Superstitious believe in my Culture

Superstitious believe in my Culture

By; Kiran Shehzadi

The ways of life, including arts, beliefs, and institutions, of a population that are passed down through generations, are called culture. I live in Punjab, so my culture is Punjabi. In my culture, people find their commonalities in the Punjabi language, rituals, music, dance, food, and dress despite religious differences. Superstitious beliefs in my Culture
I like food and dress in my Punjabi culture. But there are some misleading nations in my culture. For example, even today, some people do not go on a journey on a certain day. Some people cut off their journey if a cat crosses their path. One of the most important superstitions is that most people believe that a guest will come if they crow on the wall of their house. They believed in the signs of good or bad luck. They are afraid of broken mirrors and the numbers 3 and 13. Even astrology and fortune-telling are still practiced. These superstitions become the cause of disturbances in the mind. We can’t pay attention to our goals due to these superstitions. But we are less fearful of them. Now these generations are passed down through generations. We know that there is a solid reason behind everything that happens. Islam distinguishes between God-given gifts, or good magic, and black magic. Good supernatural powers are therefore a special gift from God, whereas black magic is achieved with the help of Jinn, and devil superstition may lead to stress, depression, and related health problems. To overcome this first, we should set our minds. Do not connect and associate with any event. For example, if someone believes in a superstition that avoiding black cats brings bad luck, they may feel anxious or change their plans when encountering a black cat. Like this, if we think that there is too much cold weather, our bodies start to shrink, and if we think it’s all right, then.
