COMPETITIONS

Benefits of Competitions

As humans, we have intrinsic and natural inclinations towards competition. This is an incredibly positive attribute if channeled in the right direction and performed in the right spirit.

Allah (SWT) says: “and in that let those who are competing, compete” (Chapter 83 Verse 26)

This specific verse is referring to competing for goodness in the hereafter.

Competition adhering to the right principles has many positive effects, including the following:

  1. Keeps the mind alert
  2. Assists you to assess your strengths and weaknesses
  3. Encourages you to think outside the box
  4. Helps you build your strategic skills
  5. Raises the quality of what you produce
