Today is International Women’s Day! Alhamdulillah through my research and my analysis on world religions, I have yet to find one that treats women with the love and respect that Islam showers women. I’m so honoured to say I’m a Muslim because of our women - our Fatima (sa), our Khadija (sa), our Maryam (sa), our Asiyah (sa), our Zainab (sa), our Rubab (sa), our Fizza (sa), our Leyla (sa)… The list continues and I can never do justice to the women of our faith. We’ve had teachers, preachers, nurturers, revolutionaries, speakers, human rights activists! Subhan’Allah. I wish all of my beautiful warrior sisters a lovely international women’s day! ❤️
Your image is engraved
on the face of my watch
It is engraved on each of the hands
It is etched on the weeks
My time is no longer mine
it is you.

Our teacher says that God loves the blind more because they can’t see. But I told him if it was so, he would not make us blind so that we can’t see Him. He answered “God is not visible. He is everywhere. You can feel Him. You see Him through your fingertips.” / Now I reach out everywhere for God till the day my hands touch Him and tell Him everything, even all the secrets in my heart.
But I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.
Olivia Wilde (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
I was quiet, but I was not blind.
Fanny Price, Mansfield Park (Jane Austen)
We shall show them our signs in the universe and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that this is the truth. Is it not enough that your Lord is the witness of all things? (Qur’an 41:53)
