"There are some people who enter your life like gems. These are the real diamonds. They have no ulterior motives, no inferiority complex, no superiority complex, no need to prove that they are better than you, or seek to have more than you. They don’t feel entitled and aren’t needy or dependent. They are not superficial or fake. They remind you of God and they understand you, when no other person does. They don’t wear a mask with you or pretend to be perfect. They are just real with you and honestly and sincerely only want good for you. You feel you can tell them anything without worrying that they will judge you or put you down for being imperfect. They know your flaws, but love you anyway. And they are loyal. You know they’ll be there for you. They’ll always have your back. And best of all, time and distance doesn’t change this. If you’ve met even one person in your entire life like this, you’re blessed.” -Yasmin Mogahed

Being a Muslim was never meant to be easy. Disciplining your desires wasn’t meant to be a piece of cake. But as long as you’re struggling to do what’s right, you’re trying. And as long as you’re sincerely trying, Allah keeps rewarding.
"Sometimes Sabr and silence is better than expressing how you really feel."
