Nasihah: Sincere Advice

IslamicAdvice
In the placidity of the night, enveloped in the manifest darkness of midnight. Amidst crickets speaking and the gentle snores of sleepers, the sincere Believer stands, heart in hand, blinded by tears, conversing with their Lord. "Ya Rabb, Ya Mujib, O my Lord, the One who responds, I call upon You and only You. Ya Mujib, please make it easy for me to wear the hijab, so that I may attain your pleasure and gain nearness to You, give me the strength to adorn the hijab, to remain consistent, and to honor it. And forgive me when I transgress, Ya Rabb

Oh travelers​ of this world

IslamicSpirituality
The fragility of this life is unquestionably an unnerving thought, at any given moment, any one of us will be face to face with angel Azrael. Just like that, the perfect house, you worked so endlessly to achieve, your beloved wife and sweet children, are an illusion, and you are alone answering to the Lord of the Universe. Yet it is also this very fact that makes life so profoundly precious. Every moment, every person, every encounter, is suddenly so much more, everything is filled, with spirit and pure love. I am deeply grateful for every second, every day, every

Anger 

IslamicFaithAdviceReflection2s
“So whatever you have been given is but (a passing) enjoyment for this worldly life, but that which is with God (Paradise) is better and more lasting for those who believe and put their trust in their Lord. And those who avoid the greater sins, and illegal sexual intercourse, and when they are angry, they forgive.” (Quran 42:36 & 37) The childhood I recall is one, with an abundance of laughter, love, toys every other week, all in all, AllhumdulilAllah. I did not suffer any traumatic event, I lived (and still do), comfortably, in a safe neighborhood. But like most

"It was then i came to the realization: our society teaches us to be obsessed with appearance." - Na'ima B. Robert (excerpt from, From my sister's lips) A typical saturday morning, I woke up, made my breakfast, made my coffee and sat down with the book I'm currently reading and today I came across this particular line. It really hit home, and I knew I would have to make a post about this. There is so much truth, so much significance enclosed in such a simple and obvious observation, "Society teaches us to be obsessed with appearance." This is an

I marvel at this universe and the beauty which can be found in everything. This universe as temporary as it as, as heartbreaking and unsettling as it can get, among the blood and tears, there's delicacy and beauty. Perfection and absolute, everlasting happiness is not meant for this life, its beyond the scope of mere human capability. This might sound discouraging, whats the point you might wonder. What is the point, when no matter what, we will face hardships, we will lose loved ones, our eyes will remain moist from grief? The point is to endure, to strive, to have

The future

IslamicFaithAdviceReflections
Assalamualikum darlings So lately I've been stuck on what my next post should be. I have several topics in mind but I was so overwhelmed I wasn't quite sure where exactly to begin. But I recently had numerous conversations about something that I felt would make an interesting read. The future... Did you feel a chill? Debating on whether or not you should continue reading? It's a frightening thing to discuss I know but nonetheless, it's inevitable. Why does it distress us much? You see no matter how much we plan and equip ourselves for the times to come, it's

And so begins another year…

IslamicSpirituality
    Oh I know what you're all thinking, "another post about how beautiful 2015 was, more resolutions, how boring."  Well you're quite right, this post is going to discuss MY year, but it certainly wasn't ALL beautiful. Why, it had some rather ugly parts. The year 2015 was a myriad of pain, tears, heartbreak, nervous breakdowns and in between it all laughter, englightment, understanding, and most importantly peace. This was the year I ended high school, I took a major step in my faith by wearing hijab, I rediscovered my love for writing and books, I truly understood the
