I felt an incredible about of frustration in even putting together this blog post,

Even when most of it is only selecting and embedding relevant tweets.

Why ?

Why is this Frustrating ?

Not only for me blogging,

but for every Peel Region Muslim trying secure their first vaccine dose,

Because . . .


أَحَسِبَ النَّاسُ أَن يُتْرَكُوا أَن يَقُولُوا آمَنَّا وَهُمْ لَا يُفْتَنُون

Do people think once they say,

“We believe,”

that they will be left without being put to the test ?

— Surah Al-`Ankabūt (The Spider),  Qur’an 29:2
