“Some of us like to avoid talking about difficulties. We want to make Islam seem as easy as possible as if its rainbows and butterflies. But that’s not true. It is the greatest blessing to be guided by Allah to this perfect deen, and it definitely does not come easy. Nothing valuable ever does. But if we create a false idea of it, then the people who feel pain, who feel despair or sadness, who find it hard at times, will think there is something wrong with their faith. And that’s not true, it is okay to hurt. It is okay to open up about it. It shouldn’t be seen as a sign of weak faith, because its far from that. If you feel pain, if you feel trials and tests, that’s when you’ve began to discover the depth there is to Islam. That is when you find a new degree of beauty in it. That’s when you begin to taste the sweetness of this faith, without the need to sugarcoat it.” Anusha: It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.  (via passionate-opinions)

“He’s not just sexy when he takes his shirt off or when he smirks at me seductively. He’s sexy when he teases me, when he shakes his head at my foolishness, when he gets up to get me a glass of water. I find these things sexy because it’s HIM doing these things… And everything he does arouses my affection and makes me want to show it to him. He’s not a perfect person, but he is mine. And I’m proud and I’m blessed and I’m extremely lucky he’s so sexy to me.” Within this Soul (via passionate-opinions)

“Show love and appreciation in the way the receiver wants to see it. Don’t buy flowers for a sick friend if they don’t like plants. Don’t buy a mug for your dad on father’s day if he doesn’t like to see money being wasted. Don’t set up a candle-lit dinner for a spouse that’s in a hurry to get to their night-shift on time. Be realistic. Love isn’t just a feeling - it’s an expression. And the way it’s expressed has the greatest impact on the message you’re giving - including how much you love somebody. ‘Cause let’s face it, if you love them, you’ll work hard to understand what they truly want from you. And then you’ll do just that.” Within this Soul (via passionate-opinions)

“You lost hope because you saw only your sins, but could not see what was greater: His mercy. You felt trapped because you saw only the storm, but could not see what was stronger: His refuge.” Yasmin Mogahed (via fallenpeach)

Isn’t it funny how people get mad at you for rejecting them? And then you lose all respect for them because they don’t even realize what a douche they’re being, and the utter preposterity of their proposition. Hilarious.

Heard it’s for a great cause, but this is very important. 😐

In California, you have to pay a 500$ fine(apart of the Water Conservation Act) if you participate in the ASL challenge! Because we’re in..the middle..of a…drought. #california

Yeah, people don’t always think. Can you believe celebs in Ghana are doing this? While we ain’t all starving in the GH, their are children who need good clean water and food. Not to mention the Ebola outbreak in Africa. Just saying.
