Photographed by Wolfgang Bellwinkel. I met the photographer during my internship in Germany. He wanted to show me some of his "published" work.. and so i flipped through his book.. this photograph captured my mind.. "this man must be a Muslim!" i said to myself.. i was so sure of it.. for the photograph contains lots of emotions.. I asked him.. where did you take it?! "oh! this one.. i took it as part of a project on the aftermath of the war on Bosnia! 1995-1996.." "a Muslim?" i asked... "yes..."
I can't remember what happened next.. but my Hamburg journal shows that i've been touched so much by the photograph.. in fact.. by the whole series of the project..
... I have nothing more to say but remember your Ummah in your dua'a during the last blessed nights of Ramadan.
