islamic-quotes: Perhaps a sin that humbles you is better than a good deed that makes you arrogant. ~ Sheikh Hamza Yusuf. The moment you did a sin and you feel guilty, you quickly ask for forgiveness from Allah, for Allah loves those who always return to him, for that perhaps is better for you. The moment you did a good deed, and you feel so good about it you tell the whole world, show it off, and there’s some riyyak in your heart for doing it, for that perhaps is bad for you. Perhaps. Be humble, always.
Too often, Islam is portrayed as something like a religious country club - exclusive, like it’s a religion only for the “perfect” people. It’s not. Islam is for broken people. To mend hearts and heal souls.

If they respect you, respect them. If they disrespect you, still respect them. Do not allow the actions of others to decrease your good manners, because you represent yourself, not others.
Mohammad Zeyara (via psych-facts)
Everyone has his or her own way of learning things…His way isn’t the same as mine, nor mine as his. But we’re both in search of our destinies, and I respect him for that.
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist (via bengalqueen)
Too Early for Love
It’s too early for love. Maybe it’s time to enjoy what life offers me. When the feeling comes. When my heart skips a beat. When nothing awful enough to erase my smile.
Well, it’s too early for love. But waking up again after a long hibernation is something to be thanked for. Eventhough future is uncertain but being happy isn’t something to resist.
I know it’s too early for love. So enjoy every moment, every word, every heartbeat, everything for I know I deserve to :)
We allow ourselves to be blown by the winds because we do know what we want: our hearts know it, even if our thoughts are sometimes slow to follow—but in the end they do catch up with our hearts and then we think we have made a decision.
Muhammad Asad, The Road to Mecca (via rsvnr)
God often removes a person from your life for your protection. Think about that before you go running after them.
