As-salaamu 'alaykum Allaa' :) Not sure if you got these ones: #9, #16

Wa ‘alykum asalaam wa rahmatullaah wa barakaatu, ukhtee fillaah. I hope you’re doing wonderful ♥

Let’s see, 9. What do you crave for desserts?

So long as it has chocolate or caramel (or both!), is not too sweet, and does not contain fruits, I will most likely crave it. To keep it simple: gooey chocolate chip cookies with a Nutella jar and a peanut butter + honey jar nearby. Yum!

16. Do you own any pets?

Not yet, inshaa Allaah in a few weeks I will get a kitten!

8, 15, 11, 3.

Hello there, I hope you’re doing well!

8. Do you still live with your folks?

Yes, but currently with my extended family.

15. Extrovert or Introvert?

More of an introvert but I am an extrovert around people who make me feel like home ♥

11. Would you rather die by fire or by ice?

Yikes! Interesting because I have lived in such freezing cold climates and extremely hot climates and I am definitely more adapted to the cold so I would say ice. But I hope I don’t die in any painful manner!

3. Do you support euthanasia? Yes or No? Give your reasons.

I do not because

Lol, sorry I’m not on a device that supports inserting a link. Thank you for the questions however ! Have a wonderful day.

Assalamualaikum sis!! 5, 15 and 20. :D

Wa ‘alykum asalaam wa rahmatullaah wa barakaatu, habibtee! How are you?

5. Do you like the school you’re going to? Yes or No? Give your reasons.

Hmm, I like some aspects of it but not all. I do like that it’s an all women’s university so there is no intermixing. I like what I am studying and the quality of the teaching. I don’t like how unorganized and complicated simple matters (registration) can be nor do I like the culture of littering and the unkemptness of some areas and parts of me don’t like that I still feel and am treated like a foreigner, although technically true.

15. Extrovert or Introvert?

More of an introvert but naturally around people who I am most comfortable with, I can be an extrovert.

20. Favourite TV shows?

Law & Order: SVU, Grey’s Anatomy, cartoon shows and reruns (Tom & Jerry, Hey Arnold, Rugrats).

Light and dark

This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows a variety of intriguing cosmic phenomena.

Surrounded by bright stars, towards the upper middle of the frame we see a small young stellar object (YSO) known as SSTC2D J033038.2+303212. Located in the constellation of Perseus, this star is in the early stages of its life and is still forming into a fully grown star. In this view from Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) it appears to have a murky chimney of material emanating outwards and downwards, framed by bright bursts of gas flowing from the star itself. This fledgling star is actually surrounded by a bright disc of material swirling around it as it forms — a disc that we see edge-on from our perspective.

However, this small bright speck is dwarfed by its cosmic neighbour towards the bottom of the frame, a clump of bright, wispy gas swirling around as it appears to spew dark material out into space. The bright cloud is a reflection nebula known as [B77] 63, a cloud of interstellar gas that is reflecting light from the stars embedded within it. There are actually a number of bright stars within [B77] 63, most notably the emission-line star LkHA 326, and its very near neighbour LZK 18.

These stars are lighting up the surrounding gas and sculpting it into the wispy shape seen in this image. However, the most dramatic part of the image seems to be a dark stream of smoke piling outwards from [B77] 63 and its stars — a dark nebula called Dobashi 4173. Dark nebulae are incredibly dense clouds of pitch-dark material that obscure the patches of sky behind them, seemingly creating great rips and eerily empty chunks of sky. The stars speckled on top of this extreme blackness actually lie between us and Dobashi 4173.
Assalaam Alaikum. I have a question and if you think this is uncomfortable to answer then that's alright! How does one stop them self from master bating? I randomly get the urges to do it, so it's nothing that leads me on to it. I even try distracting myself with the remembrance of Allaah but it doesn't work.. :(

Wa ‘alykum asalaam wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatu! I hope you are in the best of health and eemaan. Baarak Allaah feekum for taking the time to write up this question as I am certain such a topic may not be the easiest to discuss. Nonetheless, whether it is uncomfortable for me or not, I do hope that whatever advice I give it can at least make you feel more at ease.

First and foremost, keep in mind that Allaah ‘azza wa Jal does not burden a soul with that which is more than he can handle. This is an indication of the Mercy of Allaah in testing His slaves with what is within their capacity. In other words, you can handle it (you can overcome this trial). 

Suratul Baqarah: 286,

Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. “Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people.”

Subhan’Allaah, even after it is acknowledged that Allaah does not burden a soul with more than it can bear, the ayah includes a supplication for Allaah to NOT burden us with that which we have no ability to bear. So make du’aa that Allaah does not burden you with that which you can not bear and note that if you are burdened with a trial, it is within your capacity to overcome it. (that makes sense, yeah?)

This brings me to my second point which is to supplicate that Allaah eases matters for you and protects you from that which displeases Him and brings harm to your nafs (and body). Duaa is the weapon of a Believer and duaa is a means of worship. Too often we leave duaa as a last resort and we miss out on its fruits as we look for other means to overcome an obstacle. Allaah states in Suratul Ghaafir: 60,

And your Lord says, “Call upon Me; I will respond to you.” Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell [rendered] contemptible.

Furthermore, I advise you to increase in the remembrance of Allaah and to fear a heart that may be diseased if even after the remembrance of Allaah, the thoughts continue to linger on. When you think of Allaah, what comes to mind? Remind yourself that He is aware of what you conceal and hears your thoughts and feelings/emotions and is aware of all that which you do. Try to make yourself feel shame in having Allaah and the thought of sinning in the same thought.

Remind yourself of death, the destroyer of pleasures. Are you certain you will not die while committing such an act? What about the displeasure of Allaah you are earning. I don’t want to be too harsh but this is a reminder to all of us regarding all sins; we must fear Allaah and we must hasten to abandon sins. 

Each time you sin, repent. Don’t despair of the Mercy of Allaah and don’t allow the Shaytaan to fool you and lead you to believe Allaah will not forgive you. So long as you are sincere in your repentance, Allaah will forgive you. 

Also, please keep in mind that such an act is in response to the natural way your body is behaving. So, if you are able to get married, I would advise you as the Prophet (sallah Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) advised the youth,

"If any of you have the means to, he should get married, as it lowers the gaze and protects the private parts. Those who have not the ability to do so should fast, as it will be a shield for him." 

Recorded in Bukhaaree & Muslim.

Take heed of this naseeha as many of those who are unable to marry, are definitely able to fast and Allaah knows best. 

Some other things you can do is if you have your room to yourself, keep the door open. If you find yourself alone and tempted, tell yourself to exercise instead or bake something (eat or lose weight, win-win!).

I leave you with the beautiful and wise words (as always) that the Prophet Muhammad (sallah Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said to Mu’adh Ibn Jabal (radi’Allaahu ‘anhu) upon his journey to Yemen,

"Fear Allah wherever you are, and follow up a bad deed with a good one and it will wipe it out, and behave well towards people."

Also, please read. Have a blessed day. Sorry for the long answer. Any khair is from Allaah and any and all mistakes are from me. May Allaah ease matters for all of us and allow us to earn His pleasure rather than His displeasure and may Allaah protect us from the evils of this dunyah, the evils of the aakhirah, and have Mercy on us. Allaahumma ameen*



reblog if you hate 6th grade! the teachers are out to get you and everyone is changing :(

This made me laugh way too hard.

Why is this still so funny !

Yes, baarak Allaah feekum. This is somewhat similar to drinking sweet tea and eating sweets. If you eat the sweets and drink the tea, the tea ‘loses its sweetness’ . As you stated, it is all about perspective;  In order for one to truly acquire sweet patience, they must endure the bitter dunyah and if they seek the sweetness of this dunyah, patience will be bitter.

Be selfish. You reserve the right to think of yourself first and foremost. Concern yourself with yourself. Work on yourself to better yourself. Make it about you for once, make it about what you want, what you need, what you demand, what you expect, what you seek. What do you want. You. You are important. Be selfish. Please believe me when I say that it is more than okay, it is expected of you, to put yourself first. It’s fine to make it about you for once. It’s alright to speak and let others listen to you. Yes, let them know that for right now and maybe later and maybe even more than that, you are making it about you.

Such a small, small world!


More than 3 years ago, I met Allaa’ (nonchalante) on tumblr, and subhanAllaah, ever since, we just got close and well you never know what the days hold for you.

Today, as she was over at mine, we happened to know that her direct aunt (aka the aunt that is actually related to you, not that faaar faaar away Sudanese aunt lol) was a nurse at the oncology section where my sister was at (she had leukemia but is cured now alhamdulillaah).

Her aunt and my mom became friends for 2 years and it was so sweet to hear the memories they made.

It was so overwhelming to know this, subhanAllaah, I nearly cried. Anyways, now no one can be worried when I hang out with my (criminal) internet friend.

Subhaan Allaah, indeed Allaah is the best of planners. He planned for us to meet through the internet yet become such great friends alhamdulilaah, and join not just us but my aunt and your mother as well. I used to joke that every Sudanese person you meet, you’re most likely related to and I suppose for the most part it’s true. Anyways, please stop telling people in real life we met on the internet.
