الرحيم

ibtasem:

I have done horrible things
and displeased Him.
I have wronged my soul
through all my sins.

And yet He lets me
stay in this world
giving me blessings
I don’t even deserve.

Then how can someone
not be grateful to Him,
The All-Merciful, Ar-Rahim?

storiesofthesahabah:

Alhamdulillah.

I have decided to narrate some of the most inspiring love stories that no Tristan and Isolde or Romeo and Juliet can match in equality nor surpass, yes, the love stories of the greatest people that ever walked upon the earth, the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum.

When we hear them, we always think of their bravery, their faith, their good character, so much of beauty in them and so now, I want to increase that inspiration we get from them by sharing their soft side, their hearts towards their spouses.

I think its time for us to give a fresh way of inspiring our youth, with a sprinkle of halal love stories.

I personally believe that with the help of increasing the awareness by telling our sisters, or our brothers or our children about the love stories of the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum would actually help them change their perspective in “love” and I mean for a spouse, we have to really let them understand why there is no girlfriend-boyfriend concept in Islam, and with these stories I believe it will make them understand it in a way that we penetrate not their minds but their hearts by inspiring them.

I believe we have to deliver the reality of the concept of marriage in islam, through a way of how these novel writers, movie directors do, that from these “dying for the one you love, going to romantic places when you’re not even married to him or her” we present the “dying is only for Allah, we can only go to romantic places when we are halal certified couple” that through these hearts will not be broken from an illusion made by desire and lust.

In sha Allah I will be sharing one “long excerpt” every week.

And we pray Allah Azza Wa Jall helps us reach the hearts of our youth, the way these novel writers and movie writers did with them.

Amin

Zohayma

“They call us now.
Before they drop the bombs.
The phone rings
and someone who knows my first name
calls and says in perfect Arabic
“This is David.”
And in my stupor of sonic booms and glass shattering symphonies
still smashing around in my head
I think “Do I know any Davids in Gaza?”
They call us now to say
Run.
You have 58 seconds from the end of this message.
Your house is next.
They think of it as some kind of war time courtesy.
It doesn’t matter that
there is nowhere to run to.
It means nothing that the borders are closed
and your papers are worthless
and mark you only for a life sentence
in this prison by the sea
and the alleyways are narrow
and there are more human lives
packed one against the other
more than any other place on earth
Just run.
We aren’t trying to kill you.
It doesn’t matter that
you can’t call us back to tell us
the people we claim to want aren’t in your house
that there’s no one here
except you and your children
who were cheering for Argentina
sharing the last loaf of bread for this week
counting candles left in case the power goes out.
It doesn’t matter that you have children.
You live in the wrong place
and now is your chance to run
to nowhere.
It doesn’t matter
that 58 seconds isn’t long enough
to find your wedding album
or your son’s favorite blanket
or your daughter’s almost completed college application
or your shoes
or to gather everyone in the house.
It doesn’t matter what you had planned.
It doesn’t matter who you are
Prove you’re human.
Prove you stand on two legs.
Run.”

Q

Anonymous asked:

Does Israel have the right to exist?

A

pax-arabica:

No.

Any nation that necessitates:

A) That millions of refugees live in squalor all over the world.

B) The maintenance of a brutal occupation.

C) The engagement in ethnic cleansing and gerrymandering.

To maintain it’s “national character” is a nation that does not deserve to exist.

Why should it exist at our expense? Are we not also human?
