Allah starts off Surah Hujurat by addressing the believers…”O you who have believed…” This type of address is generally seen in Medini surahs or surahs that were revealed after the hijrah. Unlike Makki surahs where the ayahs are very short, the ayahs that were revealed after the hijrah become longer because Allah is addressing the believers, Allah is addressing those whom he loves and thus the conversation becomes longer. When you love someone, you want to keep talking to them, you want to carry on the conversation. Likewise, Allah prolongs the conversation with the believers, subhanAllah.
And Allah knows best.
"There’s the three “men of Middle Eastern appearance” who were detained by police at a football match because someone thought the way they were checking their phones was “suspicious”.
There’s the Muslim guy who was detained by the cops for filming in the Melbourne CBD (read his account over the The Drum if you read nothing else; it’s mildly terrifying).
There’s that mosque in far north Queensland that was vandalised, that mosque in Brisbane that was vandalised, those Muslim ladies in Queensland being told to “fuck off back to your own country” and having coffee thrown on them, and that carload of white guys on the Gold Coast who threatened to behead a brown person in the street because they thought he was Muslim (seriously, Queensland, you are not covering yourself in glory on this one).
There’s the guy who walked into an Islamic school in Sydney armed with a knife, forcing children to be locked inside their classrooms and hide under their desks.
There’s the spat-upon mum, the kicked baby’s pram, the vandalised car and the pig’s head on a spike — the pig’s head on a spike — that have been reported in WA. There’s the rape and death threats being made against Muslim women, and the indifference it’s been met with.”
And in both situations, He is making Himself discernible to you and approaching you with His gentleness..

Without the Beloved Muhammad Baksha
Life is nothing but poison!
The time for one of the five prayers came in while I was studying at a coffee shop, so I walked outside and started praying in the grass. When I went to prostrate, a man walked up to me and said, “Girl why you sniffing the grass?”
And this pretty much describes my life as an American Muslim.
