He smiled and thanked Allahu-Raheemu, the Merciful One, for curing the street folks of the prejudice they had nursed against him for so long.


I have not yet read this story. And they are often the subject of Ali’s work, which is wonderful.

After her third futile attempt, Abeeba had suggested to Sile that they use force to maklam the money.
