If you’re not doing it for Allah, then don’t expect any help from Allah.
— Omar Suleiman (via avaseofwords)
Maybe the soul is tired because all it needs more time with the Lord. Maybe the heart is tired because it has been fed with all the wrong things. Maybe the mind is tired because it hasn’t been nourished with beneficial knowledge.
So beautiful Masha’Allah…
Dear future wife, If you love me, don’t confess your love to me through haraam ways, This won’t please me and will instead drive me away! Love games don’t attract me. If you love me, have sabr and I will knock on your door when the time is right. Don’t give me privileges which I don’t deserve. Keep me away from you, and I will approach you. If you approach me, I will stay away from you. Don’t love me, for I want you ignorant in love. I want to teach you love when the right time comes and when you will be mine, Only when we are joined together under our Creator’s satisfaction! Don’t tell me what you feel, don’t give me from your time, don’t push me to lose you. I am a man who does not want to see the one he loves committing sins or to live a forbidden love behind her family’s back. I don’t want her to feel guilty and don’t want her heart to suffer. Put me under limits that I won’t cross, kill me inside you so I won’t grow to kill you inside me. Preserve what is beautiful inside you. I want you innocent, chaste, pure. I want you my love, but with Allah’s blessings and not shaytan’s whispering. And then, Only then, I will face everything and will be ready to go through difficulties to get you, Don’t be easy because then, I may not value you. Don’t love me now, so I won’t hate you! My heart wants you and doesn’t want to lose you. I don’t want you to be just a passing fancy for me, I want you a wife, a lover, the mother of my children, I want you to be the one I will spend my whole life with. How could I be a faithful man to you when I try to break your chastity? How would I be faithful to you if I push you to betray your family? How could I trust a love which grew under Allah’s wrath? To make you mine through nikaah is Islam’s way. Till then wait patiently and do not dismay. To love you means to protect you, To Love you is to bring you closer to Allah and HIS deen, To preserve you, not to kill what is beautiful inside you.
-Your Husband-to-be(Insha Allah!)

Let not one of you wish for death because of a misfortune which befalls him. If he cannot help doing so, he should say: ‘O Allah, keep me alive as long as You know that life is better for me, and make me die when death is better for me.
— Prophet Muhammad ﷺ Reported by Anas (RA) [Bukhari & Muslim] (via thepeacefulterrorist)
Knowledge is that which benefits, not that which is memorized.
Ketika kita perlu memilih. Pilihlah pilihan yang mendekatkan kita dengan Allah.

The way to happiness: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Scatter sunshine, forget self, think of others. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.
