Self-Love: Part 3

What does Self-Love comprise of?

Most of us know what self-love is but do not understand it. You eat because you understand that you need nourishment. It is sad that most of us are trying to conquer external battles like finding success, or finding happiness, but we do not understand that self-love is the root from which everything grows.

Self-love as explained previously, is more than just wearing nice attire. Self-love is an umbrella term for different acts of love we perform toward ourselves physically and non-physically. To love yourself is not an act of selfishness, it is an act of kindness toward others because when you love yourself, others don’t have to deal with your unresolved problems. read more

Umm Haani (RA) (a cousin of Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) says: "Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam came to me (to my house at the time when Makkah was conquered) and asked if there was something to eat. I replied: 'No, there is only dry bread and vinegar'. Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam said: 'Bring it. That house is not without a curry that has vinegar in it'".

COMMENTARY: The fact is that food and drink in the eyes of Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) was given only such importance, that it was only used, when it was required. When necessary he ate what was available. Eating was looked upon as being a means to sustain life. Their aim in life was to propagate the Deen and make a fertile ground for it, and as an obligation and human need to fulfil religious needs. It is also proven from the Hadith that where one has an informal relationship with someone, there is no harm in asking for something.

Gift Mug

I had to go on a business trip the day after my honeymoon, so I decided to purchase a gift for my new wife.

At an airport gift shop, I found a coffee mug imprinted with the words, "I love you" inside a beautiful red heart.

Confident the mug would please my wife, I asked to have it wrapped.

She beamed when I gave it to her at dinner that night, but her face fell when she saw the writing on the back of the mug.

It read, "Grandpa."
