Among all that has happened, what really had resonated with me was our visit to the Mothers of Srebrenica. Their resilience, strength and hope for justice overawed me in terms of their patience through suffering and sorrow.

The journey of my soul​

 

 

This was the second time I had visited Bosnia and I’d argue, that it was more intimate this time around. The group that I had travelled with were from all backgrounds, invested in causes for justice and the search for truth. Smajo, Armin and Selma were brilliant in hosting us and showing us around various places meeting various people.

Among all that has happened, what really had resonated with me was our visit to the Mothers of Srebrenica. Their resilience, strength and hope for justice overawed me in terms of their patience through suffering and sorrow. They were hospitable and generous, and were not just The Mothers of Srebrenica, but our mothers too. A mother nurtures her child into becoming wholesome spiritually regardless of life’s worries. It’s fair to say that sitting in their company had filled me with spiritual wholesome in the search for truth and justice and reconciliation. I’ll never forget them for as long as I live and my prayers are with them as always.

The search for justice continues in this world and the hereafter. May Allah grant all those that had suffered the highest paradise. And may those that had lost their loved ones in this world be reunited with them in the gardens of Paradise. Ameen.
