A teacher, a leader, a martyr… Oh my lord, you grant those who refine themselves great positions in this world and the next, grant us self refinement and guidance in your path.
Oh My Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things that I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

What is marriage but the discovery of a best friend, companion, soul mate in the one who is now your family? What is marriage but pillow-fights, and sleeping in, and teasing, and arguing, and telepathically communicating, and often misunderstanding, but always forgiving and constantly cherishing every laugh, every tear? What is marriage but the discovery of your guide to jannah, and may you be their guide. Ameen. May your closeness bring you closer to Him, azza wa jal. May your heart find contentment and your soul find peace. Ameen. What is marriage, but a journey… With your best friend… A journey to jannah. And what a beautiful destination that is.

I want to be in the harram.
It’s easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their present and their past, but you’d be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often then not, it’s lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul.
