There is beauty in the sinner who feels guilt, for something in him says “There is more to me than this.”

If you ever turn around and find that it’s been three months since you’ve faced Makkah.

Do not run,
let it overcome you
and force you to your knees.
Your guilt is a mercy,
accept it, be grateful.

Sometimes you just have to take a day to shut the world out so you can open up to yourself and deal with the chaos inside of you.

People confessing their their deepest insecurities to a two way mirror

and I will still stumble over
good morning

before you consider yourself alive

I will shiver when you touch me
do not be offended;
you are the warmest person I know.
