There’s a very big problem when we start to equate the hijab with the wearer’s level of faith. Sometimes it’s not a direct correlate. Sometimes the hijab is just as much of a struggle as any other facet of faith might be. The hijab doesn’t mean perfection. No one should be held up to that ideal. Ever.


I was speaking to a friend in Gaza and he told me that his little cousin is writing her name all over her body with her markers, just in case she gets blown up and no one can identify her. She is 11 years old. 11. The psychological pain and trauma the Palestinian children go through is absolutely repulsive.

Anonymous: I am ashamed to ask for Allah's forgiveness. I've done so much wrong knowing what I'm doing is wrong.


It was said to [The Prophet’s grandson] Al-Hassan: ”Is not the servant [of God] ashamed of sinning and then repenting, and then sinning again and then again repenting?”

He [Al-Hassan] said: “Satan wants exactly that. Never stop making repentance.”

- Ibn Rajab, Jami’ Al-Ulum

"If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I bet they’d live a lot differently. When you look into infinity, you realize there are more important things than what people do all day."
-Calvin and Hobbes (via suspend)
"In her eyes shone the sweetness of melancholy."
-Virginia Woolf, from The Voyage Out  (via womenlikeher)


Allah did not
order the angels
to carve your sins
in stone for eternity.

He told you to
seek repetance
to erase them.

What else did you
expect from Al-‘Afuww,
The Forgiver?
