A Mosque Story: Wajahat Ali | Spiritual Appetite

A Mosque Story: Wajahat Ali | Spiritual Appetite.

This man, a former convict who was selling $3 Ramadan Cards with his friend who had served 37 years, stood up and gave one of the most beautiful adhaans I had the pleasure of hearing in years. 

His voice soared – beyond the bricks and mortars of a building that would not dare confine such a gift. We were all blessed and grateful to hitch-hike this voice that probably flirted with the Heavens, if even for the briefest of moments. 

As I sat and listened, I shocked myself by spontaneously uttering something aloud that I never imagined I would say inside an American mosque.
