Reported by Usamah bin Zaid (RA): "Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "He who is favoured by another and says to his benefactor: 'Jazak-Allah khairan (may Allah reward you well)' indeed praised (the benefactor) satisfactorily."
Best way to overcome writers block is to......'Box' it out of the mind to make way for the words to flow freely again 😜
"The word “love” in the Qur’an appears on over 90 places but interestingly it doesn’t define the word love but speaks about the very first consequence of love… ”committing.” Islam talks about commitment; if you truly love, then commit, if you do not commit then your claim of love is not real."

Everyday he saw himself as an evil person until she came into his life and made him see his angel side which convinced him that he was not such a bad person after all.
You will never completely feel at ease until you firmly believe that Allah has already pre-ordained all matters. The pen has dried and wilh it has been written everything that will happen to you. Therefore, do not feel remorse over that which is not in your hands. Do not think that you could have prevented the fence from falling, the water from flowing, the wind from blowing, or the glass from breaking. You could not have prevented these things, whether you wanted to or not. All that has been preordained shall come to pass.
"Then whosoever wills let him believe, and whosoever wills, let him disbelieve." -(Qur'an 18:29)
I wonder if this is it. This feeling of wonder and openness. I heard your name and marvelled at how familiar it was to me.
We are yet to meet, but until then, I wonder if you too have heard my name and felt the stars align.
Sometimes all it takes is a mickey mouse drawing ( even though its childish way of drawing) to make you happy when you are feeling low.
I find myself addicted to lettrs because I am addicted to reading about the complexity and the beauty of the human condition on this app.
lettrs is a unique messaging platform for people of consequence, writing about the trials and the joys of living in a modern society.
This special place invites people to be "an original"- and yet at the same time to be connected to the vast tapestry of words happening across the world. Perhaps one day in the future people will look back at this mark in time as the beginning, of letters as a second language.
I am proud to be a part of this.
This is the special paper of my family who lifts my spirits.
I met my husband 21 years ago in Madrid, Spain and we took a big chance, on feeling without thinking. We chose love.
We leaped without any sense of what could happen. In fact we spent 6 months writing letters and falling through our words.
Today love comes back to us.
Narrated `Abdullah bin Abbas (RA): Allah's Messenger ﷺ said, "Jibrail recited the Qur'an to me in one way. Then I requested him (to read it in another way), and continued asking him to recite it in other ways, and he recited it in several ways till he ultimately recited it in seven different ways."
One of the best part of your life will be those small, nameless moments you spent with someone who matters to you...
This world can be a lonely place for the misunderstood. People who become collateral damage in the meaningless wars being fought around the world for power or money.
In light of recent events, a few of my very close friends have come under attack simply because of the religion they belong to.
When things like this start to happen in a country known for being secular, you know things are very bad.
So what can we do? The only thing that is in our control. In a world of darkness, we have to be warriors of light.
So this is me telling all those who are being mistreated, abused or otherwise harassed because of the sheer ignorance of the less evolved among us - I am here f...
