this made me cry

Today in YoI-things-I-am-thinking-about-instead-of-work: Katsuki Yuuri slamming his face into a wall and completely sincerely saying it was the most fun he’s ever had in a competition. 

Mamamoo’s apology

“We are extremely sorry for our insensitive actions and use of blackface in our video while portraying Bruno Mars. There is no excuse for what we did and there are not enough words to explain how regretful we are. We are heartbroken to have hurt our international K-Pop fans so deeply.

We love and care so much for all people of every color, race, sexuality, religion, and gender. We love all our fans and are so sorry to have hurt our fans in the black community.

We understand now why our actions were wrong and we never meant to do harm with our video. We were extremely ignorant of blackface and did not understand the implications of our actions.

We will be taking time to understand more about our international fans to ensure this never happens again. We hope that you will help to educate us on these and other issues so that we can become better people and better artists.

Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention and allowing us to right the wrongs that we have done.”

Not many know about this, but you see, I’m in love with Tamako, my childhood best friend

Love is Bilal 

Love is when Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him) retired from making the adhan after the death of the Prophet ٴٴﷺ because he called the Prophet ﷺ to prayer when he was alive, and could not stand to do so without him۔

Love is Bilal ..when he left the Illuminated City (Madinah) because he could not stand to stay there after the Prophet died (because everything reminded him of the Beloved ﷺ)

Love is Bilal..when a long time passed between him visiting the Prophet’s ﷺ grave in Madinah and subsequently the Prophet coming to him in his dream and telling Bilal, “what is with this dryness/ distance oh Bilal?” driving Bilal to make arrangements to head to Madinah immediately upon waking.

Love is Bilal arriving in Madinah in the middle of the night and Hassan and Husayn, the grandsons of the Prophet ﷺ, finding him at the maqam of the Prophet ﷺ him crying and insisting that he, for old time’s sake, make the adhan for the impending fajr prayer and causing an uproar that morning in Madinah as everyone therein poured out of their homes weeping and anguished in being reminded of the days with the Prophet ﷺ.

Love is Bilal..when Umar ibn al Khattab asked him to make adhan to, calling the army in Sham to prayer, and when he reached the part “Ashhadu anna Muhammadan Rasul Allah” began to weep uncontrollably, unable to finish the adhan, and causing the entire army to weep- Umar being the most emotional of them all.

Love is Bilal on his deathbed and experiencing the pangs of death, with his family all around him weeping for him, crying out in poetry to his family gathered around him,
“Tomorrow I meet the beloveds// Muhammad ﷺ and his companions”
