    Report bad ads?

    Can they be disabled ? Or at least for me?

    The reason for this is we post to help the non-Muslims and others on matters we have knowledge of for the sake of Allah only, to guide people to truth and not to get praised.

    Despite this, it is easy to want appreciation and likes and i find myself sometimes wondering who liked my post when i get notifications which i am afraid might be the cause of "showoff" or seeking praise from others which makes our good deeds useless.

    I understand some people want them and is a way to keep interest of some members who might even participate more for this so maybe disable it just for me? so i can't get the satisfactions or even get any thoughts about it. Not sure if VB allows disabling it for some individuals, maybe my rep can be in negatives and not increasable or hidden.

    Thanks!

    عن عبد الله بن مسعود رضي الله عنه : ـ
    مَن كانَ مُسْتَنًّا ، فَلْيَسْتَنَّ بمن قد ماتَ ، فإنَّ الحيَّ لا تُؤمَنُ عليه الفِتْنَةُ ، أولئك أصحابُ محمد - صلى الله عليه وسلم - ، كانوا أفضلَ هذه الأمة : أبرَّها قلوبًا ، وأعمقَها علمًا ، وأقلَّها تكلُّفًا ، اختارهم الله لصحبة نبيِّه ، ولإقامة دِينه ، فاعرِفوا لهم فضلَهم ، واتبعُوهم على أثرهم ، وتمسَّكوا بما استَطَعْتُم من أخلاقِهم وسيَرِهم ، فإنهم كانوا على الهُدَى المستقيم
    رواه ابن عبد البر في "جامع بيان العلم وفضله" (2/947ـ رقم 1810) ـ
    ‘Abdullah ibn Mas‘ood said: “Whoever wants to follow a path, let him follow the path of one who has died, for the living are not safe from fitnah. I mean the Companions of Muhammad . They were the best of this ummah: the purest in heart, the deepest in knowledge and the most straightforward. Allah chose them to accompany His Prophet and establish His religion, so recognise their status and follow in their footsteps and adhere as much as you can to their example of conduct and attitude, for they followed true guidance.” [Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr in Jaami‘ Bayaan al-‘Ilm wa Fadluhu, 2/947, no. 1810]

    It is an excellent idea to have the ability to hide ones own received likes due to fear of riya, although as humans, it is natural to be pleased at seeing the fruits of one's good deeds on others, as long as that feedback system isn't used to falsely engineer and manipulate neg or pos public opinion.

    You need not pay any attention to it as you are posting to help others but not show off. Show off comes in when your intention changes. I will like you to read this post for more information on show off.
