This year has been one of the most difficult years for all of humanity and our planet — from climate change causing insane, freakish superstorms to unprecedented, insane levels of hate, bigotry and prejudice bubbling up to society’s surface because all of a sudden it’s become normalized to be a fanatical, hate monger. I could not think of a more peaceful, tranquil, steadying and promising place to end this year. The Prophet PBUH and his Companions fled to Medina seeking refuge from the hate, negativity and trials the early followers of Islam faced in Mecca. I too feel like as if I have come home. aH.
