“People, I have discovered, are layers and layers of secrets. You believe you know them, that you understand them, but their motives are always hidden from you, buried in their own hearts. You will never know them, but sometimes you decide to trust them.”—Veronica Roth, Insurgent (via etherealvistas)
The Merciful Lord has sent us the beautiful Message (The Qur’an)
Yet daily I neglect it,
Daily I choose to read useless words than The Ultimate Guidance.
It’s a sea of blessings,
Filled with numerous treasures,
A book of morals,
The guide for existence.
The words and phrases that bring peace and serenity to my soul,
And soften my hard heart.
There’s nothing else like it,
And I know it,
How utterly foolish.
“A Note To Yourself: Don’t say to yourself “I wish I was a better Muslim”. Become it. Make du’a, make a plan & strive because a goal without a plan is just a wish.-In Shaa’Allah!”—(via 1religion1ummah)
I believe community service is important because you never know how much of an impact you can make in someone’s life just by helping them. Everyone should do community service not because you need those hours to graduate but just for the experience. You never know how big of an impact you can make.

Slept with all the stuffed animals as a child so none of them got offended..Had that one pen with 4 colors, and tried to push all the buttons at once. Poured soda into the cap and acting like I were taking shots. The hardest decision was choosing which Nintendo game to play. Waited behind a door to scare someone, then leaving because they're taking too long to come out or you had to pee. Faked being asleep, so I could be carried to bed. Used to think that the moon followed my car. Watching two drops of rain roll down window and pretending it was a race. Went on the computer just to use Paint. The only thing i had to take care of was a Tamagotchi. The only 'fake' friends i had were invisible ones . I used to sing in the shower. (Now? I make life decisions in there now). Swallowed a fruit seed I was scared to death that a tree was going to grow in my tummy. Getting a bruised knees heals better than a broken heart. Remember when we were kids and couldn't wait to grow up...what the hell were we thinking?
Allaah has not made any obligations to serve Him, difficult. No good is difficult to start and no bad is difficult to stop. What is difficult however, is consistency. To keep doing the good and to keep stopping the bad. & that is what makes serving Allaah all the more meaningful, the fact that you…

“Please be a traveler, not a tourist. Try new things, meet new people, and look beyond what’s right in front of you. Those are the keys to understanding this amazing world we live in.”—Andrew Zimmern (via hephapimp)
