One of the most liberating things I’ve read in a while… “You don’t have to show the world you’re good. You don’t have to try to hide the things you’ve done that might not seem flattering. You just need to forgive and accept yourself and trust that others will as well.”

Been thinking a lot about the inevitability of death and how a lot of my fears in life stem from it…when did I start to fear death?
All matters are rendered to destiny;
What is tight may become wide,
And what is wide may become tight,
The outcome of something incurring your ire
May indeed bring you in the end a pleasing desire.
Allah causes whatever He does will
So do not object to His will:
Allah accustomed you to see from Him goodness,
So measure accordingly what already has taken place.
