Notice how if we were to stop arguing about who’s right or wrong we could pretty much change the world.
“Is there any reward for good other than good?”
all ayah’s of the Qur’an are beautiful, but I don’t know why this speaks to me the most.
Can y’all please make dua that my health returns? I’ve never been in this much pain or been this exhausted. Thanks.
Being older than most of you I can tell you that your perception changes a lot as you mature. On the same note maturity and wisdom does not always come with age if we do not learn from our experiences and reflect upon them. When I was a 21 year old I saw the world much differently than I see it today. I have been introduced to many realities that before I was naive about. I still have much to learn but I urge all of you to constantly seek knowledge and focus on improving one’s self. Do not put much credence in the negative opinions of people because they too will be judged right next to you.
Try making an impact in your own life and then the lives of others. Never feel like you don’t matter because you do. Everyone has the propensity to become something great …what that greatness entails is entirely up to you.

Ways to Increase ‘Eeman: Reciting and contemplating upon the Qur’an.
Al-Ajurri, may Allah have mercy upon him, said:
"Whoever contemplates His words, will know the Lord and he will know of His great power and capability, His immense favor upon the believers, and of the obligation upon himself to worship Him.
Accordingly, the person imposes this duty upon himself thereby being on his guard against that which his Generous Patron and Protector has warned of and coveting that which He has made desirous.
Whoever is of this description when reciting the Qur’an or when listening to it when recited by another, the Qur’an will be a cure for him. He becomes rich without money, he attains power and strength without kinsfolk and finds intimacy in that which others feel alienation towards.
His desire when opening a Surah for recitation will be, ‘when will I accede to the admonition contained within what I recite?’ and his desire will not be, ‘when will I complete this Surah?’
His aspiration is none other than, ‘When will I understand what Allah is addressing me with? When will I restrain (from committing sins)? When will I take heed?’
This is because reciting the Qur’an is worship and it is not to be done so in a state of heedlessness, and Allah is the one who grants the tawfiq towards that?”
For this reason, Allah, the Generous, orders His servants and encourages them to ponder over the Qur’an, Allah says:
"Do they not then contemplate on the Qur’an? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradiction.” [Al-Qur’an 4:82]
"Do they not then contemplate on the Qur’an, or are there locks upon their hearts?” [Al-Qur’an 47:24]
Allah proclaims that He only revealed the Qur’an so that its ayat would be pondered over, He says:
"(This is a) Book that We have sent down to you, full of blessings, so that they may ponder over its ayat, and that those of understanding may remember." [Al-Qur’an 38:29]
Allah also explains that the reason behind the lack of guidance for the one who deviates from the straight path is his disregard for reflecting on the Qur’an and being too proud to listen to it, He says:
"Indeed, My ayat used to be recited to you, but you used to turn back on your heels. With haughtiness, you talked evil about it (i.e., the Qur’an) throughout the night. Have they not then pondered over the Word (i.e., the Qur’an) or has there come to them what had not come to their fathers of old?” [Al-Qur’an 23:66-68]

Pharrell - Happy British Muslims! #HAPPYDAY
awww i really liked this
i watched this earlier and was gonna post it but now that i see it on my dash, i’ll reblog it.
i also see that they removed the comments, and tbh it’s smart that they did…cause they were getting a lot of hate.
surprisingly enough (or unsurprisingly to many muslims), most of the hate was from other muslims who said this wasn’t holy and were literally saying that what these people were doing was satanic (i know all you non muslims are probably like wtf…me too…me too)
my favorite reply was this one dude who said, “ya’ll lying if you think the prophet and his sahaba wouldn’t be involved in a video like this showing a message like this. they’d be right in there having a good time.”
but “religious” muslims get angry by the strangest things, and i put religious in quotations cause i dont consider them religious but i know they consider themselves religious
you’d think they’d be more infuriated at the muslim community’s indifference to reverts and racism and to the poor and to somalia who has muslims literally dying of hunger due to government unrest and burma’s genocide of muslims and like protest and comment on their country’s facebook page demanding something be done and idk send their politicians to talk to the burmese officials but literally no…this is what they get mad about it, this is what they spend their energy on - leaving hate on a video spreading happiness and commenting on hijabi entrepreneurs’ instagram pages condemning them to hell like no boo
if you’re lucky enough to have access to internet and want to use it to spread rage - please go on your elected official’s facebook or twitter and tell them it’s ridiculous that there is a genocide literally happening in burma and no one is doing anything about it. like please use your rage for a good cause and get ajir like please.
Allahumma hasibnee hisaban yaseera.
O Allah, grant me an easy reckoning.
How arrogant we are to condemn people to hell without knowing what’s in their hearts. How arrogant we are to try to do what only God can do.
My mom just got into a car accident. I’m on my way to the scene right now. Can you all please pray that she’s okay and that everything’s alright?
