اثنان لا تذكرهما أبداً: إساءة الناس إليك و إحسانك للناس

Two things never to mention: people’s unkindness to you and your kindness to people.

My day in Adʿiyah

"Know that a man floating on a piece of wood in the sea is not in more need of God and His kindness than a person in his home, sitting between his family and property. When this meaning becomes ingrained in your heart, then rely on God like a drowning man who knows not any other means to salvation but God."

Ibn Qudamah

(via seinedol)

"When God-consciousness becomes a reality in your mind, self-praise will vanish."
Imam Al-Ghazali, Ihya ‘Ulum ad-Din: Book 29 (via mardhiyya)

thepathofabeliever:

Making a mistake is not meant to make you hate yourself. Making a mistake is meant to help you develop a better relationship with yourself, by allowing you to grow from your mistake and keep moving forward.

"

It is reported that Al-Ḥasan Al-Basrī (Allaah have mercy upon him) said:

Verily, you will find the believer (muʾmin) consistent time after time, upon one way, showing the same face; [whereas] you will find the hypocrite (munāfiq) changing colors, trying to be like everyone around him, running with every wind.

Learn from their mistakes and be a better parent to your children.

Umar ibn al-Khattab had a very cruel father, but he spoke very little about him and directed his mindset towards being the best father he could be.

This is the best thing you can do, this is what one of my teachers, who experienced very similar things to you, advised when asked about this.

Ibrahim (Abraham) was kind to his father, even though his father was terrible to him. Even Musa (Moses) spoke nicely to Pharaoh, who raised him, thanking him (Pharaoh) for bringing him up.

We think that this shows how parents are deserving of respect, even when they are abusive, which both of these people above were, but it’s about removing the doubt over whether you did the right thing or not.

The suffering over a “what if” is always worse than a “no.” So remove that doubt by being kind, even if you don’t think they deserve it.

I will be praying for you, insha Allah.

Salaam! The amount of anons seeking help about abusive fathers is a lot higher than it should be. I really don't understand why Muslim dads can be so abusive, and are able to face no consequences. It's disgusting.

Wa alykum as-salaam!

It really is saddening, and unfortunately our communities are very selective with what ills we combat.

Our concerns should be The Qur’an’s concerns, and unfortunately, they are not. We will fight tooth-and-nail over music and hijab, but deny the sexual assault that our sisters face, daily.

It is disgusting.
