    Part 2: Reflections From Iraq: The Ziyareh

    The word Ziyarah (زيارة) originates from the Arabic زور literally translating as “to visit, or to meet” referring to the pilgrimage undertaken by Muslims to places associated with the Holy Prophet Mohammed (saw), his family, and other venerated figures within Islam. Interestingly, a closely associated Arabic term زيار rather aptly takes the meaning of ‘aid or […]

    Resurrected from the soil of suffocation

    I wake up in a society that shuns me, it shuns my religion and distorts my place within it until everyone is lead to believe that my religion actually oppresses me. A sad reality. My religion has been established to give my kind liberty and lift us from the soil society buried us in. My […]

    I recently returned home after having been away for ten days. The taxi from the airport hastily brought me home. I walked up the driveway dragging my dusty suitcase and rang the doorbell nervously. He came running to the door at the sound. I realised then that I had missed the patter of his small […]

    A question of history: Why Srebrenica?

    I recently attended the “Mothers of Srebrenica”; one of hundreds of events marking Srebrenica Memorial Week in the UK, commemorating the 20th anniversary of the 1995 Srebrenica genocide. The Srebrenica genocide is the single greatest atrocity to take place on European soil since the Second World War. Yet despite the enormity of what occurred, it […]

    The Blind Woman

    We are all seekers of something one way or the other. We beg, we steal, we grab, or we do it tactfully, we always want something from others. We look upon each other for all kinds of help. Not necessarily in financial terms, but more essentially in the cultural, social, and spiritual realms. We build […]
