❝بين منطوق لم يقصد
و مقصود لم ينطق
تضيع الكثير من المحبة❞

Between what is said and not meant

And what is meant and not said

Most of love is lost.

Gibran Khalil Gibran

(via hadeiadel)

❝جان‎/jan/jān/jaan [jaan]❞
(noun) Jan/jaan is one of those specials words which lends itself across cultures and languages as a term of endearment and affection meaning, love, dear, heart, and life in East Asia. Arab/Persian: In Arabic, jan represents beloved one or dear. The Persian origins of this word mean life, equivalent to the Punjabi and Hindi definition. Calling a person your jaan, in comparison to the Arab and Persian culture, in South East Asian countries is an act of true love and intimiacy, and not used as liberally as the Persian connotation. Its true origins stem from Sanskrit. In Urdu you often refer to your lover and those your are close to as “meri jaan [meh-ree jaan],” also meaning my life, and my dear. It has a deeper emotional meaning than merely calling someone your love, or sweetheart; it is used in the essence of true love. 



There are days when you dont feel like praying. When your soul feels dark and your heart feels down. Those are the days when you need to pray. Those are the days when you need it most. And if you find the strength to bow before your Lord in those days, you have defeated a big part of your nafs and taken a huge step towards your Lord. So pray no matter what. Lead your heart to prayer and one day your heart will lead you to prayer.


“Do not follow (your own) desire, as it will lead you astray from the path of Allah.” [Quran 38:26]”

❝He was handsome, well-mannered, decorous and friendly. When he turned to face the people, they felt that his face was like a bright lantern and the (drops of) sweat on his face were like pearls, and the scent of his perspiration was better than the most excellent musk. He had the seal of Prophet-hood between his shoulders.❞
