It isn’t a coincidence that prayer was commanded right after the year of sadness. The prayer was the greatest comfort.

Throughout summer we shared moments of laughter and our love for the ocean.
Autumn came and you left pieces of my heart like scattered leaves.
During winter, I remained inside and refused to make a snow man.
As it rained during spring, I continued to pray for you.
And just like that, it had been a year since you left.
Gurabah (via gurabah)

He stepped inside his home, was overwhelmed with fear
An angel came with words from God, things were still unclear
Saying read - read, but he could not read, amazing words that he heard
A trembling deep inside his heart, confused by what had occurred

There was only one who could comfort him,
To help him see the light,
To ease his fears, to reassure
Was Khadijah, his wife…

He said Zamilooni, Zamilooni,
Dathirooni, Dathirooni,
(Envelop me, Embrace me)
A mighty task has come before me,
I need you here with me…
By my side.

For you

May sorrow lose it’s way to you, May happiness know only your name

It’s called fall because everything is falling… leaves, temperature, bank account, gpa, self esteem

Sometimes Allah’s signs don’t come in the form of grand epiphanies.
Sometimes you don’t wake up in the middle of the night pouring out of a dream clear and sure.
Sometimes the sign comes in the form of a prayer,
where you are praying for his forgiveness as wholly as you are praying for your own.
Where your hands are shaking as your prayer turns the entirety of your body into an earthquake,
partly out of fear of your God and partly out of gratitude to him that
he has finally given you someone that can make your heart feel.
Key Ballah, Sabr gives me space to see the subtlety of Allah’s signs (via keywrites)

Ok but: Muslims in space. How do they pray? You know? This really bothers me. This should be addressed in more science fiction.

Toward earth?

Malaysia (a Muslim country) actually came up with answers to these questions after they had a few astronauts launched into orbit.

الراحة في الجنة
Rest is found in heaven
My mother says this every time things get hectic and there’ a lot going on just to remind herself and us that this world was not created for us to rest in and that we can only truly rest when we are in Jannah. I love it because it describes the nature of this life as well as reminds us to work hard for Jannah so we may finally be at rest. (via chador-lover)

huffadhulquran:

Understand, that when you memorize a poriton of the Quran, you are carrying a portion of the revelation with you. You should be mindful, Ya Ibaadullah, of what you have within your chest and ponder over it. The one who memorizes the Quran, and has something of it in his chest, but he does not ponder on it, nor does it prevent him from shameful acts, should see himself as deficient and disrespecting the kalaam of Allah that is within his heart.

Don’t think of the trials in your life (‘balaa’) as just a ‘test’ in the human form. Allah is not like a professor who hands you a test, moves away and just watches from afar to see how you’ll do. Allah is our murabee—the One who raises us with more mercy than a mother raises a child. The Prophet (pbuh) tells us that when Allah wills good for someone, he sends them ‘balaa’ (trials or tests). When Allah wills good for us, He purifies us. That is why each person is tested in what they love most. In other words our greatest possible ‘competitor’ in our love for God is what is withheld or must be sacrificed. This is the purification process because it cures the heart of competitors. Why was Prophet Ibrahim (AS) asked to slaughter the most beloved thing to him? Did Allah actually want him to *kill* his son? No. He didn’t kill his son. He killed the attachment. By being willing to sacrifice what he loved most, he had slaughtered any possible competing love. Allah was raising him, purifying him and elevating him. Allah tell us, “By no means shall you attain righteousness unless you give (freely) of that which you love.” (3:92)
