Today the sermon at my mosque was about domestic violence. The Sheikh mentioned a hadith where a man asked Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) about a man who hit his wife, and the Prophet said that he was one of the worst Muslims.

There is this couple that my family has been friends with for a few years….

All that occurs to Mankind is by Allah’s Permission,

Allah informs us as He did in Surat Al-Hadid,

﴿مَآ أَصَابَ مِن مُّصِيبَةٍ فِى الاٌّرْضِ وَلاَ فِى أَنفُسِكُمْ إِلاَّ فِى كِتَـبٍ مِّن قَبْلِ أَن نَّبْرَأَهَآ إِنَّ ذَلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ ﴾

(No calamity occurs on the earth or in yourselves but it is inscribed in a record before We bring it into existence. Verily, that is easy for Allah.) (57:22) Allah said here,

﴿مَآ أَصَابَ مِن مُّصِيبَةٍ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ﴾

(No calamity occurs, but by the permission of Allah,) Ibn `Abbas said; “By the command of Allah,” meaning from His decree and will.

﴿وَمَن يُؤْمِن بِاللَّهِ يَهْدِ قَلْبَهُ وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَىْءٍ عَلِيمٌ﴾

(and whosoever believes in Allah, He guides his heart. And Allah is the All-Knower of everything.) meaning, whoever suffered an affliction and he knew that it occurred by Allah’s judgement and decree, and he patiently abides, awaiting Allah’s reward, then Allah guides his heart, and will compensate him for his loss in this life by granting guidance to his heart and certainty in faith. Allah will replace whatever he lost for Him with the same or what is better. `Ali bin Abi Talhah reported from Ibn `Abbas,

﴿وَمَن يُؤْمِن بِاللَّهِ يَهْدِ قَلْبَهُ﴾

(and whosoever believes in Allah, He guides his heart.) “Allah will guide his heart to certainty. Therefore, he will know that what reached him would not have missed him and what has missed him would not have reached him.” There is an agreed upon Hadith ﴿that Al-Bukhari and Muslim collected and﴾ which states,

«عَجَبًا لِلْمُؤْمِنِ لَا يَقْضِي اللهُ لَهُ قَضَاءً إِلَّا كَانَ خَيْرًا لَهُ، إِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ ضَرَّاءُ صَبَرَ فَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَهُ، وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ سَرَّاءُ شَكَرَ فَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَهُ، وَلَيْسَ ذَلِكَ لِأَحَدٍ إِلَّا لِلْمُؤْمِن»

(Amazing is the believer: There is no decree that Allah writes for him, but is better for him. If an affliction strikes him, he is patient and this is better for him. If a bounty is granted to him, he is thankful and this is better for him. This trait is only for the faithful believer.)

Of course, we had storms
Twenty years of love, it’s mad love
A thousand times, you took your luggage
A thousand times, I left the nest
And each piece of furniture remembers
In this cradleless bedroom
The old storms’ fits
Nothing looked like anything
You had lost your liking for water
And I had lost mine for seduction

But my love
My sweet, my tender, my wonderful love
From the clear dawn until the end of the day
I love you still, you know, I love you

I, I know all your spells
You know all my charms
You kept me from trap to trap
I lost you from time to time
Of course, you took a few lovers
Time had to be spent
The body just has to exult
In the end, in the end
It took us much talent
To be old without being adults

But my love
My sweet, my tender, my wonderful love
From the clear dawn until the end of the day
I love you still, you know, I love you

Oh, my love
My sweet, my tender, my wonderful love
From the clear dawn until the end of the day
I love you still, you know, I love you

And the more time goes along with us
And the more time torments us
But is it not the worst trap
To live peacefully for lovers
Of course, you cry a little less early
I go off the deep end a little later
We protect less our mysteries
We let less chance do
We are wary of the waterflow
But it is still loving war

But my love
My sweet, my tender, my wonderful love
From the clear dawn until the end of the day
I love you still, you know, I love you

Oh, my love…
My sweet, my tender, my wonderful love
From the clear dawn until the end of the day
I love you still, you know, I love you

thank you, ofthedeity:

I dream I’ll meet you deep deep down
The deepest point on Earth, Mariana Trench, ocean bottom
Between Nanga Parbat, K 2 and Everest,
The crest of the world, there you’ll be my banquet guest
Where nothing more can impede my vision
When you come I’ll see you coming from the world’s margin
Here there’s nothing of interest
The ruins of Atlantis just
But of you not a trace


I don’t think you’re coming anymore
We missed each other in our dreams
You dream me, I you
Don’t worry, I won’t wake you
Before you wake up yourself

Across the ice towards the North Pole is where I’ll expect you
Will be standing on the axis
From Tierra del Fuego in hard dream labour to the pole
There everything will revolve just around us
The Pole Star directly above me
This is the pole I’ll wait here

Only I cannot see you coming from anywhere for miles around
I’m waiting at the wrong pole
We missed each other in our dreams
You dream me, I you
Don’t worry, I won’t wake you
Before you wake up yourself


Please, please don’t wake me
Only as long as I dream do you exist…
Enlist in slumber on a ship
Course: Eldorado, Punt, that’s your home
Wait on the coast, look on the horizon
Until I at last see your sails there

But the captain is always drunk
And mostly down below deck
I can’t steer this ship in my wildest dreams
On a riff it springs a leek
In the North Sea it then sank
An iceberg drives me back
I think I’ll be waiting for long
Punt stays undiscovered


We missed each other in our dreams
You dream me, I you
Don’t worry, I won’t wake you
Before you wake up yourself
You dream me, I you

Don’t worry, I’ll find you
Before you wake up yourself
Collared in a doze I’ll grab you
And pull you towards me
For you dream me, I you
I dream you, you me
We dream each other awake
