exquisite eloquence

Oh looky, here we have an annoying attention whore, blathering to the press about something she apparently knows nothing about (even though, just like being able to maybe sorta, kinda act, she fails)….It’s appropriate Crabmilla is pictured in a scene where her character is exceptionally disgusting….

And here we have her castmate, apparently really done with her idiocy, shutting down her stupid with the most exquisite eloquence….

Fabulously, on reddit….where I apparently need to go look at the replies and laugh. HARD…..Looks like Cole maybe “forgot” meeting you, because he didn’t want to believe ANYONE could really be as apparently self-servingly dimwitted as yourself, Crabby…..I’m sure you thought this would soooooo garner you attention on social media….but it looks like the only thing that will be happening is Cole’s now for sure, NEVER gonna hang out with you alone now, dullard (let alone EVER respond to your pathetic attempts at flirting).

Bonus points if Cole and Lili giggled while he posted this and then went and rewatched themselves “in the kitchen” before banging.

Many thanks to @lilis-reinhartt for sending these to me!!!

Nothing good in life comes easy...

Anas bin Malik reported:
“The Paradise is surrounded by hardships and the Hell-Fire is surrounded by temptations”

حُفَّتِ الْجَنَّةُ بِالْمَكَارِهِ وَحُفَّتِ النَّارُ بِالشَّهَوَاتِ

.

Ref: Sahih Muslim 2822
In-book ref: Book 53, Hadith 1
Web (English) ref: Book 40, Hadith 6778

.

“The scholars said: This beautiful analogy is from the exquisite, eloquent and comprehensive speech which was bestowed on the prophet (ﷺ). It means that nothing will help you to reach al-Jannah except going through hardships, and nothing will lead you to the Hell-fire except whims and desires. Both are veiled as described, so whoever tears down the veil will reach what is hidden behind it. So the veil of al-Jannah is torn down by going through hardships, and the veil of the Hell-fire is torn down by giving in to whims and desires. And hardships include striving in ‘ibaadah (worship) and persevering upon that, and sabr in the face of hardships, and restraining one’s anger, forgiving and having long-suffering (hilm), giving voluntary charity, having ihsaan (excellent behavior) with those who mistreat you, having sabr against desires, and so on.

And regarding the desires which surround the Hell-fire, and then it is clear that they are the forbidden desires such as intoxicants (khamr), illicit sexual relations (zinaa), gazing at non-mahram women, gossiping, playing musical instruments and so on…”

It wasn’t an easy few days, as you might imagine.

My dearest John~

These past few days have been an exercise in restraint, and yes, of looking inward. I apologise if you felt I was distancing myself from you because of something you had done, but I will not apologise for needing the time separated from you mentally — and somewhat physically.

It was necessary to come to terms with certain things regarding our relationship which were difficult to unearth but important to be aware of.
