A Cute Letter from a newly married girl to her motherDear mom,Like every normal girl, I was excited about marriage right from my childhood days. I never thought beyond the time that I would spend happily with my prince charming. But today when I am married, I realize that marriage is not all roses. It’s not just about being with your beloved and having a gala time. There is so much more to it. It comes with its own share of responsibilities, duties, sacrifices and compromises. I can’t wake up anytime I want to. I am expected to be up and ready before everyone else in the family. I can’t laze around in my pyjamas throughout the day. I am expected to be presentable every time. I can’t just go out anytime I want to. I am expected to be sensitive to the needs of the family. I just can’t hit the bed anytime I want to. I am expected to be active and around the family. I can’t expect to be treated like a princess but am supposed to take care of everyone else in the family. And then I think to myself, ‘why did I get married at all?’ I was happier with you, mom. Sometimes I think of coming back to you and getting pampered again. I want to come home to my favourite food cooked by you every evening after a nice outing with friends. I want to sleep on your laps like I have no worry in this world. But then I suddenly realize, had you not got married and made such sacrifices in your life, I wouldn’t have had so many wonderful memories to hang on to. And suddenly, the purpose of all this becomes clear- to return the same comfort, peace and happiness to my new family that I got from you. And I am sure that as time would pass, I would start loving this life equally as you do. Thank you mom for all the sacrifices and compromises you made. They give me the strength to do the same. Love you.It’s an excellent letter for all daughters

A Cute Letter from a newly married girl to her mother

Dear mom,

Like every normal girl, I was excited about marriage right from my childhood days. I never thought beyond the time that I would spend happily with my prince charming. 

But today when I am married, I realize that marriage is not all roses. It’s not just about being with your beloved and having a gala time. There is so much more to it. It comes with its own share of responsibilities, duties, sacrifices and compromises. 

I can’t wake up anytime I want to. 
I am expected to be up and ready before everyone else in the family. 
I can’t laze around in my pyjamas throughout the day. 
I am expected to be presentable every time. 
I can’t just go out anytime I want to. 
I am expected to be sensitive to the needs of the family. 
I just can’t hit the bed anytime I want to. 
I am expected to be active and around the family. 
I can’t expect to be treated like a princess but am supposed to take care of everyone else in the family. 

And then I think to myself, ‘why did I get married at all?’ I was happier with you, mom. Sometimes I think of coming back to you and getting pampered again. 

I want to come home to my favourite food cooked by you every evening after a nice outing with friends. I want to sleep on your laps like I have no worry in this world. But then I suddenly realize, had you not got married and made such sacrifices in your life, I wouldn’t have had so many wonderful memories to hang on to. And suddenly, the purpose of all this becomes clear- to return the same comfort, peace and happiness to my new family that I got from you. 

And I am sure that as time would pass, I would start loving this life equally as you do. Thank you mom for all the sacrifices and compromises you made. They give me the strength to do the same. Love you.

It’s an excellent letter for all daughters

Marry someone who lets you have a bite of their brownie, even when you said you weren’t hungry. Marry someone who laughs at the same things you do. Marry someone who kisses your nose on a cold day. Marry someone who you can watch Disney movies with. Marry someone who is proud of you whether you earn £5 a week or £5,000 a week. Marry someone who you can tell everything to. Marry someone who isn’t afraid or embarrassed to hold your hand in public. Marry someone who lets you take over when decorating a cake. Marry someone who you can spend the day in Ikea with without feeling stressed. Marry someone who wraps you up inside their coat in the winter. Marry someone who accepts your fears and phobias. Marry someone who gives you butterflies every time you hear their key in the door. Marry someone who you don’t always have to shave your legs for. Marry someone who accepts you all day every day, even when you don’t look or feel your best. Marry someone who puts three sugars in your tea, despite telling them “just the two”. Marry someone who doesn’t judge you when you eat your body weight in cookies. Marry someone who doesn’t make you want to check your phone, because you know they will reply. Marry someone who waits with you to get on the train. Marry someone who understands that you need to be alone sometimes. Marry someone who gets on well with your parents and isn’t uptight about family events. Marry someone who calms you down when you get mad about stupid stuff, and never tells you it’s “only stupid stuff”. Marry someone who makes you want to be a better person. Marry someone who makes you laugh. Marry someone who you love. Marry your soulmate, your lover, your best friend.

It’s impossible to “miss your chance” at something. When an opportunity presents itself, of it, what is written for you will be yours and what isn’t won’t be. There’s no changing that fact. What you should focus on instead, however, is how strongly and wisely you grasp the opportunities that come your way. Work hard at and with what you have. Pursue what you want, but don’t feel that you’ve missed out on something, because the truth is, it wasn’t meant to be yours in the first place. Find peace with that, because the sooner you do that, the happier and more content you will be with what you do have.

whores:

You deserve someone who loves you with all their heart, someone who will think about you everytime, someone who will be wondering every minute of the day what you’re doing, where you’re at, who you are with, and how you are. You need someone who helps you make your dreams come true, and make your fears go away. You need someone that treats you with respect, who loves you like no one no matter your flaws. You should be with someone that knows how to make you happy, really happy.

Following the 2013 Hajj (حج) on Instagram

To see more photos and videos from the 2013 Hajj, visit the Holy Ka’aba and al-Masjid al-Haram Mosque location pages or browse the #hajj and #حج hashtags.

Every year, more than three million Muslims make a pilgrimage to Islam’s holiest site, Mecca. This pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia, known as the Hajj (حج), takes place between the 8th and 12th days of the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah (ذو الحجة), falling this year between October 14-18. The Hajj is a mandatory lifetime event for all able-bodied Muslims who are able to afford the journey, and it constitutes one of the Five Pillars of Islam.

The Hajj itself consists of many rites, the most iconic of which is known as Tawaf (طواف). For Tawaf, pilgrims enter al-Masjid al-Haram Mosque, at the center of which stands the sacred Kaaba: a cubic structure believed to be the first site of worship in the Islam faith. Pilgrims circle the Kaaba seven times counterclockwise in harmony, praying as they go.

The people who are meant to be in your life will always gravitate back towards you, no matter how far they wander.

Every so often, life takes you by the heart and pulls you so low that you feel your soul itself is 6 feet under. Truth is, a test of life couldn’t present itself more clearly. Tests are not there to make us feel weak, contrary to popular feeling. They show us our weaknesses, true, but they do so as a way to give us the opportunity to capitalize on our strengths and grow to the next level of our personal journey. So, the lower life pulls you, know that it’s because God knows you have what it takes to climb that much higher to get back on top.

If Allah has put you in a difficult situation in this world, it’s a chance to earn ease in the Hereafter through patience.

If falsehood and corruption are on the rise, it’s a chance to do more Dawah and spread the truth.

If you’re being ridiculed for your faith by the creation, it’s a chance to earn the praise of the Creator.

Everything from Allah is good because even the “bad” in this world is in essence just a means of attaining good in the Hereafter for the believer.

The sunnah is to be optimistic and opportunistic.

I know you feel worn and tired. I know you’re tired of failing. Rest, but don’t stop. You can do this. You got this.
Not because you’re strong, but because He’s your strength.
