Are we conveying the message?

 “Convey from me, even if it is one Ayah”

(Sahih Bukhari 346)

As I was sitting in my living room trying to find some inspiration and looking at the clock hanging on the wall as the time passes by slowly, I heard a knock on my door.

Thinking it was someone from the mail to deliver some goods, I went rapidly to open the door (forgetting to firstly wear an abayah) and with my surprise I was introduced to a man not quite old, maybe around his 40’s (I’m seriously no good at guessing ages) and a lady beside him, holding a few newspapers and some books.

It’s a GIRL

“And when the girl [who was] buried alive is asked. For what humiliating crime she was killed.  ”                                                                                                              [Qur’an 81:8/9]

In the midst of chaos, when the sun is going to be wrapped up leaving darkness behind. When the stars are going to be from bright diamond sparkle to colored twinkles falling apart so fast…
