A Friday Reflection shared from our Suhba Online Program with Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui.
After searching for a masjid that turned out to be a street instead (Masjid avenue), then another that was locked between salah, then another, right under my nose that I missed, only to have it pointed out to me by a young man dressed in a white thawb…
…after what felt like an hour of walking…
I prayed, looked up, and saw this beautiful calligraphy on the mihrab-side wall facing me:
“Truly, the only religion with Allah is Islam.”
To me, in that moment, it said: Surrender is the only way with Allah.
May Allah make us true Muslims, like everything in existence. Amin.
Let us not forget to read at least the first or last ten verses of Surat al-Kahf today and send abundant salawat on Allah’s Beloved ﷺ.
