my dear when i tell you how
the world is not permanent
nor anything in it
I am trying to tell you
that the ache in your heart
is just as temporary
as the temporary world
that caused it

Young Somali refugees living in the world’s largest refugee camp, in Kenya, have sent letters of encouragement to Syrian refugee children who have also had to flee their homeland. The young Somali students reside in the Dadaab refugee camp, in north-eastern Kenya. It is home to nearly 400,000 refugees, the majority of whom have fled conflict, drought and famine in Somalia over the last 23 years. Care International, the aid agency that provides many basic services at the camp, organised the pen pal exchange and delivered the handwritten letters to Syrian children at the Refugee Assistance Centre in Amman, Jordan.They offer messages of solidarity, encouragement and advice to their “dear brothers and sisters”.Perhaps the best line: “Be the stars and the new presidents of Syria.”

Prophet Muhammad (saws) was so full of understanding and he overflowed with compassion that he treated everyone fairly and he welcomed everyone even those who went astray and those who weren’t Muslims.
When did we become so harsh?
You were made for these times and this hardship, this pain, this sadness, agony, dismay, it too shall pass. It will pass like all the times you thought it wouldn’t, like all the nights you thought wouldn’t end, like all the tears you believed would never stop running down your cheeks. & through…
No I cant do calculus.. but I can tell you why you should eat an avacado a day, why you need to be hugged for a minute straight , I can tell time by the sun and use the stars as my compass. I know what tea to give you for what flu symptom and I can show you how old the trees are. Which berries not to eat. How to make a crown of daisies. Why you need to stop, and breathe. And love.
There has come to you Ramadhan, a blessed month, in which Allaah has made it obligatory to fast. During it the gates of paradise are opened and the gates of Hellfire are closed, and the rebellious devils are chained.
In it is a night (Laylatul-Qadr) which is better than a thousand months. He who is deprived of its good has truly been deprived.”
— Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم). Saheeh; Related by An-Nasaa’i (no. 1992), Abu Hurairah (رضي الله عنه). It was authenticated by Shaykh al-Albaanee in Takhrijul-Mishkat (no. 1962). (via nonchalante)
