Another word of wisdom from Sister Yasmin Mogahed, taken from her Facebook page.
Allah hu Rabbi. Calming, as always.
“I’m sitting at the airport, waiting to board, en route to the holiest place on earth. Parting advice to you and myself:
Let go of your grudges. Let the bitterness die tonight. Make a decision today that it’s time to move on. And begin again. New, this time. Never forget that what has passed you by was never meant to befall you. And what has befallen you, was never meant to pass you by. Know that sometimes Allah withholds from you, in order to give you something better. Keep your heart focused on Him, and He will take care of the rest. And remember: you will stumble, but that’s part of the path. Keep going. Keep rising, and refuse to give up.”
