This dunya wont ever let you choose Islam, I’ve realized. To follow Islam the right way, the way of the prophets, you have to distance yourself from the temptations. You have to accept that very few will understand and even less will like you. You have to be ok with standing out. Hold tight onto whatever faith you have, and continue to live for the eternal life of the Akhira.
Does anyone else ever feel like they’ve stopped liking the people around them for no particularly good reason? They’re still nice people, you still get along with them. They’re still valuable people…but they’ve diminished in value to the enrichment of your life? Do I just sound like an asshole? Probably.

Always pray to have:
1. Eyes that see the best in people.
2. A heart that forgives the worst.
3. A soul that never loses faith in God.
If you ever see a brown person wearing traditional clothing in public you should support their empowerment and sense of identity rather than taunt and ridicule them
