Isn't it time you turned back to Allah?


أيها المقيم على الخطايا والعصيان، التارك لما أمرك الرحمن، المطيع للغويّ الفتان، إلى متى أنت على جرمك مصرّ، ومما يقرّبك إلى مولاك تفرّ؟ تطلب من الدنيا ما لا تدركه، وتتقي من الآخرة ما لا تملكه، لا أنت بما قسم الله من الرزق واثق، ولا أنت بما أمرك به لاحق.يا أخي، الموعظة، والله لا تنفعك، والحوادث لا…

"Ja’far ibn Burqan reported: I said to a man from Basra, “How can one of us continue to kneel before his Lord seeking his forgiveness for a sin, then he returns to it, then again he seeks forgiveness, then again he returns to it?” It was mentioned to Al-Hasan Al-Basiri and he said, “Satan wishes for you to think like this, so do not be discouraged from seeking forgiveness.”"

The grave of a righteous man


Ibrahim bin Bashaar narrated this story:

"While I was walking towards Kufah with Ibrahim bin Adham, he stopped beside a grave and invoked Allah to have mercy on its dweller. "Whose grave is this,’ I asked.

'It is the grave of Humaid bin Jaabir,' said Ibrahim. 'He was once the leader of all…

Today I turn 20. I started this blog with my dear friend 4 years ago! Time flies subhan’Allah.

Shout out to all 50,000+ followers who I know (at least a large portion of) who take the time out to learn a little a bit about a faith and way of life that many are trying to portray incorrectly! I respect you all very much, Muslim or not, and hope that people continue to have the zeal to learn, whether it be a Muslim wanting to learn more about their own faith, or a person who is just taking the time out to learn about a way of life. We must all remove ourselves from the darkness of ignorance. Life is too short for that.

When starting this blog, I genuinely didn’t know it would have such an impact. Yes I know, it’s only tumblr (sorry tumblr) and it’s not like I have millions of people following me, but to know that even one life has been affected is enough. May God accept our efforts. This blog has been a means for many to accept Islam-may Allah keep you all firm and sincere (you know who you all are), and I love you all for the sake of Allah.

If you don’t already know me then please message me! I don’t bite, I’m literally a young (well not so young any more) female student sitting behind my laptop in London.

And as for you all who have asked questions, please bear with me. A lot of the questions I have received are similar so I intend to answer them in groups. The questions I answer are mainly Islam related questions pertaining to the teachings of the faith, as well as current issues.
As for specific personal islamic questions/opinions, or questions about myself, I do not tend to answer these, especially not on anon-you may have realised this since very few people actually know a lot about me. And I intend to keep it that way so sorry for any anons waiting for those answers!

And finally, please all of you keep me in your prayers. I pray that God guides us all to the straight path and unites us all in Jannah (Heaven). May God bless you all!

"وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ وَنَعْلَمُ مَا تُوَسْوِسُ بِهِ نَفْسُهُ ۖ وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيدِ
“And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein.”"
– Qur’an, Surah Qaf (50:16)

"O you who sold yourself for the sake of something that will cause you suffering and pain, and which will also lose its beauty, you sold the most precious item for the cheapest price, as if you neither knew the value of the goods nor the meanness of the price. Wait until you come on the Day of mutual loss and gain and you will discover the injustice of this contract."
– Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah (rahimahullah)

"I know of nothing more useful to you than four matters: surrender to Allah, to humbly entreat Him, to think the best of Him, and to perpetually renew your repentance to Him, even if you should repeat a sin seventy times in a day."
Ibn Ata’illah (via poeticislam)
