do you ever wonder if anyone reads your blog like everyday just to check on you 

question of my life.

" You must be willing to change. You must be willing to break the deal you made with the devils within. You must be willing to leave the past and not be tempted to rebound when times are tough. You must be willing to let go of everything and anyone that takes you back to your sins. You must be willing to have hope. You must be willing to have hope that you can change and that you will and that you will be better. You must believe you are worthy of change and you are worthy of improvement and you are worthy of being the best. You must be willing to set aside your negative notions about life, about hardships, about people, about things, about yourself. You must be willing to stop feeling sorry for yourself while looking at the world move around you. Get up and make something of yourself. "

Your name is your culture. Your language is your history. Each letter is ingrained onto your skin. Say it, learn it, love it. Don’t change it.

Too many women going from “Khadija” to “Kelly. Stop. Our names are beautiful.

We’re stuck in the abyss
Of this living paralysis
The ghost sleeps aren’t enough
To keep us both awake
From the darkness
We’ve created
From stepping out into the light
Because the light is just 
An array of colours;
A spectrum that’s no longer ours
Because I wasted chances 
On my ego
Burning the bridges 
That was already burnt,
From the flames of my mind.
And now
The truth is that I’ve damaged
The only goods you’ll ever had. 
Memories burn in my mind 
As 2am speaks and scolds 
And my thoughts go fuzzy
At the sight of the moon’s waning
Holding secrets
And holding lethal hope
For we are only fools rushing in.
You are strong
And I’m fighting to find that strength.
Let’s stop chasing time
Before it’s too late.

I hope you're feeling okay. In response to your post, it's very true , somethings don't get fixed or get better- as cliche as it sounds , it's a blessing in disguise. Whatever is willed to happen will happen, remember all your affairs are in the hands of the Al-mighty, the Turner of hearts. He knows what your struggles are and knows what is best for you. Stay strong xx

JazakAllah khayrun for your sweet words, I honestly appreciate your message, I really needed it. :) 

You are quite right, when things don’t go the way you expect it or when things fall through, we shouldn’t ever underestimate our faith to Him - and ultimately accepting all good and bad He gives us for surely there is a good cause for everything. We should value tawakkul and understand that He will do what’s best for us InshAllah.

May Allah SWT bless your ruh, dunya and akhirah with goodness anon InshAllah. :) Lots of love <3

And sometimes you just have to accept the fact that things won’t get better no matter how much you want or try.

A sheikh gave a beautiful example of how short our lives are:

When we are born the first act of worship upon us is hearing the athaan and when we die the final act of worship upon us is janazah salaah.

Our lives basically take place between the athaan and salaah.

Needed this reminder

ummu-salmaa:

We must be strong women in this dunyah.
Strong in the we know our rights & fulfill our obligations. So that we don’t let anyone cross the line or try to force us to do what we don’t have to do.
It’s perfectly fine to be nice and sweet, but the minute someone tries to force you to do something that Allaah azza wa jalla from all the way above the seven skies did not make obligatory on you, you show them who’s boss.

"
  1. You are stronger than you realise.
  2. You are crueller than you realise.
  3. The smallest words will break your heart.
  4. You will change. You’re not the same person you were three years ago. You’re not even the same person you were three minutes ago and that’s okay. Especially if you don’t like the person you were three minutes ago.
  5. People come and go. Some are cigarette breaks, others are forest fires.
  6. You won’t like your name until you hear someone say it in their sleep.
  7. You’ll forget your email password but ten years from now you’ll still remember the number of steps up to his flat.
  8. You don’t have to open the curtains if you don’t want to.
  9. Never stop yourself texting someone. If you love them at 4 a.m., tell them. If you still love them at 9.30 a.m., tell them again.
  10. Make sure you have a safe place. Whether it’s the kitchen floor or the Travel section of a bookshop, just make sure you have a safe place.
  11. You will be scared of all kinds of things, of spiders and clowns and eating alone, but your biggest fear will be that people will see you the way you see yourself.
  12. Sometimes, looking at someone will be like looking into the sun. Sometimes someone will look at you like you are the sun. Wait for it.
  13. You will learn how to sleep alone, how to avoid the cold corners but still fill a bed.
  14. Always be friends with the broken people. They know how to survive.
  15. You can love someone and hate them, all at once. You can miss them so much you ache but still ignore your phone when they call.
  16. You are good at something, whether it’s making someone laugh or remembering their birthday. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that these things don’t matter.
  17. You will always be hungry for love. Always. Even when someone is asleep next to you you’ll envy the pillow touching their cheek and the sheet hiding their skin.
  18. Loneliness is nothing to do with how many people are around you but how many of them understand you.
  19. People say I love you all the time. Even when they say, ‘Why didn’t you call me back?’ or ‘He’s an asshole.’ Make sure you’re listening.
  20. You will be okay.
  21. You will be okay.

" As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good; I was actually being re-directed to something better. You must convince your heart that whatever Allah has decreed is most appropriate and most beneficial for you. "

Being told you’re appreciated is one of the simplest, yet incredibly uplifting things you can ever hear.
