This Shawwal, let’s not let post-Ramadan blues keep us from celebrating all we accomplished this Ramadan or from seeking forgiveness for our shortcomings. Let’s teach ourselves that being grateful for the details can lead down the road to contentment.
We were in the ministry for about 10 years and then my husband decided to leave the ministry to become a social worker. We moved up to the North Eastern part of the United State and made our home there. So one day in October 2015 I took the shahadah...
