A powerful call Azan #islam #muslim #islamophobia

A powerful call Azan







Anyone who's ever visited a predominitely Muslim country has probably heard the call to prayer. Most recently, in the news, there was a couple who sued over the call to prayer. They didn't want the Azan to interrupt their vacation, regardless that they were guests in a foreign country. Wether you love it or hate it, your opinion is molded by the influences of your life. But, what if you could hear it for the first time without bias? Without prejudice? Without any knowledge of what it meant?



What if you were an innocent 3 year old American child? The world still holding all it's mystery and goodness, you're still able to feel hope and faith without fear. What must it be like to hear the Azan in that state? Surely it must be wonderous. 
Luckily we have the chance to see that happen. In a video, popular on youtube, you can see her face. Stunned she looks around, trying to understand what she's hearing and where it's coming from, as she asked her father to explain. Her face hold so much emotion and fascination. She isn't offended. She isn't indifferent. She is enthralled by what she hears. At one moment she stops with a look on her tiny little face that is indescribable. Searching, both inside and out, for what it is she's hearing and feeling. It's pure. 
To watch it now, I can feel the amazement. And maybe, this little 3 year old girl can teach us all something. To forget the things we've been conditioned to think. To stop and listen. To feel.

#Egypt’s 1952 revolution and military rule, a history in photos

On July 23, 1952 a group of Egyptian army officers, calling themselves the “Free Officers Movement” engineered a coup d’etat and forced King Farouk to abdicate the throne and leave the country. After years of building tension between Egypt and Britain over control of the Suez Canal and the Sudan, the military power grab abolished the monarchy and began to build a new sense of Egyptian nationalism. Revolution Day is commemorated every year on July 23.
The Egyptian Republic was declared on June 18, 1953, but military leaders have kept a firm grasp on power ever since.
