— Antonio Gramsci (1929)
Thank God for everything. Ya Allah, please keep me aware of your blessings at all times, make me thankful and humble, and help me remember You in everything I do.
I’m trying never to lie (this is mainly about white lies like “I was stuck in traffic” when I’m late), to be more patient, and to read Surat al Kahf every Friday.
Keeping everything in perspective.
Alhamdullilah. Blessed and happy and thankful for everything.
Thankful for this life, for every extra moment I get, for the love people show me, for learning, for having goals. I’m so blessed. I am working at gratitude every day. Taking it one step at a time.
More than anything I just want to be in the service of everyone around me.
I used to say I was gonna change the world, and now I know the first and most crucial step is to change yourself. I won’t let the negativity get to me anymore.
God has given me so much.
Catastrophe has its silver linings always.. And one of them is becoming stronger and enjoying the peace more..
The western world is quick to call ISIS an Islamic State but still won’t call Palestine a state.
Islam is commonly portrayed to be encouraging of terrorism. Let me put a twist on this perspective. During the first Gulf War, the United States intentionally destroyed the Iraqi water supply and then denied the Iraqis the importation of materials needed to rebuild the supply and purify the water. Thousands of Iraqi civilians were subsequently deprived of clean water, and waterborne illnesses became epidemic. According to the World Health Organization and UNICEF reports, over 1 million Iraqi people have died as a result of contaminated water, and over half were children younger than five years old.
According to Islamic law, poisoning the water supply is considered terrorism and killing civilians and children in warfare is strictly prohibited.

Something to consider this 9/11: those crying “terrorist” in our government are the terrorists.
Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop (9.25.14): Protesters in Ferguson are back out tonight, demanding Police Chief Jackson’s resignation and the immediate arrest of Mike Brown’s killer, Darren Wilson. #staywoke #farfromover
a signature from God,
reminding you that you don’t belong here, that this isn’t your home.

I just found out an old friend of mine, a girl I grew up with, got into a car accident with her family going to six flags yesterday. My friend and her youngest sister are in critical condition. The second youngest sister died in the crash, innalilah w Inna ileih rajioon… The mother is currently in surgery. Please please pray for their recovery and pray that God gives them and their families strength and patience.
