Ibn Abbass said:
“Oh sinner, do not feel safe from the evil consequence of it (sin), and that which comes along with the sin is greater (in evil) than the sin: The minute amount of shyness you have from the one on you right and the one on your left while your committing sin is greater (in evil) than the sin; and your laughing while you don’t know what Allah will do with you is greater (in evil) than the sin; and your happiness with sin when you commit it is greater (in evil) than the sin; and your sadness over sin when it (the chance to commit sin) passes you, is greater (in evil) than the sin; and your fear of the wind when it moves the door which veils you when your committing the sin, and your heart is not disturbed (by the fact) that Allah sees you is greater (in evil) than the sin.
Beware! Do you know what the sin of Ayyoub was for which Allah tested him in his body with severe sickness and by the depletion of his wealth? A poor man sought his help against an oppressor, so that he might repel the oppressor. So he(Ayyoub) did not help him, nor did he prohibit the oppressor from his oppression. So Allah tested him.”
--Imaam Ibnul Qayyim al Jawziyyah Al Jawaab ul Kaafy li man sa’ala ‘an ad-daa ish Shaafi
‘Statements cannot be correct except with actions; Statements and actions cannot be correct except with an intention; and statements, actions and an intention cannot be correct except according to the Sunnah.’
- Hasan Al Basri
A man insulted Khalid ibn Walid, so he turned to him and said, “It is your scroll of deeds, so fill it with whatever you wish.
--Khalid ibn al-Waleed (via thepathofabeliever)
Can you stop time? Time is revolving and eroding our existence. The movement of time is an erosion of our existence in this Dunya. It is ripping away and tearing apart from our own existence with every second that passes by. It is taking part of us. We do not belong here and we need to believe in the fact that we do no belong here and we need to prepare for death.
Why we hate death
The Khalifah Sulaiman ibn Abdul Malik went to the Scholar Abu Haazim and asked: “How come we hate death?” Abu Haazim replied: ” Because you constructed your Dunya and you destroyed your Aakhirah. So you hate to go from what is constructed to what is destroyed.”

proud-muslimahs asked: love your blog! you are an inspiration :) please follow us :)
Shukran for your kind words! I followed you, looking forward to some great content from you.
The logic behind, “If you’re going to have a boyfriend, you shouldn’t wear hijab” doesn’t work anymore than the logic behind, “If you’re going to lie, you shouldn’t pray Salaah.” We all sin and being sinners doesn’t somehow magically excuse or disqualify us from following God’s commandments.
Wearing hijab is not a trophy you get once you have accomplished “perfect Imaan status”; it much rather is a single step in a long journey towards that common goal we all have.
Read. Short read, I promise.
