    If you dialled 911 from a British ‘phone box youwon’t get through to any emergency service, including allah.

    I can call Him at any time of the day or night. I don’t have to dial a single number. I don’t need the 3-digit extension. I never get put on hold. The signal never fades. He never ignores my calls. He never needs to hear any explanation. He always understands. He always has time to listen. It’s always a toll-free connection. I always get through.

    MashaAllah, that is what I needed to be reminded of right now.
