The Prophet(Peace and blessing be upon him) said



“I have left you upon clear proof , its night is like its day, no one deviates from it except one who is destroyed, and whoever lives long from amongst you will see great controversy. So stick to what you know from my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the orthodox, rightly-guided caliphs - cling to that with your molar teeth, and stick to obedience even if it is to an Abyssinian slave, since the believer is like a submissive camel, wherever he is led, he follows.”


— [Ahmad (4/126), Ibn Maajah (no. 43), al-Haakim (1/96) and others - Hasan

“ Most difficult part of marriage… Life.

Life is hard and let’s face it, none of us walk into a relationship without issues and life throws curve balls all the time, which expose your flaws and weaknesses. So marriage is hard work, because it’s incredibly easy to become complacent in your relationship, because it’s so familiar and in the process forgetting that as life is changing you, it’s also changing the other person and to keep up with that progress. To remain in touch with your spouse’s needs and at the same time being honest about your own growth and needs… It’s the constant stopping and checking up on your relationship, nurturing it, but allowing yourself to grow is hard. It’s hard because life isn’t romantic sunset walks on the beach, it’s international deployments, infertility, relocations, financial strain, illness, occupational stress, dysfunctional families and nowhere to be seen friends. Marriage is hard because you promised that you will never give up and sometimes giving up feels like it would be the easiest thing to do. ”

الحب يا ابني له ألف باب ولكن الحب من طرف واحد ليس باباً،إنه وهم

Son, there’s a thousand doors to Love, but one-sided love is not a door, it’s a delusion.

degenaan/xasilooni
in Somali, this means:
‘calmness’, ‘stillness’,’peaceful’.

-

i am drawn to men with calm faces,
silent bodies and still eyes.
men with peaceful aura’s that suggest
they must know God better than most-
must practice patience,
and prayer longer than most.

men who do not anger easily,
but are able to contain inside themselves raging storms-
who only whisper weightless angst
into the bossom of their lovers at night.

i have always known,
that one of these days-
i will fall for the calming voice and companionable silence
of a man who collects words
in order to thatch together meaningful speech
and beautiful thoughts.

and he will be the father of my children,
and they will resemble him more than me,
none of my swinging moods and jagged tongue
but all of his gentle strength.

because i find balance in them
calm men and women,
who teach me
to speak of pain with quiet reserve
and understand
that inner strength
lies in talking through-
and happiness
in finding peace.

I think the most painful realisation comes when you find that you cannot speak your mother tongue as well as you do the language of the land where you grew up. My English is evidence of this. When something as simple as a colour, or the name of an animal in your mother tongue leaves you dumb. Yesterday I could not find the world for ‘turtle’ in Somali, only after my mother reminded me, did I recall knowing it.


We betray our mother tongues, for the languages of nations who will never fully accept us. We let the strangeness infest our mouths until we forget how to accommodate our original tongues.

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”.

“ I won’t tell you that you’re beautiful. I’m sure you’ve heard that a million times, but I will say this, your smile is a house that I would like to visit more often, and your hugs feel like the home that I’ve been searching for my entire life. ”
