A troublesome day will be soothed with the remembrance of Allaah; never forget that. Never forget that the same tongue that can utter dissatisfaction and frustration, should utter praises and gratitude. He knows best. This pain, this difficulty, this hardship is the bitter cure; sabr. What awaits you is sweetness.

"What?" and "I don’t get it" are literally and metaphorically my reactions to everything.

Al-Fudayl bin Iyaad said:

لا يبلغ العبد حقيقة الإيمان حتى يعد البلاء نعمة والرخاء مصيبة وحتى لا يحب أن يحمد على عبادة الله

A servant does not reach (taste, acquire) the reality of eemaan until he considers tribulation (calamity) to be a blessing and comfort (opulence) to be a calamity, and until he loves not that he should be praised for worship of Allaah.

Al-Siyar of al-Dhahabi (8/434).

There is no doubt that allowing for the women to mix freely with the men is the origin of every trial and evil; and it is from the greatest reasons for the descending of punishment which is general (encompassing everyone) just as it is from the reasons for corruption of the general and specific affairs. Mixing between men and women is the reason for increase of fawaahish (lewdness) and fornication; and it is from the reasons for general death and contagious diseases.

Not too strong, cardamom, mint, not too much sugar.

Alhamdulilaah I don’t! But certain people make me sneeze.


Okay? :)

chamomile: comfort movie?

I don’t have a comfort movie. Cheese really comforts me.

sugar, green tea and herbal, please ^_^

Aw, you’re so polite !

sugar: tell me about your first crush

  • It was my brother’s friend. Um. I never liked strawberries but when I found out they were his favourite, I started liking them. 

green tea: where do you feel most at peace?

  • In my mother’s lap hearing my father’s laugh being in the presence of my siblings. Or in my room.

  • I don’t think tumblr is ready for that quite yet.

Assalaam alaykum boo Oolong CUZ I'm nosy 🐸

Wa ‘aleykum asalaam, boo thang \! Lol, well it’s your day because these questions are for the nosy.

Oolong: what are you hoping to be doing in ten years?

This is such a difficult question. Like. I’m sitting here typing, deleting, typing, deleting, thinking. 

So here’s a general answer: I hope to be doing something beneficial for the Ummah and beneficial to myself (and family) first and foremost. I’d like to teach some aspects of the deen, I would hope to have improved the health policies in Sudan by then and to be part of an organization that focuses on improving living situations & health status of women + children mainly in Sudan. Inshaa’Allaah I would be doing something worthwhile and effective and you know, amazing.
