I know I did not write about this topic for some time however here it continues:
The weather in Romania was very nice, and hot. We went to town a few times my wife and I and you should have seen the looks. My wife got very mad at a certain point and she would jokingly say "i'm gonna punch the next person who stops and gives me a look". The looks she talked about was not your average stare, it was more like STOP, TURN, FROWN, LOOK, SHAKE HEAD.
We looked strange, for most people were naked and we were dressed. I wore my curta so my wife is not the only one who looks different. It was kind of nice though, because our daughter Maryam was taking heat off, because she is cute and people would regain their vision after staring at us, and look at her and they would begin to smile. So that was nice.
I did see a Muslim sister in the town, well actually two. I was really happy and amazed. My wife was also happy. My uncle told me that there are quite a few Muslims in town mostly of Turkish origin.
We did not wait to see more, we actually embarked on a trip to a nearby city to visit a masjid. It was great. We arrived there, and we could not find it at first, only to be told that we passed by it. The building did not look like a typical masjid. Once inside it felt like home. We were welcomed by a few brothers and we spoke to the imam. We also got some islamic literature in Romanian language, and of course we returned the next Friday for jumah. It was a great experience to hear a khutbah in Romanian. I also met a convert brother there, his name was Robert. May Allah bless him.
We met another Muslim family when we went to the mountains. That was also a great experience. It shows that Muslims are everywhere and if we were to do our job properly more people should have been Muslims by now. We ask Allah to forgive us for our shortcomings.
