"Worrying about the dunya is a darkness in the heart, while worrying about the akhirah is a light in the heart."
-Uthman ibn Affan
This world cannot break you—unless you give it permission. And it cannot own you unless you hand it the keys – unless you give it your heart. And so, if you have handed those keys to dunya for a while—take them back. This isn’t the End. You don’t have to die here. Reclaim your heart and place it with its rightful owner: God. - Yasmin Mogahed
Neither happiness nor grief are everlasting in this life—but one of the two is everlasting in the next. Which one do you want? - Yasir Qadhi
Stop trying to make this life into what it cannot and never was intended to be: jennah. Only then will it stop breaking your heart. - Yasmin Mogahed
