learn how to be happy

anonymous asked:

I hope this doesn't sound weird, but following you and some others has got me considering converting to Islam (likely Shiism). Would it be cool to message you questions, or do you know any resources you'd recommend?

That doesn’t sound weird at all dude. I think a lot of people learn more about themselves and religion via the internet and even personal blogs where you can learn how religion impacts that person.

I would be so so so so happy to answer any questions you might have + offer any resources you’d be interested in. Sending you love pal!!

Okay so I was at the beach earlier and there was a family sat on a towel next to us, and all of a sudden these two little girls came running over looking super excited about something and they were like “GUESS WHAT?!” and the little boy on the towel said “DID YOU FIND A LIZARD?!” and the older one of the girls said “NO, but we found two gay people!!” and she was so amazed I was dying trying not to laugh at this like 11 y/o girl making me feel like a fuckin cryptid on my towel right next to them

maybe we all have that one person that we’d always take back. bruised mouth, bloody ribs, you’re screaming at me and i’m taking it because no matter how bad it gets, there is always good to follow. and that’s what a lot of people don’t understand, the people who ask me why i can’t see the signs of an unhealthy relationship, why i can’t just walk away - that the good days outweigh the bad ones. i would walk away from you screaming one thousand times just to fall into your arms at the end of the night. i’ve learned how to catch your punches. i’ve learned how to find the beauty in pain. and i know: i should find happiness within myself or at least within people who are good for me, but i can’t help the way i feel and i can’t just leave something that makes me so happy. i will take you back until you literally throw me away.

Wallah one day you’ll stand in front of you Creator and you shall be questioned about every single thing you’ve done in your life and it’ll be different from the way you’ve been questioned on this dunya, you can’t run away you cannot lie, you cannot hide, you cannot even speak! Your skin your hands your eyes your ears your body parts will be speaking for you as witnesses. What have you touched that disobeyed your Lord what have you listened to that would displease Allah, what have you said that was against the words of the Above, where have your two feet taken you, a place that would please Allah or have you sinned instead? Ask me about my good deeds and I’ll remain silent and ask me about my sins and I promise I will not be able to count that which I remember leave alone that which I’ve forgotten about! Oh that day we shall see how we’ve been destroying ourselves and saw it all as pleasure, see how much pain it caused us not only in our hereafter but right now in this world, open your eyes and focus more on yourself, you shall see that Allah never needed you once you look back at your life when it has ended you’ll ask Allah, beg Him to return even if it was only a day just to worship Him a little more. Here’s a reminder to go and ask for His forgiveness for the sins you’ve committed knowingly and unknowingly, remember you’ve been put here for a reason, guard your hayaa , your modesty and humble yourself. Be kind and smile, forgive and move on, leave the past where it is for you cannot go back and times doesn’t wait for you. Read your Qur'ān before you sleep, wake up for fajr and perform your wudhu. Don’t rush your prayers and staying longer in sujud, listen more to Qur'ān and leave alone music, if we only spent the amount of time we spent on listening to music and talk/ do unnecessary things and learn our deen, how simple would it be to win Allah’s happiness and be happy ourselves! You don’t understand what favor you do yourself, your soul belongs to Allah and it yearns for its Creator, give it what it wants and you shall not regret. Wake up sister, wake up brother. It is time to wake up.
