Anjel Jibreel II

The Prophetﷺ was asked how does the revelation come? He said when Allah desires to speak the words of revelation, there is a loud noise through the heavens. It’s like chains pulling over mount safa (imagine the severity of chains pulling over a mountain). He then said the angels of the heavens are overtaken by […]

Angel Jibreel

I’m going to talk to you about one of my favourite persons in the world. Well he probably doesn’t qualify as a person because he is an angel. Literally. Angels are beings I spend an unusual amount of time thinking about. They are frequently on my mind; the ones taking account on my sides, the ones protecting […]

The Outsider

There’s this problem I have, it’s either I say very little or too much. I take very hot showers or freezing cold ones. I eat very little or too much.
