Winter is the Season of the Believer

Dome of the Rock covered in snow

The Dome of the Rock Mosque covered in snow is seen from the Mount of Olives, 31 January 2008. Blankets of snow that year brought the Holy City of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and other cities across the Middle East grinding to a halt as icy weather gripped the mainly desert region.

“The best season to a believer is the winter, its nights are long for those who wish to pray, and its days are short for those who wish to fast.” – Imam al-Hasan al-Basri (rahimahullah)
