Tomorrow marks the 13th anniversary of 9/11, and with all that’s going on with ISIS I pray nothing happens to America, and all the other countries ISIS threatens. However, if anything does happen, I hope people understand that ISIS is NOT an “Islamic” group. It is a terrorist group, and Islam does NOT condone the torture and killing of innocent people.

I wondered if that was why God hated sin, because of the destruction it caused. For a moment I felt awe for a God who loved me enough to hate the things that hurt me without hating me for causing them.

Contrary to popular belief, the main purpose of monotheistic religion is not to tell man there is a God, but to tell man he is not God.

A former ustaadh (teacher) of my sisters was assassinated in Karachi this past day. If you could spare a moment of prayer for his wife, children and family - I would greatly appreciate it. May Allah protect the knowledgeable and may He preserve their knowledge. To Him we belong and to Him we shall return.

Whoever has offended you and then approached you to apologize, humility obligates that you accept his apology whether it is truthful or not, and that you leave his secret thoughts to Allah. The sign of generosity and humility is that if you notice a defect in his apology, you do not address it nor hold him against it.

Ibn al-Qayyim, Madaarij as-Salikeen (Ranks of the Wayfarers), 2/338. (via asifeq)

I don’t know how our mothers do it, even with their souls shattered they still find it within them to cook, clean and feed us. May Allah bless them and grant them the highest of heavens.

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.

If you guys could pray for this girl’s mother who just passed away today. I haven’t spoken to this girl in years, but we were really close for a few years in high school and I’ve even talked to her mom several times. She has a younger brother who I believe is 9. Praying for their family and their healing :/ Allah yer7amha
