Toxic people are everywhere. We all have at least one or two such people in our social circles, even though we still haven’t realized it yet. We may live with them, work with them, or even have them in our circle of friends, but they are difficult to spot. Therefore, it becomes all the more important to understand what exactly is a toxic person and other important issues related to toxic people. This week, InshaAllah, we will be focusing on toxic people, not to blame anyone or point fingers at anyone, but rather to save ourselves from difficulty and also to help us identify if we are actually being the toxic ones.

What Are Toxic People?

Toxic people over-identify and act out the parts of who they are, such as the victim, bully or perfectionist. They act from these parts trying to get their needs met, albeit in an extremely unhealthy way. It’s common for people with toxic behavior to: create drama in their lives or be surrounded by it; try to manipulate or control others; be needy (“it is all about them all the time”); use others to meet their needs (such as “narcissistic parents”); be extremely critical of themselves and others; be jealous and envious of others, bemoaning their bad fortune and others’ good fortune.

According to the experts, it’s not that the whole person is toxic. Rather, their behavior is toxic or your relationship with the person is toxic. Often the person is deeply wounded and for whatever reason, they are not yet able to take responsibility for their wounding, their feelings, their needs and their subsequent problems in life.

Spending time with toxic people can be terribly destructive.

Psychological research demonstrates that insults and criticism can be five times more powerful than positive communication such as compliments. If you want to keep your relationships flourishing, you need a lot of positive interaction.

If you surround yourself with toxic people, you can be sure to pay the price for it one day. Even minimal interaction with people who are negative can have a huge impact on your personal happiness and performance at work. That’s why you should make sure to avoid toxic people will only drain your energy and bring you down.

Masruq says: "I went to Sayyadatina Aayeshah (Radiyallahu 'Anha). She ordered food for me and began saying 'I never eat a stomachful but feel like crying, then I do cry'. Masruq asked: 'Why do you feel like crying?'. She replied: 'I remember that condition of Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) on which he left us for the next world. I swear by Allah that he never filled his stomach twice in one day with meat or bread'".

Commentary: Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) preferred a simple life for himself and his family. There was not so much, that all could fill their stomachs. Even if there was something available it was given to the poor.

During the French revolution, hundreds of people were guillotined. One day, three men were led up to die. One was a lawyer, one was a doctor, and the third was an engineer.

The lawyer was to die first. He was led to the guillotine, the attending priest blessed him, and he knelt with his head on the guillotine. The blade was released, but stopped halfway down its path. The priest, seeing an opportunity, quickly said, "Gentlemen, God has spoken and said this man is to be spared; we cannot kill him." The executioner agreed, and the lawyer was set free.

The doctor was next. He was blessed by the priest, then knelt and placed his head down. The blade was released, and again stopped halfway down. Again the priest intervened: "Gentlemen, God has again spoken; we cannot kill this man." The executioner agreed and the doctor was set free.

At last it was the engineer's turn. He was blessed by the priest, and knelt, but before he placed his head on the guillotine he looked up. Suddenly, he leapt to his feet and cried, "Oh, I see the problem!"
