“I want to know you. You seem like someone worth knowing. Every day I feel like I’m surrounded by people with hard edges and sour faces but I get the sense that you’re different. Too often people seem to think that they have the answers to everything. Their faces are trapped in permascowls and they can’t be bothered with anything besides their own narcissism. You aren’t like that. You still ask questions. You’re still looking for the answers.”—Ryan O’Connell, I Want To Know You
for all those Muslimahs bearing the scorching heat this summer in full hijab, I pray that God blesses you immensely and continues to elevate your status in His eyes. And for those Muslimahs who are very close to wearing it this summer, I pray that Allah blesses you immensely and provides you with much wisdom and patience in your endless journey. And for all those Muslimahs who are still struggling to find reasons to approach the physical hijab, I pray that Allah blesses you immensely as well, protecting and guarding you as He raises your level of faith by degrees and degrees.
We all got this inshaAllah. Keep going; I love you.
“If you cannot be of the poor, then be with the poor. If you cannot be with the poor, then pray with the poor. And if you cannot pray with the poor, then pray for the poor. Beyond this there remains not an atom’s weight of faith.”—(via astoldbymarjam)
You know that moment when you’re reading a book and you just have to stop and bite your lip and squeal or sigh or close your eyes and wrinkle your nose and forehead and press the book against your heart and just like sit there and try to soak up the gorgeous literature via osmosis?
We were talking about hijab and how most people don’t think I’m “religious enough” and I got this reply:
“No one is any “more religious” than the other because you can’t dig into someone’s soul and understand their connection with God and frankly physical appearance does not hint at what is in someone’s heart, so that is ignorant bullshit.”
