“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”
Bob Marley

‎”A woman’s beauty is not in her features, the shade of her skin, or her possessions. True beauty is in her heart, in her Imaan, her Taqwa, and love for her Deen.”

So few men understand this. Even fewer women do.

Men are from Makkah & Women are from Madinah

An excerpt from the book, Love Unveiled by Alima Ashfaq.

Mekka is a hard, dry land - Much like this, men are generally dry and don’t know how to cry. If they do, they don’t want to show it and instead keep all the pain within them under the guise of masculinity.

Medina is soft, with water flowing beneath it and the rain is consistent throughout its seasons - Which reflects women who can easily cry and they’re not scared to show their emotions. In fact, under the guise of femininity they display their emotions regularly.

Mekka has a harsh climate; it’s rough and known to be a mountainous area - Men’s beauty lies in their masculinity, power strength and ruggedness. This is what makes them attractive and allows them to lead effectively.

Medina is lush, full of splendour and serenity - Women are known to be peaceful, full of serenity and their femininity makes them beautiful. 

Mekka’s main emotion is `izzah, they are full of honour and will do anything to protect it. They like to be respected and acknowledged, this is what motivates them to excel as individuals.

Medina is full of sukoon, the people are known for their softness. Women are generally more loving and caring; they’re soft by nature and will generally give more than they receive.

Differences in Qur’anic verses:

Mekkan verses are short, straight to the point and general.

Medinan verses are long, detailed and at times they keep going on and on.

We are all neuro-chemists.

Every thought, every perception, every feeling, every perception of our thoughts and feelings, and every perception of our perceptions are all neurochemistry. My concept of self is an ongoing complex pattern of firing neurons, and so is everything else within my experience.
