Pursuit of enlightenment

Ibn Abbas reported: I was riding with the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and he said, “Know that there is much good in patience with what you dislike, that support will come with patience, relief will come with affliction, and hardship will come with ease.”

— Source: Musnad Ahmad 2800 - Grade: Hasan (fair) according to Ibn Hajar (via whichpose)


My baby daughter, when you point to your belly button and ask “what’s this” with a grin on your face, my mouth says “belly button,” but my heart says:

This is the mark on your body that connects me to you. It doesn’t fade with age. It will always be there to remind you that my lifeblood is your lifeblood. You are a part of me; you grew with me, you ate with me, you cried with me. I knew you before I met you, I loved you before I knew you.

So when you look down at your belly button, know that although you are out in the world now, roaming, learning, laughing, being…you are still from me, you are still within me. An umbilical cord no longer connects our bodies, but a love that cannot be cut will always connect our hearts.

"And We have enjoined upon man [care] for his parents. His mother carried him, [increasing her] in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning is in two years. Be grateful to Me and to your parents; to Me is the [final] destination" (31:14).

meandmyself-o:

My dearest future husband,My expectations are not of a princess. I do not need all the riches of the world. All I ask is that you are rich with knowledge. Please do not feel threatened by labels and certificates. They mean so much less than the knowledge of Islam I pray you possess. I pray that you’ll be my other half who will help me answer our children’s’ questions when I have no idea what to say. I pray you be there to finish my sentences and teach me where I am lacking, for I know I am.I do not expect you to be as beautiful as Prophet Yusuf (‘Aalayhi Salam), I will be grateful enough you becoming the light of my eyes. If we were meant for each other, if I am the lucky girl Allah created for you, then Im sure Allah will bring our hearts together and make us fall in love when we finally meet. How can I expect someone handsome and good looking, when I am but an awkward and clumsy girl.A Muslimah’s letter written for her future husband, her future partner and the future father to her children. Even though I have yet to meet him, I pray that you are always in the best of health, under Allah’s protection and barakah, no matter where you are.Although there is no way to determine how and where we will meet, my prayers are always with you, so that one day we will find each other under the best of circumstances.

  • Atheist:So how do you know Islam is right?
  • Me:Because even if I die, and find out there is no heaven, or no God, I could still look back on my life and be happy with the way this religion taught me to live.
