To My Future Self - An Introvert's Diary

@VAGABOND @Binocular
After mine +1, before my final boards, I learned that riba is haram and I wanted to be a bank manager but I had to dropped it, and couldn’t go back and choose a different stream at that time, so I had to stick with it. Then I tried for some universities, cleared exams but failed in interviews, and everything went downhill from there. There was no one to guide me at that time, and now I’m just procrastinating all day, all week.
No matter what, I will not earn through those ways that Allah decreed haram and not permitted.

It’s finee man! I am sorry I just watched this message in the feed, it’s been a month.
What are you planning after BBA, like CA or MBA or something else? Started making your Resume?

It doesn’t matter now because the degree I’m receiving is from a small university; it has no significance, and I haven’t decided anything after my graduation. I don’t have any talent that companies will notice and hire me for, and I have zombie-like communication skills.

Don’t think like that. Even I got no good University because I was an arts student. DU required maths for both commerce and science at my time as a compulsory subject in 12th to get admissions. Although i scores 93 in 10th idk why I chose arts therefore I can’t get there so compromised with a university that gave me admission without maths.

But I found that bachelor’s doesn’t matter much, from where you do master’s matter + your skills. You have alot of options. You can go for consulting, investment banking, auditing, etc.

I can suggest you various resources to upskill yourself.

Nobody cares from where you did you bachelor’s after you get job experience until and unless it’s a very very good bachelor’s degree from a very prestigious college like Harvard. Master’s matter, if you get into a good University like IIMA B C , FMS, etc. You can even apply for Mim abroad after giving GMAt and IELTS, but the expense is a little much.

A consultant or investment banker earns decent money, and a consultant from good Universities earn good enough. It will all depend on how much u give right now.

I personally made a mistake that I started working on my resume in final semester. I suggest you to start working now, you will get really ahead of everyone. I have seen resumes of people doing bachelor’s from very reputed universities, you can also become like that. I myself have accepted one fact, that the university I am in, I can’t rely on it to make me skilled. So, I put the work which the uni lacks. You should do the same.

Riba means interest . Taking and Giving interest is considered haram in Islam . It’s one of the major sins that allah warned us not to do. And whole banking system revolves around interest you might know it .
Bank main source of income is interest

I lost again; the reason is I had two nightfalls in three days and am not sure what is triggering me. Still, my 30 days are unfinished; just relapsed at 29 days .
Overall only 2 relapse this year that’s pretty good start compare to my previous years .

I will bounce back soon

You will get nightfalls on this journey akhi, don’t let them demotivate you from your commitment. The body is used to us throwing our semen away all the time, now it has 29 days’ worth of excess semen. Some will come out. Don’t let this excuse disrupt your journey again.

Even if you get a nightfall every day for a month, don’t watch pornography or masturbate. Don’t use the body’s involuntary actions which you had no control over as an excuse to sin which you were able to control.

I fell on Day 29 of my streak, and now I’m back with a three-day streak and I didn’t fall for the chaser effect.

Reality se rubaru ho jaaye janab itna jaldi nispaksh mein mat aaye. Never let your guard down mate. Inshaallah we will destroy the fitna of shaitan, the accursed one. So don’t think chaser has been gone since there is a long race to be run

I see man you fell two times on 20+ days streak.
You need to check if you are peeking because that’s the hidden devil that has swept many a great streaks. That’s the final test after reaching a bigger streak.
