Because we’re oppressed, right?
Because we’re married young and just have babies, right?
Because we’re subjected to a patriarchal faith, right?
Because we’re uneducated, right?
— Ibn ‘Aṭā’illāh al-Sakandarī (via theconsciousmuslim)
“If you know yourself, then you’ll not be harmed by what is said about you.”
— Imam Sufyan Al Thawri (via cavum)
i’ve been on tumblr and followed some of you long enough to see that you’ve gradually changed your ways and become more sensitive and appreciative of others and try not to be offensive etc. (as i have too)
but then its like we can’t give other people that same space to grow and i see you guys attacking people that you don’t even know without having a conversation with them or even giving them a chance to understand exactly whats going on. they usually learn from it but i’m saying that we were never perfect to begin with and we’re still learning so just chill
also a lot of the time its easier to just inbox someone and explain why they shouldn’t do or say something and they usually listen without all the commotion
Omar Suleiman is easily the most sincere and principled imam I’ve seen and keep up with.
'The wise man does not argue or seek to overcome with stratagem rather he propagates his wisdom. If it is accepted he praises Allah and if it is rejected he praises Allah.'
— Al-Hasan al-Basri
Some people could be going through so much more than what you see..
They could be crying themselves to sleep, when all they show you is a smile..
There could be so much more going on..
Ya Allah, I don’t know their problems, but You do.
Ya Allah, grant them patience to endure their troubles and forgive them for their sins, Ameen.
Marriage isn’t something I’m supposed plan, while my academics/financial life/religious improvement are.
Please differentiate what can pop up in your life and what you need to work your ass off for.

Humbly asking if you could please keep my mother in your prayers. She is in unbearable pain, unable to move and we do not know what is wrong yet. Your reward is with Allah inshallah.
