I don't usually comment on the acts of immense carnage that are more frequently taking place by misguided/deviant/ignorant "Muslims" because no one is accountable for what was done other than the perpetrators themselves. However, this latest event really shook me. To see people who had just been blessed with a child feel that their child was better off without them (especially after committing such a heinous act) is highly disturbing

My father passed away just over 2 weeks ago after a year and a half battle with cancer. I saw my strong and very independent father have what he prided himself with most ripped away from him...that being his independence. But Allah did not take away his strength (though he could have if He had chosen to).
My father was not necessarily the most religious man and before he got sick I truly worried for him. However, after seeing the pain and suffering that he faced over the last year and a half I feel at ease that Allah's blessings for how my dad withstood the hardship with strength and grace will absolve him of any and all misdeeds he may have performed or things he may have not partook in.

Is it me or are others feeling the lack of enjoyment this Ramadan? I haven't really enjoyed Ramadan for a number of years. Upon thinking of the last time I enjoyed Ramadan I can trace it back to about 5 years ago when would go for taraweeh prayers (night prayers) in this tiny little shack of a building. There we would pack in over 100 people. It was hot and uncomfortable but there was a real sense of community.
