[narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim]
[Sharh al-Bukhari, Nikah, 2]
I won’t say that “you broke me”. You’re not that powerful, I’m not that weak. You are not more powerful than my Lord who has promised me protection. You didn’t break me, you made me sad. And sadness passes. And my Lord is eternal.
and THIS ladies and gentlemen, encompasses my feelings at the moment. beautifully written. :)

She compared him to the sun.
But they could never touch,
So the stars and clouds whispered,
Passing along their messages
And the ocean was their witness
An affair across the sky (via clairewords)
how beautiful sA :’)

|—||(noun) Jan/jaan is one of those specials words which lends itself across cultures and languages as a term of endearment and affection meaning, love, dear, heart, and life in East Asia. Arab/Persian: In Arabic, jan represents beloved one or dear. The Persian origins of this word mean life, equivalent to the Punjabi and Hindi definition. Calling a person your jaan, in comparison to the Arab and Persian culture, in South East Asian countries is an act of true love and intimiacy, and not used as liberally as the Persian connotation. Its true origins stem from Sanskrit. In Urdu you often refer to your lover and those your are close to as “meri jaan [meh-ree jaan],” also meaning my life, and my dear. It has a deeper emotional meaning than merely calling someone your love, or sweetheart; it is used in the essence of true love. (via wordsnquotes)|
As the world looks on with horror at the growing civilian toll in Gaza, and Hamas and Israel consider the terms of a U.S.-proposed ceasefire, one young Palestinian architect is responding to the crisis through art. Gaza-based Tawfik Gebreel aims to send a message, in the “universal humanitarian language understood by all peoples of the world.” He is using photos of the smoke thrown up by rocket strikes and reworking the images with symbols of hope and unity.
What is love?
when your spouse wakes you up for Fajr prayer.
when your spouse reminds you of Allah SWT.
when a wife makes tea for husband and takes a sip before him to see if it tastes right.
when a husband helps his tired wife in the kitchen even though he worked all day.
when a mother gives her child the best piece of cake.
when your friend holds your hand tightly on a slippery road.
when your brother messages you and asks if reached home on time.
Love is not just a loving someone when you need something from them.
