Sweet memories with the shakie!
Yes indeed jaweed! That day was simply an eman blast. Readers won’t notice, but we were sitting on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and it was nothing short of breathless. Coupled with powerful brother-sister hood, the only direction my faith went after that was up. Jaweed! We need to get the brothers/sisters, go again to that spot, reflect and pray Qiyam there.
Let’s do it next weekend! 🙂
