When it’s raining or thunderstorming outside, I open my bedroom window and fall asleep to the sounds of rain. It gets me. Every time.
At fifteen you had the radiance of early morning, at twenty you will begin to have the melancholy brilliance of the moon.
— F. Scott Fitzgerald (via aseeyax)
When you reflect on the examples of the greatest people, you see that even their tests didn’t last forever. It took only a moment of true firmness, trust, faith, sacrifice, and then they were saved. The fire was cooled for Ibrahim (AS), the Sea was split for Musa (AS), and a lamb descended to replace Ismail (AS), as soon as Ibrahim (AS) made the right choice. Just one moment of firmness, trust, faith and sacrifice, and their opening came. Just one moment of firmness, trust, faith and sacrifice…and your opening will also come.
— Yasmin Mogahed (via beautifulpatienceforever)
