There are days when you dont feel like praying. When your soul feels dark and your heart feels down. Those are the days when you need to pray. Those are the days when you need it most. And if you find the strength to bow before your Lord in those days, you have defeated a big part of your nafs and taken a huge step towards your Lord. So pray no matter what. Lead your heart to prayer and one day your heart will lead you to prayer.
We don’t need to replace our history with myths to validate ourselves and our cultures. Keep it real.
This is literally why I get super annoyed with all those ridiculous ancient egypt memes like pls shut the fuck up and stop using dead people in your bs respectability politics
This is because people have been taught to hate West Africa as a less-pretty, less-civilized, less-romantic-sounding region of Africa.
It’s why some of these folks can list all of the Egyptian gods, pharaohs, and lineages, but can’t tell you shit about the Mali Empire, list any of the Orisa, or know jackshit about the Kingdom of Benin.
Because West Africa is demonized as where all the ‘savages of Africa’ come from.
Also Nubians aren’t a thing of the past. They’re still here. Why do people act like they’re dead or something?
