The experience of Prophet Yunus `alayhi sallatu wa sallam (may Allah send his peace and blessings upon him) is so crucial to internalize. When he was trapped in the belly of the whale, he had only one way out: turning completely to Allah, realizing Allah’s oneness and his own human frailty. His du`a’ encapsulates this truth in such a profound way: “There is no God but You, glory be to You, I was wrong.” (Qur’an, 21:87)
Many of us are also trapped inside the belly of the whale of our own desires and objects of worship. It is our own selves which we become enslaved to. And that imprisonment is the result of putting anything where only God should be in our hearts. In so doing we create the worst and most painful of prisons; because while a worldly prison can only take away what is temporary and inherently imperfect, this spiritual prison takes away what is ultimate, unending and perfect: Allah and our relationship to Him.

My girlfriend always has to have the last text after saying goodnight. Like she’ll send me a bunch of hearts and I’ll send them back but she’ll come right back at me with twice the amount of hearts.
Like bitch no! Let me fucking have the last text.
I hate the US military with all my heart but I will never EVER celebrate the death of young soldiers, young people, no matter what flag they died under. this website seems to have taught a whole generation of folks that spouting hateful, dehumanizing, toxic and vile rhetoric is totally fine so long as you’re on the “right side”, so long as we are united against some Great White Enemy. miss me with that. I’d rather be called a useless liberal ALL DAY than throw in with “radicals” on here that can’t be bothered to show basic human decency and kindness. if you’re revolution doesn’t involve kindness and compassion I want nothing to do with it.
