Seeing familiar faces - faces of people I don’t even know - at the masjid every week is probably one of my favorite things about my community.
There is this one lady, probably of African descent, who I see every week without fail. She’s always dressed in her Friday best, and has the air of being genuinely excited for Jummah. When she sits down, she always greets the people sitting next to her, and even the people sitting next to them. Her general attitude lights the entire room. Being the highlight of a complete stranger’s day is a pretty awesome quirk if you ask me.
I haven’t had the honor to sit next to her yet, but I hope one day I do.
