The answers on are based on the research of Ikram Hawramani in the Quran, hadith, scholarly works and respected fatwa sources. You can view Ikram Hawramani's credentials on the about page. Please note that we do not issue fatwas, we only compile the opinions of respected scholars (even when a fatwa is not explicitly cited) to make their opinions accessible to English-speaking Muslims. If an answer does not cite fatwas, please feel free to leave a comment asking for a fatwa citation and we will update the answer as soon as possible to include fatwas.

IslamQA: Dealing with not being liked

I’m beginning to think that people don’t like the person I am from the people I know. I can read body language and the signs that they give. So what does one do? The relationships I have aren’t great. Being anti social doesn’t help either in this scenario. So brother Ikram what do I do? Can you give me some guidance please. I need your help.

If you focus on yourself and improve yourself, then you can become the kind of person that people cannot help liking. If you are generous, forgiving, loyal, and do not expect anything from people, then they will like you. Read the Quran for an hour daily and make its teachings the rules of your life. Become a saint. People cannot help liking saints.

And God knows best.
