Yesterday the world celebrated the birth of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.)
We visited Fatehpur Sikri the night before.
It’s a world heritage site built by Akbar the Great that has so much significance in the Islamic world.
Akbar picked this particular site for his palace because it was where Sufi Shayk Salim Chishti — a beloved advisor — had his camp.
My son and I offered prayers on behalf of family and friends at Shayk Salim’s resting place.
Despite Azad and our guide trying their best, I succumbed to a very persistent artisan.
Shayk was looking out though — the pieces I bought were an extremely good deal.
Capitalism aside, the moments were priceless — we felt so fortunate and uplifted to breathe in the spiritual beauty.
