Saw this beautiful snail today and thought of this Ayah “And there is no creature on earth but that upon Allah is its provision, and He knows its place of dwelling and place of storage. All is in a clear register.” Surah Hud verse 6 1/2)

After saying salam to a customer as they walked in to the store, the brother went on and said “hope uve not got long to go till you finish, not long till iftar”. I said we would finish soon bt had a work meeting after and so would be opening our fast at work today. To which he immedietly said, ” oh in that case let me drop you off some food for iftar “… . I was so happy in that moment. Two random strangers recognising eachother as muslims, conveyed
Peace and blessing to eachother, spoke as brothers , and the brother, with no hesitation, as if he had known me all my life, had concern for my iftari and offered to bring me food. I thanked him but explained we already had food arriving but thanked him. He smiled, we shook hands and said our salams. My heart jumped in happiness as i thought, “this is Islam, this is the Ummah of the Blessed Prophet Muhammed (saw), these are the blessings of Islam, this is the manifestation of our brotherhood and sisterhood” AllahuAkbar may Allah (swt) bless the brother and his family, thinking about this now brings a tear to my eye. Allahu Akbar ! #islam #Ramadhan #Brotherhood #Ummah #Blessings

The candles burn as the lips move in silent prayer.The hearts call out to the Creator as the eyes flow rivers.. #Gaza #BradfordGazaVigil

“Lie in the
bed you made.
Sleep beside
the monsters that
keep you company
these days.”

Oh wow, there are so many I love that I couldn’t possibly narrow it down to a favorite. One that comes to mind is this one by Rainer Maria Rilke: “Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.”

Prophet Muhammad on the Heart

وإن في الجسد مضغة إذا صَلَحَتْ صَلَحَ الجسدُ كله وإذا فَسَدَتْ فسدَ الجسدُ كله ألا وهي القَلْب

صحيح مسلم

Indeed in the body there is a lump of flesh, if it is good, the entire body will be good, and if it is corrupted, the entire body becomes corrupted, and that is the heart.

Sahih Muslim

Originally found on: hamszohor

(via theslave)

"And in the darkness of the night the believers meet with their Lord. Whispering their prayers which are carried by Angels to the throne of the Creator (swt). They converse, Creator and created, a conversation of mercy, compassion and blessings"

“They told me to pour my heart into everything I do. So that’s what I did, I poured and poured and poured. Now they ask me why I’m so empty.”
