Allāhu akbar. Allāhu akbar. Ash-hadu an-lā ilāha illā allāh." (God is the greatest, God is the greatest. I bear witness there is no God but Allah). I'm lucky to be living in the older side of town (that's my hotel in the middle of the photo), surrounded by mosques which 5 times a day broadcast the call. One by one they join the chorus, the male vocals of the muezzin callers rolling across the city like a gentle wave.
But there is a danger when one opens oneself to such fundamental change. Now I find myself standing on the middle of a bridge between two worlds, neither at one end
But this emotional push and pull is not for the faint hearted. For now I must remain on the bridge, waiting for the mist to clear a little on the path ahead before I can move. So I continue to quench my thirst for knowledge. I hope to take a trip in the Jordanian desert, to further my knowledge of Islam and the life of the Prophet (may peace be upon him), and of course to improve my Arabic language… inshallah!!
I'm sure the mist will clear at some point….. but at which end of the bridge?
