"They say that if God loves you, He will let you live a long life, but I wish that He loved me a little less. I wish that I didn’t live long enough to see my country in ruins."

This is so important I can’t even put it into words. 
Not all Christians are closed minded assholes.
Not all Muslims are terrorists.
Not all atheists are anti-religion jerks.


This is important

Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do the hearts find rest.

[Quran, Al Raad 13:28]


For the last two days in al-Khalil (Hebron), Israeli soldiers have shot tear gas at schoolchildren at the Salaymeh checkpoint. Yesterday, two tear gas canisters were shot at the children, one of which was fired directly at them instead of an arc (to lower the impact velocity).This practice is extremely dangerous and can cause death or severe injuries. Today, one tear gas grenade was thrown and four tear gas canisters were shot, one after another, at high speeds towards the children leaving school.

My aunt sent over so many new baati’s from Somalia, and I obviously called dibs in the best ones. I love my family in Somalia




So precious

Ibn al-Qayyim, Madaarij as-Salikeen (Ranks of the Wayfarers), 2/338. (via alongcamenad)
Whoever has offended you and then approached you to apologize, humility obligates that you accept his apology whether it is truthful or not, and that you leave his secret thoughts to Allah. The sign of generosity and humility is that if you notice a defect in his apology, you do not address it nor hold him against it.
