السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته


ISTANBUL, Turkey - a labyrinth of narrow alleyways, leisurely paced beautiful people and crowded markets that showcase a myriad of foodstuffs from the succulent, to the biquitous to the more obscure. Combined  with off-the-beaten-path historical sites can keep a traveler  interested. If you love food and culture, there isn’t a better place to go then Istanbul.

Come, let us raise our hands, as well -  
We, the ones who do not remember the ritual of prayer

We, the ones who [do not remember] anything other than the 
warmth of love, 
do not know of any idol, nor any God.  

Come, let us beseech that the Creator of existence may 
fill sweetness in the morrow from the poison of today 

Those who cannot bear the burden of passing day, 
May their eyelids be unburdened of the day and night 

They, whose eyes don't have the strength to see the face of dawn, 
May someone light a lamp in their night

They, whose feet have nowhere to go, no path 
May someone illuminate a way to their sight

They, whose religion is lies and deceit 
May they get the courage to be heretics, and the audacity to question

They, whose heads await the swords of cruelty... to them
The power to ward of the hands that slay

The hidden secret of love is a burning soul... with which
Let's affirm today so the burning is eased

The words of truth.. which rankle the heart like a thorn
Let's proclaim them today to relieve the affliction
