San francisco

بِسْــــــــــــــــــــــمِ اﷲِارَّحْمَنِ ارَّحِيم I've never walked down a street feeling so terrified as this one yet, hence avoiding my own kind. It's the worst feeling ever. Travelling leaves me ruminating about other people...but utmostly about myself. Khabbaab ibn al-Aratt (RA) said: "We complained to the Messenger of Allah (SAW) when he was reclining on his cloak in the shade of the Ka'bah. We said to him: "Why do you not ask Allah to help us (grant us victory)? Why do you not pray to Allah for us?" He said, "A man from the people before you would be placed in a hole dug for him, then they would bring a saw and cut his head in two, yet that would not make him renounce his faith. They would use an iron comb to drag the flesh and nerves from his bones, yet that would not make him renounce his faith. By Allah, this matter will be completed (i.e. Islam will be perfected and will prevail) until a rider travelling from Sana' to Hadramawt will fear nobody but Allah or the attack of a wolf on his sheep, but you are too impatient." [Bukhari]
