The good side of bullying

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

I hope you are well.

The title may have offended you or it may have evoked disgust at me for writing such a thing. However, if you read the definition and explanation of the title, you will understand, insha’Allah.

Being a person who was bullied myself, I remember every horrible emotion, thought and feeling that I felt during those hard times. And it hasn’t gone away.

But one thing that I have found during my life and even now, after everything, is a good part of me which I love.

At first, I thought it must just be that I was blessed with these qualities as everyone gets different blessings. But then I saw a link forming with this blessing within the self and bullying.

I have been watching some YouTubers for a few years now and I know quite a lot about them. One thing I know about a few of them is………that they were bullied. In high school, secondary school, middle school, you name it, they were bullied.

The special thing about these few YouTubers that were bullied is that they posses the qualities which I thought were just a blessing from Allah (SWT) to me.

The qualities that I speak about are kindness to humanity at large, a real care and concern for humanity, love for animals and the world, a desire to spread only love around the world and most importantly, a strong sense of faith, where everything comes from.

I will show you some examples of this from YouTubers that I know that are like this after being bullied.

The first YouTuber is Karim Metwaly (AreWeFamousNow/AreWeKukuNow). He is known for his loving, caring and peaceful attitude to the world.

In the video below, he speaks about the beauty of people.

The second YouTuber is Yousef Erakat (FouseyTube). He is now known for his social experiments of real life situations.

The video below is about the reactions of people to discrimination towards hijab-wearing women.

The third YouTubers are TrueStoryASA (TrueStoryASA/ASA Vlogs). They are known for being very loving towards all creatures, especially Adam Saleh.

This video is a way that they wished to just help the homeless, without realising that they would start a worldwide movement.

The fourth YouTuber is Amena Khan (Amenakin). She is known for her love of helping others by inspiring and motivating sisters/women.

This video is one of her videos in which she just talks about an issue she can speak about from a personal perspective.

These four/five YouTubers have been my evidence for bullying not being all bad.

Yes, it is definitely the one of the worst things you can go through at that time, without a doubt. But the way Allah (SWT) gives you blessings isn’t always the way that you want it to be.

Sometimes we do need to look a little bit deeper to see the light shining at the end of the tunnel.

JazakAllahu khairan for reading.

Live your life!

Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu,

I hope you are well.

I wanted to talk about motivation and the fact that you, as one person, can do so much to change or improve society and maybe even, the world!

I had always been motivated from a young age and would always aim for the stars, and nowhere below. However in the past few years, I have been less than motivated, due to people’s comments and digs.
I had forgotten my potential.

I was thinking about the effect of people’s comments to my motivation and just how powerful they can be, to change a person who would do extra work, just for the simple fact that I wanted to gain knowledge, into a person who can hardly bring herself to make a few amendments to an essay.

People in your life may attempt to push you down and make you feel insignificant. But don’t let them!

Remember that Allah(SWT) is testing you because, and only because, He(SWT) LOVES you!

How amazing!

So keep on pushing back harder because you are worth SO much more than any jealous or horrible person will ever say or think about you, because Allah(SWT) loves you! 😀

Just because you haven’t got a job or just because you’re not doing well in your studies, does not mean that you are a piece of rubbish.

The world is yours so take it by the horns and ride it! Make the most of what you have and strive to get what you haven’t got, like a job or a car or good grades!

Insha’Allah(SWT) you will get what you wanted and more, if it is good for you! Ameen.

You may be in one place but you NEVER have to stay there! Ignore the people and focus on ONLY pleasing Allah(SWT)! (It’s much easier!)

JazakAllahu khairan.

Assalamualikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu,
