Chances are if you ask a man why he doesn’t show more love to his wife, he would say: “I will love her more when she respects me more.”
And if you ask a woman why she doesn’t respect her husband she may say: “I will respect him more when he loves me more.”
The fact is it takes two people to make a marriage work. The husband has to show his love to his wife in order to gain her respect. And the wife has to show her respect to her husband to gain his love.
-Yasmin Mogahed (via islamicrays)
Out of curiousity, he takes a peek. Out of modesty, she looks away. Two in love but cannot say. She has been saving herself for the one and only. And in her eyes he can see innocence and purity. Out of this, his desire grows, the fire in him almost shows. He keeps his distance, stays far away, he wouldn’t want what is bad for the one who took his breath away. Late at night the door bell rings, her heart beats loud and her soul sings. The talking below, she hears so clear in her mother’s eyes she can see a tear. He has finally come to take her away in the play ground of love they will finally play. He will protect her and treat well like a real man should. She would try to love him, please him, and care for him as best as she could. This is love and how it should be, How Allah intended it to be. Love is love and it shouldn’t change, but everyday its meaning seems to fade away. Love is sweet and should have an innocent start and later on it will pour endlessly from your heart. Guard your heart, love, body, and soul and insha’Allah release them only to the one whose name is written in the sky beside yours ♥
It belongs not to those who wait, but to those who seek.
It belongs not to those who suffer, but to those who endure.
