Real Life Muslim Girl

truth-set-you-free:

As we enter this blessed month of mercy, I give you this advice, to myself first and to you all: Don’t let this Ramadan be just a holiday of rituals. Don’t finish reading the Qur’an without it transforming you. Don’t feed your body at suhoor, but starve your heart of Qiyam. Don’t reduce this downpour of mercy to just a month of sweets and lavish iftars. Seek Him, you will find. Take a sincere step towards change, transformation, redemption. If you do, you will find Him in front of you. Find Him this month. He’s been there all along. Closer than your jugular vein. Look and you’ll find. Walk and you’ll arrive. ♥- Yasmin Mogahed
