You couldn’t have been anymore happier then right now. Your boyfriend, Sami Zayn, finally took some time off from his busy schedule to come home. With being a popular crowd favorite at WWE, Sami was on the road more than usual and you barely got to see him. It warmed your heart when you were actually able to spend time with the love of your life of two years.

“Wow, I’m stuff. That was fantastic. Thank you.” Sami said as he leaned back in his chair and rubbed his stomach.

You giggled and said “thank you” as you grabbed his plate and placed a quick kiss on his cheek.

Sami came up behind you and wrapped his arms around your waist as you placed the last plate in the dish washer and turned it on. “So what do we do now?”

You turned yourself around and wrapped your arms around his neck. “I’m feeling some Netflix and snuggling in bed.”

“Sounds perfect, lead the way.”

As you were finding a movie to watch, Sami was getting the bed comfortable. You couldn’t find anything interesting so you settled on watching Zoopotia again, which was one of your and Sami’s favorite. You placed the remote on the end table and climbed into bed and snuggled yourself into Sami’s side. You placed your head on Sami’s shoulder and Sami wrapped one arm around your waist as his other play with your hair. You were mindlessly softly scratching Sami’s beard which you loved to do and it always made Sami more relaxed then anything ever.

Half way threw the movie, Sami realized that you stopped playing with his beard. When he looked down, he saw you were fast asleep. He smiled to himself as he watched your chest slowly rise and fall. He reached out and softly pushed a strand of hair behind your ear.

“You know, you are the most beautiful person I have ever seen in my life. I love everything about you. I love your beautiful silky hair. I love the way your eyes shine when you’re talking about something you’re passionate about. I love the way your smile can light up an entire room. I love how caring you are. I love how you can drop anything at any moment to help the people you love. You make me the happiest man in this world and I swear I’m going to marry you. I love you so much (y/n).” Sami whisper to you.

Sami quietly reached over you to grab the remote and shut off the TV and the lights. He pulled you closer to him and wrapped his arms around you.

“I might even find the courage to ask you very soon. I mean I already have the ring.” Sami kissed your forehead and laid back and instantly feel asleep.

You couldn’t help but smile. You heard every word Sami said. You softly kissed his jawline and whisper “I love you too and I can’t wait to marry you” and fell back asleep.

Warnings: Super angsty, lots of swears and yelling, there’s a kinda smutty moment.

Rating: Mature

A/N: I thought of this and just needed to write it. This is super long. Also I think this is really bad?? It might not be but I think it is. Y/n (your name)

You were head over heels in love, to who? You had no idea. You and Sami Zayn have been together for almost a year. He was such an amazing man. He knew how to make you laugh, how to make you swoon, and how to make you scream his name. His time in NXT with you were the happiest of your life. He was so sweet and caring towards you that the moment you met him, you knew. Always being with him was a god sent. He would always kiss you good luck before a match and kiss you after. He would always be so soft with you when you had sex, but there were some days that all that sweetness was gone and he would take you anywhere at any time. When you got the news that he was being put in the main roster, you were ecstatic. Then the initial joy slowly faded away and you realized what was going to happen. The main roster and NXT were on different schedules and rarely, if ever, were in the same town. So when he left, it was heartbreaking. It felt like he had broken up with you. Sometimes you two were close enough for you to see each other but that was so rare. Texting and Skype can only do so much. This is where Finn Balor comes in.

Being Sami’s girlfriend meant you and Finn became best friends too. When you three would hang out, it was more fun than you would ever have. You found yourself laughing so easily around them. You love riding in the car with them, Sami’s hand on your leg and Finn’s head between the front seats. You watching movies with them was so fun, candy and popcorn were always flying. So when Sami left, Finn was there. The first month was hard, but Finn was there. He would sit with you when you were lonely and couldn’t call Sami, lightly rubbing you back as he held you close. On more than one occasion you would knock on his door and ask to come in. He never said no, and you would often just fall asleep in bed with him. One morning you woke up to him wrapped around you tightly, his lips touching your neck. When he woke up, he immediately rolled away and apologized for the next 10 minutes, even though you kept saying it was okay. Finally you just left the room. The rest of the tour Finn kept his distance and that’s when you knew. You knew that you were totally in love with him. On the last day you went to his room, lightly knocking on the door. “It’s me Finn.” The door opened slowly to show a shirtless Finn. Your breath caught in your throat when you saw him. When you opened your mouth to talk nothing came out, but tears flooded out of your eyes. Finn’s face creased as he pulled you to him, kissing your head and walking into his room.

radical--softness  asked:

Hello, it has taken a while and it has been a slow burn but now I've fallen hopelessly in love with Sami, like, top five wrestlers, I'm going to cry because they just won't let him be happy and also shriek with glee over his existence kind of love. I'm doomed, aren't I? :)

I’m…so sorry to have to inform you that you are, indeed, doomed.  I especially empathize with you because Sami fans seem to come in two forms: the ones who fall in head-over-heels, intuitively in love with him the first time they see him, and the ones like me who watch like a solid six months of content with him in it, hardly even noticing that he’s shown up uninvited at the front door of our hearts until oops, there he is, waltzing in and putting his feet up on the furniture of our soul.  It’s not an easy life as a Sami fan, it’s full of disappointment and worry that–one hopes–makes the joyous moments even sharper and brighter and more luminous.  But we’re here for each other no matter what!  *gives super-secret ska salute*

A reflection on prayer:

“The Prophet Peace be upon him said: When a slave stands and prays, all his sins are brought and placed on his head and shoulders. Every time he bows or prostrates, some of them fall from him.” (Bayhaqi, Saheeh al-Jami’)

Imagine all your sins being placed on your head and shoulders like leaves bearing the weight of your life. When you go into ruku, imagine the leaves falling off your body as if gravity has been ordered to force the cleanliness of your soul. Tell Allah with your heart that you will never kneel to anyone but him. And when you say "Sami'Allahu liman hamidah” (Allah hears who thanks Him) and you say “Rabbana walakal Hamd” (Thanks to you my Lord) you are thanking Him for honoring you and making you stand straight not like the other creatures who walk on four with their back bent. Thank Him for making you able to move and pray.

Slowly, as you rise and fall into prostration, imagine the leaves blow with the blessed wind created from the movement of your fall. Stay there. Pause. Let those leaves fall for however long it takes. The first sajdah (prostration) represents the earth which you came from and when you get up after the first Sajdah you are representing the first time He created you from the earth. Humble yourself.

The second sajdah represents death. When you rise the second time you are representing the second time when Allah will bring you and I back from the dead on the Day of judgement.

Make a lot of Du'a in Sujood and remember Du'a is ibadah and Allah loves those who ask Him. ask Him and beg Him. Complain to Him, you are better off complaining to Him than to anyone else. He will never betray you, He will never let you down, He will never look down on you and He is the only one who can answer your needs with your head held high.

Recite “Allahu Akbar” with contentment, It’s a reminder that Allah is greater than anything you might be thinking about from this world. So be honest when you say “Allahu Akbar” and remember He is greater than anything that is occupying your mind while you pray.

Do you know when you stand up to pray and say “Allahu Akbar”, Allah stands before you and the minute your mind goes wondering on silly things in this life, Allah turns His face away from you and says (Is there something better than me taking you away from me?)

Ya Allah taqabbal salaatana… Ya Allah accept our Salah, grant us the ability to pray with khushu, with full concentration, devotion, and in the correct manner.

Book Review: Where the Streets Had a Name by Randa Abdel-Fattah

This was my first read by Randa Abdel-Fattah, but certainly won’t be the last. Highly recommended.


Thirteen-year-old Hayaat is on a mission. She believes a handful of soil from her grandmother’s ancestral home in Jerusalem will save her beloved Sitti Zeynab’s life. The only problem is the impenetrable wall that divides the West Bank, as well as the check points, the curfews, the permit system and Hayaat’s best-friend Samy, who is mainly interested in football and the latest elimination on X-Factor, but always manages to attract trouble.

But luck is on their side. Hayaat and Samy have a curfew-free day to travel to Jerusalem. However, while their journey may only be a few kilometres long, it may take a lifetime to complete.

List time! Here’s what I loved about this book:

  • Hayaat’s voice was really powerfully wrought and pulled me into the narrative. She felt completely real, as a thirteen-year-old living in an environment of oppression and conflict. Her backstory is progressively hinted at from the beginning, and had a strong emotional impact on me when it was revealed.
  • Samy, Hayaat’s best friend, was endearing and hilarious. I loved the banter between him and Hayaat, which added a lightness, in an appropriate way, to the tension throughout their journey. It was also fun to see all the quirks and nuances of his interests (e.g. soccer) that added realism to his character.
  • The family dynamics throughout the story were moving and relatable. I especially loved the relationship between Hayaat and Sitti Zeynab.
  • The SETTING. The author was incredible at immersing me in the world, and it’s refreshing to read a story set in the Middle East. Not only that, but the emotions were intrinsic to the setting, making it feel all the more real.
  • Leading on from that, I loved the cultural and language details throughout the story.
  • The dangers and tensions of Hayaat and Samy’s journey made the story gripping, with high stakes maintained throughout, which escalated at each barrier and setback they faced.
  • There was a hero’s-journey feel to the book, as they met different people along the way. It was really enjoyable and heartwarming to see the friendships they formed, and people helping each other.
  • There were some beautiful and moving scenes near the end, which really showed the pain and oppression endured by the people of West Bank, and the role of hope and purpose to staying resilient
  • Apart from the inevitable – due to the situation of unresolved conflict between the states – almost everything was clearly wrapped up at the end of the story, which gave a satisfying sense of closure and the feeling I’d really followed the characters through to the end

In summary: read this incredible book, especially if you’re looking for moving relationships and a journey storyline, and are interested in the Middle-Eastern setting

ex-shield members dealing with each other again and possibly becoming friends or acquaintances again is so fascinating to me. and its not even because of ship stuff, but because it can potentially be great storytelling. like, this year kevin and sami’s storyline was the most interesting to me because I love stories with people who were friends for a long time and they become enemies due to betrayal/jealousy/etc.

and for roman and seth, the blood is so bad between them, but not as bad as it runs between seth and dean, so there’s a realistic chance of redemption of Seth in Roman’s eyes. or maybe they will never get along. maybe seth will miss roman and roman will never see him as someone he needs in his life again. or maybe roman will be ready to forgive and seth may betray him again. maybe they’ll dislike each other and fight forever. who knows.

i’m just rambling, but its fun to think about relationship dynamics like this. especially with the ex-shield members and especially from a roman/seth perspective since their relationship is the least fleshed out and given the least time to develop.

Now, this is a building that I’ve wanted to visit for some time. It is a visitor center in the World Heritage site Laponia, where one can learn about the mountains, the forests, about Sami culture and about the wild-life in the area. It is designed by Wingårdhs architects, and was finished last year. 

Sami culture and handicraft has always been very rooted in nature, and the architects of this building have tried to implement the same sort of ideas in their design but reimagined in a contemporary way. The influences of Sami culture are there: in colors, in patterns and in materials for sure, but also in the way the building is meant to be used. For instance, how the fireplace is placed in the centre of the room as in the traditional sami hut - the goahti.

It is quite a beautiful building, and I think it’ll only get better over the years when the harsh weather of Laponia has done its work. I’d really like to visit this little gem sometime during the winter season. It really must be wonderful to get in from the cold outdoors and gather round the fireplace. 

p.s. they serve some out of this world waffles there, so make sure to get some if you ever visit. 

ok, thanks,


Maybe that’s where we went wrong.
We’re all waiting on the tides to change but we’re forgetting that the moon takes a month to make that happen. We’re focusing on the future when instead we should be focusing on the present and realizing that things take time.If you keep trying you speed things up you’d forget all the lessons you were suppose to learn on the way and just end up repeating your past mistakes. What you don’t see is that your life is endless, so stop trying to rush infinity.
