NOBILITY

The Sharīf Mowlāy Ḥasan of Morocco. He was a student of the great scholar and sage, Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Al-Ḥabīb (may Allah be well pleased with him). He is one of the most luminous, kind, gentle, loving, and awe-inspiring human beings I have had the honor of meeting. May Allah preserve and bless him.

"Love and Respect" is an intimate dialogue with Bay Area Imam, Yassir Chadly, about the role of culture in Islam. He speaks about the importance of an Imam or religious leader having a firm grasp of the local customs of a place before giving any Fatwas or religious edicts. He explains how love and respect are pillars of the faith and that if left, "the whole house will fall and Islam will fail."

Aid us in the light of this Muhammad’s way,
And make its glorious end as bright as its first day

Prayer of Light

O God! You are light, and from You is light. Place light in my heart and on my tongue and in my eyes and in my ears and in front of me and to the right of me and to the left of me and behind me and in my presence. Place light in my nerves and in my bones and in my flesh. Make me live in light; grant me light; give me light; make me light.

—the Prophet Muhammad, peace and mercy of God be upon him.

Is a dead person brought back to life by Us, and given light with which to walk among people, comparable to someone trapped in deep darkness who cannot escape?

The Light
My older brother Aiman looking for the light. This photograph was taken at the Baltimore Aquarium when my mother and I went to visit him. Unfortunately, he has yet to admit that this is a nice photo.

Lanterns
These hand-made lanterns are sold in the Tripoli’s Old City. I wanted to get some to bring back with me, but they are really expensive! I love the colors of the lights through the colored glass.
Lanterns are light, captured.
