    this must have shed the blues away. Excellent story.

  2. A terrifying experience turned glorious. Love it and so glad it turned out that way. 🙂

    The story was great.

  4. Hi Ali, i too thought it was a true story because a similar story really did happen to my son, Hussein. (he grew up on the lap of a Sufi Master.) As a young man, he used to go up to nearby Hawk Mountain to meditate and enjoy hiking and nature. A bear suddenly appeared on his path. He stopped and the bear stopped. (It was a black bear, not a grizzly, but still….a bear!) He just stayed calm and recited the Bisman for awhile and the bear grunted and walked away. Alhamdulillah.

      What an amazing story! I have heard of art imitating life, but this is the first time I have actually found that to be the case. Also, I am intrigued by your son’s growing up with a Sufi. Perhaps, if you’d be so kind as to ask him, he may share some of his experiences on this blog in a guest post. I am sure that would be of much interest to many.
