A beautiful ayah to instill hope in our hearts for times when we get caught up in unexpected enmity.
my first attempt at making an Islamic tumblr image. This verse has always moved me so I’ve decided to use it.
for the sake of Allah :)
Bab’Aziz - The Prince That Contemplated His Soul
An enchanting and parabolic film by Tunisian director Nacer Khemir about the beauty, grace, humility, and love of the Sufi path of the heart.
That’s just one of the beautiful things about our deen…our job isn’t to worry about the outcome of things. Our job is to simply do our best towards our goals, and to enjoin good and forbid evil. What results from that is in Allah’s Hands, and it is what’s best for us, whether we realize it then or not.

Asalaamu’alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh!
I have to conduct an interview for a creative nonfiction class. I decided it’d be best if I interview Muslims like myself! :]
I chose Islam for obvious reasons:
a) Media portrays the religion of peace horribly
b) pure ignorance of the religion and its people
c) Hey! I’m Muslim and that’ll be something new for my class to learn.
I’d like to get as many answers as possible, although the best will be entered into this interview. I’ll let it be known that I’ve conducted this interview with a group of people. So, please do me the favor of passing this around (tag whoever you think would respond).
To people answering: I want your permission if you would like me to state your name in the paper. I can also keep it anonymous. That is perfectly fine.
1. What does your faith mean to you personally? Socially? Culturally?
2. How do you live your faith day-to-day?
3. How easy or difficult is it to practice your faith in the United States?
4. Which portion of your sacred scripture, the Qur’an, is most meaningful to you and why?
5. Which is most challenging?
6. What holy places are especially significant to your faith? Why?
7. Have you ever been on a pilgrimage to a holy place or sacred site? What was it like? Are you planning to go in the future? How important is it for you to go?
8. What role does your family play in the practice and living out of your faith?
(Also, if anyone has better questions that could be put into the interview, let me know & please answer your question for me!)
