I miss Twins of Faith so much. I had so much fun there, I swear. Everytime I watch Raudhah on TV9 and see all the sheikhs and nasheed artists giving comments about Islam, I feel an enormous hole in my heart. I long to be there again, among all my sisters and brothers who have gathered together to gain knowledge and together increase our iman.
I felt an incomprehensible warmth when I was there. I could see the unity among us and I could see why Islam prospered during the times of our prophet and his sahabah. The love among each other was so strong and the country was built on such a strong foundation of love and respect towards each other. Unlike the world now, where all the politicians are bashing each other and all.
The amazing thing about Islam is that, you can come from any country, whether China, Japan, America, or anywhere else, but you can feel a special connection with them. That is one of the main reasons why I feel so blessed to be a Muslim.None of you will truly believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself (Al-Bukhari)

I hope everyone benefited from the quotes in some way. Remember dears, Allah loves us all. Don't you ever forget that. If you feel far from Allah, remember that Allah has never moved an inch.
