This is so fucking cute and I reblog it every time I see it and I can’t get over it.
وَ قَالَ عليه السلام وَ مَدَحَهُ قَوْمٌ فِى وَجْهِهِ فَقَالَ: اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ أَعْلَمُ بِى مِنْ نَفْسِى وَ أَنَا أَعْلَمُ بِنَفْسِى مِنْهُمْ. اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنَا خَيْراً مِمَّا يَظُنُّونَ وَ اغْفِرْ لَنَا مَا لَا يَعْلَمُونَ .

[Nahjul Balagha, Hadith 100]
In the past couple of days I have been seeing pictures of palms with “I Stand With Palestine” written on it and a passport next to it. I am happy to see all these different people supporting Palestine even with the all the biased media and lack of media coverage on the truth.
So I decided to do the same but without my passport, because I simply want to say that I am human and I stand with Palestine and I will stand with people of Palestine until they find peace, safety and equality.
The reason for not adding my passport is because from the beginning of time, countries/borders have been the cause of many wars and disputes.
So forget about countries forget about borders and put aside your abominable nationalism that usually gives you the feeling of superiority over others.
We are humans and we must all stand with the humans of Palestine who have been facing an on going gruesome massacre.
So, as a human, I STAND WITH PALESTINE.

I want to tell you how much I miss you but I don’t want you to know how weak I am without you.
"لسانك لا تذكر به عورة امرئ
فكلك عورات وللناس ألسن
وعيناك إن أبدت إليك معايباً
فدعها وقل يا عين للناس أعين”
-الإمام الشافعي رحمه الله
And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you’re in starts playing different tunes
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon.
