When you embrace Islam and discover the beauty of it, you think all other Muslims see it as you see. You think all other Muslims are struggling to follow the right path and that they’ll be all so kind and so nice to you.

What causes these strong emotions regarding our parents? Why are we not happy, even if they are happy worshiping other than God? Why can’t we just let them be? If they disbelieve, it doesn’t take anything away from our hereafter.

Love has a deep impact on our level of spirituality

When the world seems to hate you, know that Allah (SWT) loves you.
