Asalaam’Alaykum, 

If you have or know of a compelling IG account please let us know. Whether its yours or another.

I find it a bit tedious to search through #tags. Some of the best profiles don’t use #tags. 

Sometimes its nice for a bit of inspiration.

You can follow on @JustSidi or search Emerald Lantern.

Love & Respect

Salat al-#Ghazala :: Salawat of the #Doe
_
“O #Allah send #blessings & #peace upon our #master #Muhammad #ﷺ to whom the doe spoke of her state, while she was tied up in ropes, & was therefore able to go safely to her #children, & likewise upon his #family”
_
اللهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ الَّذِيْ كَلَّمَتْهُ الْغَزَالَةُ بِحَالِهَا، وَهِيَ مَوْثُوقَةٌ بِحِبَالِهَا، فَذَهَبَتْ آمِنَةً إِلَى عِيَالِهَا، وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَسَلِّمْ

Although this is from the Wednesday section of Shaykh Salih’s salawat #book, I thought the Doe themed Salawat would be nice for today [shared by a friend]
