Inspirations - Susan Sahar Imady

Susan, or Shaykha Sawsan as she is referred to in Arabic, is my eldest sister. She was the first to plant the seeds of faith in me, the first to provide me with an image of Islam I could relate to, and the only person I know who can overwhelm my heart with a tranquil feeling without even having to say anything. As the years passed, I realised that I had to find my own path intellectually and experientially - a path my sister may not always agree with or endorse. But she remains, will always remain, my first spiritual love.
