He convinced me that I was
the only woman who could
make him believe in love,
allow him to feel it too.
He said when he looked into
my eyes he could see
constellations that have yet
to be discovered. And I
believed him. I gave him
the fuel to keep his impossible
metaphors alive. His tongue
tasted so sincere that I
mistook his poisonous words
for a hopeful kind of forever.
Ibn Masood Radhiyallaahu anhu said:
"Certain faith (Yaqeen) is that you do not make the people happy by angering Allaah, and that you do not envy anyone for that which Allaah has provided, and that you do not blame anyone for something which Allaah has not given you - since provision will not be bought on by a person craving after it, nor will it be repelled by a person disliking it. Indeed Allaah through His Justice has made joy and happiness dependant upon having certain faith and contentment, and He has made worries and sorrows spring from doubt and displeasure."
[Quoted by Hafidh Ibn Rajb al Hanbalee in his book ‘The Evil of Craving Wealth and Status’, Pg. 12]

May God make thee a virtuous, blameless youth;
Thou livest in an age deprived of decency.
don’t take everything as a personal vendetta against you. people have entire lives separate from you.
We will lose time. So much time actually. We will lose loved ones, too many. We will lose moments and memories. We will lose things that once meant the world to us, we will lose our sanity and ourselves. But we must never lose faith. Please do not ever lose faith. Don’t wait for tomorrow, later will be better. Lose sleep, lose smiles, but do not lose faith. Never lose faith; later will be better.
I don’t believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be.
In the photo Sheikh Tawfeeq al-Sayegh is saying his goodbyes to the Kaabah after having his citizenship revoked in Saudi Arabia. He has been the khateeb and Imam in a mosque in Jeddah for over 10 years. He held political positions that did not conform to that of the Kingdom. He openly rebuked the slaughter of Egyptians at the hands of Sisi in the Rabaa massacres along with his support of the oppressed Palestinians who were betrayed by the Muslims. Anyone who openly opposes Saudis political position in supporting and aiding the oppressors will either face jail or deportation.
Saudi Arabia is issuing citizenships to singers and dancers and deporting and jailing scholars and duaat who dare speak the truth. May Allah rid the Muslims of hypocrite leaders who pretend to rule by the Shariah of Allah and may He protect the scholars of truth from harm, ameen.
Ameen Thumma Ameen. This is so heart breaking.
