How many knew that Egypt just selected a new Grand Mufti?
Just one of the most important positions in Islam, that’s all.
Islam is not just a “religion,” in that it exhorts you to simply ritualize acts, it is a religion which exhorts you to act.
Islam is not belief in imaginary, magical stories in scripture; it is the means towards changing your reality, by learning from the past to understand the future.
The sun is so beautiful in the early morning. It does something to the trees that you don’t see any other time of the day. I think we all want the same thing: A quiet peace. Maybe just even a single moment of it. To close our eyes and just be okay.
For even a single second, to not feel worried about something, sad about something. To not crave something we don’t—or can’t—have. Just to be there, okay. Still. Silent. On the inside. Maybe that’s what’s so beautiful about this time of the day: The stillness.
And the hope that maybe this day will be different."
