I can still post?!?! After you took away my tumbr?
”When she is a DAUGHTER, she opens a door of jannah for her father
When she is a WIFE, she completes half of the Deen of her husband
When she is a MOTHER, Jannah lies under her feet”
‘If everyone knew the true status of a Muslim women in Islam, even the men would want to be women” (Shaykh Akram Nadawi)

I WANT TO HUG THIS FLUFFY ANIMAL.
It amazes me how many considerate people exist in this world. It is the littlest gesture that goes to your heart. The tiniest.
So two days ago I slipped into one of the Reflection Rooms on campus to pray asr. As I opened the door, I found a girl I knew finishing, saying asselamu alykum and getting ready to leave. Her musallah was facing the wrong direction. I was unsure because I have always prayed in the opposite direction.
There was a guy waiting for us to finish so he could also use the prayer room. He showed us the Kiblah and stood outside, waiting and very respectful. Now, there wasn’t time to wait for me to finish because Meghrib was nearing. So I told him he could use the musallah and I will pray on my extra hijab musallah.
I set it up and was expecting him to pray by himself, but he was watching me to finish so we could pray together. I have been attending this school for a year and a half and so far there had been no one that had waited for me to pray together. I mean, it’s common curtesy to wait and pray together with another person but the guys, specially, would pray by themselves and leave, usually. I have found that strange but eventually got used to it, so I wasn’t expecting him to wait for me.
It was new. I don’t know, it kinda caught me by surprise. It was delightful to be included in a stranger’s consideration. Quite delightful.
So…President Brack Obama is coming to my school this Friday. But in order to attend the speech, you need a ticket. Some of my friends have been lining up to get a ticket since midnight. The ticket office opens at 9 AM tomorrow morning. Everyone I know and their mamas are going.
Technically speaking, it is 29 degrees outside right now and this is open to the public. That means there are 40,000 students that attend my school, not counting staff and faculty. It’ll be SO MUCH waiting in line.
I am tempted to go, but classes and waiting in line for two days don’t seem appealing. I don’t think will be worth it. Plus, I have seen him before, so I’ll just stay in my room, and go to my regular classes.
You know that feeling when you finish a great book or a season of your favorite show ending? That void emptiness you feel inside your stomach? That one where you don’t know what to feel or do? How do you get rid of that? And soon?
I started watching Friends in October. I would occasionally watch an episode or two when I needed a break or eating alone in the cafeteria. I looked forward to rewarding myself with an episode for crossing off a task on my never ending list.
It has been four month since I watched the first one and an hour ago I watched the last episode. WHAT DO I DO NOW?
I guess it is as good a time to finish my French devoir, or as Joey said it “Blue Blie Blah, Pluie?”
Allah says: “And it is He who has released [simultaneously] the two seas, one fresh and sweet and one salty and bitter, and He placed between them a barrier and prohibiting partition.” [Surah Furqan:53 ]
