Thank you to everyone who attended the Carderock Stroll! Dar-us-Salaam wanted to plan a nice, easy, relaxing hike for everyone to enjoy including children, parents, and seniors.
Seeing children on their bikes, greeting the dear brothers and sisters after months apart, and admiring the beauty of Allah’s creation were the highlights of the weekend.
“The brotherhood, exercise, and just going outdoors was a wonderful experience,” Br. Nawaf Esayed, who completed the stroll twice ma shaa Allah, enjoyed the scenery being near the canal surrounded by the fall foliage while bonding with family and friends. He encouraged others not to underestimate the gray in his beard.
Allah says in the Qur’an:
“….Not a leaf falls, but He knows it…”
وَمَا تَسْقُطُ مِن وَرَقَةٍ إِلَّا يَعْلَمُهَا
It is a beautiful reminder that should strengthen your iman as you see the leaves fall. Hardships that you all may be enduring are not less significant than a leaf falling. Allah subhaanahu wa ta’aala knows everything, including your struggles. He sees you. He wants what’s best for you so, don’t forget to seek His Help.
