Striving for Light

I have always taken great inspiration from the prophetic prayer beseeching the Creator to make us a source of Divine Light. I know these last few days have felt a little darker for many of us.

My prayer is that you and your family can take solace in the fact that people like you have built IMAN over the last two decades to be a source of light and hope in the face of challenging times.
