Today is my father-in-law’s 85th birthday. Happy Birthday Abbu! The milestone was an opportunity for Arif to share some reflections on his hero, and especially on the power of his dad’s prayers.
“Everything I’ve been able to do in my life is because of the immense power of my father’s prayers. There have been so many times that I could have gone wrong, but there’s something magical in Abbu’s prayers, something that comes directly from God, and that I feel gives me strength, gives me courage, keeps me safe, keeps all of us safe. There’s nothing more peaceful than seeing Abbu say his namaaz (prayers). I know that his prayers are for all of us and will keep us protected.”
