I lost track.

IHSAN. Excellence. Striving for it. 

This word has been on my mind for the past week. I want to understand it better, to know what Allah swt wants out of me in all that I am.

"[Ihsan is] to worship God as though you see Him, and if you cannot see Him, then indeed He sees you."

Struggling for excellence, in our ever imperfect human souls.

Ya Allah, grant him and his family peace and the highest of rewards in the next life.

Imam Ja’fer al-Sadiq (as) quotes his forefathers (as) saying that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) once asked his companions, “Which one of you fasts the whole time?” Salman al-Farsi, may Allah have mercy on his soul, said, “I do, O Messenger of Allah!” The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) asked them,…

Hijacking my Hijab

‎”Be the Muslim you want to see in your fellow Muslim. Enjoin good by being good. Passing judgment and making assumptions about people is not the Muslim I want to be. I don’t imagine it’s the Muslim anyone wants to be. We are all striving towards sincere devotion and worship. And how one worships is a covenant between oneself and God. No one else. NONE of us, and I mean NONE, are perfect. So NONE of us have the authority to consider anyone lacking in piety, un-Islamic, or not practicing. Faith resides in the heart.”

When Allah wants good for one of His servants, He causes them to abstain from this world’s pleasures, and causes them to gain thorough knowledge about religion, and gives them insight into the flaws of the life of this world…Verily, if the heart is refined and purified, the earth becomes too narrow for it, such that it has no choice but to rise above it.
Who Is Hussain (as)?

"The greatest stand is to speak the word of truth in the face of a tyrant."

This is history, all in the past. But it happened for a reason, to teach us something vital for the future - our future. It taught us to always stand up for justice, and have faith in knowing if you are the one fighting for that justice, you have absolutely nothing to fear.

A moment of patience in a moment of anger prevents a thousand moments of regret.
When I pretend to be strong, no one sees my hidden tears except Allah. When I’m sad and need a shoulder to cry on, no one supports me but Allah. Pleasing a human is very difficult, pleasing Allah is the easiest. People sometimes punish me for mistakes I have not done, Allah ignores and excuses the ones that I did. This is Allah, The Greatest, The Most Almighty, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful, and all praise belongs to Him.
My mother did not leave me behind to watch from afar as recreation the day when my brother is all alone, surrounded by enemies with no friend or supporter. You know that for fifty-five years my brother and I have never been separated. Now is the time of our old age and the closing period of our lives. If I leave him now, how shall I be able to face my mother, who at the time of her death had willed, ‘Zaynab, after me you are both mother and sister for Husayn (as)? It is obligatory for me to stay with you (Abdullah), but if I do not go with him at this time, I shall not be able to bear the separation.
