“And I understand. I understand why people hold hands: I’d always thought it was about possessiveness, saying ‘This is mine’. But it’s about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don’t go.”—She was always holding my hand (via everythingyoulovetoohate)
““Dan menasehatilah kamu pada wanita-wanita (isteri-isteri). Maka sesungguhnya orang perempuan diciptakan dari tulang rusuk dan sesungguhnya tulang rusuk yang paling bengkok adalah tulang rusuk yang paling atas, maka jika kamu berusaha untuk meluruskannya bisa-bisa malah patah, namun bila dia kamu biarkan saja selamanya dia akan tetap bengkok. Maka menasehatilah kamu pada wanita-wanita”. (HR.Bukhori)”—
“Getting married isn’t going to solve our inabilities to wake up for Fajr or get up for qiyam. We need to develop our own selves without expecting marriage to somehow magically change our lives. Marriage can be a great tool of self-improvement and can help us change for the best, with Allah’s will. Marriage is amongst the greatest blessings that Allah (swt) can bestow on a person; and the creation of a family, and taking care of that family, is amongst the greatest acts of worship. But if we are not personally working on ourselves now, how can we expect that it will be easier with the additional baggage of another individual who is also imperfect?”—
Islam teaches us that men are not superior to women. Actually, we are taught that paradise is beneath the mothers feet, that your wife completes half your religion, and that the treatment of your daughter is what opens the gates to paradise.
