Some people could be going through so much more than what you see..
They could be crying themselves to sleep, when all they show you is a smile..
There could be so much more going on..
Ya Allah, I don’t know their problems, but You do.
Ya Allah, grant them patience to endure their troubles and forgive them for their sins, Ameen.
إذا عرفت نفسك فلا يضرك ما قيل فيك
“If you know yourself, then you’ll not be harmed by what is said about you.”
— Imam Sufyan Al Thawri (via cavum)
SAY: “If all the sea were ink for my Lord’s words, the sea would indeed be exhausted before my Lord’s words are exhausted, even if we were to add to it sea upon sea.”

Sometimes Sabr and silence is better than expressing how you really feel.

Something has really been testing my patience in the last little while, and I’ve realized that the test has been more difficult whenever my faith became weak and I wasn’t as diligent in maintaining a connection and relationship with Allah. What I’ve learned from and been reminded of through this is that in order for me to find peace of heart and mind, and in order for me to achieve success in patience and in acquiring what I’m looking for, I must place my greatest efforts towards my relationship with Allah, and trust in Him to handle the matters of my life that are not in my control. Sure, He may already do that through His limitless generosity and love, but wouldn’t it be wiser to kiss the Hand of the One who feeds you than to bite it?
