What is marriage but the discovery of a best friend, companion, soul mate in the one who is now your family? What is marriage but pillow-fights, and sleeping in, and teasing, and arguing, and telepathically communicating, and often misunderstanding, but always forgiving and constantly cherishing every laugh, every tear? What is marriage but the discovery of your guide to jannah, and may you be their guide. Ameen. May your closeness bring you closer to Him, azza wa jal. May your heart find contentment and your soul find peace. Ameen. What is marriage, but a journey… With your best friend… A journey to jannah. And what a beautiful destination that is.
The Prophet -Sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam- says,
"… and that you deal with people as you would like them to deal with you."
This principle -may Allah preserve you-, that you deal with people how you’d like to be dealt with:
- How would you like people to give you Naseehah?
- Would you like them to advise you with force?
- With foul language? With violence? Or with kindness?
As Allah says, "Repel evil with that which is better. Then verily, he between whom and you there was enmity, will become as though he was a close friend." (Fussilat 41:34)
It’s horrible when your heart is somewhere your body is not.
I was quiet, but I was not blind.
perfect example of why the egyptian upper class is a fetid cesspool of scum: several compounds in sahel (by the north coast/mediterranean) refuse to sell houses to families with women in hegabs. they asked my friend’s mom if anyone else in her family wore a hegab, and the realtor told her in confidence they had a certain quota of women in hegabs they couldn’t go over to maintain a ratio to keep up an “image.” and if she did buy a house, she wasn’t allowed to swim in the sea!!! and this is in egypt! and there are no laws against it!
This is beyond ridiculous *sighs*

Ya rab I hope so! Everything just seems so hopeless atm. For my husband to be able to apply for residency in the UK I need to have a salary of £18,600 or savings of £62,000 of which of course I have neither (that’s big money!). I don’t know what we can do, that’s the requirement but I can’t reach it. Until that’s solved he’ll be in Egypt and I’ll be in the UK :/
In other news I need to get a new laptop, what size do you guys think I should go for?
15.6” or 11.6”?
I feel like I have way too my shoulders for a 20 year old.
Everyone is chilling and going out and enjoying themselves without any worries while I’m trying to solve an impossible immigration problem so that me and my husband of two years are allowed the right to live together.
Don’t be in such a hurry to condemn a person because he doesn’t do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn’t know what you know today.
Be a Muslim that wants to pray, not one that thinks he has to. There’s a massive difference between the two.
A post detailing how OP and his mother went to pick up his little sister and her friend in a car from an outdoor shopping center called Downtown in Tagamo3 (for reference, Downtown is a fairly swanky place and most people who go there are extremely well-off.)
While they waited for his sister and her friend to get in the car, a policeman came by and rudely told them that parking wasn’t allowed there and they should go. His mother responded that his sister and her friend (who were directly in front of the car) were just getting in and they would leave, and the officer gave them a dirty look and said, “get in? do you think this is a microbus?” and once again she asked him to improve his attitude. He responded by telling them this was the only attitude he had and if they didn’t leave he would take their car and them to the station. Anyway, by this time his sister and her friend were in the car and the policeman then began swearing at them. OP got out of the car and was outraged by the policeman’s manner towards his mother, etc. In the meantime, of the police officers (higher rank than the guy in the original altercation) standing by one was filming the whole thing on his phone, and the other was doing nothing. OP’s mother grew frustrated and asked him how he was letting the officer insult them that way, and he began swearing at her as well.
Finally, after a lot of squabbling OP’s mother pushed him back into the car and as they began to leave the officers stood in front of the car and refused to let them go, and began banging on it and telling them they were taking them to the station. The police officer took out a gun and aimed it at them, so naturally OP’s stopped the car and stood still. Police officer then slapped her across the face and made her get out of the car. Both OP and his mother got out of the car. They were in an extremely tense state at this point and bystanders were asking everyone to calm down, etc.
In the midst of this, they found their car being towed by the winch (i don’t know the english word for this - tow truck?) with his sister and her friend still inside. His mother was in a state of collapse and began screaming at the officer and people refused to tell her his name or where they had taken the car. Finally, about five minutes later someone they called told them their car had been taken to the New Cairo police station, and they went there and found the car completely destroyed from the front.
The supervising officers and the sheriff denied their officers had done anything wrong, and the pressured OP’s mother to accept a ‘reconciliation case’ otherwise she would be in custody, and then forced her to apologise to the officer who had pulled a gun on them. They also charged a bystander eyewitness who had come to the station with them of assaulting an officer.
Anyway, this is what happens in Egypt to the extremely privileged class. Imagine what happens to the less privileged.
Sunday night in the UK isn’t complete without a period drama series.
She’s the kind of girl a guy meets when he’s too young, and he fucks up because there’s too much living to do. But later he realizes she’s perfect.
