“ You lost hope because you saw only your sins, but could not see what was greater: His mercy. You felt trapped because you saw only the storm, but could not see what was stronger: His refuge. ”

ibtasem:

I pray that
you will endure
all the storms of pain
and rainfalls of tears.

I pray that
Al-Basit, The Extender,
opens the clouds and
lets peace shine on you.

The peace of Jannah
you could never feel
in this dunya.

(via ibtasem)

If you’ve lost your way in this world, feel heavy hearted and are at your worst, return to Him. Return to Him a thousand times over even after you have repeatedly sinned and He will welcome you with open arms and make sujood feel like home again.

I wanted to say
I love you.

I used to always ask my best friends
how they knew when they were in love
but with you,
I just somehow knew
and now I understand what it means
to wish to drown someone
yet save them at the same time.

I wanted to say it out loud
but I didn’t want you to think I was crazy
and I didn’t want to give you even more power
control me
when you are on your way
to owning me.
