Soul Santa (Part II) - Funk Machine (Soul Santa (Part I) / Soul Santa (Part II), 1973)

There is nothing that brings comfort to the soul more than the Qur'an.

Sometimes we let the ocean of dunya enter our hearts and just how the water shatters a boat, the dunya shatters our hearts. And it hurts.

It hurts because we sought happiness in the dunya. But the life of this world wasn’t made to be perfect. It wasn’t made to be free of hardships.

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

حُفَّتِ الْجَنَّةُ بِالْمَكَارِهِ وَحُفَّتِ النَّارُ بِالشَّهَوَاتِ

“Jannah is surrounded by hardships and the Hell-Fire is surrounded by desires.” [Muslim]

Subhanallah, what a beautiful analogy. Jannah cannot be attained except by going through hardship, and nothing leads you to the Hell-fire except whims and desires.

What we don’t realise when we’re struggling is that there is always a way out. Even within the depth of darkness. There is always a ray of light. And that ray of light is the Qur'an. Reading it, and abiding by it.

You can either stay in the darkness of the bottom of the ocean and let yourself drown, or you can collect pearls and rise again.

Towards that light.

Towards your salvation.

Seek Allah and He will fill the darkness with the light of His Mercy. Seek Allah and He will rebuild your broken boat. He will rebuild your heart as if it never shattered in the first place.

And that’s the beauty of turning towards Allah. That’s the beauty of reciting His kalaam. It is a polish for your heart that not only cleans it, but it beautifies it even more than when it had first gotten dirty.

First Dates with BTS

help me my ssoul is leaving this earth goodbye my lovely followers this is where i dig my own grave ~Admin Hedgehog

Jin/Seokjin: my mother!!!! my honeybuns!! he would be so sweet ashakjdfhas he would invite you over to the dorm(making SURE that the boys would be away) and cook you a really really nice dinner, dressing in a really big cozy sweater and setting up a really romantic candlelit dinner, where the two of you talk about your passions and learning more about each other, and Jin falling for you the more you talk and enjoy his food~

Suga/Yoongi: He would take you out to enjoy what seoul has to offer!! lots of sightseeing, and you two would just aimlessly wander around, going to different stores and looking in, just window shopping, or going to different food stalls and trying the weirdest thing on the menu. You would do this ALL DAY and for dinner y'all would find a cute little cafe that as you guys dated, would become ‘your’ cafe <3
J-Hope/Hoseok: jhope is a lover of fun and laughter, but as we all know he’s terrified of amusement park rides lol so the next best thing would be the carnival!! there’s lots of food that he can share with you, and theres games that dont involve heights or roller coasters lol, so he’ll play lots of games with you and let you win at some of them, but most of the time he would be trying hard to win a prize for you, and he’s win you a little stuffed horse keychain that would stay on your keyring for years~
Rap Monster/Namjoon: Namjoon kind of baffles me tbh. like he could either take you out on the most beautiful stunning expensive date to the fanciest restaurant in seoul, or he would take you to the concert of the band you both like, which was how you bonded together. OR he would take you to a small little cafe, tucked away on some small side street to watch a poetry night, and then spend the rest of your date discussing your favorite poems and their meanings.

V/Taehyung: SO CUTE AND CLICHE omg he would want it to be like those cute rom com movies and he would take you on a picnic somewhere pretty remote and y'all would go on a really easy little hike, and just plop yourselves down at the best view, where he would pull out lunches that jin he made, and after you ate, you would spend all day playing around in the woods, splashing in a stream or just laying down in the grass and soaking in the sunshine, as he sweetly sang your favorite song to you.

Jimin: like yoongi, your date with him would be pretty simple, but cute!!! he would take you on a walk all around his favorite places, and then treat you to ice cream!! you guys would then sit at a park, on the edge of a beautiful fountain, and talk about your favorite types of food and ice cream, and the pros and cons of each ice cream flavor. He would then pull out two coins and ask if you wanted to make a wish, and after you both tossed your wishes in the fountain, he would ask you what your wish was, and you would giggle and tell him it was a secret. if you asked what his was, he would shyly grab your hand and say his wish already came true<3

Jungkook: like youngjae, he would be soo hella awkward and ask his hyungs for help, which they all gave him conflicting advice so he just decided to scrap their ideas and take you to his favorite korean grill, where you spent the whole night eating and making dumb faces at each other, and just generally goofing off until the shop closed and the two of you had to leave. He would walk you home like the gentleman Jin raised him to be and shyly say that he had a really really nice time, and would ask if maybe you wanted to do this again?? (fuckin dUH OMG SAY YES)

Reasons to Watch Empire of Corpses

- the art is gorgeous

- bastardized zombie fiction in Victorian England involving your favorite literary and historical characters including but not limited to Thomas Edison, M (think James Bond), that guy Nikolai from Brothers Karamazov (he’s really cool here), Alexei Karamazov, Robinson Crusoe’s Friday with a really huge twist like what even but tis okay since he’s really cute here anyway, Frankenstein’s monster (with special appearance of Victor’s brain–no srsly, it’s basically Victor Frankenstein’s invention fucking the world up years and years after his death)

- idek what they wanted to do putting all these characters together,,, was the writer some sort of frustrated lit major *squints*

- tis basically: Adventures of Dr. John Watson (before Sherlock Holmes. now with Zombies!!)

- Young John Watson. who is totally gay 98% of the movie. or possibly bi.

- John Watson obsessively trying to keep his lover’s FRIEND'ssoul in his body (bruhh,,, you’ve gotta LET IT GO, LET IT GO~~)

- John Watson

- cool corpse reanimation concept

- Adler and Holmes appear for like .2 seconds after the end credits *wink*

Reasons not to Watch Empire of Corpses

- the ending will fuck you up so bad… well,, sort of… after realizing what actually happened

- tis a (sort of) zombie fiction… people die obviously

- it is gay af

Ain’t That A Kick In The Head

Not everyone has a soul mark. About 5% of the population never gets one. It’s just something that happens, like red hair. You might stand out, but it’s not a big deal. So when Darcy Lewis goes the first 15 years of her life without one, she really doesn’t care. She doesn’t care about soul marks period. Not until hers shows up that is.
