Israeli forces shot and unjustly murder 17 year old Nadim Nawara on the 66th anniversary of the Nakba west of Ramallah in West Bank (left of the recent picture that had been put in the spotlight- http://sparka-revolution.tumblr.com/post/85864103047/thebowspring-a-palestinian-protester-retaliates
Existence is Resistance
Freedom is near
Hope strengthens in the air
The best of our people are martyred
But liberty will never perish!☝️

Sitting in the masjid with some friends after Maghrib when a cute little girl comes behind me, and as I turn around I’m engulfed in the cuuutteesst, tightest hug! Clearly aware of how we’d all been taken by surprise, she plants a huge kiss on the cheek and sits in my lap. After getting to know her a little bit more I asked her why she came up to me like that and she said ‘because I love you’. 
Of course little Sara is living in her own little world and doing what every child does best- but its places like the masjid that beautiful moments always seem to happen. From spontaneous incidents, to just the general harmonious vibe, the masjid, the house of Allah, is truly a blessing. One which we tend to overlook. ♡

The best reminder i’ve read in a while. Beautiful mashaAllah:


لا تدع الناس يعرفون عنك سوى سعادتك! ولا يرون مــنك إلا ابتسامتك فإن ضاقت عليك ! ففي القرآن جنتك . . وإن المتك وحدتك فإلى السماء دعوتك ! وإن سألوك عن أخبارك !! فأحمد الله و أبتسـم
“Let not the people come to know except of your happiness, and let them not see except your smile. If life becomes constricted upon you, then within the Qur’an lies your orchard. If you feel curtailed and restricted, then to the heavens raise your call. And if they ask you of your affairs, then praise Allah and smile. 

وإذا رأيت نملة في الطريق فلا تدسها وابتغ بذلك وجه الله عسى أن يرحمك كما رحمتها” . . وتذكر أنها تسبح لله فلا توقف هذا التسبيح بقتلك لها
If you see an ant on the path, then do not crush it, and seek the Face of Allah thereby, so that He will have mercy on you like you had mercy on it, and remember that it glorifies Allah, so do not halt this glorification by killing it.

وإذا مررت بعصفور يشرب من بركة ماء فلا تمر بجانبه لتخيفه ” وابتغ بذلك وجه الله عسى أن يؤمنك من الخوف يوم تبلغ القلوب الحناجر
And if you pass by a bird drinking from the blessing of water, then do not pass close to it in case you startle it, and seek the Face of Allah thereby, so that He grants you safety from fear on the Day when hearts shall reach the throat.

وإذا اعترضتك قطة في وسط الطريق فتجنب أن تصدمها وابتغ بذلك وجه الله عسى أن يقيك الله ميتة السوء
And if you come across a cat in the middle of the road, then avoid hitting it, and seek the Face of Allah thereby, so that He protects you from an evil death.

واذا هممت بإلقاء بقايا الطعام فاجعل نيتك أن تأكل منها الدواب وابتغ بذلك وجه الله عسى أن يرزقك الله من حيث لا تحتسب
And if you want to throw out food, then make it your intention that animals can eat from it, and seek the Face of Allah thereby, so that He provides you from whence you do not expect.

وتذكر :~ افعل الخير مهما استصغرته فلا تدرى أى حسنة تدخلك الجنه
Do good, no matter how small it seems to you, because you do not know which good deed will enter you into Paradise.

واذا نويت نشرهذا الكلام انوى بها خير لعل الله يفرج لك كربه من كرب الدنيا والاخره
And if you wish to spread this statement, then intend good, so that Allah may relieve you of a trial from the trials of this world and the Hereafter.”
