In a few days, the story of eternal Ishq is retold,
a story told by Zainab and Umul-al Baneen (a.s).
A story that has been told over and over,
for more than a thousand years.
And shall remain stapled in our hearts,
as long as every shia’s heart beats..

Standing in the city of Karbala, Iraq, The Mosque of Hussein ibn Ali is one of the oldest mosques in the world. It stands by the grave of Hussein ibn Ali, the second grandson of Muhammad. Every year, millions of pilgrims visit the city to observe Ashura, which marks the anniversary of Hussein ibn Ali’s death
"You see, Islam is the only religion that gives both husband and wife a true understanding of what love is. The Western “love” concept, you take it apart, it really is lust. But love transcends just the physical. Love is disposition, behaviour, attitude, thoughts, likes, dislikes - these things make a beautiful woman, a beautiful wife. This is the beauty that never fades. You find in your Western civilisation that when a man’s wife’s physical beauty fails, she loses her attraction. But Islam teaches us to look into the woman, and teaches her to look into us."
"Behold! My Ahlul-Bayt are like the Ark of Noah. Whoever embarked in it was SAVED, and whoever turned away from it was PERISHED."
- Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
Dear You, →
I don’t understand why I’m still obsessed with you. It’s been like six years. I haven’t seen you for like three. We talk occasionally but it surely isn’t enough to keep feeding this ridiculous desire to see your familiar face, stroke your unkempt hair, laugh and talk and cuddle with you.
"My solitude doesn’t depend on the presence or absence of people; on the contrary, I hate who steals my solitude without, in exchange, offering me true company."
Carpathian - “Monochrome”
Save my soul from the poisons of this world
Seeds of lust, desire and deceit
Bloom inside the darkest hearts
Spreading, growing towards the light
There is something about you
Take me up into your arms
I swear we’re infinite
No desire to be here
Just watch me disappear
So let the dark clouds roll in
Feel depression’s teeth sinking in
We’re fucking starving, we’re fucking dying
Digging the holes they’ll find us crawling in
When you feel next to nothing
You’ll die in the clothes that you were born in
On our knees we’re burning
While the world still turning.
"We make plans for the future when we can die at any given second, but we don’t make plans for the eternal life that comes after we die."
"One day, whether you
you will stumble upon
someone who will start
a fire in you that cannot die.
However, the saddest,
most awful truth
you will ever come to find––
is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives."
