Islam says u gotta be humble and down to earth

but if u dont believe ur "all that" - who is?

i have a cousin - bless her she's so lovely in every way. But doesnt have a high opinion of herself in fact she thinks that everyone else is better than her

arrogance in others is a MASSIVE turn off

but at the same time

confidence is a very attractive trait

so, do you guys think your "all that?" :twisted:

or are u really just not "all that" and u have no issues with stating it? *coughAdmincough*

I credit myself with usually being refined and humble and just occasionally on sharp form, but have a perpetual internal battle between absurdly low self-esteem, absurdly high self-esteem and plain old apathy. Some of the traits I admire in others occasionally surface as character flaws so without being arrogant I like not to be especially reverent even of those I admire, not least myself.

i think that

if a person constantly puts themselves down

they'l never stand out from the crowd

u gotta believe in urself

You should beleive in yourself, your own abilities etc

However, its best not to show them off or boast, humility is the best way.

Know that nothing great about you is from you, its from Allah swt

The Lover is ever drunk with love;
He is free, he is mad,
He dances with ecstasy and delight.

Caught by our own thoughts,
We worry about every little thing,
But once we get drunk on that love,
Whatever will be, will be.


We should be humble but only before Allah. It is a sin to be humble before kaafirs.
We should treat them as equal. Why should we treat Kaafirs as in any way better than us?
Kaafirs are not better than Muslims.

Ayatollah rightly named America as "Great Satan".

Becoz god treats everyone on this once-green-earth equally... Muslim or not.

So what you think you're better than God?

(Put that in your pipe and smoke it)

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.

insecure men have serious issues

they cant get anywhere in life

and they've supposed to be the leaders and handle life outside the home

tis important for men to have confidence

I was to believe that god treats people based on their actions and attributes and the way they lived ect ..

i also believed that muslims go heaven and non-muslims go hell , in which case muslims and non-muslims are not treated eqaully among god

also i think the earth is more blue than green and always has been cuz of the vast oceans that cover more area than the land

in regards to confidence , as muslims we should never lack confidence we are the people who have the correct giudence and follow the correct religion , everyone is special in their own way and everyone has their own individaul talents and skills that should bestow on to them confidence.
people who suffer from low self esteem is normally in response to bullying, depression, assault, bad childhood or just a negative self image of themselves due to various other factors e.g. overweight/underweight

having low self-esteem and low confidence is not healthy , for me martial arts / gym/ namaz always gives me a confidence boost

btw im 'all that and more' :twisted:

Interestingly enough, its actually self confidence and not academic success which determines how successful one is in life.

If YOU don't believe your worth something, If YOU don't believe in yourself, why should anyone else?

In other words, it is neccessary to have a certain level of self esteem in ones self...however, high levels of it is arrogance.

And no one likes an arrogant person.

Maybe they see something you don't.

It all depends on whether you let it affect you.

"For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens 'as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone'" - David Cameron, UK Prime Minister. 13 May 2015.

the self fulfilling prophecy that i learnt in sociology proves how important self esteem and public opinion can be

Real Men are those who lead a nation, and do so with such humbleness, that if one ponders on how the individual has achieved all he has, he will conclude that behind him is the hand of God.

Real men are those who are humble enough to sit and chat amongst ordinary people, even humble themselves amongst them, yet they tell the lions of the jungle, in which direction to roam.

Muslims have pride because they know in the eyes of God they are higher because they are believers, yet they are humble because they know that God can test them at any time and take from them the imaan they have in their heart.
