These are the lines which a Syrian student wrote in his notebook, which was later found by his teacher in Madinah.
 -“When the war ends in Syria we’re going to close its doors and put a sign that says “nobody can enter”. We’re going to cry out of joy by ourselves, just like we lived our sadness by ourselves.”

Allah blessed us with the maxi skirt trend and then shaytaan ruined it by making them all sheer with slits down the side.

Inna lillahi wa ina ilaihi raji'oun.

The hardest thing in the world, is hearing about the death of someone who was your age especially on tumblr. Ayanic-Bond has passed away today in a car accident along with a friend in Oregon.

She was only 19, and from what our mutual best friend Ayannish told me, she was the sweetest girl in the whole world. I never knew her, but as my sister in Islam my heart aches for her and her family and everyone that she was close to.

A little prayer for the strugglers (I’m with you):

The Prophet (sa) would say every morning and evening, “Allah, I seek solace in you from hamm and hazn.”

Hamm means things we’ve experienced in the past that sadden and worry us. Hazin are things in the future that scare us and sadden us. Allah is al-Qadīr and al-Rahīm.

May Allah lift the hamm and hazin from us, relieve our burdens and grant us the faith to soar above dark times. Stay strong and know that there are others going through what you are going through, even Imams and activists. You are not alone!

With faith, worship and community, you can do it - with God’s help, you got this. “Indeed, Allah’s help is (constantly) close.”

Even though I don’t know you, consider my prayers as a crutch with you at every tear and sad feeling. My prayers are not strong - I’m in need of yours more. But everyone holding on to their faith amongst the rocky seas of life, I love you for the sake of Allah and I’m happy to share in the struggle with you. Have a great Sunday!

The explanation of hamm and hazn just blew my mind. I’ve known that dua for years and loved it when I read the translation but now it means so much more.

"The Angel of Death was sent to Musa (PBUH). When he came to Musa, Musa slapped him on the eye. The Angel returned to his Lord and said: ‘You have sent me to a slave who does not want to die.’ Allah said: ‘Return to him and tell him to put his hand on the back of an ox and for every hair that will come under it, he will be granted one year of life.’ Musa said: ‘O Lord! What will happen after that?’ Allah replied: ‘Then death.’ Musa said: ‘Let it come now!’ Musa then requested Allah to let him die close to the Holy Land so that he would be at a distance of a stone’s throw from it." Abu Hurairah added: "Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: ‘If I were there, I would show you his grave below the red sandhill on the side of the road." [Sahih Al-Bukhari]
Musa (PBUH), Prophet of Allah and the one to whom Allah spoke directly, met his death with a contented soul and a faithful heart that looked forward to righteousness and made haste to meet with Him Who bore tidings of peace.So are we ready? How much more time do we need? If not now then when?

If you don’t pray often, you won’t gain a love for praying. Prayer is work, and therefore it is not very appealing to our natural sensibilities. But the simple rule for prayer is this: Begin praying and your taste for prayer will increase. The more you pray, the more you will acquire the desire for prayer, the energy for prayer, and the sense of purpose in prayer.
