Friday evening prayer

Today, Friday evening just before the dusk prayer (maghrib), my daughter and I sat down on the prayer rug to make a special prayer. We recited a rosary of ya Allah ya Rahman ya Raheem (O Allah, O Beneficent One, O Merciful One), and we prayed:

Protect us from the harm that hateful people can cause

Protect Muslims, undocumented people, Black people, Latinx, gay people, everyone from the harm of hateful people

But protect us also from becoming hateful

Help us understand this Trump election

Help us understand the people who voted for him

Help America become a safe place for everyone

Help America became a place where poor and working people don’t struggle and fail to survive


Of course Nox the cat was more interested in attacking our prayer beads, but that was his manner of participation.
