From Umm Sulaim, Allah’s slave-woman to my brother. Peace be on whoever follows Guidance.
“I have told you several times that I can not travel without a mahram!” He sighed, “I have not met anyone like you before. I don’t understand the way you do ISLAM.”

Of course he does! All he needs is the ability to understand that the LAW must be applied at all times!

My brother, you still have a lot of work to do.
May Allah keep you firm. Aamiin!!
