Hamid Mir is a Pakistani journalist. He’s consistently been anti-dictatorship, pro-democracy and dissented against the Taliban. He’s spoken in favor of Malala when some Pakistanis were drawing conspiracy theories and he constantly criticizes US policy in Pakistan and Afghanistan. In the past, he recognized and spread information on the genocide in Bangladesh in 71 by the Pakistani army. Today he was shot in his shoulder and stomach in Karachi. Please pray that he recovers.

There is a story which Jalaluddin Rumi tells of an ant that’s creeping across a Persian carpet in a mosque, and the ant complains to God, saying: ‘What is this, these bumps, and strange colors and patterns; this must have been created just as a meaningless obstacle course! What a futile thing to have made.’ But of course the carpet maker, looking at it from above can see the patterns and the purpose of it, and can see that the whole thing is perfect and good. And Allah is also like that. We often can’t make sense of misfortunes because we are two dimensional, we are at ground level, we can’t see what it all means, that this is a manifestation of Allah’s will which is always good and always perfect and always beautiful.
