This was such a lovely piece

John Gravois, who writes in the Arts & Life section, wrote a beautiful essay in The National today.

Mohammed Amin called to say hi last night, just as we were getting ready for dinner. He asked how we were doing and reported, via the usual mix of broken English and Urdu, that he’s been under the weather for the past few days. Then he said he had to run and sing the athan – the call to prayer – at the tiny mosque by the fish market where he is the muezzin, and hung up.
