We allow ourselves to be blown by the winds because we do know what we want: our hearts know it, even if our thoughts are sometimes slow to follow—but in the end they do catch up with our hearts and then we think we have made a decision.

Poem: Have You Ever - Nadir Keval
I woke up about a half hour ago, rushed with inspiration, so I wrote this poem. I call it "Have You Ever" and it’s about the sensation of love at first sight. I’d often hear about guys knowing at first sight that they’ve met the girl they’re going to marry (not sure if girls get that too :P), and I decided to write something in honour of that :) I hope y’all like it!
- Nadir Keval

Excerpt:
Have you evermet someonewho at first sightleft you breathless,with your heart no longer beating,except with their presence?
When I first saw her,I knew from that momentthat she was meant to bemore than just anybody,but instead, my everybody.

met someone
who at first sight

except with their presence?

When I first saw her,
I knew from that moment
that she was meant to be
more than just anybody,
but instead, my everybody.

I’ve found that people love me when I expect little from them, and hate me when I expect more. What they fail to realise is that the higher my expectation, the greater my belief in their ability to be amazing.

When you ask for a dua from others, you do it out of desperation, hoping people will keep you in their thoughts and prayers. Remember that when someone asks requests a dua from you, or you scroll past one on tumblr.

Important.

Anonymous: Wait you're a muslim? If I knew that when I followed you it would have been a different story. That's disgusting to be honest. Unliked. Unfollowed. Good riddiance. Grasping ton would be spinning in his fucking grave to know Muslims disgraced the army uniform.

Hahaha! I swear this was the best message to wake up to! I’ve been waiting for this moment ever since I first noticed you white trash neo-nazis following me! I didn’t have the heart to say you were following a race traitorous, brown girl loving, American Muslim. Better go cry to Stormfront, you pathetic piece of shit! Hahahah!

And pay attention, because your remarks are about to make me shatter your sad view of American history. The relationship between Muslims and the US goes back as far as the US exists. When George Washington was was being destroyed by the British at Valley Forge, and was about to lose the war… it was African Muslims that saved him. Sultain Sidi Muhammad bin Abdallah (the ruler of Morocco) made history by being the first in the world to register the United States as a country, and allow US ships to resupply in Moroccan ports. Life-saving supplies and weapons flooded in to Washington’s Army, and the war would have been lost without them. To this day, The United States’ longest unbroken treaty is with an Islamic nation - Morocco.

I’m also a tenth generation American, son. My family came here in 1716. That’s more than half a century before The United States of America was even born. My 8th great grandfather fought alongside Washington in Valley Forge, and was given 200 acres of land as a gift for his outstanding actions in battle. If Washington knew I served in “his Army” and followed my family’s legacy, he would shake my hand and thank me for being a true patriot. For embodying the true American virtues of service, humility, and freedom of religion that he fought for.

And one last tidbit: Thomas Jefferson owned a Quran, and to this day, it’s still kept safe in the Library of Congress. He, along with James Madison and George Washington, argued that America should be open to Muslims as citizens, office-holders, and even presidents. John Adams - our 2nd president - also owned a Quran, and called the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) a “great seeker of truth.” Benjamin Franklin called Islam the “model of compassion.” If there’s anyone our founding fathers would be ashamed of… it’s you. Thank you for your unfollow.

Sheesh this blew me away

God often removes a person from your life for your protection. Think about that before you go running after them.

A few brothers picked up a homeless man, fed him, clothed him and cleaned him up all for Allāh’s sake. They gave him dawah and he later accepted Islam. In the photo, one of the brothers is teaching him how to pray salaat. People like this fill my heart with so much love, hope and faith. Maa shaa Allah, may Allah bless the brothers who helped the homeless man. May Allah give them the highest level of Junnah. May he be protected from all harm. Ameen.

And to parents… it is your absolute responsibility, especially to your daughters, to compliment them. It’s not wrong of you to tell them ‘you are beautiful.’ You should tell them they’re beautiful. Because if they don’t hear that from you, they’re going to look to hear that from somebody else. Our girls have low self-esteem because nobody validates them — especially the fathers. The fathers, you have to go out of your way to compliment your daughters. And stop having the attitude that nothing they do is good enough. Stop talking down to them, it’s killing them. It’s killing them. In our deen we always talk about the rights of the parents, and they have rights. But they have responsibilities, too.
