There is a beautiful quote that I once read by Mawlana Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, the scholar and poet, and he says, "If all doors before you close, He will show you a hidden way beyond." Mawlana Rumi teaches us that we should never lose hopewhenever there is a door that is shut and which seems that it can’t be open. Why? Because Allah is al-Fatah and as long as we keep connected to Him, He won’t only open the door but show us a thousand other pathways. As I sit here typing this, in the city of Muhammad Al-Fatih, I am constantly reminded of the power of Al Fattah - this young commander, his heart connected to the Divine, achieved what most deemed impossible when he carried his fleet over the hills in one night - to finally open the city and fulfill the prophecy of Rasulullah ﷺ. May Al Fattah open what has been sealed for us in all our matters.
