    Let’s talk about death

    I smiled as I searched down the alphabetically-ordered index of my newly acquired English-Arabic Quran.

That word was […]

    Visiting the shrines in Iraq

    I looked around me. The sight of masses of people walking around in draping black garments, sitting down on fine Persian rugs, reciting, reading and contemplating was alluring. I stared up at the ceiling; I was mesmerised, almost drowning into the intricately designed floral panels, golden boards, stunning silver chandeliers flowing out from the ceiling with […]
