“Seest thou not that to Allah bow down in worship all things that are in the heavens and on earth,- the sun, the moon, the stars; the hills, the trees, the animals; and a great number among mankind?” The Noble Qur’an Al-Haj (22:18)

partytilfajr: Salaam alykum, Maybe you are unaware of this, but I am quite passionate about a particular issue: the translation of The Qur’an into American Sign Language for the first time. I realize that during Ramadan we get bombarded with requests for funds, but, it is not everyday that we get the chance to help give people access to The Qur’an. If you need convincing, please check out...
You don’t need 20 inch biceps, you don’t need calves the size of a...– Sheikh Muhammad Feiz, The Disease of the Heart
I wish to enter into that place
I wish to enter into that place, the gardens too soft for time, the sights too light for pain or grief; I wish to slide along the slopes far above the sky, down and over, beyond the flesh–– Oh, I wish of your countenance, Ya Allah, if I can ever bear the breathless breaths.
I dream of fulfilling the hopes of those greats, to rise above the trenches, and command my heart, to, within the darkness of the night, become the khalifah of my soul. Ya Allah, only to you do I beg for guidance, straight to the path that leads every inch along the long streams and trees, and closer to myself – Ya Allah, closer to the pressing reality of your complete uniqueness: that being your...
“O Allah, make my love for You the most beloved thing to me, and my fear for You the most fearful thing to me, and remove from me all worldly needs and wants by instilling a passion for meeting You, and when You have given the people of the world the pleasures of their world, make the coolness of my eyes (pleasure) in worshipping You.”
“In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful Say: He is Allah, the One and Only! Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not nor is He begotten. And there is none like unto Him.”

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Allah the Almighty said: ‘I am as My servant thinks I am (1). I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; and if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an...

I know this might seem superstitious, but I find it really cool that when I went to go pick up the Qur’an from from my desk, my booklight fell, and upon falling, it turned on and lit up, almost as though by holding to this sacred book, there also comes this beautiful light.
the-peony: when the night is quiet i long to fall asleep to the silent hum of your breath
Nature is jealous of you
Nature is jealous of you: you’re far more adored by my pen, with the light to inspire centuries of poetry, millenniums more of thought and awe; you are better than a rose, a clear blue sky… you are infinite.
heavy air: i’m being weighed down by a smile
I can’t help but stare up towards that nebula, her big beaming eyes
I have no command over my words; they fall where they like, and stay there…
I’ve sewn up another poem through the pores of my skin, words to never forget, all the words behind every smile, the speech within a hug, the long stories hidden inside a goodbye. I’ve sewn myself to you, whether I like it or not.
I always crawl back into that cave after a couple of years, divorced from the sun, sleeping again with the darkness that clothes my skin. It’s hard to believe that tomorrow really does come, it’s hard to believe that I can someday escape myself. Everything just seems like a long, painful journey, even the opening up of an eye. This is why I haven’t awoken for so long, and why I...
Anonymous asked: Hi
how long have I been in this waiting room? wasting away, repositioning my seat, rocking back and forth; how long have I remained still? with empty thoughts, hollow emotions, waiting for my life to finally start.
I fell asleep listening in to the discourse of night and day, their longing for each other, how they chase and chase, but never meet, the sweet, soft poetry they whisper, how close they come but only to be separated again by some force unknown. I never realized that we were a lot like that. I can almost imagine night and day enveloped by one another, a state of bliss, a sight beyond words,...
I took my soul to the ironing board
A while back, I took my soul to the ironing board, and flattened out all of what I was, and all of what I felt. Now, every so often I lay down again like a nervous patient, ready for my treatment, ready to forget.
Allah is He, than whom there is no other god―
Allah is He, than whom there is no other god― Who knows (all things) both secret and open; He Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Allah is He, than whom there is no other god― the sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection). the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Safety, the Exalted in Might, the Irresistible, the Supreme: Glory to Allah! (High is He) above the partners they...
“You know, for the rest of the world that examines what goes on, do you know what it looks like? It doesn’t look like we’re at war with radical Islam, it doesn’t look like we’re at war with communism - it looks like we’re at war with people that say no to us.” – Immortal Technique on RussiaToday
I float on your words long to my destination, the pools of your soul
