How beautiful it is
to be deeply connected
through our duas for each other.
They leave our souls and
escape our lips,
fly and wander
over seas and countries
until they meet one of us
in a blink of an eye.
And my Lord knows
that you’re in my prayers
for He is Ash-Shaheed,
Outdoor decor perfection. 👌🌱🌿 #gambia #instaafrica #dynamicafrica
The word ‘sin’ which, outside of the religious circle, has fallen out of favor in the modern world, is possibly related to a Saxon word that meant ‘to wander.’ Sin is an English translation of the Hebrew term ‘het’ which like both its Arabic and Greek counterparts — khati’ah in Arabic and hamartia in the New Testament — is originally an archery term that meant ‘to miss the mark.’ Sin was also used in archaic English as an archery term for a miss. The idea being that sin, in a metaphysical sense, originates in a sound attempt at achieving a good but ‘misses the mark’ by mistaking an apparent good for a real one. Repentance is, in essence, redressing the miss and re-aligning one’s spiritual sights for the next attempt.
Shaykh Ḥamza Yūsuf (via theconsciousmuslim)
God often removes a person from your life for your protection. Think about that before you go running after them.

With all of the craziness that’s ensuing the world, sometimes this is all you need.
