People generally abandon their own culture and identity, and they borrow from cultures of others due to following their base desires or for some personal benefit or due to having an inferiority complex. As Muslims we need to remind ourselves that all the temporary pleasures of this world will one day come to an end. Eternal enjoyment is only in Paradise.  We also need to remind ourselves that Allah Ta’ala, our creator, knows what is most beneficial for us. Thus all our benefits lie in the teachings of Islam.

Lastly it is impossible for a Muslim to regard the ways of others to be better and to thus feel inferior, because Allah Ta’ala has chosen only the best for His last Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), and we are the followers of Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

Let us not be like that child who gave away his priceless diamond for a shiny stone, that we give away our valuable Deen and Sunnat for some fancy fashion, or some alien culture.
