Riyad as-Salihin, The Book of the Etiquette of Sleeping, Lying and Sitting etc
Book 5, Hadith 814
Narrated ‘Al-Bara’ bin 'Azib (ra):
Whenever Messenger of Allah (pbuh) went to bed, he would lie down on his right side and recite: “Allahumma aslamtu nafsi ilaika, wa wajjahtu wajhi ilaika, wa fawwadtu amri ilaika, wa 'alja'tu zahri ilaika, raghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika, la malja'a wa la manja illa ilaika. Amantu bikitabikal-ladhi anzalta, wa nabiyyikal-ladhi arsalta [O Allah! I have submitted myself to You, I have turned my face to You, committed my affairs to You, and depend on You for protection out of desire for You and out of fear of You (expecting Your reward and fearing Your punishment). There is no refuge and no place of safety from You but with You. I believed in the Book You have revealed, and in the Prophet You have sent (i.e., Muhammad ()).]” [Al-Bukhari].
I’m a stay at home mom to a 3 year old. I don’t get out much and I’m not great at making friends in person as I’m kind of socially awkward and socially anxious. I don’t have tons of people in my life that share my interests that I can talk to, and I always wanted a penpal.
I’m into reading, writing, drawing, cooking, baking, slightly crunchy momming, veganism, gardening, fandom (HP, Supernatural, Buffy, Angel, Charmed, Marvel&DC cinematic universes and tv series, etc) and I love learning new things! I’d like to have someone to email, chat with, maybe share art with (drawings, paintings, writing, recipes), maybe learn something from, and maybe send snail mail or packages after getting to know each other well.
I have well managed anxiety and depression, so a lack of understanding, respect, and sensitivity around mental illness is a deal breaker. I’m also bisexual, so homophobia and biphobia are also deal breakers.
I’m open to talking to anyone, but I am happily and monogamously married.
Preferences: I’ll talk to anyone, but have a preference for 18 and up. I prefer email, but I’m open to snail mail in the future. Other than that, no preference.
