Have you seen him who takes his low desires for his god? (Surah Furqan, 25:43)
And know that Allah knows what is within yourselves, so beware of Him. (Surah Baqarah, 2:235)
Balance holds a very significant place in every phase of life, and yet the phenomenon of social media creates an inner world for us to become so self-focused that it can lead to narcissism. It is a self-love, a need for attention to keep the fragile inner ego convinced it is liked. A recent study has found that students who posted more often on Facebook and Twitter scored higher in specific measures of different types of narcissism, including personality traits such as being exhibitionists, exploitative, and feeling superior. This may result in over-evaluating the importance of our own opinions. How do we center ourselves to the consciousness that every individual should pursue life with firm balance and composure? The goal sought in the remembrance of God is the attainment of balance and being centered as one submits to the consciousness of the Divine.
