“A lot of Muslims (men) have good character, good actions and everybody loves being close to him except his family because when he enters the house he changes. In front of other people he is from the best and gentlest of people. Smiling much and soft in speech. But when he enters his house he changes and becomes angry, he gets angry for the smallest of things, he swears about the smallest of things, he fights about the smallest of things.”—

Useful advice to students of knowledge concerning their wives and families.
Isn’t it weird how people change and grow apart and stop talking and then one day you see this person who you swore you were going to be friends with forever and you can barely think of a thing to say and then it finally hits you that somewhere along the way your friendship dimmed and you will probably never be close to that person again. I think that’s one of the saddest things I’ve come to terms with lately.
“I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations. If we don’t vibrate on the same frequency there’s just no reason for us to waste our time. I’d rather have no one and wait for substance than to not feel someone and fake the funk.”—Joquesse Eugenia (via visualcomplex)
The strangest thing I’m thankful for, is how Allah delayed answering some of my prayers. But I am even more grateful that He left some of them unanswered. In His silence, I felt His mercy. In His wisdom, I saw my weakness.
