immunosuppressive therapy just not to react to another's organ.
Do you not think it is special, that even your close siblings aren't exactly like you?
I am not going to tell you to be thankful or grateful, though I very well think you should be. Perhaps in due time, you'll come to appreciate that others are born with phocomelia when you have your full limbs, while others are born with cleft palate while your philtrum is in tact, while others are born with Alopecia areata or even universals , while you have a full head of hair, that some are born cyclops while you have two beautiful set of eyes...perhaps one day you'll appreciate the sun drunken color over having been an albino yes, perhaps one day, you'll walk to the mirror and say.. sobhan Alwahab Al'3theem.. what gifts he has given me... Maybe one day you'll mutter.. "Alhmdlilah Alzhi 3afana mima ibtla beh ghyrona wa fadhlana 3la katheeran mima khalq tafdeela"... and perhaps that day you'll also come to realize that when one thanks one is given more.. Perhaps one day you won't look at the images on TV but the ones of the people around you and realize how so very blessed you are.. Maybe right now you can walk to the mirror and just smile and be good to yourself...

Be grateful brother, don't let the Shaytan mess with your head. If your weakness is insecurity, then the Shaytan will use it against you to the fullest. Pray to Allah (swt) & Insa'allah he will send down on you peace & tranquillity & clean your head from these negative thoughts.

please dont worry. it is the media driven society which makes us dislike ourselves. my dear sister do not worry and be greteful for what Allah has given u . My parents always said dont look at others and feel u should be like them. always looks at people below u. be grateful to allah tala. i have been in the same the situation where i have obessed the way i look and always compared myself to others. Remember that u r an individual , ther is no-one like u in this dunya and universe who looks like u . u r unique and u must try to accept who u r.i know its easier said than done. i sometimes still get a little insecure, but i try to remember that what allah has given me is enough alhamdulliah.

First of all, just wanna c no1 is ugly, god creation is not ugly.We all r beautiful, some more than others.

And when u say being beautiful will make ur life easy it wont. the trials and tribulations they go through, u wouldn't want them. So be grateful, thankful for how u look, u can see, hear, what more do you want.Beauty don't last.

Most people feel the way you do but the thing is not let it get you down.

I look in the mirror some days and i wish my nose waz taller my eyes more wide my skin more fair.
Its just natural to think like that.:D

On the other hand somedays i look in the mirror and think hey you could give miss world a run for her money lol

Just accept the way you are.There isnt much you can do.Try being happy in your skin if that dont work try looking at someone who you consider less attractive then yourself and just tell your self at least your better then them.Dont tell them anything though that would be wrong.

Just remeber that there will always be someone better then you and you just cant do anything about it.

JUST ACCEPT WHAT YOU HAVE/WHAT YOU ARE

Salaam sister always be grateful for everything and i mean EVERYTHING you have (even if its not a lot or not what you want) and always remember that there are others out there that are far worse off then you, e.g. people who are blind, deaf, etc. People who live in poverty or in war zones, are facing much more worse situations than us, ALWAYS THINK OF OTHERS, and the struggles that they may be facing on a daily bases.

The more you Thank Allah the more He gives you. There is nothing wrong wiv being short, im short too, and to be honest, there’s no point in complaining about it coz you cant do anything about it. However if your weight is really getting you down try doing something about it; why not eat healthier and be more active, you can also join a gym, play sports, walk more often etc. Its not impossible you just need to work hard and put effort into it and inshAllah it will be achievable.

also check this nasheed out, it may make you feel better and be more appreciative of what you have that others may not.

Salaama Alaykum,

I feel the same way sometimes as well! But you have to remember that there are people in the world in far worse shape than you.

Fee Aman Allah..just know that in any given minute, all that is Dunya could be taken away from you. Don't fret about the minuscule things that don't matter when Akhriya comes along. Have peace of mind and be level-headed and always have Allah(SWT) on your mind. It shows strong deen, and will only lead to good things. Everyone has low self-esteem sometimes, and it's only human nature, but just trust in Allah(SWT) and remember him always. :D

W/Salaam

^ What Sister-Ameena* said is true ---> "just trust in Allaah(SWT)"

We may not see Allaah (SWT)'s wisdom at first glance...but there's wisdom with all that Allaah (SWT) does...and it's just a matter of trust in Allaah. Sure you may feel bad and may find it hard...but just have patience and put your trust in Allaah.

Us Muslims are not living for the Dunya....it's all for the Aakhirah. :)

i do understand what you're going through but what can you actually do?

NOTHING

just accept what you have/what you are

try writing down ur good point and bad points on a piece of paper and then get people who know you to write good and bad points about you

i bet things that you consider bad about your self others dont even see and i bet you have triple the amount of good points as bad.

Plus some bad points you can work on like behaviour this will be really benefical and help you to become a better person

I did this some time ago and things that i thought were bad about me turned out to be things that my family and friends like about me.
