I am a student who has a very bad past(porn addiction, mental illness and a very bad person to my society) and now I want to prove the world what I am capable of by becoming successful. my question is, if I want to become successful and show my friends and family what I am capable of then am I seeking fame and if I am seeking fame is it haram?
Bro you can see these scholares https://images.app.goo.gl/ToyFh2ASHRwhwazk6 You can say that these are islamic scholars promoting deen but they to have fame.
And no were in quran or hadeed it is written "not to get fame".
So you can have fame.
