Dear happy times,
I've always waited for you.
You keep coming and leaving all the time.
I've always waited for you anyway.
But now I know that's how you are.. You keep coming and going.
So now, on this promise day,
I promise this to myself..
That I'm not going to wait anymore..
That I'm going to find you..
That I'm going to come get you.. And that I'm going to make you stay forever and ever.
No playing hide and seek anymore!
10 Reasons for the Ramadan Guilt Trip
1. Unrealistic Expectations:
Each year we go into Ramadan with extremely high expectations of ourselves. How many times have you heard people promise themselves they’ll ﬁnish the Qur’an 5 times this Ramadan; or that they will pray taraweeh and tahajjud every single night? There is nothing wrong with high aspirations; in fact, we should have high goals to challenge and improve ourselves. However, knowing ourselves, we shouldn’t make our goals unrealistic, thereby putting a lot of psychological pressure on ourselves. So when we feel that we ‘slipped,’ even slightly, we lose all hope of ‘making it’ and fall into the oh-well-maybe-next-year syndrome inst...
If I were an apple tree
I'd scatter fruit for you to eat
I'd court you like a honey bee
If I were a flower, scented sweet
If I were the rolling sea
I'd float you safely back to land
If I were the one for you
I'd take you by the hand

Reported by 'Abdullah (RA): We used to consider miracles as Allah's Blessings, but you people consider them to be a warning. Once we were with Allah's Apostle ﷺ on a journey, and we ran short of water. He said, "Bring the water remaining with you." The people brought a utensil containing a little water. He placed his hand in it and said, "Come to the blessed water, and the Blessing is from Allah." I saw the water flowing from among the fingers of Allah's Apostle ﷺ, and no doubt, we heard the meal glorifying Allah, when it was being eaten by him." (Bukhari)
Never let anyone put you down for who you are, You all are beautiful in some way or another.
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.
Isn't it amazing how The Almighty has given us blessings that we never even asked for, yet we walk on this Earth, oblivious to what Our Lord has done for us. When we are affiliated by hardship we are quick to say 'Why me Ya Allah, why me?'. But when we receive blessings upon blessings we forget to even thank The Almighty. Why do we do this?"
Words to be used -RISK, HONESTY, FLIGHT, TICKET
Taking decisions were always a RISK
However well planned we land up with fate's evil twist
To follow her or not was the conflict in mind
Our bond is such a rarity to find
In all HONESTY my heart longs for her
A small misunderstanding caused her eyes to tear
She took FLIGHT immediately without a thought
Not realising that she was the only one whom my heart sought
There lay the TICKET in my hand
Waiting to change the course of my life with a wedding band.
Sometimes you need to be your own inspiration and lift yourself up from whatever terrible situation you maybe in.
The strongest people, are not those who show strength in front of us, but those who win battles we know nothing about
Don't propose me because you have to... Propose me because you need to.
Reported by Aishah (RA) the wife of the Prophet ﷺ: Jibril (AS) used to recite the Quran to treat the Messenger ﷺ when he felt sick. Jibril used to recite: "With the Name of Allah. He heals you, He heals any disease you suffer and from the evil of an envious and from every eye." (Muslim)
The words "shams" (sun) is feminine, and "qamar" (moon) is masculine. The sun burns itself out to give light and life to everything around, and the moon is muneer, meaning it reflects the light. Within itself it has no light; it radiates the brilliance of the sun. So when we shine as men, the implication is that we are reflecting the glorious light of our women."
-Shaykh Abdullah Adhami
You look so tired, and
you screamed sorrow.
You acted as though
you had no hope
I was alarmed by your
transformation, as you
seem to weaken
before my eyes.
I don't know
where words go
by such surprise.
I love you and
likely always will,
No matter what,
I am your child, still.
Sadly I learned
some things that
I really wish I
could now un-know.
We threw our words
like hefty blows
and said things that
singed our souls.
That's in the past
and I just can't
hurt you anymore,
as I see damage
resides in you
from long before.
I no longer desire
to right those wrongs
because it really
doesn't matter at all.
You were young,
innocent, and n...
