One of the best jobs I’ve ever had was as a carer for the elderly. Alhamdulilah for those who do this role, I cannot express how amazing and important these workers are.
The elderly are often forgotten or neglected, yet they require the most amount of care. Its such a distressing sight to see a once independent individual, just as you and I are now, be completely bed bound and reliant on the kindness of a stranger for the most intimate of actions such as cleaning and feeding. I have a sadness in my heart for the neglect of the elderly by their own families, who see them as a burden to their lives.
Is this how we treat the very same people who raised us and our parents?
May Allah swt grant them shifa and mercy in old age, and forgiveness to those who do the unglamorous jobs of helping them.

god gifted me with thick eyebrows of dark hair and for that reason i am #blessed to have endured my awkward eyebrow phase that every brown girl goes through as a preteen when she is unaware of how to handle and fully embrace this incredible power of having amazing natural brows that need no eyebrow pencil magic

sisters don’t let sisters tweeze their eyebrows into oblivion out of shame and embarrassment caused by white girls with nonexistent eyebrows

Join the thick eyebrows crew

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي ظُلْماً كَثِيراً، وَلَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ، فَاغْفِرْ لِي مَغْفِرَةً مِنْ عِنْدِكَ وَارْحَمْنِي إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ

dawahforallah:

O Allah, I have greatly wronged myself and
no one forgives sins but You.
So, grant me forgiveness and have mercy on me.
Surely, you are Forgiving, Merciful
