I Can Stand

Baby Meem is standing long before her sisters did. She stands on her wobbly legs, gives a few chuckles of pride, and then conks her nose on the wall or table edge.

Eid Mubarak


Oh Allah accept our fasting,
our prayers, our pleading,
grant us leave from this month
with a pure heart and cleansed soul.

Let the warmth of its worship
keep us fervent year long,
and may we be around
for one more Ramadan.
