Al-rahmani Al rahim.
Has become one of my favorite phrases.
I do not know much about Islam, but during ramadan, I took time out to search out the meaning of that phrase.
And I fell in love with it.
The Muslims say every prayer in the name of a God, who is merciful and compassionate to the children under him and a God who always causes good to be done.
I find it intricately beautiful.
That even though I am unworthy, the God I pray to is making sure everything is good for me- the most
I totally understand why the Muslims take prayer, seriously.
Because I would if I knew the person I was asking for anything is my corner the most, I would be talking to him all the time.
Bismillah Al'Rahman Al'Rahim
