A great part of tasawwuf that seems to have been obscured from the masses in the era of big conferences, YouTube videos, Facebook Friends and Twitter Followers, is developing the capacity in one's self to be immune from people's praise and scorn. In an age where being shamed online causes young people to take their own lives, do what is right, and don't worry about what people think afterwards. Enjoy your good deeds because Allah loves them, not for the sake of the people, and feel shame for your sins in front of Him, and don't care what they say. If one can do this it will greatly contribute to their spiritual progress, as well as their own psychiatric well-being.
