Whatever we’re seeking, in this life or the next, let’s connect with the Book of Allah, Quran. #Quran #Pray
When a Muslim recites the Holy Quran at home, those in heaven see that house just like people see shining stars at night.
- Al-Imam Al Sadeq
SubhanAllah how shaytan works. We could have a thousand amazing things going right for us and we will still choose to sulk over the one thing that’s not. May Allah give us all the courage to be content with His plans for us, may He help us become grateful for His grace.
” The supplication of every one of you will be granted if he does not get impatient and say ( for example ) : I supplicated my lord but my prayer has not been granted . ”
Remembrance after salaam :
‘None has the right to be worshiped except Allaah , alone without partner, to Him belongs all sovereignty and praise and He is over all things omnipotent . O Allah , none can prevent what you have willed to bestow and none can bestow what you have willed to prevent , and no wealth or majesty can benefit anyone , as from you is all wealth and majesty ’

Please keep this circulating. Cops are getting more and more brazen, know your rights!
good to know
my brother is a police officer and these are all v true and things he made sure i knew but also remember the police can lie lie lie. the best thing, as mentioned, is to yell “i do not consent” repeatedly and hope someone will hear and act as an eyewitness for you
this is super important and we need to circulate this especially with the upcoming chicago raid ?? we need to do everything we can to protect possible victims of police brutality and hate crimes. it is not okay to break the law that goes for the people being arrested and the people arresting. stay safe.
"For anyone who wants a simple proof that Palestine existed before 1948, here’s a coin from 1927 worth 10 Mils (this currency is no longer used). Also note that the word “Palestine” is written in both Arabic and Hebrew indicating not only a Jewish presence, but a prominent one. Jews and Arabs DID live side by side in peace. The Zionist idea that they cannot coexist is an absolute fallacy.”
[by Ruqayyah Waris Maqsood in The Muslim Marriage Guide]
I was reminded of a part in “The Hunger Games” when Katniss considers abandoning the resistance against the oppressor, in exchange for “safety”. Gale’s response was telling. He said: “Safe to do what? Starve? Work like slaves? Send their kids to the reaping?”
Consider this: If a woman is being raped, things would be a lot more “peaceful” if she didn’t resist. But, asking her not to resist—just because her attacker is physically stronger—is asking her to accept her own abuse and oppression for the sake of “peace”. This is what the world is asking Palestinians to do.
And sometimes what seems to the world as just ineffective tactics, like throwing a rock at a tank, is in fact an act of resistance. It is a powerful statement to the oppressor—and the world—that they refuse to be enslaved. That dignity and self-respect are even more beloved to them than their own lives.
It is a statement that you can take their lives. But not their freedom.
