“Our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us Forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Maula (Patron, Supporter and Protector, etc.) and give us victory over the disbelieving people.”
The word “shams” (sun) is feminine, and “qamar” (moon) is masculine. The sun burns itself out to give light and life to everything around, and the moon is muneer, meaning it reflects the light. Within itself it has no light; it radiates the brilliance of the sun. So when we shine as men, the implication is that we are reflecting the glorious light of our women.”
-Sheikh Abdullah Azzam (R.A) Here with Dr Mohammad Shawwaf( H.A) from Hama.
How beautiful is it that a servant forgives the one who backbites about him or who slanders him, and stays silent when he could have responded, all for the sake of Allah. How beautiful then will be his meeting with Allah? Imagine Allah saying to you, “You showed Mercy and forgave My slave, so today I forgive you.”
After many sessions trying to get this one asshole villain that had killed the fighter’s family in his backstory, we finally captured him and decided to give the fighter his shot at revenge.
Bad Guy: “Do it, finish what you started.”
Fighter: “You know, over the course of the past few days, I went on an spiritual journey during this chase. I learned a lot about myself and even though you killed my family 10 years ago, I think I am ready to forgive you and show mercy.”
F: “No.” And then proceeds to dismember the asshole.
Because I’m such a fangirl, I decided to do a quick cover of this song, imagining if Lavellan had this song in mind when she calls out to Solas.
FOR MAKER’S SAKES, IT’S SO HARD TO GET ELVISH PRONUNCIATION RIGHT. (FORGIVE ME)
Composition was by totalspiffage, with a few lyrics changed by me.
Elgara vallas, hahren - Sun sets, elder, Melava somniar - Time to dream Mala tara aravas - Your mind journeys, Ara ma'desen melar - But I will hold you here
Iras ma ghilas, hahren - Where will you go, elder Ara ma'nedan ashir - Lost to me in sleep? Dirthara lothlenan'as - Seek truth in a forgotten land Bal emma mala dir - Deep within your heart
Tel'enfenim, hahren - Never fear, elder, Irassal ma ghilas - Wherever you shall go Ma garas mir renan - Follow my voice Ara ma'athlan vhenan - I will call you, my heart Ara ma'athlan vhenan - I will call you, my heart
I changed the da’len to hahren, as Solas calls Lavellan da’len at times. Since hahren is the opposed to da’len, I had this headcanon that she would have called him that at some point (despite not hearing it in the game). Plus, it’s weird if she referred to him as da’len too. I tried looking up ‘Ara ma’athlan’ to see if it meant ‘I will call you’, though not many results prove it. So I just replaced the word vhenas (home) to vhenan (my heart). Hopefully, it doesn’t change too much or ends up completely wrong.
My Elvish is rubbish so far, so please listen to this with ‘layman ears’, and take it as my contribution to the ever-growing Solavellan trash.
When you feel as though you’re about to explode mentally and emotionally, this is the best time to pray, open your heart to Allah and in exchange of your sorrows you will receive mercy, forgiveness and peace from Him.

Hey guys! So, a couple of weeks ago I made this post suggesting that Zuko thought forgiveness was childish in “The Southern Raiders,” because of his own experiences with begging for forgiveness as a child backfiring horribly.
With that said, I decided to make a visual about Zuko’s thoughts on forgiveness/mercy from the start to the end of the series.
