    Salamailukum brother,

    I am a later comer to your website ; however to see a brother write with compassion love and mercy for humanity with utmost conviction and love for Our Creator is inspiring. I am a keen follower of sister Yasmin Mogahed and it’s almost sounds sexiest to say to find a brother to rival that is subhan’Allah eye catching and eye reading !

    The heart has to have loved and be broken and to have cried to sometimes fully comprehend Our Creator. He is the knower of the Unseen and the mortal heart continues on the journey to seek Him. May you be blessed for writing such great articles and sharing it with us. May Allah(swt) reward you brother for all your efforts. Ameen.
