The Inner Most thoughts of a Somali Insomniac

"A little prayer for the strugglers (I’m with you): The Prophet (sa) would say every morning and evening, “Allah, I seek solace in you from hamm and hazn.” Hamm means things we’ve experienced in the past that sadden and worry us. Hazin are things in the future that scare us and sadden us. Allah is al-Qadīr and al-Rahīm. May Allah lift the hamm and hazin from us, relieve our burdens and grant us the faith to soar above dark times. Stay strong and know that there are others going through what you are going through, even Imams and activists. You are not alone! With faith, worship and community, you can do it - with God’s help, you got this. “Indeed, Allah’s help is (constantly) close.” Even though I don’t know you, consider my prayers as a crutch with you at every tear and sad feeling. My prayers are not strong - I’m in need of yours more. But everyone holding on to their faith amongst the rocky seas of life, I love you for the sake of Allah and I’m happy to share in the struggle with you. Have a great Sunday!"

The explanation of hamm and hazn just blew my mind. I’ve known that dua for years and loved it when I read the translation but now it means so much more.

"Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’ Do not entomb her in a pretty pink tower and insist that only the degree of her physical appeal may set her free. Teach her to fight her way out, to consume books and spit knowledge to lesser boys who insist she is just beautiful and nothing more. Teach her to love her body not to manipulate and put a price tag on herself as a defined worth she shall be immeasurable she shall be more than this. Do not let her break herself down when the boy in kindergarden hits her because he likes her. What are you really teaching her? Pain and love are not synonymous neither are pretty and perfection. Teach her to be kind to be harsh to be demure to be wild to be sensitive to be thick-skinned But good god, Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’"
