Was Conan Doyle aware of homoeroticism in his writing?
“His face flushed and darkened. His brows were drawn into two hard black lines, while his eyes shone out from beneath them with a steely glitter. His face was bent downward, his shoulders bowed, his lips compressed, and the veins stood out like whipcord in his long, sinewy neck. His nostrils seemed to dilate with a purely animal lust for the chase,” The Boscombe Valley Mystery, 1891
“When I woke next morning he was in my room, and a funny-looking object he was. His dressing-gown lay on a chair, and he was putting up a fifty-six pound dumb-bell, without a rag to cover him.” The Stark Munro Letters, 1895
“He had not yet attained his full six foot of stature, but no judge of a man (and every woman, at least, is one) could look at his perfect shoulders, his narrow loins, and his proud head that sat upon his neck like an eagle upon its perch, without feeling that sober joy which all that is beautiful in Nature gives to us,” Rodney Stone, 1895
“I live in the faith that there is a Presence and Power greater than I
am that nurtures and supports me in ways I could not even imagine. I
know that this Presence is All knowing and All Power and is Always right
where I am”
~ Ernest Holmes
When Allah decides to make His servant achieve a noble cause, He creates obstacles in its way so that when it is achieved it causes more happiness. It is like the entrance of the Heaven by the righteous people after going through the hardship of death, resurrection, reckoning and crossing the bridge.

The truth about being the child of a drug addict is that you spend half the time wishing they would just overdose and get it over with it and the other half constantly paralyzed with fear that that’s exactly what will happen and you’ll be the one to find them that way.
If a person thinks that Allah does not help the follower of truth in this world and unbelievers and hypocrites enjoy the worldly pleasures, he does not understand the promise and threat of Allah. Allah said: ‘’And you will be superior if you are (true) believers.’’ (3:139).
