A man’s heart is a wretched, wretched thing. It isn’t like a mother’s womb. It won’t bleed. It won’t stretch to make room for you.
Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns (via ranjhana)
Every situation is a rose bush. Will you complain about the sharp edges in your bouquet, or be in awe that flowers emerged from thorns?

I can’t live in my body all the time it feels too much
So if I ever feel far away know I am not gone
I am just underneath my grief
Adjusting the dial on my radio face so I can take this life with all of its love and all of its loss.

Humble it with the generosity of Abu Turab,
Water it with tears for Imams Hussain,
And watch it blossom into a flower,
With the fragrance of Fatima-Zahrah.

I think she’s special. She doesn’t need anyone. Like that’s the thing. Even if we were together, she wouldn’t really belong to me. She doesn’t belong to anything. She’s off in her own world…
Fake people don’t surprise me anymore, loyal people do.
Forty Thousands Angels in grievance, pain, disheveled and covered in dust cry over the grave of Imam al-Hussain (as) until the Day of Judgment.

You will get amazed by how much a prayer can do, if you have the boldness to believe.
