What Do The Spices Say About You?
SALT – You are easily agitated when triggered. Also, easily misunderstood as being loud when defending yourself. However, your strong opinions serve you well in the decision making process. Others do look at you to lead the team.
SUGAR – You exude a pleasant and positive energy. Often, considered powerless or silenced for being non-confrontational.
SAFFRON – You have a unique outlook of life. Witty and intuitive, you often embark on the quest for truth. You tend to be aloof at times in order to recollect and calm your mind.
CHILLI – You have a sassy retort for every jab that comes your way. Full of passion, yet brutally honest and blunt.
TURMERIC – You love everything yellow! From pineapples to gold stars. Generally, you excel at what you put your mind to, however it is difficult for you to break out of the system. Therefore, you tend to avoid risks by opting for the safest route.
GINGER – Almost always vibrant and helpful. Sometimes, you could be obsessed with solving others’ problems, thus prioritising others ahead of your needs.
So, are you a chilli with a tinge of ginger? Perhaps you’ll find that the flavour you gravitate towards in your foods isn’t necessarily the flavour you exude! Regardless, this is an opportunity to extend some reflection into the way we view ourselves and the way we deal with the people around us and our relationships.
After all, when dealing with fellow Muslims or any other human beings, our Prophet ﷺ says,
حَدَّثَنَا حَجَّاجُ بْنُ مِنْهَالٍ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ يَقُولُ: سَمِعْتُ أَبَا الْقَاسِمِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ: خَيْرُكُمْ إِسْلاَمًا أَحَاسِنُكُمْ أَخْلاَقًا إِذَا فَقِهُوا.
Abu Hurayra said, “I heard Abu’l-Qasim say, ‘The best of you in Islam is the best of you in character when they possess understanding (of the deen).”
[Book 14, Hadith 285]
