Speech by Sara Minkara at the Muhsen Benefit Dinner on October 24, 2015.
Subhan’Allah, do you know what this is picture of? It is a man leading prayer reading a Quran based off of braille for those that are blind! Indeed, some people may not be able to see with their eyes, but how many of us are blind when it comes to our hearts! This is truly a man who can see, ma’sha’Allah!
[And for those who are quick to complain, let us respect the fact that there may be a difference of opinion amongst the scholars when it comes to reading out of the Quran when it comes to non-obligatory prayers (like the Taraweeh) and remember, “Let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day speak good, or keep silent.”]
May Allah open and soften our hearts, Ameen!
A lust for vengeance blind the most reasonable people in the world.
Una sed de venganza ciega a las personas más razonables en el mundo.
Een lust voor wraak blind de meest redelijke mensen in de wereld.
Un désir de vengeance aveugle les gens les plus raisonnables dans le monde.
Ein Rachelust blenden die meisten vernünftigen Menschen in der Welt.
Yīgè yùwàng fùchóu méngbì zuì hélǐ de rén zài shìjiè shàng.
En lust för hämnd blinda de mest förnuftiga människor i världen.
Zhazhda mesti oslepit’ naiboleye razumnyye lyudi v mire.
Intikam için bir şehvet dünyanın en makul insanları kör.
Un desiderio di vendetta cieca le persone più ragionevoli del mondo.
Sebuah nafsu untuk membalas dendam buta orang-orang yang paling masuk akal di dunia.
