Was it hard?” I ask.
Not as hard as holding on to something that wasn’t real."
"When you turn back to Allah, you feel ashamed. Ashamed to be asking forgiveness of a sin you’re not sure if you can stay away from. Except, you still ask. You still ask, because you know that your Lord is the Most Merciful. That no one can understand what you feel, except Him. You turn back and ask for forgiveness because unlike those in this world, Allāh will always be by your side."
"When someone hurts you or harms you, even if it is a deep wound, forgive them. Forgive them NOT for their sake, but as a sign of gratitude to Allah. Why you ask? For making you the victim and not the oppressor. There is no crime in being a victim, rather it brings you closer to Allah and rids you of sins. But as for the oppressor, they’ll have to face their Lord one day. So in reality, they are their own greatest victims."
Imam Suhaib Webb (via heartheraindrops-fall)
"Don’t feel proud just because you’ve done some good deeds. Think about your many sins. Now remember that there are Angels that worship Allah day and night without sinning. Humble yourself and realise that you’re not doing Allah a favour. Rather, He has favoured you by guiding you to doing good."
Abu Abdissalam (via islamicrays)
