“Whoever has offended you and then approached you to apologize, humility obligates that you accept his apology whether it is truthful or not, and that you leave his secret thoughts to Allah. The sign of generosity and humility is that if you notice a defect in his apology, you do not address it nor hold him against it.”

Ibn al-Qayyim, Madaarij as-Salikeen (Ranks of the Wayfarers), 2/338. (via rsvnr)

“A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions—as attempts to find out something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.”

– ― Friedrich Nietzsche (via psych-quotes)

“عِندَمآ أحَببتُكِ؛ أحْببتُ مْدينَة تَسكُنيها، أحَببتُ حُروفَ إسمُكِ، صَوتكِ، ضَحكتُكِ، أحَببتُكِ أنتِ و كَل مْآيتَعلقُ بكِ.
When I loved you; I loved the city that you lived in, I loved the spelling of your name, your voice, your laugh, I loved you and everything about you.”

Samir Giad (via pimpmyycamel)

Buying and Selling in the World’s Bazaars, Souks, and Markets

In The Bazaars of Hyderabad
What do you sell, Oh ye merchants?
Richly your wares are displayed,
Turbans of crimson and silver,
Tunics of purple brocade,
Mirrors with panels of amber,
Daggers with handles of jade.

What do you weigh, Oh ye vendors?
Saffron, lentil and rice.

What do you cry, Oh fruitmen?
Citron, pomegranate and plum.

What do you make, Oh ye goldsmiths?
Wristlet and anklet and ring,
Bells for the feet of blue pigeons,
Frail as a dragon-fly’s wing,
Girdles of gold for the dancers,
Scabbards of gold for the king.
Sarojini Naidu (1879-1949)
Known as The Nightingale of India
