One donut to rule them all.
A little prayer for the strugglers (I’m with you):
The Prophet (sa) would say every morning and evening, “Allah, I seek solace in you from hamm and hazn.”
Hamm means things we’ve experienced in the past that sadden and worry us. Hazin are things in the future that scare us and sadden us. Allah is al-Qadīr and al-Rahīm.
May Allah lift the hamm and hazin from us, relieve our burdens and grant us the faith to soar above dark times. Stay strong and know that there are others going through what you are going through, even Imams and activists. You are not alone!
With faith, worship and community, you can do it - with God’s help, you got this. “Indeed, Allah’s help is (constantly) close.”
Even though I don’t know you, consider my prayers as a crutch with you at every tear and sad feeling. My prayers are not strong - I’m in need of yours more. But everyone holding on to their faith amongst the rocky seas of life, I love you for the sake of Allah and I’m happy to share in the struggle with you. Have a great Sunday!” —

The explanation of hamm and hazn just blew my mind. I’ve known that dua for years and loved it when I read the translation but now it means so much more.
This tweet is so important to me
why i do what I do
heartwarming realisation that literally no one in the world wants anything to do with you lmao
u kno when you’ve had ppl round for several days and you’ve had to constantly be wearing bras even at night and then you finally take it off and it feels like freedom and liberty and justice yah
Thank God someone finally said this. I’m so sick of stating that Western intervention and invasion of other countries fuels terrorism only for people to respond 'They did 9/11 first!'
In 1953 the UK & the US staged a coup of the democratically elected leader of Iran and installed a dictator who was more to their liking. Today the US continues to support brutal dictators (such as in Saudi Arabia) where it suits them to do so. Palestine has been occupied for decades. The list of Western imperial foreign policies over the past decades could go on and on.
9/11 was not only only a result religious extremism and it certainly was not because 'they hate our freedoms.' Terrorism is often primarily politically motivated and anyone who is serious about preventing it had better take some fucking notice of this fact.
