Tom Hurndall was a peace activist and an aspiring photojournalist. His photographs, alongside his journals, bear witness to the often terrible, sometimes uplifting, events he saw and experienced while living among families in Iraq, in a refugee camp in Jordan, and in the Gaza Strip. It was there on 11 April 2003 that he was shot in the head by an Israeli soldier while attempting to rescue a child who had been pinned down by gunfire. He died nine months later in hospital in London.RIP

look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to

thisafghan asked: As Salaamu Alaikum my dad is going to get surgery Wednesday (4/16) to have a defibrillator implanted to keep his heart going. His heart is working at 25% when a normal heart works at 60% & anything below 35% working capacity defies death. Please make dua'a his surgery goes well & he has a good recovery (& we avoid post-op infection). Please make dua'a my dad has many more years to live after this surgery. Jazak'Allahu Khairan everyone :)



May Allah swt grant him shifa and a full and quick recovery. iA the surgery will be successful. Ameen.


have you ever met a person that you’re forced to mantain a level of cold civility towards but if you could you would totally punch them as hard as you could but you can’t so every second you’re forced to be around them you’re thinking of smashing their face in just so they’ll shut up

There’s a large disconnect between individuals that believe that Islam is being conspired against and those who are levying legitimate arguments against those who interpret the Prophet’s teachings in light of their cultural views. On the other hand, there’s also a large group…

i was sexually assaulted by my boyfriend/best friend about a year ago. i hate it so much. i hate that he’s going on with his life. i hate that he has a pretty and nice girlfriend whom is parents love and i hate that she likes him back. i hate that he’s telling her all the things he told me. all the things that made me special. all the things he loved about me. i hate that everyone sees him as normal. as nice. as kind. i hate that i’m the only one who knows. i hate that his denial is making me go insane. i hate that my life is slowly going on a downhill spiral and his is just getting better. i hate that he won.



A robber stole Umar Ibn Al-Khattab’s turban in the marketplace and ran. Umar ran after him shouting

'I bear witness to Allah that I have given it to you, so say “I accept it” so that the Hellfire does not touch you!'

"You wanna know what living life to the fullest actually is? It’s waking up on a Monday morning with no complaints. It’s knowing you always deserve to laugh. It’s doing what feels right no matter what. It’s doing what you want to, no matter how stupid you look. It’s about being yourself, ‘cause no one can tell you you’re doing it wrong."

"Their intelligence. Elephants understand that ivory is the reason they’re being killed. There are very, very few big bulls with big ivory left in the world, and the two or three still in Tsavo have become nocturnal. I’ve seen a bull with big tusks by the road turn his back, trying to hide the ivory."

What’s the biggest misconception people have about elephants?

a person
will inflict
so much
pain in your
body that
you’ll have
to nurse
yourself back
to health by
and avoiding
calls from the few
who love you.

Weeks crawl by,
and you realize
that nothing will
fix the damage
they’ve done
to your soul;
your fingernails
become enemies,
the mirror feels
like a goddamn trap
to show you what
you’re missing,
and food feels
like a savior,
or rat poison.

a person
hurts you
so much,
that it’s better
to pretend
like they

Never ever ever ever ever ever tell a person in recovery that what they’re going through isn’t a big deal or that because you see a good day, they’re 100% fine. Just don’t.

And if you’re in recovery, never ever ever ever listen to someone who tells you your problems aren’t real. You’re worth more than that and you’re fighting a battle harder than anyone can imagine. Keep going.
