When the night is completely dark, it finds them [the people of taqwah] staying up in the night; fear has chased away their sleep, so they stay up, while those who feel secure in this life quietly sleep on. — Abdullah ibn Mubarak

If you can’t say “bismillah” (out loud or inside) before an action, you most likely shouldn’t be doing it anyway. — Abdulbary Yahya

“Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” – John Wooden

When you’re up to nothing,
God is up to something.
The faithful see the invisible,
Believe the incredible,
And then receive the impossible.

‘Things aren’t always as they seem. Umm Musa was told to throw her son in the river, Yusuf was left for dead in a well, Maryam delivered a child alone, Yunus was swallowed by a whale, Ibrahim was thrown in the fire and Umm Salamah thought no one could be better than Abu Salamah. Yet look at how it turned out for them in the end. So don’t worry, Allah has a plan for you.” – AmatuAllah

“All things in life start small and then grow bigger: humans, animals, projects, movements — everything. Everything except calamities, which start big and then grow smaller. So be patient, and know that things will get better; for with every difficulty comes ease, with every difficulty comes ease…” ♥

From Hanaa:

“If you want something in your life and you aren’t praying tahajud for it then in reality you don’t really want it” – Shaykh Yasir Qadhi

Four things do not come back – the spoken word, the sped arrow, the passed life and the missed opportunity. — It’s the last 10 days, let’s seize them insha’Allah ♥

 [Name] is dodging words and has her eyes on the sky. This is a month of prayer, dua and tear filled eyes ♥ ♥

From Hind E.

You never had a clue ♥

Just when it seems like your world is crashing down on you
He was there helping you up, yet you never had a clue
When it feels like everyone is against you
He was there by your side it’s true, yet you never had a clue
Every time you shed a tear and it always seemed to stay
He was there to wipe it away, yet you never had a clue
Difficulty that left you hopeless and lost
He was there to help without any cost, yet you never had a clue
When no one seemed to listen and care
He was there listening to every word you said I swear, yet you never had a clue
Scared and afraid all you could do was pray
He was there reassuring you it was going to be okay, yet you never had a clue
God loves you for you and not who you pretend to be
Pray and ask Him for you will surely see
Allah the Most Merciful the Most Kind
Has the solution to all the problems of mankind
Wa salatu wa salam 3ala sayidina Mohammad

“All things in life start small and then grow bigger: humans, animals, projects, movements — everything. Everything except calamities, which start big and then grow smaller. So be patient, and know that things will get better; for with every difficulty comes ease, with every difficulty comes ease…” ♥

“Remember when getting high meant swinging at the playground, the worst thing that you could get from the opposite sex was cooties, your worst enemies were your teachers or siblings, race issues was who ran the fastest, war was a card game, the only drug you knew was cough medicine, the only thing you smoked were the tires on your bike, the only thing that hurt was skinned knees and the only thing that got broken were your toys. Life was simple, but what I remember the most was wanting to grow up…”
-atachidman

“Whenever He Spoke It Reminded Me Of A Rap Song;  Ignorant Ranting With No Point That Should Include A Parental AdvisoryS ticker.”  – Br. Tariq

<< As the summer months roll up it gets more and more difficult to manage as the clothes roll up as well. We all know the routine:
“Lower the gaze! Lower the gaze! Lower the gaze!”
 But, if the heart is not lowered in awe of Allah’s magnificence and His tremendous bounties, then how can we expect the eyes to lower? >> -Imam Suhaib Webb

“If all the tears collected of this Ummah were put together, we could offer clean water for millions. Don’t cry and die – cry and work, cry and pray, cry and succeed, for indeed the Gardens of Truth are for the predators and ones who use their tears as fuel to change. Heaven was not made for those who merely believe, but for those who work. So work and Allah (swt) knows best).”

If Umar feared failure…
If Khadija had never asked…
If Uthman feared wealth…
If Salman wasn’t confident…
And if in the face of death, Bilal had given up…

Who would have taken our Ummah to the next level?

“I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being, first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.” – Malcolm X
