Do not ask God to guide your footsteps if you’re not willing to move your feet.

nadirkeval:

Today, my dad’s uncle passed away. He had been sick for the past few years, and began to have trouble breathing yesterday. He passed in his sleep, alhamdulillah.

Last week, my close friend’s father passed away the day before he was going to permanently move from Egypt to Canada.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raajiuun.

Please keep both of them and our families in your dua. Jazakallahu khairun.

Getting married isn’t going to solve our inabilities to wake up for Fajr or get up for qiyam. We need to develop our own selves without expecting marriage to somehow magically change our lives. Marriage can be a great tool of self-improvement and can help us change for the best, with Allah’s will. Marriage is amongst the greatest blessings that Allah (swt) can bestow on a person; and the creation of a family, and taking care of that family, is amongst the greatest acts of worship. But if we are not personally working on ourselves now, how can we expect that it will be easier with the additional baggage of another individual who is also imperfect?

shi3atmuhammad:

it shocks the soul to think that those men who attacked az-zahra (sa) and stole leadership from al-murtadha (as) began their kufr years before the prophet (sawa) became ill, that they signed their kufr to paper in the shadows behind the ka’aba

and they dared raise sword and voice to the daughter who was the mother of her father

What makes the non-South Asian person’s use of the bindi problematic is the fact that a pop star like Selena Gomez wearing one is guaranteed to be better received than I would if I were to step out of the house rocking a dot on my forehead. On her, it’s a bold new look; on me, it’s a symbol of my failure to assimilate. On her, it’s unquestionably cool; on me, it’s yet another marker of my Otherness, another thing that makes me different from other American girls. If the use of the bindi by mainstream pop stars made it easier for South Asian women to wear it, I’d be all for its proliferation — but it doesn’t. They lend the bindi an aura of cool that a desi woman simply can’t compete with, often with the privilege of automatic acceptance in a society when many non-white women must fight for it.
