Criticism - The Creativity Killer




Ideally Speaking, Criticism is the act of analyzing someone or something (such as an article, video, book, product  service etc) with the intention of improving personnel, product or services. However in the day to day life, you will meet so many people criticizing with the negative intentions. For example they do this to defame, discourage and de-motivate others. So it is usually used in negative sense although criticizing does not necessarily means to find fault. In this article I shall give my comments in two categories. 

First, when you are being criticized and second when you are criticizing:

1-  When you are being criticized:

a)    Take it positive. There is  a chance that your well wisher has rightly drawn your attention to something for which there is a dire need for improvement. If this is the case, be grateful to the person who helped you identified the aspect of improvement and move towards the corrective actions.
b)   There is a chance that the criticism is being done just to depress you. Analyze is carefully. If required, seek advice from some friend or colleague about this negative feedback. If feedback meant to be good, see point-1 else shun it right way not allowing you to disturb your peace of mind.

2-  When you are criticizing someone/something:

a)    Always remember that negative criticism results in generation of negative energies so try to criticize in a positive and encouraging manager. Do not become the 'full-stop' for someone's creativity.
b)   Whenever you are about to criticize; ask yourself whether your intention is to help assist the person or you are just going to spread negativity which will consequently result in corrosion on someone's creative skills.
c)    If you really want to criticize someone, do it in an encouraging way. Try to give your comments in multiple groups so that the person understands your feedback and segregate it easily so that he can transform your suggestions in to corrective actions.
d)   Remember the fact that the act of complaining is taking criticism to the next level which is even more damaging and dangerous. So try to remain inside the limits of criticism instead of complaints.
Having said that, there are bad mouthed people who are in habit of constant criticism, regardless of their mental comprehension of things. Be aware of them. They are polluting not only themselves but the environment as well and ultimately impacting you, your product, your skills and/or your services. They are spreading negativity.
Closing my article with the famous quote that says "Instead of criticizing others, become the change you wish to see in the world".

Dont Take Life Seriously

Don't just have career or academic goals
;set goals to give you a balanced,successful life.

Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships,
mental peace are all in good order. 

There is no point of getting a promotion on
the day of your breakup. 

There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts. 

Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions. 

Don't take life seriously. 

Life is not meant to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. 

We are like a prepaid card with limited validity. If we are lucky,
we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just
2,500 weekends. 

Do we really need to get so worked up?
 …It's OK, score low in couple of papers, take leave from work,
fight a little with ur near & dear, Love as mush as you can with your near and dear... 
It's ok... We are people, not programmed devices..! 

"Don't be serious, enjoy Life as it comes"


Thanks & Best Regards,

The Tea Cup

Story: The Tea Cup

Fun & Info @ 
        There was a couple who used to go to shop in the beautiful stores. They both liked antiques and pottery and especially teacups. One day in this beautiful shop they saw a beautiful teacup. They said, "May we see that? We've never seen one quite so beautiful." As the lady handed it to them, suddenly the teacup spoke.

"You don't understand," it said. "I haven't always been a teacup. There was a time when I was red and I was clay." My master took me and rolled me and patted me over and over and I yelled out, "let me alone", but he only smiled, "Not yet."

"Then I was placed on a spinning wheel," the teacup said, "and suddenly I was spun around and around and around. Stop it! I'm getting dizzy!" I screamed. But the master only nodded and said, 'Not yet."

Then he put me in the oven. I never felt such heat. I wondered why he wanted to burn me, and I yelled and knocked at the door. I could see him through the opening and I could read his lips as He shook his head, "Not yet."

Finally the door opened, he put me on the shelf, and I began to cool. "There, that's better," I said. And he brushed and painted me all over. The fumes were horrible. I thought I would gag. "Stop it, stop it!" I cried. He only nodded, "Not yet."

Then suddenly he put me back into the oven, not like the first one. This was twice as hot and I knew I would suffocate. I begged. I pleaded. I screamed. I cried. All the time I could see him through the opening nodding his head saying, "Not yet."

Then I knew there wasn't any hope. I would never make it. I was ready to give up. But the door opened and he took me out and placed me on the shelf. One hour later he handed me a mirror and said, "Look at yourself." And I did. I said, "That's not me; that couldn't be me. It's beautiful. I'm beautiful."

"I want you to remember," then, he said, "I know it hurts to be rolled and patted, but if I had left you alone, you'd have dried up. I know it made you dizzy to spin around on the wheel, but if I had stopped, you would have crumbled.

I knew it hurt and was hot and disagreeable in the oven, but if I hadn't put you there, you would have cracked. I know the fumes were bad when I brushed and painted you all over, but if I hadn't done that, you never would have hardened; you would not have had any color in your life.

And if I hadn't put you back in that second oven, you wouldn't survive for very long because the hardness would not have held. Now you are a finished product. You are what I had in mind when I first began with you."

Almighty ALLAH SWT knows what He's doing (for all of us). Almighty ALLAH SWT will mould us and make us, So that we may be made into a flawless piece of work To fulfill His good, pleasing, and perfect will.

Thanks & Best Regards,

Dont forget to recite Chapter No:56 of Holy Quran Surah Waqiah.
Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, ‘Whoever recites surah al Waqiah at night would never encounter poverty’ [Ibn Sunni 620]

Don't give up hope,

This is the most important. If we lose hope, then we've lost faith. If we lose faith, then we've lost everything. Remember the many times Allah SWT brought victory to Muslims even when the odds were seemingly against us -- such as the Battle of Badr -- and let that fill your heart with hope. That in itself is a big motivating factor.

Lastly, whenever hope does seem at its bleakest, remember Allah's sure promise:
Fa inna ma'al usri yusra, Inna ma'al 'usri yusra - For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease. Indeed, with hardship [will be] ease. [Qur'an: Chapter 94, Verse 5-6]

So let's take whatever action we can with sincerity, humility and hope -- no matter how insignificant it may seem and may Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) bless us to see the light of victory very very soon inshaAllah.

Good People Bad People :: Whats the color of your Glass?

An old man sat outside the walls of a great city. When travelers approached, they would ask the old man, "What kind of people live in this city?" The old man would answer, "What kind of people live in the place where you came from?" If the travelers answered, "Only bad people live in the place where we came from," the old man would reply, "Continue on; you will find only bad people here."

But if the travelers answered, "Good people live in the place where we came from," then the old man would say, "Enter, for here too, you will find only good people."


Color of this world is based on the color of your eyes, color of your glasses. The way you perceive the things; your understand, your thoughts and your experiences. Good and Bad people you will find everywhere in the world, in every country, in every society it is up to us, what we are looking for.

The Unhappy Young Lady

The old Master instructed the unhappy young lady to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and then to drink it. "How does it taste?" the Master asked. "Very bad" Said the lady.

The Master then asked the young lady to take another handful of salt and put it in the lake. The two walked in silence to the nearby lake and when the apprentice swirled his handful of salt into the lake, the old man said, "Now drink from the lake."

As the water dripped down the young lady's chin, the Master asked, "How does it taste?" "Good!" remarked the apprentice. "Do you taste the salt?" asked the Master. "No," said the young lady.

The Master said, "The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains the same, exactly the same. But the amount we taste the 'pain' depends on the container we put it into. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things..... Stop being a glass.  Become a lake!"

How To Make the Most Out of Hajj

How To Make the Most Out of Hajj

How To Make the Most Out of Hajj | ProductiveMuslimPhoto by Marwa Hamad
Most people who have been to Hajj can attest to the fact that it is one of the most memorable experiences of a lifetime! And provided that they have the means to perform Hajj again, they would undoubtedly do so.
If you are fortunate to be honored with the opportunity of performing Hajj, it is important to make the most out of this blessed experience. Here are some tips on how you can take your Hajj experience to the next level, In sha Allah.

1. 'Taqwa' is the most important thing to bring on your trip

If there is one thing you can bank on during your trip, it is that you will be tested, over and over. It doesn't matter if you have a 5-star package and access to amenities that most others don't, you cannot escape the tests that Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) will place before you.
You may experience long delays in getting from point A to point B. You may get ill. You may get stuck with a fellow Muslim in your group that annoys you. You may lose your luggage or your passport. You may get lost from your group. Something may happen that throws your whole Hajj in jeopardy. The bottom line is: you will face challenges along the way. This has always been the case, right from when Hajj was first instituted until now.
Our Master and Creator subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) has provided us with some advice in the Qur'an on how we can respond to the tests that He will send.
"… And take provisions, but indeed, the best provision is fear of Allah. And fear Me, O people of understanding" [Qur'an: Chapter 2, Verse 197].
Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) teaches us how we can prepare for those tests. It is taqwa that you should carry with you every step of the way because it will give you the strength to bear the tests that Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) will place upon you to test your faith and strengthen your imaan and maybe even, raise your status with Him subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He).
Taqwa here means to have an elevated consciousness of Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He), to be constantly aware that He is watching over you at every moment. With this awareness comes a desire to please Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) even in moments of distress. When your buttons are pushed, you control your emotions and act rationally with patience.

2. Internalize your dua

Many people who plan on going for Hajj spend a lot of time focusing on what belongings they should take with them on the trip. They try to prepare themselves for the situations they expect to face.
What gets neglected often, however, is preparing for the moments in which you have the opportunity to make lots of dua and adhkar. There will be no shortage of these situations, because they will present themselves throughout the trip. For example, tawaf and sa'ee are times of making lots of dua and lots of dhikr of Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He). There will be idle moments you have in between the fardh (obligatory) prayers. Even while traveling between locations, sitting on a bus or waiting at the airport, there are idle times that can be utilized.
As part of your Hajj preparations, factor in these precious moments that you will have. Try to memorize as much of the dua you want to recite as possible and thoroughly understand its meaning. So, when you are in front of the Ka'bah doing tawaf, or performing sa'ee or even in your nawafil prayer, the dua will come from the heart. The words you recite will reflect the emotions in your heart. When you are calling upon your Master, your heart calls out too. You won't get this level of spiritual connection by reading from a book of adhkar that you don't know the meaning of. However, it's certainly recommended to repeat the supplications which the Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) taught us.
Practice and rehearse your dua in the weeks leading up to your trip. So when it's time to perform on the big stage, you are able to maximize the opportunity In sha Allah.

3. Make a master dua list for the day of Arafat

Arafat is Hajj. This is the pinnacle of your pilgrimage. This is why you spent thousands of dollars on this trip and exhausted your vacation days for the year. This is the day in which you come to Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) humbled in the simplest of dress, standing in a barren desert, disheveled, with your hands outstretched, pleading with all your emotions hanging out.
Between Dhuhr/Asr (because you will combine these prayers) and Maghrib, is time for you and Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He). Find your own comfortable spot, away from any distractions that might disrupt your dua. This is where you want to make dua for all the things you desire for yourself and your loved ones, both in this dunya and in the akhirah. This is the time where you want to make istighfar, like you've never done so before. And this is the time where you want to feel connected to Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He).
To make the most out of Arafat, start planning for it while you are making your other preparations for Hajj. Sit down and brainstorm an exhaustive master list of all the dua you want to make. If there are Prophetic duas or Qur'anic duas related to what you're asking for, include those on the list. Categorize and group your master list so that it flows following the etiquette of dua. Review and revise this list until you're satisfied.
If you can memorize all of these duas, all the better. If not, having a list to prompt and guide you will certainly be helpful in this situation.

4. Relive the stories of Prophet Ibrahim 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him)

Performing Hajj and Umrah is a commemoration and remembrance of the great sacrifices made by Prophet Ibrahim 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him) and his family. These sacrifices were so important, that Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) chose to preserve them until the Day of Judgment through the Qur'an and through these rites of worship. When performing your Hajj and Umrah obligations, try to develop a deep connection to Prophet Ibrahim's story. It will give greater purpose to the ritual actions.
For example, when you are doing sa'ee, reflect upon when Prophet Ibrahim 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him) left his wife Hajar and son Isma'il alone in a barren, uninhabited desert without sufficient food. Isma'il began crying out of hunger, forcing Hajar to seek out water in the desert. She ran frantically back and forth between Mount Safa and Marwa desperately in search of water. And then suddenly by the will of Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He), the water of the Zam Zam well sprouted out from the ground, and an abundance of water became available. Eventually, the city of Makkah was gradually established around this water source.
As you are performing sa'ee, try to recreate the desperation that Hajar had when she was moving between Safa and Marwa. Call out to Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) with the sincerity, humility and desperation that Hajar showed.
When you are performing tawaf, remember the great efforts Ibrahim and his son Isma'il went through in raising the foundations and building the Ka'bah. When they had completed building this house of worship for Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He), Prophet Ibrahim 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him) didn't have any complacency. He turned and called out in dua:
"Oh my Lord, accept this effort from us. Most certainly, You Hear everything and You Know everything" [Qur'an: Chapter 2, Verse 127].
Just like Prophet Ibrahim 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him) did, we should ask Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) to accept the efforts we are putting in for our Hajj and Umrah.
During the days of Mina, ponder over the story of Prophet Ibrahim's 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him) dream where Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) instructed him of the mighty task of slaughtering his son Isma'il as a sacrifice. Without any hesitation, he proceeded to honor the command of Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He). On his way, shaytan tried his utmost best to influence him to not carry out the command.
When you proceed to perform the stoning rituals during Hajj, reflect upon Prophet Ibrahim's 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him) situation as he was about to slaughter his son, and how he fought off the influence of shaytan.
Reflecting upon these incidents and what it might have been like for Prophet Ibrahim 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him) and his family during those times, will bring an added sweetness to performing these rituals.

5. Days of Tashreeq are days for remembrance

The days following Eid-ul Adha are known as the Days of Tashreeq (the 11th, 12th and 13th days of Dhul Hijjah).
Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) says "And remember Allah during the [specific] numbered days" [Qur'an: Chapter 2, Verse 203].
According to many interpretations of this ayah, the days referenced here are the Days of Tashreeq. These are days designated for celebration and worship, days in which we can enjoy eating, drinking, and relaxing. However, don't lose sight of the instruction in the ayah: to remember Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He).
When coming out of the state of ihram for Hajj, it is a joyous occasion. The preceding days were strenuous and tiring, so it's a relief to come out of the state of ihram and be in your comfortable clothes again. It's key to balance the time during your remaining days in Mina with the remembrance of Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He). The people around you may get caught up in a lot of relaxation and merriment. Remain patient and have taqwa of Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) during these days, and try to dedicate long periods of the day for remembering Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He).
May Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) bless your Hajj journey and may you have an accepted Hajj (Hajj Mabroor). Ameen!
Now please share with us your tips, reflections and/or your thoughts on the best way to prepare for the blessed hajj journey.
