I noticed after having known him for a while that Ibrâhim was always happy, that he was "born happy" as he used to say: “In my culture, nobody experiences mental dejection,” he declared one day, “it is an illusion from the Occident. In my culture, we do not know the word despair. To even utter the word despair is like turning your back on God.”
He prays five times a day, sometimes more when he chooses to. He informs me that even the tiniest creatures pray like him, "only," he says, "we do not know how they pray; we do not understand the way they communicate, but they form societies like us and they have their own language."
