“In marriage it’s not an agreement to do life with the person they are on your wedding day, it’s a decision to marry who they are then, who they are now and who they will be.” #coffeedate
Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous. — Albert Einstein, The World As I See It (via feellng)
No one ever tells you that people will leave your life, unannounced. Sometimes they leave the earth, sometimes they just leave you. Things continue. Tomorrow you will wake up and the sun will be kissing your eyelids and it will be a new day for you to drink too much coffee and reread an old book. You will be okay. No one ever tells you that, either. Days will melt together like some candle you burned down to scraps, and seasons will change. You will fall in and out of love with yourself more times than you’ll ever be able to count. It is important to take the time to appreciate your own fingerprints, your own skin. There will be days when it is all you have. — never forget to be kind to yourself. (via splitterherzen)

A believer rolls in five types of light: There is light from where he comes; there is light from where he leaves; there is light in his knowledge; there is light in his speech and there is light in him on the Resurrection Day. — Amirul Mo’minin Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (ع) al-Khisal p. 448, h. 20 (via loveofahlulbayt)

Anonymous said: Salam Alaykom Hala! I need to ask, during your pregnancy, did you drink coffee/tea? I'm absolutely obsessed with green tea and vanilla lattes and other types of coffee.. I don't know what I'll do during pregnancy :S Is DECAF actually safe for the baby?! Because I heard it still contains a little amount of caffeine & I don't want to hurt my little one. :( Also, what types of duas, food, tips could you give me? I'd appreciate it so much dear!
I used to have a small cup of coffee with milk almost every morning! On other days I would opt for some chai tea. I never did decaf, just natural coffee but small quantities. Talk to your doctor; each pregnancy/person is different. I think as long as you keep your intake at a minimum, you should be okay.
This book, chapter 6 and forward has great tips on what to eat and duas for each semester from an Islamic perspective.
Congratulations and may Allah grant you a safe and beautiful pregnancy! <3
Anonymous said: Salam! I'm not sure if you'll read this message but I want to let you know that last year I was going through a difficult time and my depression was getting the best of me when I discovered your blog. I would spend hours going through the pages, reading your posts, and remembering how good it must feel to be a humble servant of God. In the past year, I gained motivation to change a lot of aspects of my life and I want to thank you for running this blog. May God bless you and your family.

Sometimes you will meet certain people who will be able to open you up. You will leak all over them, and they may not be able to handle it. Do not apologise. Leak as much as you want, but never apologise if they are unable to swim in your sea; in your love, in your trust, in your softness. — Zaeema Hussain, “Your tenderness should be valued” (via zjhussain)
The human being resembles a tree;
your root is a covenant with God:
that root must be cherished with all one’s might.
A feeble covenant is a rotten root, without grace or fruit.
Though the boughs and leaves of the date palm are green,
greenness brings no benefit if the root is corrupt.
If a branch is without green leaves, yet has a good root,
a hundred leaves will put forth their hands in the end — Rumi

ISIS executes 1,500 Shi’as in one day on Eid. Go on. Keep scrolling. Don’t speak up. Stay silent. You aren’t Shi’a so why should you care, they aren’t coming after you. Not yet anyway. But one day they will come to kill your sons and rape your daughters, and no one will be left to speak up for you.
