Eid al-Fitr 1438 (2017)

Al-Hamdulillah, God blessed us with the opportunity to experience another Ramadan. This was a really special year and its memories will last a lifetime. I would also like to express my thanks, on behalf of Middle Ground, to the LA Times’ Frank Shyong for the nice write up on Eid. Also thanks to Ifran Khan for the great photos:

Stepping out of time.

Getting to know and understand who you are. And that understanding is independent of objects or people. Only then can you insert yourself back into the world and live with confidence and dignity as well as helping others to do so.
