This day and age, with social media, it is very easy to share your happiness with people in a second but at the same time, it is very easy to lose. Many of us are blessed with beautiful marriages and we publicize them to people we don’t even know. Sometimes to people who we know as well but they aren’t really happy for our new found happiness. Instead, they hope it breaks apart because they either didn’t get you or they wish they had what you had.
Protecting yourself from envious people, who pray for your downfall begins when you stop publicizing important details about your life, which of course, one of them is marriage. We all want to share happy moments with others but not everyone is going to openly accept them. If you are a single sister who just happens to get married but there were many proposals that came your way, do your best to keep it within a close circle of people that you actually know. If you are a single brother who just happens to get married but there were many proposals that came your way, do your best to keep it within a close circle of people. Social media doesn’t need to know because a lot of us have people on social media that we don’t even know and sometimes, even the people we know don’t want us to be happy.
Don’t post pictures of you and your spouse smiling and being happy. Don’t post pictures of your wedding day. Don’t post any type of pictures where people will turn that happy moment against you. The evil eye is real and it can destroy something good. It is the only thing that can change the decree. The Prophet Muhammad (Peace & Blessings Be Upon Him) said: “The evil eye is real and if anything were to overtake the divine decree, it would be the evil eye.” [Muslim]
There is someone lurking, waiting, hoping you aren’t happy with the one that makes you happy. What you going to do? Call Ghostbusters!!
No, I am joking but don’t post these types of thing on social media. It’s best to keep your happiness between you and your loved ones.
(The eye of Fatima does not protect you from the evil eye, in fact, it will harm you so only seek protection from Allah. Not from any amulets (taweez) given to you)
