Dr. Abdal Hakim Murad – An English Scholar commenting about the practice of mawloods on behalf of the Prophet (SAW): 
And that’s the distinction for the individual to whom Islam is a cold program, and the Muslim to whom Islam is a living reality where the spontaneity off faith has due expression. So you can say this is a kind of litmus test for the profundity of somebody’s faith. [That] if they are going to celebrate the Prophet (SAW) then we can say that they have a real understanding of faith. But if they say ‘oooh it’s a blessing and so forth but we are not going to do anything about it’ then there’s something wrong. There’s a problem; there’s a deformity, and you can see that in the kind of people who celebrate it and the kind of people who don’t.

Identities are social realities, not personal or physical facts. So when society gives you a label, you can try to tear it off, but you can also wear it proudly, wear it subversively, transform it, or even revise it – Steven Venturino

Sharendra (to moi): You’re like Obama. Unbelievably busy, but ironically available.

Oh, and stay away from Instagram—especially on powder days – Brenna Schwert, skier, runner, hiker, and all-around outdoors woman; out of commission for a year after dislocating her pelvis while downhill skiing.
