    Event Description

    Seeds is a platform for students which aspires to assit personal development through open, context based discussion on elements of personal leadership & contemporary issues. The first discussion will be based on the principles of giving good advice, good advice vs. judgemental advice and leading by example against leading by word. Questions to consider: 1. “Enjoin ​​good​​ and​​ forbid​​ evil”-​​it​​ is​​ therefore ​​imperative​​ that​​ we ​​do​​ so?​​And ​​by doing​ ​so,​ ​do​ ​we​ ​have​ ​a​ ​right​ ​to​ ​“suggest”​ ​improvements​ ​to​ ​other​ ​way​ ​of​ ​life? 2. Are​​ we​​ equipped​​ with​​ the​​right​​ knowledge ​​to​​give ​​advice?​​ What ​​are ​​my intentions?​ ​Do​ ​you​ ​care​ ​about​ ​the​ ​person​ ​on​ ​the​ ​receiving​ ​end? 3. The​​Prophet​​(صلى الله عليه وسلم)​​said,​​“The ​​religion ​​is ​​naseehah​​(sincere​​advice).”​​Once ​​you give​ ​the​ ​​sincere​​ ​advice,​ ​does​ ​it​ ​matter​ ​then​ ​if​ ​it’s​ ​applied?​ ​Do​ ​you​ ​feel​ ​as​ ​if​ ​you have​ ​failed​ ​if​ ​the​ ​person​ ​ignores​ ​the​ ​naseeha? ​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​4.Simultaneously,​ ​what​ ​we​ ​perceive​ ​may​ ​not​ ​be​ ​reality-​ ​Humans​ ​naturally​ ​tend to​ ​judge​ ​each​ ​other​ ​and​ ​hasten​ ​to​ ​do​ ​so.​ ​Should​ ​you​ ​get​ ​to​ ​know​ ​the​ ​person​ ​first better,​ ​get​ ​to​ ​know​ ​their​ ​background,​ ​avoiding​ ​taking​ ​things​ ​out​ ​of​ ​context? suggested background for discussion:
