sometimes I have flashbacks of watching sunrise in Iran or waking up to the call to fajr prayer and I literally feel like crying.
there is nothing more beautiful than early mornings in Iran, especially in cities like Tehran/ Mashhad or other populated cities.
result of 5 hour skype session with friend: new and improved paragraphs for uni application, much much much more hope of acceptance, and a night spent procrastinating for an application that is due in less than 24 hours.
oh and I talked about something very personal, one I didn’t think I’d ever be able to publicly speak of: my struggle with the hijab.
I’m pretty shocked that I managed to write a paragraph on the topic, it’s pretty touchy I don’t wanna imagine them reading it. :/
just out of curiosity, but did anyone here follow my very first account? war-with-nafs/ maaryam74? This would be roughly two years ago.
January third - I am the color
of mint chocolate chip ice cream
but I’ve eaten all the chocolate chips.
I am calm.
February seventh - I am a bruise of
blues and violets today. I think it would
be best if I sat by the window.
These are unhappy colors.
April eleventh - I am turquoise, I am magenta,
I am every color in the rainbow.
April thirtieth - I am gray, I am silent.
May first - I am orange, the color of melting
creamsicles on a beach in July.
June twelfth - I am as yellow as the school bus
that will bring me home to summer. I am free.
Twelve years later, I still use colors.
The winter makes me feel cobalt blue, the ocean
turns me a seafoam green. Violets and purples
leave me uneasy and scarlet is a fever of fury.
Some nights I drown in shades of navy, denim,
and cornflower but other nights I meditate in forests of
harlequin and shamrock.
I’m so sorry I have no idea who he is. It’d be great if any of my followers could help you though.
Imam al-Shafi’i remarked, “There is a verse in the Quran that every wrongdoer should be terrified of.”
He was asked, “Which verse is that?”
He replied, “‘And your Lord never forgets.’” [Surah Maryam: 64]
