My heart is torn between East and West. I live somewhere between the present and the past. I don't know who I am.
Just another human being biding their time on this earth. Passionate about current affairs, history, politics (particularly MENA region), religion, cute animals and food.

So I’m aware that a few of you are trying to learn and/or improve your Arabic reading comprehension, and I thought I’d share something I came across that I’m sure you’ll find to be quite useful insha’Allah.
There is a letter written by al-Ghazali entitled ‘أيها الولد’ [‘O Disciple’]. Importantly, the edition shown above is well presented in that it features the Arabic nas [text] (including the diacritical marks) with its corresponding English translation appearing directly beside it; such that, for example, the third paragraph on page 2 is the translation of the third paragraph on page 3 in Arabic (shown above).
I don’t usually post things like this but this is one of the most beautiful things that I’ve ever heard in my life. This athan (Islamic call to prayer) was performed in a church as part of an interfaith gathering of all three celestial religions. It makes me feel so happy, alive and peaceful.
