Sufis In Paris

The unexpected journey that set a precedent for me.  I am certainly not one to book a flight the night before a trip, but I knew there was no other way. It was now or never. I took a deep breath and shot 186 mph to the land of my elders. There are certain countries I never thought I would need or desire to visit; coincidentally, France and the USA are very high on that list. What I learnt is that what I want to do is irrelevant, destiny shall decide.

If only we could slice a moment from our lives and live in them forever but I guess that is what heaven is for. As my trip came to an end the only consolation to the sad departure was the irony; I went to the birthplace of secularism to meet a man about putting God in my life.

Allah certainly has a great sense of humour sometimes!
