A Day Of Days - An Easter Passover Boston Marathon Message from Muhammad

A Day of Days

To all my Christian and Jewish Friends and Family, I pray your Easter and Passover weekend culminating today, has been glorious and wonderful. In a time when so much tragedy and darkness seems to dominate the headlines, and the evil humans can often do seems to erupt in nearly every sector of the globe; people of faith, by whatever name called, might easily fall into despair and the flame of hope in our hearts might seem dim. But the messages of this weekend of religious celebration, comes as a reminder, that good will ultimately triumph - no matter the odds, no matter how unlikely it may seem. Darkness will not prevail.

This is a timely message that prepares us for what tomorrow brings. For as I sit here in Boston, planning to return again to the Marathon, where last year we sat in the stands near the finish line less than 50 yards from the explosion, and in that melee of moments that followed, where we did not know if we would survive, tomorrow we will return to the scene, like a million others from around the world; good people of all religions, nationalities, ages, races, and culture - all coming together, saying by word and deed, we will not let darkness triumph.

It is indeed better to light a candle in the night (the dark), than to curse the darkness.

Tomorrow, collectively, so many metaphorical candles will be lit, as to shine a light so bright; one the world can see.

Wherever you are: Pray for it. Look for it. Embrace and celebrate it.
