Blessed is he whose own faults keep him from seeing the faults of others
— Ali ibn Abi Talib (ra)
اثنان لا تذكرهما أبداً: إساءة الناس إليك و إحسانك للناس
Two things never to mention: people’s unkindness to you and your kindness to people.
— Unknown (via allmuslimah)
A special prayer for all those who are suffering in silence, those who keep smiling yet are struggling to cope. May the Almighty bless you!

Is reading music/songs lyrics same as listening to them ? Is it haraam ? Thank u
I am not sure if reading song lyrics is similar to listening to them, but in my opinion reading is more than just listening..
I am not in a place to say that something is haram or halal, but personally i think that if the song can waver our aqidah or waste our time, then it is best to leave it. We can always replace songs with nasyeeds or recitations of the Qur’an. :)
Correct me if i am wrong, ya..
Allah yubaarik feek :)
My mind and heart are at war and battle because of you.
Not once did Allah say, “worry about it,” “stress over it”. But He clearly said, “Trust me.”

Equal to a Mosquito’s Wing
Sahl bin Sa’d narrated that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “If the world to Allah were equal to a mosquito’s wing, then He would not allow the disbeliever to have a sip of water from it.” (Hasan) [Chapters on Zuhd: Jami At-Tirmidhi]
This hadith means that whatever good things of the world Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has given to those who deny His attribute of Oneness, as well as the Prophethood of His beloved Messenger, He has given those things to them because the world, as a whole, is entirely insignificant and valueless before Him.
We should not be fooled by what the Kuffar or Munafiqeen have of the luxuries of this world, for they have no share of anything good in the Hereafter. Another hadith informs us that the world compared to the Hereafter is like a drop compared to an ocean. So what we should be concerned about is that we get the blessings and comforts and luxuries of the ocean, for that is what really counts.

how can a lowly being such as myself even dare utter your name with pride when I know I fail you daily? and yet you forgive, you forgive, you forgive. so graciously, so mercifully, no matter how many times I forget.
