I imagine a future conversation. It goes a little something like this:

Children: Ammu, why are you a Muslim?

Me: Because when I do things to please Allah, I feel happier in my heart & calmer in my mind. Scary things don’t seem THAT scary. And sad things don’t seem THAT sad; I know things will get better.

[There are other reasons why I believe. Thought I’d share this particular reason after reading this comforting ayah.]
