Why you should keep your plans privat? Hadith

Numerous Hadith and Quranic verses require us to keep our plans private as it may have a negative impact on the plan itself.

Hadith about keeping things to yourself

Muslims believe in the existence of the evil eye as there are numerous hadiths about it. We should not share forthcoming good news and plans with everyone as the evil eye may alter it.

Prophet Muhammad ๏ทบ has advised us to maintain privacy while sharing our goals, achievements, and plans with others in a hadith.

Prophet Muhammad ๏ทบ said: Seek help while your needs are being met in seclusion as those who are blessed are always envied.

Prophet Yousuf ุนู„ูŠู‡ ุงู„ุณู„ุงู… used to make this dua: ุฃูŽุนููˆุฐู ุจููƒูŽู„ูู…ูŽุงุชู ุงู„ู„ู‘ูŽู‡ู ุงู„ุชู‘ูŽุงู…ู‘ูŽุฉู ู…ูู†ู’ ูƒูู„ู‘ู ุดูŽูŠู’ุทูŽุงู†ู ูˆูŽู‡ูŽุงู…ู‘ูŽุฉูุŒ ูˆูŽู…ูู†ู’ ูƒูู„ู‘ู ุนูŽูŠู’ู†ู ู„ุงูŽู…ู‘ูŽุฉู โ€

‘O, Allah! I seek Refuge with Your Perfect Words from every devil and from poisonous pests and every evil, harmful, envious eye.’ ” – Sahih al-Bukhari 3371

The devil is an evil figure who tends to become happy at the loss of the people of Allah. He is the open enemy of all people, and he can throw his card when things are being blessed to you to make things worse for you.

Quran about not telling your plans

Even if we read Surah Yousuf, we shall know that plans should be kept private.ย 

Prophet Yaqoob ุนู„ูŠู‡ ุงู„ุณู„ุงู… told Prophet Yousuf ุนู„ูŠู‡ ุงู„ุณู„ุงู…: “O my son, do not relate your vision to your brothers, or they will contrive against you a plan. Indeed Satan, to man, is a manifest enemy.โ€ – ย Yusuf 12:5

Thereby, we should make sure that if a plan is in the process and things are going as per plan, we donโ€™t need to share it with everyone. We can share it when the plan has become successful.

How to apply it in your life?

When you get a hint that you will be promoted, remain relaxed and keep the news to yourself until you really get promoted: not everyone gets promoted, and everyone wants to.

If you have conceived a child, donโ€™t tell it to everyone; many are waiting for the blessing. If you are blessed with health, donโ€™t make it public: there are many who wish for it!ย
