Israel’s New Racism: The Persecution of African Immigrants in the Holy Land
Another look at the inner workings of Israel’s racist apartheid state, which the US so steadfastly defends, with a specific focus on the tremendous antiblackness and Anti-African sentiments in Israel. This is a very important video to watch, in addition to educating oneself on all of the racist Israeli policies which are hurting and killing Palestinians every single day.
Still can’t understand how people can defend Israel after all this. Israel is a racist murdering criminal.
"One mistake most of us do when we start turning to Allah, prayers and Quran is that we anxiously wait for the “sweetness” of eemaan the moment we start. And when it does not happen, when our 5 times prayers seem forced, when the Quran doesn’t bring us to tears - we GIVE UP!

No yaa Ikhwaani! This is another big trap we have to save ourselves from. Indeed, the sweetness of eemaan will not come except with constant perseverance. Your standing or reciting will not make it happen instantly!
It is when Allah will see you constant in His Path, it is when He sees that you pray even when you don’t feel like it, it is when He sees that you recite His Word even when every inch of your brain tells you not to, it is when He sees you strive to stand in tahajjud though you may “hate” it… it is THEN that He will give you this sweetness and contentment as a GIFT from Him.
Reflect on the words of Sufyan ath-Thawri (rahimahullah):
“For twenty years…I struggled to remain standing in prayer at night. For those twenty years I never tasted the sweetness of the night prayer. It was only after that that I found comfort and sweetness.”
Continue ya ikhwaani and DO NOT GIVE UP. When the Lord of the worlds has not given up on you, how can you give up on your own self?"
Prophet Muhammad on the Heart
وإن في الجسد مضغة إذا صَلَحَتْ صَلَحَ الجسدُ كله وإذا فَسَدَتْ فسدَ الجسدُ كله ألا وهي القَلْب
Indeed in the body there is a lump of flesh, if it is good, the entire body will be good, and if it is corrupted, the entire body becomes corrupted, and that is the heart.

This is probably the coolest GIF I’ve ever seen.
now there’s some perspective.
I once saw a storm roll like this once. It was beautiful.
It was sunny as my friend and I were walking to another friends house and I hear this roar, look over and it’s a hail storm coming right at us and within seconds we were running in it to get away.
