Asalaam Alaikum Everyone =)

Just curious, where does this "Everything happens in 3" superstition come from ? I am not sure what to call it other than a superstition at this point.

What do you guys think about it?

I feel like something along those lines occurred today, so I was just wondering if it was true.... or if it was just my imagination outlining it to fall into a favor of 3.

LOL no no, I mean when for example three good events occur a day, or 3 bad events... basically three good/bad things one after the other.

I know what you mean....this is the best way to explain it.

For example,

If I go to the Casino,

I am bound to win money (1goodthing) run into a pretty guy(2nd good thing)have fun supposedly(3rd good thing)


If I walk in a street at 3am

I am bound to trip and fall (1badthing) I am bound to get robbed(2nd bad thing)I might even find a taxi(3rd bad thing)

That is your mind playing games on you and signifiying minor events to make it seem big so you can apprehend the situation to be a "3rd" good thing or bad thing.

That makes sense ...

Well ... no comment :(

MFD,that was a joke lol.


But Gulmini can you further explain what you mean though...

Three bad things happened to me today ... and like I just remember ppl always referring to this phrase of .."things come in three." Although you can always change three bad things into three good things, as things could have been worse.

So choose your option,(The options can be changed contextually depending on where you are)

I can give a ton of examples.



Usually at work it happens alot, You might get a promotion following 3 good things.
You might get fired, following 3 bad things.
You might get yelled at and etc

exactly, but I guess it all goes back to probability and how our minds interpret things.

Wa'alaykum Asalaam Wrora.

You answered your own question.. it's nothing more than superstition.. (which is haraam). :)

Yeah I understand that, but I guess I first wondered if it truly was a superstition or if there was another reason or something ...

Also, I wondered if anyone knew the story about why this came to be, but I guess the best reasons would be to combine (or not combine) superstition with psychological reasonings.
