وليست الحياة بعدد السنين ولكنها بعدد المشاعر … لأن الحياة ليست شيئا آخر غير شعور الإنسان بالحياة.

Life is not measured by the number of years, but the number of emotions, for life is nothing other than a human’s perception of it. Sayyid Qutb (via islamic-art-and-quotes)

Then when G-d asks [Cain], ‘Where is your brother Abel?’ he arrogantly responds, ‘I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?’
In essence, the entire Bible is written as an affirmative response to this question. Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, Jewish Literacy (via mermaideleh)

الحياة في ظلال القرآن نعمة. نعمة لا يعرفها إلاّ من ذاقها. نعمة ترفع العمر وتباركه وتزكيه.

Life in the shade of the Quran is a blessing. A blessing that no one knows other than the one who has tasted it. A blessing that elevates one’s life, makes it whole, and purifies it.

This is the first line of Sayyid Qutb’s introduction to his commentary of the Quran, In the Shade of the Quran. It is one of the most famous lines written in the 20th century. Sayyid Qutb (via islamic-art-and-quotes)

When you get punched in the esophagus by a fist full of life, remember that every year 2 million people die of dehydration so it doesn’t matter if the glass if half full or half empty, there’s water in the cup. Drink that shit and stop complaining. Rudy Francisco  (via dezeraycherel)

It really upsets me when Muslims define Islam by what’s haram. Especially when that’s how they teach it to children.

Amen. Preach it.
