it makes me really sad when people hate themselves because they’re fat/ugly/not good enough.

AY MARAH WHAT U DOIN ON TUMBLR HUH

i can ask u the same question
this is why we fail….

umm-isa:

Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, 


“The more a person sticks to Allaah’s Legislation the more He, the Most High, will guide him, due to His Saying, ‘And He guides them to a Straight Path.’ [5:16] So sins are a cause for deviation and obedience and submission are a cause for guidance.”


Tafsir Suratul-Maa’idah, v. 1, p. 221. 

"

And sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in.

"
Jane Austen, from Sense and Sensibility (Penguin Classics, 2003)

aisha-assalafiyyah:

Abdullaah Ibn Mas’ood said: 


“There isn’t any true relaxation for the believers besides the meeting of Allaah.” 

[Az-Zuhd of Ahmad, 194]

"The axe forgets; the tree remembers."
African proverb (via journalofanobody)
"How is it possible for one’s heart to be certain that one is going to meet Allah, that Allah sees and hears all that he does, and knows his secret and open affairs, and that he will be made to stand before Allah, answerable for all his deeds - how can one be certain and aware of all this, and yet persist upon things which displease Allah; persist upon abandoning Allah’s orders, neglecting His rights, and yet claim that he has good expectation of Allah?"
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah (via gordo10bx)

umm-isa:

From Ibn Umar that the Prophet said, “It is not befitting for a believer to be someone who curses.”

(as-Saheehah no. 2636)

Benefits for building companionship with the Quran: Recite the Quran!

dawud-abdulhameed:

Imam Muslim recorded with his chain from Abee Umamah al Baahilee RadiAllahu Anhu that the Prophet(SalAllahu Aleih Wasalaam) said, “Recite the Quran, for it will come on yawm al qiyaamah as an intercessor for it’s companions”

What is NOT from As-Salafiyyah

nostalgicabstract:

I’ve seen “so-called Salafis” do at least 5 of these on Tumblr Subhana’allah . May Allah guide us all and give us tawfeeq to practice the true characteristics of the Salaf. Ameen.

WHAT IS NOT FROM SALAFIYYAH
translation of recent tweets by Sh. Muhammad Umar Saalim Baazmul

1) Taking (knowledge) from just anyone without first looking at their situation in dealing with the Sunnah is not from the methodology of the Salaf. It used to be said: “Indeed this knowledge is religion so look at who you take your religion from.”

2) Treating the mistakes of the people of Sunnah like the mistakes of the people of innovation is not from the methodology of the Salaf, for verily every son of Adam is prone to many mistakes. The methodology of a man is to be looked at and his mistake is dealt with upon that basis.

3) Partisanship, making pacts and secret gathering in exclusion to the rest of the people is not from the methodology of the Salaf. It has been reported that: “Whenever you see those who congregate in the masjid in exclusion to the people, then know that they are upon misguidance.”

4) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to incite the people against the rulers and instigate them to rebel, demonstrate, revolt or publicly criticize them, their ministers or appointees.

5) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to abandon the seeking of mandatory knowledge and neglect seeking recommended knowledge.

6) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to attack the scholars, speak against them, to disavow their knowledge and books and to call to burning, destroying and not referencing them due to a mere mistake they fell into.

7) Blind allegiance to opinions and overestimating them is not from the methodology of the Salaf. They used to say: “My view is correct and can possibly be wrong and what my opponent is upon is wrong but may possible be right.”

8) Animosity on account of the mere occurrence of differing is not from the methodology of the Salaf. They used to differentiate in that regard according to a man’s circumstance and the reality of the issue. Differing along with a pure intention doesn’t ruin the love in any case.

9) It isn’t from the methodology of the Salaf to restrict the religion in one issue such as that whoever agrees with me is Salafi and whoever disagrees with me isn’t Salafi. Salafiyyah is a methodology not a single issue.

10) Blind following and blind allegiance without evidence is not from the methodology of the Salaf.

11) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to revile the Sahabah, even just one of them.

12) Involving oneself and delving into fitnah is not the methodology of the Salaf. Rather they avoided and warned against it.

13) Falling into division, differing and mutual hatred is not from methodology of the Salaf. Their slogan was: Do not hate one another and do not abandon one another and be brothers oh slaves of Allah.

14) Innovation and invention is not from the methodology of the Salaf. Their slogan was: Follow and do not innovate for you have been sufficed, and the affair of old is binding upon you.

15) Knowing the truth because of men is not from the methodology of the Salaf such as that anything that came from so and so must be true. Rather, their slogan was: know the truth and you will know its people, know the truth and you will be from its people.

16) Seeking popularity and elevation over people is not from the methodology of the Salaf. For verily loving to be manifested breaks the backs of people and when a youth is given leadership he misses out on abundant goodness.

17) Being concerned with purely intellectual sciences is not from the methodology of the Salaf. Their knowledge was only what Allah said, what the Prophet – صلى الله عليه وسلم – said and what the Sahabah said.

18) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to be silent from advising regarding Allah, His Messenger, His Book, the rulers of the muslims and their masses.

19) Over-inclination to the world and leaving off working for the hereafter is not from the methodology of the Salaf.

20) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to utilize every verse and hadeeth as evidence until the verse is understood precisely and until the hadeeth is a sunnah that was followed.

21) Exultation above the creation is not from the methodology of the Salaf. They were callers to good, gentleness and mercy.

faraa—faraway:

The hardest thing in the world, is hearing about the death of someone who was your age especially on tumblr. Ayanic-Bond has passed away today in a car accident along with a friend in Oregon. 

She was only 19, and from what our mutual best friend Ayannish told me, she was the sweetest girl in the whole world. I never knew her, but as my sister in Islam my heart aches for her and her family and everyone that she was close to.

May Allah raise her ranks in the hereafter, may Allah reunite her with her family and friends in the highest levels of jannah. May Allah forgive her sins and multiply the reward for all of her good deeds.

Please everyone pray for her and her family. May Allah give them sabr and ease their hearts during the time of this sudden tragedy. Ayan was a daughter, a sister, and a best friend to many. It could have been any one of us. Please read Fatiha for her and keep her family in your prayers. 

May Allah have Mercy on her… truly a reminder.

Allaahumma ameen. May Allaah grant her family patience and may Allaah keep her firm during the questioning in the grave.. The final destination for all of us. I would also like to point out that reading al Fatiha for a dead person has no basis in Islam. The only thing we can do for our dear sister is make duaa for her. http://www.fatwaislam.com/fis/index.cfm?scn=fd&ID=1092 May Allaah have mercy on all of us and grant us a righteous death.
