How do I find a mentor

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a mentor in life. Someone who I can look up to for a guidance and direction in life so as to know what decisions to make. How do people end up finding a mentor in life? I can’t think of anyone who I can make my mentor. Any idea or suggestion?

I would suggest you look up everything you can about Fatima Al Zahra (عليه السلام) and Sayeda Zaineb (عليه السلام), their life, the trials they went through and the choices, decisions and stands they made; and try to follow them as your role models. They might not be around for one on one mentoring, but the principles they've set can guide us in much of what we go through today.

The women of Ahlul Bayt(عليه السلام) Other than the two ladies mentioned in the post above 

1. Fatima bint Hazam (Ummal Baneen)

2.Lubaba bin Ubaydullah(wife of Hazrat Abbas)

3. Fatimah bint Musa(commonly known as Fatima al-Masooma

4. Lady Hajra(Mother of Hazrat Ismail (as)) 

There is so much to be learnt from studying the lives of these women- to be an exemplary daughter, a loving wife to your husband, lessons on motherhood, lessons of being a single mother, how to stay strong in the face of oppression, making the right choices when faced with adversity, how to do sabr, making an active contribution to the society, being politically and socially active, there is sooooo much.

I am sorry I cannot suggest anyone from the current era. Non Shias don't make the cut and unfortunately there isn't anyone from the Shias that I could suggest.
