Peer pressure is not about others being right really. It’s more about your worry over of possibly being wrong.
Right & wrong are judged based on evidence. Not the numbers of the masses doing or leaving something!
You were created by Allah and are special. You have no need for being defined by others.
Don’t live in the shadows of others. Rather Live in the shadow of evidence.
If anything; evidence has shown us that the world has a history of proving the majority to be wrong many a time.
Allah says in Surah alAn’aam, a surah dubbed as the surah of steadfastness & protection against misguidance:
“And if you obey most of those upon the earth, they will mislead you from the way of Allah. They follow not except assumption, and they are not but falsifying.”
Don’t be a blind follower. Rather become the change you aspire to see.
Shaikh Sajid Umar
