I may be terribly wrong in saying this, but I feel like many of us have been raised away from our native homes for a very good reason. When I look at our generation of Muslims in the west.. I see frustration and third cultured beings.. People who never really knew where or how to fit.. We’re looked at as outsiders in our homes and in our native countries.. We have no sense of belonging to and I think we’re still in the process of accepting that.. And alhamdulilah. Culture has been standing over our deen for centuries and I don’t doubt that if our parents hadn’t migrated that we’d grow up in the exact same way and the chain would never have been broken. The only sense of belonging we’ve ever had is when we realize that we’re Muslim and I can’t be more thankful for that. InshaAllah we get to raise our kids with this sole sense of belonging as well and without the pressure and expectations of the ills of our different cultures that we’ve so often had to feel. I can’t explain how fortunate we are to feel so lost in that sense.
Who cares about relative motion anyways…
"But you don’t look Pakistani"..Ohhkay. I think people often underestimate how diverse Pakistanis are.
Deactivated twitter again :/
Yeah pretty much
The FBI caught a terrorist last week, but since he is not Muslim, you probably didn’t hear about it on the news.Talbot is a white, radical right-wing conservative who was arrested by the FBI on charges of “attempted interference with commerce by robbery, solicitation to commit a crime of violence and possession of an explosive material.”
His plan was to rob banks to fund his revolution, and then also blow up mosques.

So I dropped out of bio because I don’t need it for Engineering, and they placed me in some philosophy class. I think the content will be fairly interesting, the only down fall is the people in the class. They’re cool and all, but they’re not the discussion type. They will just sit and listen even when its time for a discussion.
Allah (swt) is the best of planners. What ever you are going through is only because ALLAH (swt) willed for it to happen. I am pleased with Allah’s plans for me, no matter what they are.
This is such a beautiful photograph.
