  2. Anonymous asked: Who is your hero and why?

    My hero is Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu alaihi wasallam, because he is the perfect example of a man. He was patient, he was kind, he showed mercy when mercy needed to be shown and he showed severity where severity was needed. He was generous, humble and well-spoken. Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala, mentions in the Holy Qur’an with regards to his Messenger, “And surely you are of an exalted character” (Qur’an 68:4). Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu alaihi wasallam, was not only a Prophet but a Messenger of Allah, he was a guide, a leader, a politician, a judge, a jury, a soldier, a commander, a family man… he was every great characteristic combined into one man. It’s for all of these reasons why I, and every Muslim, love Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

    Most of you have probably already read this, but this is so, so important. I think it’s a damn shame that the name of the Aurora shooter or the marathon bombers is common knowledge but not the name of this brave young man.

    His father said that, “He made his mother cry, but he saved hundreds of mothers from crying for their children.”

    I can’t imagine such pure selflessness. I remember when I was 15, and I couldn’t have done something like this. I don’t think I’m even this selfless now.

    Young heroes like Aitzaz and Malala give me hope for Pakistan, and the world. They’re the change that we need. They’re the people who you should judge Islam by, not the extremists. I know I don’t have that many followers, but please, for anyone who reads this today, spare a moment to think about this young hero and his grieving family.

  4. This is my absolute favourite place to pray Dhuhr. It’s so unbelievably peaceful praying beneath a big old tree with the warm sun shining through the branches that are filled with birds chirping away happily. Alhamdulillah, creation is a marvellous thing!


  5. "when you turn thirteen and want to paint your nails black
    I’ll rummage through an old drawer and give you my own polish.
    when you look at me and say, “momma, I’m lost.”
    I’ll turn you towards the mirror
    and say, “run darlin’, don’t ever let them find you.”

    when the first day of high school comes
    and you hurry to get out of the car with nerves in hand I’ll tell you,
    “don’t run, walk slow. you’ll make it through.”
    when you go on your first date I’ll remember my first date.
    I’ll remember the look on my own mother’s face
    when he didn’t open my car door
    and baby, if he doesn’t open the car door remember your momma saying, “he doesn’t get to open anything else either.”

    one day that boy will break your heart
    and when you lock yourself in your room
    I’ll buy you a journal, a brand new pen, a 2 liter of strawberry soda
    and a potted violet with a note saying something like,
    “white oleanders are poisonous and so is heartache.
    violets symbolize something that I’ve since forgotten
    and strawberry soda drowns the salt in your tears.”

    one day you’ll pack your things,
    I’ll write you letters and send you candles in the mail.
    you’ll marry young or maybe old.
    you’ll have a daughter of your own and watch the sun rise in her eyes.
    just remember to never look up what violets symbolize
    and when she looks at you with tears in her eyes
    saying, “momma, I’m lost.”
    turn her towards the mirror
    and say, “run darlin’, don’t ever let them find you.”

    — and when they say you’re too much soul for one person,
    remember the white oleanders. remember how their poison makes them beautiful/d.a.h (via whisperingbones)

  14. "
    1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

      2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

      3. erase processed food from your diet. start with no lollies, chips, biscuits, then erase pasta, rice, cereal, then bread. use the rule that if a child couldn’t identify what was in it, you don’t eat it.

      4. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

      5. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

      6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

      7. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

      8. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

      9. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

      10. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

      11. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

      12. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

      14. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

      15. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

      16. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.

  15. First summer as a Muslim, also first summer as a Hijabi. It’s 37 Celsius, the air com in my car is broken and I have two hours of driving to do today.

    The only thing that keeps me going is the thought that Jahannam is hotter than a Perth summer! (And the fact that my air con will be fixed on Thursday inshallah…)
