I just want to be lazy with you and cuddle in bed, and watch movies all day.
Ah best part about marriage. Alhamdulillah. Nothing beats this.
Tumblr has taught me that most Muslim women, for some strange reason, are obsessed with cats. And now I am a bit afraid that after marriage my wife might turn into a crazy cat lady, constantly nagging me to buy her 10 cats so she can have cat parties, or whatever it is that crazy cat women do..
When my husband and I were getting to know each other, I told him we were gonna adopt a cat after we get married. He agreed. He’s a keeper.
Awks when this got +500 notes.
Brought me to tears sooo beautiful !!! Adding it to my faves
Imam Khomeini (r.a.) and his love towards his wife
Imam’s wife would say, “I was never woken up by Imam praying Salatul Layl because he would never switch on the room light. When he would go to do wudhoo, he would place a sponge in the sink under the tap so that the sound of the falling water would not wake me.”
Agha always offered me the better place in the room. He would not start eating until I came to the dinner table. He would also tell the children:
‘Wait until Maa comes.’
He was not even willing that I should work in the house. He would always tell me: ‘Don’t sweep.’ If I wanted to wash the children’s clothes at the pond, he would come and say: “Get up, you shouldn’t be washing.”
On the whole, I have to say that Imam did not consider sweeping, washing dishes and even washing my children’s clothes as part of my responsibilities. If out of necessity I sometimes did these, he would get upset considering them as a type of unjust dealing towards me. Even when I entered the room, he would never say: ‘Close the door behind you,’ but waited till I sat down and then would himself get up and shut the door.
His daughter Siddika says: My father had an extraordinary respect for my mother. In the period of 60 years of living together, he did not even reach for food (on the dinner table) before his wife, nor did he have even the smallest expectation from her. I can even say that in the period of 60 years of living together, at no time did he even ask for a glass of water, but would always get it himself.
He behaved this way not only with his wife but also with all of us who were his daughters. If he ever wanted water we would all enthusiastically run to get it, but he never wanted us to bring and give him a glass of water in his hand.
During the difficult last days of his life, each time he would open his
eyes, if he was capable of speaking, he would ask: ‘How is Khanom?’ We would reply: ‘She is good. Shall we tell her to come to you?’ He would answer: ‘No, her back is hurting. Let her rest.’
Here is one of the letters he wrote to her:
To my beloved wife,
Imam Khomeini O’ I die for you. I have always remembered you when you – the light of my eyes and strength of my soul- have been away from me. Your pretty face is shining in my heart like in a mirror…..
I really miss you here in Beirut. You can find a lot of beautiful places to visit in the city and at the sea. What a pity that my dearest is not with me……
This has been a good journey so far trip but you are really and truly missed. I miss our son, Seyyed Mustafa. I pray that God will protect you both.
I love you so much.
Duas & Salaams
How do children respond to their parents’ with “what?”
I once thought about responding that way when I was like 5, my mom grabbed me with a death grip and said:
“Osama, when I call you, there are three possible responses: Yes; na’am [formal yes in Arabic]; and effendum [super formal yes in Egypt].”
