What the books are actually like
Just a reminder:
When Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) was travelling on the road with his cousin, Al-Fadl ibn Abbas, a woman stopped him to ask him a question. The woman was very beautiful, and Al-Fadl couldn’t help but stare at her.
Seeing this, Prophet Muhammad reached out his hand and turned his cousin’s face away.
He didn’t tell the woman to cover her face.
He didn’t tell her to change her clothing.
He didn’t tell her that her appearance was too tempting or indecent.
He averted his cousin’s impolite stare.
THE FOOT IS KILLING ME
'I think maybe everybody falls,' I say. 'I think maybe we all do. And I don't think that's the asking.'
I pull on her arms gently to make sure she’s listening.
‘I think the asking is whether we get back up again.’
And the water’s rushing by and we’re shaking from the cold and everything else and she stares at me and I wait and I hope.
And I see her step back from the edge.
I see her come back to me.

I would look so cute on you.
You still have a lot of time to make yourself be what you want.
