I am an Anglo-Moroccan Muslimah who loves languages, books, tea and Islam.
This here is a collection of all (read some of) my random musings and interesting finds.
I’ve been AWOL on my blog for a couple of days and although I visit my dash every now and again, it seems like I can’t do anything properly (or as my mother likes to say ‘bil itqan’).
I seemingly can’t revise and blog so I’m gonna take a proper break from Tumblr (and other social networking sites), insha’Allah. Of course, we’ll see how long this commitment lasts.
I’ve got my resits coming up in exactly a month and I’ll finish them on June 3rd, so the idea is that I won’t be actively blogging until the summer (ya Rabb, it be sunny by then - this cold weather is wearing me down!).
If you’re reading this, I’d appreciate all the du’as/prayers/positive vibes you can send! Not just for success in my studies but in the Akhirah too. This really is my last shot: it’s all or nothing and - despite my sometimes crippling apathy - I need to knuckle down, study-wise.
As for spiritually, that’s another story altogether.
I also wanna extend my warmest appreciation to every single one of you who bothers to read/follow this. Every interaction has been a little gem and even though some of the things I see on this site make me facepalm, other things bring me fresh perspective and new ways to interact with the wider world. For that, I’m grateful.
Keep blogging beauty!
Last night, I attended a live performance by Amir Sulaiman at Rumi’s Cave.
It was an intimate affair: cosy, low lights, packed out, seated on cushions, we were transported to somebody’s living room, not a hall, having a conversation on art and spirituality, love and violence.
what of the one who so loved the unknown
he wanted to know the unknown
and in his knowing killed his beloved
what of the one who so loved peace
he fought for peace
and in his fighting he killed his beloved
what of the one who so loved contentment
he desired to have no desires
and in his desire he killed his beloved
what of the one who so loved love
he hated hate
and in his hating he killed his beloved
what of I who so loves you

I always wonder what it must be like to be in a mainstream school with no D/deaf classmates. Does anybody hearing (other than his interpreter) sign to him? Are you studying at university or bac level?
My respect for certain people on here has increased massively, even if they didn’t mean to tell me about what happened, per se.
