“Don’t cry because of the hardships of this life. Cry for the forgiveness of Allah. Don’t cry and feel sad for Allah will never leave you alone to suffer. He is with the believer who calls his name. He smiles to the believer who repents. He loves the believer who runs to him in struggle. And on The Day that is coming, you will see how much love and comfort He gives to those Muslims who suffered for Him.”—♥ (via muslimahaishat)
“You let the man maneuver you into thinking that it’s wrong to fight him when he’s fighting you. He’s fighting you in the morning, fighting you in the noon, fighting you at night and fighting you all in between, and you still think it’s wrong to fight him back. Why?”—Malcolm X (via bradicalmang)
The Prophet ﷺ has said: “If Allah loves a person He calls upon Gabriel and says to him that I love this person so love him. Gabriel in turn loves that person and then calls in the skies that Allah loves this person so love him and the people of the skies (the angels) will love him.”

“The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. When one of the limbs suffers, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever”—Hadith (Bukhari & Muslim)

Work for the Hereafter and Allah will be enough for you in your worldly concerns”—- Imam Sufyaan Ath thawri (via silenttyper)
Today my friend told me about something “beautiful” that happened today to her at school regarding her scarf. After I heard the whole story, I saw that despite all the hate and ignorance, there are still some people out there with an open mind and heart, so I decided to share.
This is what she told me:- “As I was in class, a part of my skin was showing around my neck. This kid sitting next to me, reached out, and covered it. I was like wth? He said, “I covered the part of skin that was showing.” When I asked him why he did that, he said, “I take that you are more modest than a lot of other kids in the school. so I didn’t want any part of your skin showing without you knowing.” I started to tear up because he wasnt even Muslim and yet he knew how much modesty means to a Muslim girl that wears the hijab. Subhan’Allah.”
The Sick Heart is a heart with life in it, as well as illness. It has love for Allah, faith in Him, sincerity towards Him, & reliance upon Him, & these are what give it life. It also has a craving for lust & pleasure, & prefers them & strives to experience them. It responds to whichever one of the two that happens to have most influence over it at the time...[It] wavers between either its safety or its ruin." [Ibn al-Qayyim]
“I looked at all friends and did not find a better friend than safeguarding the tongue.
I thought about all garments, but did not find a better garment than piety.
I thought about all types of wealth, but did not find a better wealth than contentment in little.
I thought of all types of good deeds, but did not find a better deed than offering good advice.
I looked to all types of sustenance but did not find a better sustenance than patience.”—Umar ibn al Khattab (radhialla anhu)
“If what you say about me is true, may ALLAH forgive me, and if what you say is not true, may ALLAH forgive you.”—Abu Bakr Siddiq’s (RA) reply to a man saying bad words to him.

“Jibrail (As) once said, “Allah gave me the knowledge to count every leaf on Earth, every fish in the sea, every star in the sky and every particle of sand on earth. But, there is only one thing I can’t count.” The Prophet (SAWS) asked, “What is that?” Jibrail (AS) replied, “When one of your Ummah recites durood or send his salaam to you, the blessing of Allah showers upon him and it becomes impossible for me to count.””—
“The Prophet said, “No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that.””—Reported by Bukhari, Hadeeth. (via mussalman)
“Oh Allah! I miss you. I really do. Embrace me, and give me solace, peace and tranquility. This heart You gave me is only so small, and I can’t seem to fill it with love for people or the World. There is rejection and fear everywhere, but I feel total wholesome acceptance from loving only You.”—A Servant of Allah. (via mussalman)
“If you are grateful, I will give you more” (Quran 14:7).
Counting our blessings helps us not only be grateful for what we have, but it also reminds us that we are so much better off than millions of others, whether that is in terms of our health, family, financial situation, or other aspects of our life. And being grateful for all we have helps us maintain a positive attitude in the face of worries and challenges we are facing almost daily.
“Allah has created the angels from intellect but He did not place lust in them, He created animals with lust but did not place intellect in them, but He placed both intellect & lust in humans, therefore he whose intellect overcomes his lust is greater than the angels & he whose lust overcomes his intellect is lower than animals.”—
