You know those plain, brown plastic Bata sandals? The ones outside of the men’s section in any Pakistani masjid? The ones that everyone has a pair of to do wudu in, the ones that everone’s father has owned at least once and everyone’s mother has ‘borrowed’ around the kitchen a few times? I saw one yesterday.
It was lying on its side in the fast lane on Emirates Road, ten feet from a white sheet with a growing red stain on it. Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ileihi Rajioon. Verily wa are God’s and to Him we return.
