"There’s no room for hopelessness. The struggle continues. This world was never meant to be paradise. God has created a world that’s meant to drive you to God. All of the hardships that you suffer in your life, if you believe in God, you will find those rewards on the Day of Judgement"
— Hamza Yusuf (via islamicrays)

A child is born for us and a son is given to us


Know ye not why We created you all from the same dust? That no one should exalt himself over the other. … Since we have created you all from one same substance it is incumbent on you to be even as one soul, to walk with the same feet, eat with the same mouth and dwell in the same land…

— Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words
