''Cause you never think that the last time is the last time. You think there will be more. You think you have forever, but you don’t.''
''الراحة في الجنة
Rest is found in heaven''
-My mother says this every time things get hectic and there’ a lot going on just to remind herself and us that this world was not created for us to rest in and that we can only truly rest when we are in Jannah. I love it because it describes the nature of this life as well as reminds us to work hard for Jannah so we may finally be at rest. (via technicolour-thoughts
''I suspect the truth is that we are waiting, all of us, against insurmountable odds, for something extraordinary to happen to us.''
-Khaled Hosseini, And the Mountains Echoed
''The odd thing about people who had many books was how they always wanted more.''
-Patricia A. McKillip, The Bell at Sealey Head
There’s a reason Jannah is not in her hands,
but under her feet.
For if it was in her palms, her selfless love would have
handed it to you despite your deserving.
Alas, it is the ground that bears her entire weight. That is
where heaven lies, and if you wish to achieve it- carry her
Wipe her tears.
Give her hope.
Kiss her hands.
Tell her you love her,
in every tongue you speak.
Clean for her.
Cook for her.
Strive for her.
Do not simply hold her hand, for that is not where heaven lies.
Bare her burdens.
You may never come close to the unconditional manner and love in which she bared yours-
But you may earn the key to the gardens of eternal bliss locked beneath her feet.''
