Getting Over Bad Experiences

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Your having been afflicted by [some] bad or evil person in your life is not an excuse for you to generalize [that as a] judgment against everyone–like an employee [might generalize], having had an autocratic manager in the past; a wife, having had an oppressive husband, [now] divorced; a business partner, having [once] had a partner who cheated him.

Don’t let fear and agitation stay with you so that [they] stop you from having beneficial relationships [with others] and [going for] things that are good for you in religious or worldly matters.

Seek Allāh’s help, pray the Istikharah prayer [asking Him to grant you what’s best in a decision], and be optimistic.
