“Thank you to Umm Zakiyyah for giving us so many wonderful, inspirational reminders. Please keep doing what you’re doing, because you are saying some of the hard things that we want to talk about but we just don’t know how to verbalize. So when you post things that trigger our emotions and remind us of the good things we should be doing for ourselves and others, it’s a real eye-opener…Please continue to be our voice.”
