What is marriage but the discovery of a best friend, companion, soul mate in the one who is now your family? What is marriage but pillow-fights, and sleeping in, and teasing, and arguing, and telepathically communicating, and often misunderstanding, but always forgiving and constantly cherishing every laugh, every tear? What is marriage but the discovery of your guide to jannah, and may you be their guide. Ameen. May your closeness bring you closer to Him, azza wa jal. May your heart find contentment and your soul find peace. Ameen. What is marriage, but a journey… With your best friend… A journey to jannah. And what a beautiful destination that is.

Please remember that all of these are duaa (i.e. supplications), and supplications are a form of worship. And it is not at all permissible to abbreviate acts of worship however you wish.
The habit of the Salaf and those who came after them was to write these out fully and unabbreviated - even if it was repeated many times on the same line - as opposed to the absurd practice of our times, writing them out as “SWT”, “SAWS”, “PBUH”, “RA”, etc…
When you abbreviate them into initials, they cease being supplications and at the same time, it detracts from the right which Allaah, His Prophet, the Companions and the Salaf have upon us.
We owe it to them to send proper supplications upon them. So let us not be so lazy and stingy, my brothers and sisters!

Any blessing which does not make one closer to Allah is in fact a trial.

Among the worst behaviours that diminish sincerity is to perform deeds just to be seen by people, for their praise, or to honor them, or doing deeds for the sake of worldly matters. This degrades sincerity and Tawhid.

God bless every mother who has held back tears to cradle us, kiss us, and tell us stories until we fell asleep. Every mother who had only seconds to wipe away her tears and paint a smile the moment you naively begged her to color with you. Every mother who performs miracles by respiring on the spot, reanimating her every limb, so to give her children a happiness even she is foreign to.

  • 9 year old Irish boy: why do ye wear that scarf? I thought scarves were only for your neck.
  • Me: Oh it's for modesty like the Virgin Mary.
  • His 14 year old sister: You're Muslim right? That's the one with the 5 pillars right? Shahada, Salat, Zakat, Sawm, and the Hajj. And you make the woodoo before your prayers and you go to the kabaa for your pilgrimage and the mineret is for the call of prayer.
  • Me: *Picks mouth off of ground*
  • Boy: So who do ye pray to?
  • His Sister: Allah
  • Me: Yeah, Allah is actually the Arabic word for One God.
  • The boy then goes and gets his Catholic school books and starts replacing all the words "God" with "Allah".
  • Oh Allah what've I done now : D
