“To some, Islam is nothing but a code of rules and regulations. But, to those who understand, it is a perfect vision of life” ― Yasmin Mogahed

This raccoon never left the side of a cat who was dying of a tumor. The cat was comforted for the final hours of her life by her long time friend.
-Hold the ones you cherish


This literally just made me cry

NO YOU FUCKERS ALWAYS MAKE ME CRY AT THINGS STOP

It’s heartbreaking how the racoon comforts the cat.
Dark skin is beautiful.

To women with daughters
hoping to raise subservient
domestic slaves:

Hand your daughter
a hammer
before you give her
a kitchen knife.

Or better yet,
let her choose
her own weapon.

Teach her how to
manage a bank account
before you enlist her
to domestic service.

Do
not
leave
the
dishes
for
her.

Equip her
with a strong voice,
so that she may
speak over
those who may feel
they know
her place better
than she does;

so no one
can make her
decisions for her.

Allow her to choose:
her own colours,
her own way,
her own likings.

She may not like
dresses after all,
what’s the harm?

Encourage her
to be independent,
to pursue her dreams;

you were not born
believing that your
body is a factory,
so why would
you impose the idea
on one of your own?

If you tell your daughter
that she is
in any way
less than a man,
the problem is that
she will eventually
believe you.

"

I don’t usually discuss the story behind a piece of writing, but this one stands out.

My parents had a few families over for dinner recently and I wanted to help in the kitchen to the best of my ability. So I was putting clean dishes away, clearing out the ones from inside the sink, etc.

As I did this, one of the ladies said to me from behind me: “It’s wonderful that you’re helping your mother out, but don’t you dare do this when you’re married, or else your wife will never do any work! ”

It could have been a joke, but it wasn’t. Because she proceeded to cite examples of wives who did not do “what they were supposed to do.” Essentially, she was telling me that it’s perfectly fine to help my mother in the kitchen, but unacceptable to do the same for my wife when I’m married.

The problem with this is that she has two young daughters of her own, and she is raising them with this backwards mentality that men should be excluded from domestic work simply on the basis of biology, which is completely unacceptable.

Boys aren’t princes and girls aren’t slaves. There is nothing more special about a man which puts him above a woman. There is something incredibly wrong with this mentality, the fact that it persists and is being instilled into children from a young age.

quran-quotes:

#33 The Quran 12:87 (Surah Yusuf/Joseph)

"(And Jacob said):
O my sons, go and find out about Joseph and his brother,
And despair not of Allah’s Mercy.
Certainly, no one despairs of Allah’s Mercy
Except those who disbelieve.”

justspeakinthetruth:

Have you ever met someone and the moment you meet them or get to know them you just know that they’re a blessing from Allah (swt) ?
SubhanAllah they just have such beautiful hearts mashAllah
