"You cannot pray for an A on a test and study for a B. You cannot pray for a celestial marriage and live a telestial life. You cannot pray for something and act less."-
Tad R. Callister
Reminded me of this:
One day Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) noticed a Bedouin leaving his camel without tying it and he asked the Bedouin, “Why don’t you tie down your camel?” The Bedouin answered, “I put my trust in Allah.” The Prophet then said, “Tie your camel first, then put your trust in Allah.” (At-Tirmidhi)

"why is it always the woman who has to see past the beast in the man? why does she always have to clean his wounds, even after he has damaged her beyond repair? why is it always the man who is worthy of forgiveness for being a monster?

I want to see the beast in the beauty.
the half smile, half snarl. the unapologetic anger. I would like to see the man forgive the monster. to see her, blood and all, and love her anyway."

"And to parents… it is your absolute responsibility, especially to your daughters, to compliment them. It’s not wrong of you to tell them ‘you are beautiful.’ You should tell them they’re beautiful. Because if they don’t hear that from you, they’re going to look to hear that from somebody else. Our girls have low self-esteem because nobody validates them — especially the fathers. The fathers, you have to go out of your way to compliment your daughters. And stop having the attitude that nothing they do is good enough. Stop talking down to them, it’s killing them. It’s killing them. In our deen (Islam) we always talk about the rights of the parents, and they have rights. But they have responsibilities, too."-Nouman Ali Khan (via verypuresoul)
