💌 Advice on how to deal with the feeling of regret
From being kind to those who devalue your kindness,
From confiding in those whom you thought could be trusted,
From sharing secrets with “friends” who spread them for gossip,
And from trying to reach out just to get rejected:
Rely on Allah, and with His Love stay contented.
So long as Allah loves you, His slaves aren’t needed,
Specially if those who left happen to be toxic -
Your good traits they ignore, of your blessings they’re jealous,
Convos with them lack purpose, and they’re unsupportive.
No need for bystanders’ support to feel accomplished.
No begging for people’s kudos to feel completed.
Let critics cringe and roll eyes to show they’re envious,
While you keep moving forward to Allah and success.
Don’t you dare connect with those whose care brings no merit.
You’re not prideful. You truly tried your best to invest
In saving the friendship, but they chose to disconnect.
Their gossipy online posts made you lose interest,
Their love for playing hard to get inspired you to dread
Seeing them, and detest how their ways are too childish.
To avoid regretting meeting anyone you’ve met:
Believe Allah controls all things, His Decree accept,
Respect and trust must be mutual to protect friendships,
Know Allah willed it, and life won’t improve by regret.
📖 Abu Huraira RadhiAllahu ‘anhu narrated: Allah’s noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, “The strong believer is more beloved to Allah than the weak believer, but there is goodness in both of them. Be eager for what benefits you, seek help from Allah, and do not be frustrated. If something befalls you, then do not say: 'If only I had done something else.’ Rather say: "Allah has decreed what He wills.” Verily, the phrase ‘if only’ opens the way for the work of shaytan.”
