  • Does Islam Say Thinking For Ourselves Is Wrong

    In the above video, Neitzche informs to harness our inner potentials, insticts and become authentic.

    Is it wrong in islamic philosophy or quran to think for self and to follow passions and dreams.


    Excerpt from the above article : Saying Allāhu Akbar should safeguard us from pride as we will no longer think of ourselves or what we possess as great.


    Does Allahu Akbar and self-esteem, self-respect, hobbies, passions etc clash with each other. I am asking this because some people use allahu akbar philosophy to disregard or humiliate others and inform that thinking for self-respect and esteem is against allahu akbar philosophy.

    Jazakallahu Khairaa

    Islam has no objection whatsoever in seeking different pursuits to propser in this world, to keep a hobby, to adopt means to attain full potential of our abilities etc. as long as such endeavours are within ethical bounds and are not in direct conflict with any requirement of religion. Whenever such a clear conflict arises, religion or Akhirah in such instances should be given preference over worldly pursuits and this is the only requirement of religion in this regard.
