Getting close to someone is scary. Falling in love with someone is scary. Trusting someone is scary. Giving someone power to break your heart is scary and most importantly life, life is the scariest.

Next time a blocked number calls you answer like this: “Jim’s whore house. You got the dough, we got the hoe.”
Why does this not have any notes?

“Henderson’s Morgue, you stab em, we slab em, this is Eight Ball speaking.”
“Texas crematorium you kill ‘em we grill ‘em how can I direct your call?”

Anonymous asked: What do you think about that video?
@5 hours ago with 24 notes
I think both sides make good points.
My problem is that some people are just deliberately looking for something to start a fire out of. You know, when I first watched that video just before I went to bed a couple of nights ago, it made me feel so happy. It was such a heartwarming thing to see, honestly. I came close to tears, because I didn’t focus on sisters dancing or on the music but rather a community of Muslims on the other side of the world, being as they are. They made the choice to show that side of themselves, and that’s on them alone. I agree that some clips were of poor taste but guess what, that’s my personal opinion. Doesn’t mean I can now post criticism about it, and it certainly does not deserve to be blown completely and utterly out of proportion. It was never meant to be a video about Islam, it was meant to be a video about Muslims. And 1.7 billion of us make one heck of a diverse group so don’t tell me when we show Muslims, we only show those who fit the specific ‘devout Muslim’ requirements. There were men dancing in that video too, so why has this been only about the women? Why do I see brothers going around posting pictures of themselves smoking, but there are no comments about the fact that it’s a harmful act? Yet when a sister does the same thing, the comments are flooded with self-righteous people simply eager to share a piece of their mind? Does adab only apply when brothers are at fault? Surely we can be more respectful than that, especially when we love to talk about how Islam advocates equality for everyone but unknowingly become hypocrites when it is time to spare our judgement upon seeing sisters acting or dressing in a way we disapprove of when we have literally nothing to do with it. All I’m saying is that if we’re going to follow the rules, we should do it properly. Stop judging, give naseehah in private, mind your own business. Then go do something to actually help the Ummah because wallahi, everyone can talk. But when it comes to actually doing something beneficial towards our place in this world, we suddenly don’t have the time for it.
We must be an inclusive global community. Those who say we don’t need things like these, in my opinion, are completely wrong. In amidst of the terrible things occurring around the world with Burma, Syria, Egypt, Palestine to name a few, it is important that we balance it out with lighthearted, joyful content. We are more productive as a people when we are positive than we can ever hope to be with sadness or negativity in our hearts. I’m currently undertaking the same project myself, and I think I’ll make some minor changes to the content of the video in order for it to be truly appreciated for what it is, a collage of happy people we share our faith with and call our brothers and sisters.
I will undoubtedly receive criticism for this, and I welcome it because I am a Muslim who is not immune to error just like the rest of us.
